I am the mother of three handsome little boys, 5, 3 and 1 years old. I have BSc in International Business and Management and have been working in real estate for the last 10 years. As a working mother of three, sleep has always been important for me. Managing three little kids, a household and work is a busy task and it would not be possible to do if I had three kids not resting well and sleeping through the night.
With my first and second children, I sleep trained intuitively it seems. I never realized the logic behind my doing, nor did I have the explanation why things worked out but they were sleeping through the night and during the day from early as 4 months on.
When I had my third boy, things, however, went the other direction. I was sleep deprived for months while trying to be there for my other two boys, my husband and some work commitments and I could not take it. I thought I was going to lose my mind not sleeping and managing all. I then decided I had to do something about our boy and his sleeping, and began reading many books and internet publications only to get really confused about what to actually do and which method was what. Finally, I came across the Sleep sense program and by following it, I trained my son to sleep through the night by 15 weeks old. I had contacted a Certified Sleep sense consultant who helped me along the way when I had doubts and troubles with naps. With her support and my consistency of the plan, we managed the sleep issues of my boy and he has been sleeping through the night ever since.
I am happy to say I now have a sleep champion at home, who is a happy child because he sleeps well. He is not alone, as he has two brothers who are also great sleeping champs.
I was so thrilled by the Sleep Sense system and the idea that children can be taught to sleep and decided to go through the training to become a Certified Sleep consultant myself.
I feel very strongly about the sleep that all kids deserve and along with them, the sleep that all parents long for.
I truly believe that teaching your children to sleep independently can help all mothers and families go through the difficulties of parenthood that no one prepares us for.
