We contacted Lisa when Eve was just 5 months old. She had never slept more than 45 minutes at a time and would not settle without being fed to sleep. Most nap times I would spend over an hour trying to put her down in her cot only to resort to feeding her to sleep after enduring extended periods of crying. Then the added task of placing her carefully in her cot without waking her was beyond stressful. All this struggle only to get maybe a 20 minute break.
It felt like I was spending my entire day either feeding Eve or in her room listening to her cry. After her naps she would wake up screaming and we were all anxious and beyond tired.
With seemingly no light at the end of the tunnel we contacted Lisa.
From the moment Lisa stepped into our home I knew we had made the right decision. Eve instantly warmed to her and so too did my dog which was a big bonus.
Lisa taught us how to read our daughter’s tired signs and the difference between her annoyed versus distressed cries. She showed us the strategies of how to put an awake child into their cot happily and teach them to self settle. We are so thankful for her help.
Every challenge we came up against Lisa was there to support and reassure us. Her depth of knowledge about infant sleep settling and development is just amazing. Every question we had, Lisa was able to answer in a positive and supportive way.
It has been 3 months since Lisa first came to visit and 3 months since I last fed my daughter to sleep. Following the sleep routine Lisa individualised for our family we can now put Eve in her cot and walk away knowing that she can settle herself to sleep. For her day naps Eve now spends approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours in her cot, even if she is awake Eve happily lays in her cot, playing with her sleep toy and resting. Overnight Eve has just dropped one of her dream feeds by herself, she no longer needs me to settle her back to sleep. It’s just amazing.
The transformation has just been life changing. We now have a happy 7 month old little girl who knows the difference between playtime and rest time. I could never have imagined that things could be so different. Not just in Eve’s behaviour but in my mindset. Even when Eve challenges us we now have the skills and confidence to tackle her resistance and that is the difference. We are eternally grateful for all of Lisa’s help and advice. Just knowing we can email her at anytime is very comforting.
We would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to any mum or dad having sleep problems. The way she explains and communicates her vast knowledge is just invaluable, reassuring and worth every cent.
