Trying to get baby to sleep can be a traumatic experience for both mama, papa and baby! Welcome the the Baby Sleep Trainer success stories, where we share stories from the baby sleep frontline. This week we caught up with Erika James, who sleep trained her little bundle, Aricelli, at 9 months old. Read their story here!
Success Story: Erika James
I wanted her to be able to sleep by herself with no help.
If my husband would understand the process and be okay with it.
Pretty good but then we unswaddled and 20 minute naps started.
Not super bad. I kept thinking about the big picture. For Aricelli to be able fall asleep and go back to sleep with no help.
Nope! She’s still as happy as can be!
Don’t you sleep better by yourself in your bed? Your baby is the same way! Maybe you are being selfish because YOU want to sleep with your baby more than your baby wants to sleep with you!
In 2-3 days I started seeing changes. I could hear her wake up and put herself back.
If the family is ready then yes! There is a sense of peace knowing baby is asleep and can sleep for a while with no help.
