I initially purchased the program to get out of the 4 months sleep regression. I was looking at different programs for a few weeks and the Sleep School one was the one that was the most appealing to me and was closer to my views on parenting. But after trying it for 3 days I realized I wasn't ready yet for the level of commitment (time and energy) it took. So I decided to start small by working on awake time and sleep environment and even with just that we saw improvement on naps !
We are just now starting to work on independent sleep (very slowly and very hands on)
Above all else, I have found the Baby Sleep School programme to be a 'safety blanket' for helping me to help my baby to sleep better. It gave me the confidence to put my baby down in her cot and walk out of the room, and just see how she did. And she did brilliantly - I think she was just waiting for me to give her a chance to fall asleep by herself!
The hardest part for my baby and I has been resettling, particularly during daytime naps. My baby was only sleeping for 30-45 minutes per nap, and getting quite grumpy, which indicated to me that she wasn't getting enough sleep. On the advice of the Baby Sleep School, I chose 1 nap - her midday nap - and have consistently over 10 days, resettled her to sleep so that she was in her cot between 1.5-2 hours. Over the past 2 days, she has napped for 1.5-2 hours during this nap herself! What a win :)
I have found that the awake windows suggested were a little short for my baby - but reminding myself that the programme is a guideline, and after playing around with awake times, I think we've found our ideal awake time.
What I love about this program is the flexibility it provides while teaching me the cues and important principles so I can figure out what works for my Bub. I’ve found myself so much more relaxed and confident now that I can follow the principles and do what works for my baby, rather than follow a strict routine. I also love that the guide is about more than just sleep, building in play and feeding to look at the day holistically. There’s so much information (and judgement) out there - I love that this gives the important stuff in a kind and compassionate way. Thank you!
This guide is so informative! I love that it provided detailed information about sleep and nutrition.
I am one week shy of starting the program but already I have implemented some of the tools and time line but made it age appropriate for him and it has helped his day sleeps hugely. It gave me the confidence and reassurance to keep doing what I was doing and staying consistent, and stop the self doubt. I can honestly thank you already. Looking forward to next week when bubs “officially” hits three months!!
