Let’s face it, we’ve all been there. No matter how “good” anyone’s baby is, we all have those moments as mums where we struggle and are desperate to get them to sleep.
Personally with Little T, I followed a particular “method” and attempted to get him to self settle, but early on (ok and maybe even still on the odd occasion 2.5 years on) there are times when you will do just about ANYTHING and pay just about ANYTHING to get your baby to sleep. For me, the penny dropped after a session with a maternity health nurse and my mother’s group a few months in when we were shown a video on how to help “pat” your baby to sleep. Without over simplifying it, there were other lessons involved but by and large what I learned by being able to watch that video helped more than all the books and online forums I had spent hours pouring through.
At one stage I even spent nearly $300 on an annual subscription to a site in an attempt to find the answers to my particular troubles with getting Little T into a sleep routine.
I don’t think there is a one size fits all, but I do like some approach’s over others. One in particular is a site called Slumber Bub who recently reached out to me to take a look at their online baby sleep school.
Slumber Bub allows mums to download safe baby settling techniques that are based on the baby's age, including video programs and daily planners prepared by baby sleep experts. Personally the videos are what I find most helpful….
I like that the price is very reasonable at only $29 for 18-months. And whilst every baby is different and there will always be exceptions who need specific help, this is a great way to learn the basics.
I’d love to hear what you think.
