My wife and I had spent fourteen months getting up three to five times a night – every night – for fourteen months. Needless to say our health was waning, as was our marriage.
Our son however was thriving – he was happy and healthy and growing at the top of the charts. Obviously we were doing some things right. Our son was nursing full meals at night time wake ups and we hoped he’d eventually sleep through the night. Nope.
A friend of mine recommended Meaghan Lussier and we met for a consultation. We were hopeful, but at the same time had some strong attachment parenting beliefs, and were not willing for our son to ‘cry it out’ to fall asleep. We didn’t have to.
Meaghan helped us create our own solution that consisted of breaking some old patterns and establishing some new ones with kindness and love. Within three nights our son slept through the night for the first time in his life and has not cried it out once. He is even happier than he was before and now nurses and eats his meals during the day. He typically sleeps eleven hours a night and has one two hour nap in the late morning.
My wife and I took a little longer to get our sleep patterns back but we are there now. We are doing a lot better and we thank Meaghan a lot. We tell everyone we meet about our success.
