Landon Shankland (11 months)
Dear Baby Love and Linda
We cannot begin to express our gratitude. We were at first sceptical about your program but could not believe that some families saw drastic results within just a few days, but now here we are... we now have our very own success story!
Landon was born premature in August 2013 and spent several weeks in ICU. Though it was an incredibly difficult time for us, it caused Landon to be in a perfect ICU routine. He ate every 4 hours and slept incredibly well. This routine stuck like glue for several months without us pushing it. His evening routine suddenly changed in January 2014 when Landon was six month old. He woke frequently and seemed starving. We did not know whether it was merely a growth spurt and/or whether it could have been due to us holidaying abroad for three weeks during December 2013. We remained positive and believed that his routine would correct itself since he had a great daytime routine. For the following five months, until June 2014, Landon woke approximately three to four times a night. He never fully woke up and would fall asleep as soon as we gave him either his dummy or bottle. We tried to find peace in the fact that he was only awake for a few minutes at a time and not hours on end. Then it suddenly went from slightly difficult to unbearable within a single week. By the end of June 2014 Landon woke every two hours. We had a choice. Refuse his dummy or bottle and sit with a screaming boy or give it to him and he would fall asleep instantly. So, despite suspecting that we were fuelling his bad habit, we gave in to him. We suspected that he was using us as pacifiers and knew we had to make changes, but we did not know how or where to start. What if he was truly hungry?! We were confused at Landon's night time bad habits as he was in a perfect daytime routine all along, despite his evening antics.
Desperation caused us to research sleep training and we found Baby Love. We were nervous to put Landon to bed awake. He was used to falling asleep in our arms. Our hearts broke when we started sleep training, but we believed that Landon was also in desperate need of a good night's rest and would be so happy to "sleep like a baby". On the first night Landon only woke up once for a few minutes at 5am. I actually had to go wake him up at 7am. On day two Landon only cried for twenty minutes at nap and sleep time and slept through. Since day three to date Landon has fallen asleep within seven to ten minutes. Sometimes he moans slightly and other times he doesn't even make a sound. Landon is now eleven months old, has been on the Baby Love program for almost two weeks and has been sleeping through every night from 19h to 7h15!
We thought that it was normal to a certain extent for babies to wake frequently. We tried to be strong and believed that he would sleep through in his own time.
Though we wish we found Baby Love five months ago, we believe that we obtained a valuable parenting skill which benefits not only us, but also our precious baby boy! We now understand that there is a right and a wrong way to apply sleep training. We always thought the crying would be incredibly traumatic and endure for hours. This is not the case if applied in a controlled Baby Love manner. Baby Love courses should be taught at antenatal classes! :
We'd like to close off by thanking Linda Metcalfe and congratulating Landon. You're a trooper my boy! Mommy and Daddy are incredibly proud of how you instantly accepted and adapted to the drastic changes. We should have done this for you months ago! Sweet dreams angel!
Caelene, Warren & Landon Shankland
