Logan Roberts (4 months)
Before Baby Love…
When we reached the 4 ½ month mark with our son, we were beyond desperate and "depressed". Our son wasn't a big fan of sleep - first he had colic and then reflux. Everybody told us that "don't worry, he will sleep better : "once the colic has gone at 3 months" /"once he started on solids" / "when he goes onto formula milk..."… which wasn't the case, and quickly all our hope went out of the door. He is our first, so everything was new to us.
Since Logan was born, he was never a good sleeper. He would wake-up at least 6-9 times per night… which of course meant, we never really had a good night's rest. He would also not sleep during the day. It was tough. We looked like we were characters out of a scary Zombie movie.
I went back to work and it took a whole knock on our marriage, social life… it really never got any better. It was hard to remain positive at that stage and nobody truly could understand what we were going through. Some were saying that we were just being oversensitive and "it couldn't be that bad"!
We tried everything: rocking, sushing, bottle, dummy, pram, singing, driving in the car… he also never really liked his dummy so we ran out of options. He just did not want to go to sleep - it's like he thinks that "Klaasvakie" is evil. He was so tired… he just did not want to "give in". On average, it took us about an hour to get him to sleep and then only for him to wake-up after 20-30mins for the process to start all over again. He wasn't a happy child. And, he was getting such a big boy that it became impossible to rock him to sleep in the arms for so long.
And then I made contact with Marlene from Baby Love…
For the first time ever, I had a manual!
We met with Marlene and she gave us hope - hope for the future, hope to actually get sleep longer than 30mins at a time… I was willing to try anything but in the back of my mind I knew it was going to be emotionally draining but it was our last hope.
We met with Marlene on the Wednesday and decided to start implementing the 3 week programme starting that Friday night when I could spend all of my time with him. Dad was away on business for 2 weeks! I would not lie that in the days leading up to that Friday night, I was reading success story after success story on the Baby Love website to remain focused: that we are able to achieve success with our son. The great thing about Baby Love: it is a tailored programme for your child. I was always Pro-Independent-Sleep, but there are so many controversies out there with so many different views, opinions and options, I did not know which way to go. Marlene was great (and still is)… she was always just a message or a call away. Should I be unsure of something, she had a suggestion or an answer, and that always made me feel at ease.
By Day 6 we could see a huge improvement! He slept his first night through - without any interruptions, wakings etc. I was the one awake to see if he was actually still breathing!
At last: He was a happy child and he would finish his bottles. We were in love with him all over again. We had new perspective.
There is hope. If you are desperate, you are willing to try anything.
Dankie Marlene - jy was en is steeds ons regte Engel!
