We were sleep deprived and desperate for a good night’s sleep.
Our baby boy Lucas was never a good sleeper, we couldn’t make him nap for more than 20 minutes at a time and at 7 months old he was still waking up at least 3 times a night to nurse. He co-slept with us as we were scared to put him in his own room in fear that he would wake up his older brother. Let me say that we were desperate for at least 4 hours stretch of sleep. We were exhausted and it seemed like we would never have a good night of sleep. We had no time for ourselves anymore and it seemed that all day we were trying to make Lucas sleep. He was also very cranky and lack of sleep has been affecting him too.
My husband and I knew that we had to sleep train Lucas, but we had no clue where to start and what to do. All the information out there on sleep training just made us more confused and we just didn’t know which method would work for Lucas. By pure chance, we found Shan’s website, and we are so lucky and happy that we did.
During our first visit, Shan provided us with a personalized plan that was addressing all the issues that was affecting Lucas sleep. The plan was very detailed and we knew exactly what we had to do. First night wasn’t easy, but we decided to stick to the plan. Shan was there to answer all the questions the next day and make any adjustments. The fifth night, Lucas slept from 8 till 6! No soother, no rocking and Lucas was in his own crib in his own room. After that night, we had no problems with naps and bedtime, we would just leave the room and Lucas would fall asleep by himself! We are so grateful to Shan and everyone is finally rested and sleeps well. Our only regret is that we didn’t find information about Shan sooner. We would definitely recommend Shan to anyone who is struggling with their child’s sleep.
