Yeah. I've been doing that late-night googling in desperation trying to find the miracle thing that will make my baby girl sleep. This is all so traumatic to me to be doing this again after dealing with the same stuff with DS 3 years ago. But here I am again. Beyond desperate.

 

Anyway- I'm trying to keep an open mind and try things that I didn't consider before- short of CIO. For now. So this "baby sleep site" keeps popping up and I'm wondering if the sleep "specialist" or "expert" or whatever can actually tell me something that I haven't read a million times before and tried with no success. So has anyone out there tried this service or another like it? What's the deal? Sham? Same old "put your baby down awake" stuff?

 

In my desperation I would actually pay A LOT of money for someone, anyone, to come here and wave a magic wand or do whatever necessary so that my baby and I can sleep for more than 30 minutes to an hour at a time. Are you out there magic fairy? I have a big fat wad of cash here for you!  Seriously... No really... I WILL PAY YOU.

First time I've heard of it. Looking forward to seeing if anyone found it helpful. 

 

I hope you figure out something that makes both you and baby happy.  :love Anyone have any helpful suggestions?

I have a free 15-minute consultation scheduled for Monday with Compassionate Sleep Solutions (can't remember if we're allowed to link in this forum, but if you google it, you'll find the site).

I know what you mean about being rather desparate for help! I saw the Baby Sleep Site, but what drew me to Compassionate Sleep Solutions (aside from it being recommended by my pre/post-natal yoga teacher) was that it's anti-CIO. IIRC, Baby Sleep Site has CIO in their toolbox, but they will do a sleep plan for you that doesn't include that if you prefer not to use it.
