Amelia was 15 months and still not sleeping well. At the time, I was a still nursing mother who was at her wits end with it, trying to wean, and still having to get up 1-2 times a night to comfort her. I was beyond exhausted, desperate, and in need of change. I needed my baby to sleep through the night. AND I needed to do it gently and naturally, because it breaks my heart to hear her cry and I knew I couldn’t let her cry it out all night without comforting her.
I looked online for a sleep specialist and came across a “exhausted mom’s survival kit” and signed up immediately. It was packed full of great information such as:
Step-by-Step Guide on Gently Transforming Bedtime Battles into Peaceful Evenings
How To Get Your Baby Sleeping All Night & Later Every Morning (Without Cry It Out!)
Tips to Avoid the Most Common Baby Sleep Mistakes
Short, entertaining videos. No long e-books!
Get your family sleeping well at night, so you can enjoy all the little things ❤️
I really appreciated the pace of the program and how easy the videos were to listen to and follow. Jilly has a wonderful FAQ section where each and every possible question is answered and has a great facebook group full of support.
Amelia is now sleeping through the night, 11-12 hours a night, and it was all achieved through a few, easy changes.
When Amelia grew out of her Rock N’ Play, she had a hard time sleeping which made for a crabby baby and a very tired mom! When we put her in her crib, it felt too big to her. She was used to being swaddled & snug in her Rock an’ Play. Her crib was too big and vast for her..& she didn’t like it. It wasn’t an easy transition by any means.
Out of desperation for a good night of sleep, she began spending some of the night in our bed. She would start out in her own crib but when she woke up hungry, I would bring her to our bed.I do love co-sleeping and all of the snuggles, but I was concerned about her safety and wanted her to have her own safe space….and then I was introduced to DockATot!
Our friends over at DockATot sent us their DockATot Grand for Amelia and it has helped her sleep much more soundly! We have family about 6 hours away, so we often travel to go see them. The DockATot is portable and easy to transport for those nights away!
Once I saw the Carrara Marble pattern, I fell in love! The Carrara Marble pattern can be found here. It is such a beautiful cover, and is completely machine washable which if you are a parent, you know is a must have feature!
The DockATot Grand is a multi functional lounger. So far, Amelia has enjoyed sleeping in her DockATot as well as playing in it. The bottom of the DockATot is soft and padded and provides your baby with a nice cushion while both sleeping and playing.
The DockATot is all natural, 100% cotton and has been tested for breathability. DockATot’s come in two sizes Deluxe (0-8 months) and Grand (9-36 months). The Deluxe is for babies who are 0-22 pounds and the Grand is for babies who are 22-40 pounds. I have several mommy friends who have mentioned that the Grand is perfect for toddler bed transitions!
