Hi there Ladies,
At 4 weeks old we were a mess. My husband rang ECAPPS. in our area(Fairfield) and they suggested to attend a 2 hour sleep clinic run by the community nurse.
This was a "WOW' moment.
This was child no. 3 and no body had told me about routine....
They follow the Karitane method of sleep.
0-3months down 2 hours up 1 hour.. they wake up hungrey and in the up hour feed change and put back to bed awake. they showed up simptoms of tiredness and stressed that baby must be awake when put back to bed....
This took about 3 days to work...as they ge older the up time widens..
now we are 13months and we wake at 6.30 am back to bed at 8.30 - 9am sleep for 2 hours and up for 2 then down for 2 then up for around3 hours then sleep all night......
It is heaven...No tantrums like my first 2
