"Before working with Amy, our son could have several naps (30 min to 3 hrs each time) in a day by laying on a pillow on our lap in a rocking chair or by lying with him; bedtime was late (approximately 10:30 pm) and required me to lay with him in our bed. There was also one late night feed between 3-5 am.
We would try moving our son from our lap to his crib after a certain length of time to try to get him used to his own bed, but more often than not this would wake him. At some point, we just gave up and gave in to the lap napping. It was tough because of course, while he was napping, there was nothing else getting done. I had to align my bedtime with his.
Although some comforting was required on the first night, it was encouraging to see our son get through it without a feed and it was nice to have our bed to ourselves again. As the first week progressed, we saw that he was adapting fairly well to the bedtime routine - he was sleeping longer and could sleep through the nights without needing to be comforted by mom or dad. We knew that we were doing the right thing for all of us.
After three weeks, our son sleeps through the night in his crib, getting approximately 11 hrs. We are still working on lengthening his naps (under 45 mins). I can be more productive while he naps and enjoy evenings for me time as well as time to connect with my husband.
Amy is very accessible, caring and understanding. She is also patient, knowledgeable, accommodating and supportive. I think the service she provides is fantastic!
Thank you, Amy ❤
