Tracy, Scott and Kate (11 months)
In raising our little daughter Kate (as first-time parents) we had developed a bad habit of putting her down to sleep by means of a ritual of breastfeeding, singing and rocking. Every evening consisted of the above, typically lasting half-an-hour, and sometimes even longer. If she awoke during the night, the same procedure had to be followed by Tracy. Daytime sleeps were the same. We suspected that this might not be the best way to do it, but it generally worked so we continued with it. At the age of ten months, Kate picked up an ear infection, which threw her sleeping patterns into complete disarray. She started waking up every two hours during the night, and would only settle if Tracy used the process of breastfeeding, singing and rocking. After a few weeks of this, my poor wife was at the end of her tether from lack of sleep.
Then two things happened which help to change things: we were given Vivian's name by a friend, and we were lent a book about sleep training. Having read through the book first, we decided that we'd benefit from some practical assistance too, and spent a very informative 2 hours with Vivian. We came away knowing that we would have to do sleep-training with Kate.
We decided to start on a Friday evening. Tracy and I really questioned our own ability to endure her crying. The reality however was that Kate learned to fall asleep on her own very quickly. Since then it has gone extremely well. Yes, it was very difficult enduring the sleep training, but the benefits have been so worthwhile. We are now able to put Kate in her cot after her bottle, say goodnight to her, and leave the room. She "chats" to herself a little before dropping off to sleep after 10 to 15 minutes. The other advantage is that now either Tracy or myself can put her down to sleep - before it had to be Tracy.
For her daytime naps, Kate sleeps between one-and-a-half to two hours on a good day, and one-half to one hour on a bad day. Night-time sleeps are typically 12 hours, mostly without interruption, and she wakes up anytime between 06h00 and 07h00. This is the biggest benefit so far - we'd forgotten what it's like to sleep in to 07h00! Kate is also waking up much happier than she was before.
Thanks for the advice and support!
