Luke Weir-Smith (8 months)
From about 4 months of age I started to feel strongly that Luke was sleeping far less than other babies his age. Life was not what it had been promised to be. I was exhausted and felt completely inadequate as a mother and wife. All areas of my life became affected and no one seemed to really hear me from family to friends to clinic sisters. I loved my baby, but also resented him and felt very guilty that I had any negative feelings towards him. I didn't have energy to do any of the things I had dreamed of doing with my baby and life was a daily exercise of "just surviving another day".
At eight months Luke was still waking four to five times a night for nothing more than want of attention (so it appeared), that was also when his days began at about 4:30am! Desperate, deprived, deranged and generally debilitated, Ian and I hauled ourselves to the Baby Love workshop recommended by our pediatrician - eight months too late in my opinion.
The workshop was professional, well organised and immediately gave us answers and much needed support. We left the workshop having already decided to carry out the training, but not for one minute actually believing that our little Luke could ever sleep through a night.
I arranged two weeks off from my work and on 25 May 2007 we began. Luke cried for one hour in the middle of the first night and slept through from the second night - until today! "The success of your night depends on the success of your day" they teach you - IT'S TRUE.
Luke's afternoon day sleep took the longest to get right and still does not always happen. That being said, I anticipated such pain and trauma that I had lists of things to do in all the hours that Luke would cry - it never happened. Sure there were difficult times, but never anywhere near as bad as I had felt on a daily basis before then.
Two months down the line we are a new family. Ian and I are able to work effectively again (we both run our own businesses), Luke is developing at a rate of knots and is so much happier - he only cries now when he is sick or hurt (not even when teething). We all have our lives back and I feel like I can now be the mom and wife that I want to be.
I only wish that I had known then what I know now. Any friend of mine who is pregnant will receive a voucher to the Baby Love workshop at her baby shower. We are planning a second child and I will use the Baby Love principles from day one.
Thank you Jacqui and Baby Love, you truly did give us our lives back and let us love our precious baby as we should.
