I cringe every time my baby cries. The sound of my little girl crying and the sight of her teary eyes give me heartache.
So why am I writing an article promoting sleep school?
#Lesson 1 – Give it a go (no matter how much you don’t feel like doing it)
‘if you choose to be here, then you need to give [sleep training] a go.’
#Lesson 2 – Keep calm and keep doing what you are doing.
‘It’s not the end of the world, Sok! Relax. You are doing your best for your baby and you so keep calm and continue what you are doing.’
#Lesson 3 – the outcome of an unusual action can be surprising and unexpected.
My body feels so light and free as I watch my baby moves around the cot without throwing her body onto the mattress.
#Lesson 4 – Building trust by honing your listening skills
‘By listening, you can respond to her better which helps build trust.’
#Lesson 5 – Action really speaks louder than words
Amanda’s comment made me re-evaluate what I am communicating non-verbally to my baby.
In overall, I found the experience to be worthy and educating. I like how the nurse is not being pushy (though assertive!!) nor strict as I thought they would be. In fact, The nurse was empathic and understanding so I feel very supported!
I really am not sure whether sleep training is for me and baby, but I’m glad I went along as I learned so much!
I’d love to hear from you…
