Facebook Live gives desperate mum a sleep through

Facebook Live

I've been doing Facebook Live every Tuesday from my front room studio in Sydney, Australia nearly every Tuesday 2:30 pm until 3:30 pm for the past year. I regularly answer 10-15 questions from sleep-deprived mums all over Australia and the world. Giving hope and a lifeline that it can get much better compared to where they currently are. Mums often update me via Facebook Live to tell me how I changed their life just the week before. This update came via email. And it is so special it needed a share.

Hi Karen

You don't know me.... but I'm a much happier mummy because of you!!

I have a 6-month-old baby girl Edie.  We've had a tough few months with eczema, gastro problems and irritability due to food allergy and consequently terrible sleep.

I've been on an elimination diet for the past six weeks > no dairy, no soy, no eggs, no peanuts.  It's been tough, but the improvements I can see in my gorgeous little girl have been worth it.

Last week was the first time that I felt confident her night wakes were strictly to resettle.  We had gone from 8-hour stretches of sleep without needing mummy to 2 hourly wakes every single night.

Last Friday I watched your latest Facebook live on repeat.  1:35:45 - Amber Adam & 8-months-old girl waking 6-8 times a night and won't settle unless mum breastfeeds her.  

I thought, what if my baby resettles in under 3-minutes and I don't even need to go into her room???  The previous night I'd been up six times putting Edie back to sleep.  That night I put her down awake and left the room.  She protested but was asleep within 3 minutes.  She often woke that night 2-hourly and then hourly...but I only needed to go in once and she's slept through every night since.  Last night she slept 6.30-7.30 ????  
For the first time in 15 months I felt like I could have TWO GLASSES OF WINE!!  

So that's it. THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart.

Facebook live Video Watched by Erin

This is the video, Erin watched to help her baby sleep through the night. Each week I timecode the Facebook Live videos so you don't need to watch the whole video, just the bit that looks at your particular situation. I'm building up a library of material to help you all. Did you know Nurture Parenting has over 70 YouTube video's you can access, over 520 blogs and now over 100 Facebook Live v on all things baby sleep and parenting 0-5 years? As well as books on baby sleep to prevent sleep problems when your baby is under 4 months old and an interactive baby massage eBook with embedded instructional video. I'm constantly working on new products and projects to help you enjoy parenting more and, most importantly, get your little cutie sleeping much better. After all, don't we say Happy Mum = Happy Baby?
