Thank God our friend recommended Vera to us. We wish we had reached out to her much earlier instead of denying that our girl (22 Months) had real sleeping issues.
Ella has never been a great sleeper, always took ages for her to fall asleep by herself let alone sleeping several consecutive hours a night. So for months and months we were trying to convince ourselves that it is just a phase which was most likely to go away once she turned a certain age. Well – it didn’t.
After a while we were close to a mental break down (both working full time), completely sleep deprived by hardly getting 5-6 hours of sleep a night. Not only did she wake up several times during the night, asking for her dummy, but also wanting to sleep in our bed every single day. She is a very restless sleeper to say the least, so with her sleeping next to us also meant zero sleep for us. We even tried to put a mattress next to her baby cot figuring at least one of us would get some sleep. But hands down, that is just not how parents should solve their kids sleeping problems, right? By sleeping in separate beds? That didn’t feel right after all.
At one point there was no other way than getting professional help. And what can we say: Working with Vera has been the best decision at all. She’s caring, patient and mindful. Also, we never met in person, but spoke on the phone: Super easy going and she’s got a certain drive, which made it real effortless to click with. She always made us feel that we are on the right track. Her 3-weeks programme was tough at times, for sure, but worth every step of the way.
Ella stopped fighting to fall asleep and is now able to doze off herself. She sleeps soundly through the night (no more dummy needed), so we couldn’t be prouder of our little one. When she wakes up, she seems much more relaxed.
We recommend Vera to anyone struggling with their kids sleeping habits. Don’t hesitate – just trust her expertise. Thank you Vera – we are forever grateful.
