Title: Thank you, Tracy!

Just had to say it. This board is mostly for when things don't work (of course, everything else would be silly), so I posting a wee success story here where it just worked beautifully  ;D

The family I work with have two boys, 3 and 3 weeks. When DS1 was 11 months, I started working with them and he was a terrible sleeper. The parents are very cooperative, and stuck to everything I said, DS1 has been a dream sleeper since. I showed them all the PU/PD and later a WiWo light, stuck a routine on their kitchen board every month and it worked. Now DS2 is three weeks old and they are following all the advice again. This family isn't prone at all to AP, more to CIO, so I am very glad, they are slistening. DS is a happy, content baby, gaining weight well and sleeping though for up to 8 hours a night with good 2 hour naps in the day.

Thank you, Tracy, your methods are very 'teachable' IRL.

 ;D

It was all Tracy, seriously! I pretty much quoted her and did stuff exactly like she did in the book and TV programme.

She was so AWESOME, almost like magic  ;D

I seriously think that all social workers who work with families with babies should know about Tracy's work. It will protect babies from CIO and perhaps even neglect. Not implying that everyone who does CIO is neglecting their child. But if you tell a parent that certain methods will keep a baby healthy and more content and sleeping longer, they are likely to use them  :-*
