Name: Michelle A. from Leader, Saskatchewan

Age of child or children we helped: 18 Months

Please describe your child’s sleep issues or why you contacted SleepWell Baby for help

I contacted Sleep Well Baby because my 18 month son, Emmett would not sleep throughout the night, he had multiple awakenings every night and would leave his room in the middle of the night.

He started escaping his crib at 1 years old and which we ended up putting him on a mattress on the floor but once he would wake up he’d leave his room. My husband and I would Co sleep with him every single night and it was getting tough on us.

My son was born with CHD, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. With his medical condition, being a puker, we didn’t know how to put him to sleep and keep him sleeping and know how much he could possibly handle.

How did you find or hear about SleepWell Baby?:

I heard about Sleep Well Baby from a lady I met in the air plane to Palm Springs, CA

Please describe your first impressions of SleepWell Baby:

I was blown away with the support and the need of them wanting to help us. The encouragement was overwhelming and exciting!

Please share your overall experience working with SleepWell Baby:

I am so thankful and grateful that i got in contact with them.

Once we figured out Emmett’s issues, what he could handle and what he couldn’t and received his sleep plan things were amazing! The first week he had 2 puking episodes, only had 2 longer awakenings, and stopped needing his middle of the night feed. By week 2 he was sleeping a solid 11-13 hours a night. We were encouraged to move his bedtime a little earlier as well, and did that ever make a huge difference.

For the first 2 weeks I would have to stay in his room, put my hand in him to keep him calm, and whisper our phrase to ensure I was there but now being 4 weeks or so in I lay him in his play pen, tell him it’s night night time and walk out and he goes to sleep on his own.

During our 2 weeks it was really encouraging to know we had someone to call and give us advice and support. I am grateful to have received training documents for so many different ages and scenarios which I can apply to my 4 year old and years to come with Emmett especially come camping season.
