How a Desperate Mom Saved Extra 5 Hours a Day With This Personalized Sleep Course for Babies

My name is Amy. I am 33 years old, and I’ve been sleeping barely 3 hours a night for a long time now.

It wasn’t until 3 months ago that I got my 7-month-old baby to sleep through the night and finally regained my own sleep. 

But before that, I had literally tried everything:

  • Jumping from one pediatrician to another for advice, just to hear the same things that didn’t work all over again
  • I tried adjusting my baby’s sleep environment to improve the quality of sleep, but she just kept waking up every 15 minutes1
  • I’ve tried keeping a feeding and bedtime schedule, then gave up within a couple of months without seeing any results 

Yet, I thought my baby would never stop crying or sleep soundly, ever. I felt depressed and was losing it.2 

Or, I’d see some progress with fewer wake-ups for a day or two. But then, fighting bedtime, fussing, and crying at uncommon times came back.  

I didn’t know what else to do.

And if anyone feels the same way I did, then keep reading my story.

I will share how this personalized sleep course finally helped my baby have consistent naps and sleep through the night and how I regained my sleep and had more “me time.” When sticking with different pediatricians’ advice and other tools alone didn’t help.

I had a gut feeling that my baby’s sleep routine had nothing to do with constant wakings during the naps and at night.

I have always considered my baby to have a good sleep foundation. Yet, especially a month ago, I noticed how my friend’s baby could easily fall asleep in 10 minutes without making a sound during their nap.

While I had to ensure the right sleep environment, the right swaddle, and never forget the pacifier to get my baby to sleep for 15 minutes without waking, which I considered a win. 

I remember feeling like a failure as a mom. How can I not know how to take care of my own baby? 

But I didn’t expect what would happen later.

As the weeks passed, getting my baby to nap, let alone have an uninterrupted sleep, became even harder. Sudden bedtime tantrums and not being able to sleep independently. I was genuinely struggling, and I saw that my baby was struggling to have peaceful sleep, too. 

In desperation, I sought guidance from online mom forums as my baby got more tired and irritated. I thought I might find my answers if I read about other moms’ experiences.

But my daughter was becoming more and more emotionally stressed and vulnerable. So was I.    

By the time she was 6 months old, I couldn’t leave her in the crib to sleep. I always had to carry her and let her nap in my arms otherwise, she just wouldn’t sleep. I felt that lack of sleep was also taking its toll on me. 

But what struck me the most was the constant thought of how I was failing as a mother. I was not the mom my sweet baby girl deserved. And I wasn’t the wife my husband needed. Not able to show up for my family when they needed me to.  

I was embarrassed and disappointed to see that all the traditional sleep training methods that worked for my friends did not work for my girl. Having to fight tooth and nail just so my baby and I could get a few hours of uninterrupted sleep.

Could my baby’s sleep routine be the reason behind our struggles?

“There’s no chance, Amy. You’ve already tried all these solutions to improve our baby’s sleep you could think of. And what’s this? Come on,” I remember my husband saying in disbelief.

Yet, despite almost feeling like giving up, I was still looking for a satisfying answer.

I accidentally stumbled on this topic in one of those mom forums.

There was an ongoing discussion about a study showing that the “cry-it-out” method can help decrease fussing and crying and was not associated with adverse behavioral development.3

I immediately tried it on Ema without going further into the reviews or comments.

By this point, I was desperate for so long. I tried everything – from the most expensive pediatrician consultations to completely adjusting my baby’s sleep environment, but nothing worked. 

It took me around two weeks before I had a wake-up call.

The “cry-it-out” method wasn’t working. 

How was that possible?

Another solution that wasn’t a good fit for my baby girl. I thought I would never sleep or have time to myself ever again.

Only later did I realize that I should have done much more research to understand that “cry-it-out” is not suitable for every child. 

My best friend knew how much I was struggling with my baby’s sleep. She saw it from the dark circles under my eyes. 

One day, she sent me the link to this new sleep course for babies that women were discussing, and it seemed to work for some of them. 

I decided if nothing else worked for my baby girl, it was time I tried a sleep course. I desperately needed my sleep and my “me time” back. 

Yet, I was skeptical at first, just like my husband. 

I have previously tried parenting books and other programs to deal with baby sleep struggles. Nothing worked. 

But one after another, women shared their stories.

I needed to make myself believe that this is it. This sleep course might finally help our family. 

And to my surprise…

The first time I saw this new personalized sleep course called BBSleeps, it was just recently released.

I didn’t take it seriously. I thought it was one of those products with big promises that targeted tired mothers like me. Mothers who’ve tried everything with little to no success.

But I got hooked by their free quiz.

It didn’t cost me anything, and after the quiz, I was offered a free report on my baby’s sleep habits and how their course can help improve my little one’s sleep within 7 days! 

How could I resist?

The free report explained why my girl struggled with her sleep. Everything made sense.

Moreover, they offer a personalized course tailored to your baby’s age, sleeping habits, and goals. They have sleep courses for children of different ages – from newborns to babies and toddlers. You can also get a course bundle for babies of all ages. 

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the price for the sleep course was lower than the monthly cost of other programs with similar promises.

Oh, and you get so many valuable freebies, like a sleep tracker with your course!

I gave BBSleeps a try.

My first impression was really good. The courses are science-backed and offer proven methods carefully crafted by top experts. It was full of real-life techniques that I could use for my baby daily.   

Within a week, I noticed Ema going from waking up six times a night to only two times! This was a huge win. On top of that, I used the tips on napping from the course, and I couldn’t believe my own eyes. My girl was napping for an hour without a single sound.

These things were nice to see, and after half a year of sleepless nights, my baby was sleeping soundly for more than 20 minutes. I could catch up with the things I lost track of along the way. 

I finally felt good in my own body. I wasn’t sleep-deprived anymore, nor was my baby.

BBSleeps personalized sleep course helped me get the sleep I and my baby needed for so long. 

Now, it’s been only the first few weeks, and we still have a long way to go…

But finally, step by step, with the help of the BBSleeps sleep course, my baby has a restful sleep, and so do I. 

I was so used to not sleeping that I couldn’t imagine myself sleeping more than 3 hours. And now I do.

I know I probably couldn’t have achieved this without BBSleep’s guidance.

So, for anyone struggling with a sleepless baby, fussing and crying, constant wakings, and trying everything possible to make it better – chances are the methods you’ve tried before are not effective and offer a one-size-fits-all approach. 

I suggest you take a free quiz on the BBSleeps website.

This way, you won’t have to second-guess what to do to have a restful, sleeping baby.

And if you do start guessing, you will know exactly what to do next.
