When Feeding Is The Only Thing That Works!

Many people get stuck finding that feeding is the only thing that works to get their baby to go to sleep or back to sleep. Do you feel like you’ve tried everything but nothing else will work?

It is a very common scenario and how can you move past it if you can’t seem to get your little one to settle in any other way?

This episode of The Sleep Nanny Show will answer this for you in 5 simple steps:

So long as a baby is fed to sleep, this will remain a requirement or a similar alternative may also work. If you are required to do something to your baby to get her to sleep, you will be required every time at every waking in order to resettle too.

If you stop feeding to sleep (or doing the thing you are doing to put your baby to sleep), she will cry. She will do this to tell you that she doesn’t know what to do. So, instead of leaving her there to cry in hope that she might figure out what to do, you can reassure her and gently guide her to show her what to do – After all, settling oneself to sleep is a learned skill.

My approach ensures a baby’s needs are met and they are always responded to. It is HOW they are responded to and making this response conducive to the baby developing more and more ability and skill to settle WITH your support but WITHOUT you doing it for her.

What a difference ONE COACHING CALL makes!!
Mum, Michelle says.."I felt so desperate when we spoke and when you’re in that moment, it’s so hard to see a light at the end of a tunnel. Just goes to show a few small changes and consistency goes a long way!"

Lois (age 2) was waking super early every morning and struggling to nap at nursery. The family were exhausted.

We put a plan in place and this is what Michelle said..."Lois woke up at 06:40 today! I’ve gradually increased the wake-up time on her clock to 06:30, but today she woke up a good 10mins after it! I can’t believe the difference since our call 2wks ago".

You and your family could be sleeping better too. Drop us a message today to find out how we can help you solve your sleep challenges.

Is your little one resisting a second nap during the day?

If they are somewhere between 13 and 17 months then it is likely that they may be ready to transition from 2 naps to just the one.

This can be complicated and it can be on and off for a number of weeks so you need to be prepared.

Check out this weeks YouTube video where I answer the following questions;
- When is your little one ready to transition from 2 nap to 1?
- What are the signs?
- How do you navigate this when they don’t sleep at the ideal times?
- And how long will this transition take?

Drop me a thumbs up in the comments below if you think your little one is ready to drop down to one nap.
