My son was a great sleeper for the first three months of his life and then out of nowhere everything changed. I was easily getting up 10 times a night to put his soother back in after he would wake up screaming. I had been delaying calling Shan but knew I had hit my breaking point when I found myself spending more time sleeping on the floor beside his crib than in my own bed. Immediately Shan made me feel confident that this was a problem we could solve together and we made a plan to improve my son’s sleep.
The first two nights were rough because we took away both of the props that he needed to sleep, a soother and a swaddle. By day 3 he was going down for his nap in less than 10 minutes of crying and our bedtime routine had actually become easy and enjoyable. Shan was a great support and offered a wealth of knowledge along the way. There was no question that she didn’t have a perfect answer for and always left me wondering “why didn’t I think of that?”. However, I still felt as though she valued my opinion as my child’s mother. I would gladly recommend using Shan’s services and doing it sooner rather than later. You don’t need to be sleeping on a hard floor like I was!
