My son Maximus had just turned a year, and still had not slept through the night. He was a horrible napper, only 30 minutes at a time. I was doing everything in my power to get him to sleep longer during the day and at night. Max was used to being either nursed or bottle fed to sleep and then put in his crib. After he woke for the second time at night I would end up sleeping with him and nursing him for most of the night. He was cranky, and I was cranky. I was getting near to go back to work and was nervous about working shift work and having a baby that didn’t sleep. I had tried everything before and had bought numerous books but nothing seemed to work. I knew I needed to try something new and fast.
