Claire and William (10 Months Old)
Claire and her son William live in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. William had not been
a good sleeper and his parents had never had a full nights sleep since the day he
was born. By the time Claire purchased
The Baby Sleep System
he was getting gradually worse. William was sleeping in his parents' bed for most of
the time especially after 10pm and waking every hour. Claire was determined to break
the cycle and was keen to get started with the programme.
Wendy helped Claire to devise a routine that incorporated the right number of
naps in the correct places. They agreed that William must be banished from his
parents' bed. Once these rules had been established we worked on a strategy to
deal with the night time waking. Claire was advised to post on the
Baby Sleep Answers forum everyday to get up to date advice
and much needed support.
There were a few blips along the way, but within two weeks William was sleeping
in his own bed for the whole night.
As Claire put it in her most recent post on the forum:
"Hi again Wendy, well you were right by Friday night he
was sleeping straight through without even waking once so this is brilliant
and he has kept it up so far, he even goes to sleep now without any crying
and is usually asleep within 5 minutes so that is great.
We owe you so much Wendy, you can't understand how much this
has improved our lives it is so nice to be able to spend a few hours with my
husband without running up and down stairs to settle William back to sleep.
Plus we finally have a bed to ourselves and most importantly to get a full
night's sleep. I know there will probably be some hiccups along the way but it
is looking really good. We can't thank you enough Wendy, I'm just so glad I found
you and your book."
