Our son has always been a good sleeper. He slept alone at night; however at nap time he used the bottle as a sleep prop. This worked for us and him very well. 2 months ago he started waking up very early in the morning (between 4 and 4.30 am). We tried shortening his nap but it did not work. He started becoming naggy and grumpy during the day because he wasn't getting enough sleep. So we started sleeping next to him when he woke up early to get him to sleep more. This backfired as he started waking up in the middle of the night because he wanted us to sleep next to him. After a month of going through this, we knew it was time to seek the help of a sleep consultant.
Saja is a great sleep consultant. She creates a program that fits the family and their values. The whole process was so smooth with her. She was always available when we had questions and whenever we needed her help.
What was amazing is that we saw a major change since day 3 with very minimal crying. He was able to sleep alone at naptime which he was never able to do before. Our son also became sick during the sleep training. Saja altered the program to meet his needs. At the end of the program, our son was able to sleep alone, anywhere, and in an open bed (not a crib).
Our son is usually a happy child however once he was able to sleep alone and to sleep more, he became even happier. He would tell us "I am happy" out of nowhere several times per day.
Saja changed our lives. She gave us flexibility and resilience in terms sleep. I now know my child will sleep anywhere, alone and he will tell us when he is tired and needs to sleep. Thank you, Saja, so much. We are grateful for your help.
