Our little guy was about to turn three months old and the only way he would go to sleep – day or night was to be rocked. A typical day would see me try to put him down 4 to 7 times for a nap. I would rock him 30 – 40 minutes at a time and he would finally fall asleep. Then as I was about to put him down in his crib one of two things would happen. He would either wake up right away or sleep for a maximum of 20 minutes. Nights weren’t much better. He was waking 4 to 5 times to feed and it could take up to an hour after each feed to get him back to sleep. I was so sleep deprived and barely functioning. So many people would tell me that maybe I had a baby who just didn’t nap. I never truly believed this.
One day I just happened to speak with a friend who told me about Shan. I discussed it with my husband and we decided to work with her. At first my biggest hesitation was what if he cries. Am I doing the wrong thing. After a few days I knew this was the best decision I made for my little guy. It truly has been a life changer for us. We went from having a baby who never napped or slept well at night to having a baby who now sleeps 12 hours with only one wake up at night to feed. He also takes 4 naps a day that range anywhere from one hour to 2 1/2 hours. He is such a pleasant little boy now who is well rested and happy!! He now has a mom who is also well rested and happy!!
