Our daughter outgrew the cradle (where we had been rocking her to sleep) at three months, and outright refused to sleep in her crib as it didn’t rock like her cradle. She ended up in our bed which seemed like the easiest solution at the time, where she stayed until we came to the end of our rope. She had gotten old enough that she was rolling around and waking us up constantly wanting to play or breastfeed. We tried a lot of other methods: pick up-put down, Sleep Lady, No Cry Sleep Solution, even Ferber. Nothing worked until we met Shan. Shan made us a plan that was easy to follow and guided us every step of the way, not just what to do at night but how to set up the entire day for success at night. We absolutely couldn’t believe it when Elizabeth slept through the night on our very first night of following the plan. Naps were trickier, as she was being rocked to sleep in our arms, but after three or four days they were stretching out. We still have our ups and downs, but now a bad night is 15 minutes of fussing before bed, where before a bad night was getting up and nursing to sleep every hour and a half. We couldn’t have done it alone, and we are all so grateful and happy! Our whole house sleeps through the night, and no one is sleep deprived. We’re a whole new family!
