I wanted to write to you to say a massive thank you to Mothercraft for Babies and especially your nurse Sonia.
Sonia came to visit me and my little one when Sierra was 8 weeks old in mid January and I was having a lot of trouble getting her to sleep and dealing with her wind. Sonia was absolutely wonderful. She was a wealth of information and knowledge, and was particularly patient and kind.
Together we worked on a sleep and settling routine and she gave me a series of massages to do daily to help her colic.
Sierra is now 4.5 months old and is an incredible sleeper. Both my husband and I stuck steadfast to the settling plan and after just a couple of weeks, Sierra began to just take her dummy and put herself to sleep immediately for both day and night sleeps. She wakes and resettles herself whenever she needs to and she sleeps 12 hours overnight which she started doing at 9 weeks.
Ultimately, I needed to stop breastfeeding Sierra as my breastmilk was the cause of her severe and painful wind but I have continued the massage twice daily and together with the formula she no longer suffers any pain from her wind. The massage routine I was taught was key in alleviating a large portion of her wind pain.
I meant to write this weeks ago, but as you know life seems to run away with you when you have a baby.
Please do send my thanks to Sonia. Your service is such an incredible help to those of us who need a little helping hand.
