“Jasmine slept for a 7.5 hour block last night and it might have been longer but I couldn’t wait as I was engorged. Afterwards, she slept for another 2.5 hours. This is far and beyond a record for us.
Since Jackie spent the night with is, we’ve settled Jasmine in her cot for every sleep day and night. No carrying to sleep. No breastfeeding to sleep. She certainly protests but nothing like that first night with Jackie where we would have given in eventually had we not had Jackie’s supportive presence.
I’m so grateful to her for the way she helped us and made me more confident and I am sure Jasmine is getting better quality sleep too as she just had a 1.5 hour nap after a few days of 30-40 min cat naps.
I just wanted to say thank you.
Jackie, you are amazing, capable, friendly and confident, and accommodating. If you hadn’t showed us it COULD be done, we’d still be crossing our fingers that Jasmine could be sneaked into her cot and not waking up and then have our hearts sink as the monitor crackled back on with a crying baby.
And thank you, Beth for fitting us in as quickly as possible and being so understanding over the phone.”
