    These are such beautiful stories! It is wonderful to hear the total relief in their words. I have a 10 month old who has been an awesome sleeper up until now. She has enjoyed sleeping through the night with only one relatively easy night waking for quite some time. A few weeks ago she started a little phase (8/9/10 month regression with some major separation anxiety mixed in) and now we are waking 3-4 times a night and I’ve come down to feeding her pretty much to sleep almost every time now. Ahh! I have been extremely impressed with the Baby Sleep Site and thinking of purchasing a sleep package but am unsure which one I should go with. Her situation seems normal and simple, but feeding her to sleep has caused some problems that could be more difficult to fix. I was just thinking of an express sleep plan, but I w ant to be sure whether it is right or not. Any suggestions?

    My daughter is almost 12 months and she sleeps from 8pm to 5:30 or 6 at the latest. And when she wakes, she wakes up crying, until I go in and nurse her but then she’s up for the day. Is she getting enough sleep (she takes 2 one hour naps)? And doesn’t it mean that the child is not well rested if they wake up crying?!

      @ Kelly – this schedule sounds decent to me, although the bedtime is perhaps a bit on the later side. You can see our recommended bedtimes by age here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/baby-sleep-needs/baby-toddler-bedtime-chart/ Sometimes, a too-late bedtime can lead to an earlier-than-desired morning wake-up time. It might be a good first step to move bedtime back slightly (maybe to 7:30 at first) and see what happens w/ the morning wake-up time. The two one-hour naps sound great, though 🙂 Those are very age-appropriate.

      As for the waking up crying, this article may shed some light for you: https://www.babysleepsite.com/sleep-quick-tips/baby-wakes-up-crying-why/ This may indeed be a not-quite-done-sleeping cry, or it may be a hungry cry… I’d try tweaking bedtime first, and then going from there.

      Hope this helps, Kelly! Best of luck to you and to your family.

    My 7 months old baby anson cries for over an hour every night before he can fall asleep. Once he is asleep, he is fine. It is just so hard for him to fall asleep without crying. I have tried different methods, different sleeping routines and schedules. Nothing seems to change anything. Which kind of service do you think can help us on this? It is heartbreaking to hear him crying so hard every night . Thanks

      @ Tammy – oh, this sounds rough!! 🙁 So sorry you’re going through this. I’d say that you likely need personalized help for this, as it’s not necessarily a super common issue. However, given that your baby sleeps pretty well once he’s fallen asleep, you likely don’t have a ton of problems to tackle, which means you can probably get by with less follow-up help. For those reasons, you may want to consider either our Basic package or our Deluxe package. You can read more about those here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/baby-toddler-sleep-consulting-services/#email

      Best of luck to you, Tammy! Hope these services prove useful 🙂

    Hi, my daughter stops sleep well at around 4.5 months, when I started weaning (she was a reflux baby!) since then she would wake 3-4 times a night. Most time could be easily settled and would go back to sleep but sometimes not so much and ends up in our bed! I then increased her milk in the mornings and evenings and for 3 nights in a row slept through until 4-5am!! But last night was awake at 1 and wouldn’t go back to sleep so ended up with us again! My daughter falls asleep on me and then I transfer into her bed, which I know is a stupid thing to have started as she can’t self soothe, plus she has a dummy. Please help!!

    I have 3 daughters. The last one just turned 4 months. I really need to sleep train her. Can you help me.
    Right now she co spleeps and wakes up a lot of times. The only way I can get decent rest is if I just nurse her lying down and we both fall asleep. I need her in her own bed.

    My now three year old grandaughter has been giving us a hard time going to bed. This started about a month or so ago. She procrastinates terribly. It’s I want a drink of water I want to tell papa a secret, which then turns into ten secrets! I’m able to then rock her a little then put her in her bed. I do rub her back for a few minutes then she’s go to sleep. It’s the before bad I’m concerned about. And yes I probably spoil her. She’s my grandaughter after all. I may also mention she sleeps from 8-9 until 9-10 or later in the mornings. Her mom and dad(my son) started putting her down for a nap with daddy. He works nights and tries to sleep a little during the day. And sometimes her mom will also put her with daddy after her bath for bed. Then about 11 when he gets up she is then moved into her own bed. I’m thinking that she’s confused. What can we do?!Thanks, grandma
