I am a single mum working about 30 hours a week & have been co-sleeping with my son John since he grew out of the bassinet. I just needed my sleep however I could get it. When John turned 7 months old, it just was not working for me anymore – John had to go into his own bed. Plus it began to get dangerous to have him on my bed. I began using controlled crying, but it was too stressful for John who started scratching himself raw, so tried a more gradual approach. That didn’t work either. The longer I tried it, the longer it took to get him to sleep successfully. In the end, he would always end up in bed with me. It began affecting my work & I was getting frustrated with John so decided to look into getting help.
I found Carmel’s website & decided to submit an enquiry. Carmel rang back the very next day & explained her method & that, with us being in Queensland, she would be here for us by phone whenever we needed her. Carmel is extremely easy to talk to & very understanding & her method is very gentle & is varied to suit each child so as not to cause any unnecessary stress. She answered questions that all the reading in the world cannot answer & provided the structure I needed to get John to sleep happily in his own cot.
A little over 2 weeks out, the change in John’s sleeping patterns & his mood in general are astounding! I have a very happy boy ?
In short, Carmel is amazing!! I highly recommend Carmel’s services for any parent struggling with child sleep problems.
