I am so grateful that we could do this with support and reminding of the need for clear boundaries…
“I have a 27-month-old who had never slept through the night – and I had had enormous difficulty separating myself from her when she wanted me overnight as felt I had to always fix the crying and tantrums.
We were both suffering sleep deprivation and not coping very well with this.
Late, protracted bedtimes, night terrors and early morning scream fests.
I asked Amy for help and needed the support she offered during the initial hardest part – teaching bub to settle on her own, supporting her in this but setting gentle limits along the way. It was hard but the best thing we’ve done.
As a result, I now have a happy/ slightly more compliant- two-year-old who is thriving again and not spending her days distressed and full of stress hormones and angst. I am so grateful that we could do this with support and reminding of the need for clear boundaries – and how much the littlies need it. Here’s to a much better 2021!”.
