Lara Blignaut (15 months)
BABY LOVE TESTIMONY
My daughter, Lara, was a dream baby from day one. From birth she only woke one a night, being 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning. She rarely cried and slept through from 6 weeks. This lasted until she was about 5 and a half months old. She started teething and was waking up several times a night, crying. The only way I could console her, was to breastfeed her. She would soon fell asleep and I would put her back in the cot. Sometimes I fell asleep and she just carried on sleeping in our bed.
The only way I could put her to sleep for day naps, was to breastfeed her as well. So, it happens that the only way I could put her to sleep when she got grumpy or teary, was to breastfeed her to sleep.
This carried on until she was 9 months old. She got sick and I was so worried about her, that I let her sleep in our bed for the full night. Thereafter I had problems getting her to sleep in her cot at all! I could feed her to sleep, put her back in her cot, but with her first wake, she would not go back into the cot, no matter what I tried. I was also so tired, that I just put her on the breast in our bed and we would both get back to sleep. But it didn't end there. She started to wake the whole night through and I'd just keep on feeding her. She actually used me as a dummy - a soothing method.
When she turned 14 months I was really desperate, as I also just found out I was pregnant with our second child and knew there is no way I can carry on like that and get up all night for 2 babies. I would then not sleep at all!
A friend has been nagging me for months about Baby Love, but I was quite doubtful about it. I finally had a look at the Baby Love website and for the first time read more about it. When I read the "Is this you?" part on the website, I could almost tick all of the boxes! And when I read the testimonies on the website, I just broke down in tears! I had a small spark of hope and I contacted Linda Metcalfe, a Baby Love consultant near me. After the consultation I was still a bit doubtful… How can my 15th month old sleep 3 hours during the day and then still go to bed at 19:30 by night? At the moment she was only sleeping about half an hour (if I'm lucky!) during the day and I could only get her to sleep by about 21h, 22h at night.
I was very nervous to start with the Baby Love program, but pushed through with a lot of emotional support from Linda. Lara cried for about 5 - 10 minutes with her day naps, but from day one she slept 1 and a half hours in the morning and 1 and a half hours in the afternoon. I put her to bed with her teddy bear at 19:30 and she was quiet. However, she did sit upright in her cot for quite some time before she fell asleep, but she did not cry. This happened for 2 nights. After that I just put her down to sleep each night at 19:30 and she would sleep right through until 6:30 in the morning. I never had a problem after that. After 2 weeks she also stopped crying with her afternoon naps and life was just bliss again! I was flabbergasted that my child could now sleep 14 hours in 24 hour cycle instead of the previous 10. I was amazed! I am still amazed at the success of the Baby Love program and I am so thankful that I got help. I just wish I started earlier!!
