Amazing! We met with Tina again to look at helping our 6 month old sleep better at night (he was still sleeping in a next-to-me crib and getting up 5 times a night, 3 of which were to breast feed and needed rocking to sleep before you could put him back down...and then he would wake after 20 minutes.....and so on...he would start the first part of the night asleep on his dad's lap, so not good) He was not sleeping in the day unless on our laps (he had taken to the pram initially but was now too big for it so we were rocking him and sitting with him again...clock watching, praying he slept and did;t wake up or we'd have to rock him again....) and only sleeping for 30 minutes at a time. Despair, aching limbs, frustration and sleep deprivation led us back to Tina to look at a controlled crying and a sleep plan. We had never wanted to do controlled crying and were both really nervous about letting our little boy cry and leaving him...but....it was amazing! Tina put a plan together for the day and night...a routine to help him settle into and on day one...he slept! In his own cot like we had only ever dreamt of! After 3 days and not much crying at all our little boy now sleeps in his cot in his own room from 7pm to 7am with maybe one wake up (which needs us to settle him) and two others (which amazingly he settles himself) and he is a different child!! He is also sleeping in his cot in the day and his afternoon naps are now getting longer as he learns to settle himself. Day 3 he slept for 2 hours in the afternoon! We are absolutely astounded at how much easier it was than we thought (we were not looking forward to it at all) but it seems that not only were we ready for a change, so was our boy. We still keep thinking its going to go back to how it was but so far it hasn't and Tina assures us that this is it! We are so thankful we did this and although we wouldn't have done it sooner than 6 months, we would recommend anyone looking to sort out their little one's sleep issues, to call Tina and get her on the case. Practical, honest and do-able advice which builds your confidence and works!! Our lives have been transformed...and I've even got time to write this review WHILST MY BABY SLEEPS IN HIS COT UPSTAIRS!
