“I called Beth at Mothercraft for Babies on the recommendation of my GP. Georgie was almost 10 months old and I was still breastfeeding her twice most nights and breastfeeding to sleep at bed time. I was exhausted, emotional and had a very painful blister on my nipple. We needed to get things on track before starting back at work in 6 weeks.
With Beth’s advice and assistance we reduced day time breast feeds from 4 per day to 2, increased her intake of suitable solids, separated feeding from sleeping at bed time and reduced overnight feeds to 1 then 0. It wasn’t easy but much more straight forward than I expected.
5 nights after I first spoke with Beth Georgie slept through from 7.15pm to 6.30am, she did the same the following night! Georgie is now settling in her cot with only mattress tapping and voice reassurance. The improvement has been unbelievable.
Beth was wonderful with Georgie and worked with us to make sure we were comfortable with her recommendations. I expected there would be a lot of crying but it turned out that wasn’t required.
Beth has a wealth of knowledge and expertise on baby feeding, sleeping and behaviour.
Thank you so much Beth! I’m feeling much more confident with Georgie’s feeding and sleeping. I’m also comfortable about sending her off to daycare knowing that she will eat a large variety of foods and can settle in her cot for naps. I would recommend Beth and Mothercraft for babies with no reservations.”
