Lia Prosalendis (5 months)
This programme not only helped my baby to sleep through from the first day that I implemented it, but she gained weight and thrived once she started eating and sleeping properly!
My name is Deanna Prosalendis and I am a tax practitioner by profession. I joined the Baby Love team because I feel passionate about the programme and would like to share the knowledge and insight that I have gained to help others. Having children, especially a first child, can be daunting. Not because of the lack of guidance and programmes out there. In some ways, there is an information overload and new parents are not sure which particular piece of advice to implement and follow.
I read all the books: Gina Ford, Sleepsense, the Ferber method, you name it! What drew me to the Baby Love concept was the holistic approach that it subscribes to and the notion that what happens during the day (in terms of what your baby eats and how they sleep) drives the night time behaviour. This, was a piece of the puzzle which was certainly missing for us.
Lia, my daughter, is the most beautiful, lovable child (maybe a slightly biased opinion). We certainly did not fit the profile of those parents who are tearing their hair out and have dark rings under their eyes. Lia slept relatively well at night, although she was still waking at night for one or two feeds when we implemented Baby Love. Having said that, though, she just was not thriving. She was not sleeping well in the day at all and needed walking and rocking to sleep and, even when she fell asleep, she would wake after 20 minutes or half an hour (for those 'in the know' she was not linking her sleep cycles). Her weight gain was a constant concern for me; we weighed in at the clinic every week and some weeks she would gain only 60 grams, one week she had put no weight on at all.
I had the nagging feeling that, although she was such a happy little child and always smiling, something concerning her sleeping and eating was not 100% as it should be. She would stay awake for hours and become completely overstimulated. We would joke that she had her "crazy eyes" which would be when she had not slept for hours and was in "energiser bunny mode". She would have us all entertained because she would scream and play like mad but, as a mother, I knew she was running on adrenalin and was not adequately rested.
After a particularly difficult holiday and in view of my imminent return to my somewhat stressful job (which would require me to be on the ball during the day), I attended a Baby Love consultation and we all watched in astonishment as Lia transformed into an even more contended little baby. Overnight she slept in her own room, right through the night. She also started eating better and moved into a new percentile as far as her height and weight were concerned. She was less jumpy and did not startle as easily.
The truth is that I am sure there are other programmes and routines that achieve the same outcome! Baby Love was the programme that suited our needs best and I genuinely believe in the philosophy - which is to teach your child the life skill to sleep unaided. I believe that you are giving your child the gift of being an independent little spirit who can self-soothe when they have woken during the night. They are no longer reliant on you to rock, feed or pat them to sleep! That is not to say you do not love and cuddle your children, in fact you do it more often after they are sleep trained because you are not exhausted and running on adrenalin yourself!
That is my story!
