We reached out to Sleepybird because our 5-months old daughter was not able to fall asleep by herself, was waking up a few times at night, and was not able to sleep longer than 30-40 minutes during the day.
Bringing her to bed already had a negative connotation and was linked with fears and worries, mainly because it involved some crying and tears. Evenings with my husbands were also not possible anymore. On top, I was planning to go back to work soon, so we needed a solution.
Since we wanted to have a professional, individualized and safe approach to our daughter’s sleep, we consciously decided to get professional help and not just read a book.
To be honest, we had some concerns at the beginning – especially my husband – but luckily we decided to go for it. It was unbelievable: from night 3 our daughter was sleeping through the night (7.30pm until 7am) and even more important since day 11 she is having reliable, long naps during the day. And the best thing is: she loves going to bed and is happily falling asleep completely by herself. All of us are much more balanced and our daughter is super happy and satisfied during her waking times. Many people, including ourselves, were under the assumption that keeping your child awake during the day or putting them to bed late will make them sleep better at night. Such a wrong belief, it’s exactly the opposite.
We can’t thank Vera enough for her help and encouragement. We are tremendously happy to have asked her for help and to make such a positive change to our life.
