I contacted beth at Mothercraft for Babies when our baby was 2 months old and took over an hour to get to sleep by rocking and bouncing him and he would only sleep for 30mins at a time during the day. I spoke to Beth over the phone who was compassionate and provided valuable advice and she recommended a lovely sleep consultant called Jackie.
Jackie was so lovely and patient and by the end of the day we had a new action plan in place which was so helpful and a way to put my baby to sleep in his cot finally! I asked for their help again when our baby was around 5 months as I think he went through the 4 month regression and all of a sudden we couldn’t get him to settle in the cot at all. I could breastfeed him to sleep but sometimes that took hours and didn’t always work and I resorted to rocking him to sleep in our pram as nothing else worked.
Jackie came over again and we managed to get him to sleep in the cot again and within 2 days he was self settling for all naps and bedtime with minimal fuss and sleeping for long day naps and sleeping through with one wake over night. Thanks so much mothercraft, Beth and Jackie !!
