Success Story

Philip Hughes

After having successfully sleep trained our first child by implementing the Baby Love programme, we always knew we would most definitely use the programme with our second child as we saw the positive effect on Cameron's overall development. 


We met with Jacqui just before Philip (Cameron's baby-brother) turned 5 months old, but sadly he got Pneumonia that same week and was admitted to hospital - sleep training took a back seat. Three weeks later and after so many exhausting nights we were desperate. I think Philip learnt so many bad habits from his stay in hospital as there was no structured routine and when he finally fell asleep, he would be woken up by nurses to be nebulized. I would push a bottle in his mouth every 10 minutes out of desperation to stop his crying and to get him to sleep, it was a nightmare! Things got worse when he was discharged. He woke up frequently, refused to sleep by himself, we had to push him in his pram or rock him to sleep. As soon as he saw his cot he would start crying. He didn't sleep during the day and was up every 40 minutes at night. After assessing his health (never sleep train a sick baby!) we decided it was time to implement Baby Love. 


Almost two months later and we have a happy and content little guy that sleeps straight through from 18:30 to 06:30 (very happy parents?), and when he finally wakes up he is quite happy to lie in his cot cooing and playing. His day sleeps are perfect as he sleeps three times a day for 90 minutes at a time. 


Sleep training is really hard in the beginning. Philip's days took much longer to fall into place compared to his nights which fell into place after two nights of training! Remember: you are teaching your child the ultimate skill - to self soothe and the benefits far outweigh the negatives. 


Philip is thriving on the Baby Love programme. His eating and drinking has improved a lot, he settles by himself and most importantly - he sleeps a solid 12 hours stretch at night. We are happy parents and love the fact that the structured routine allows us time with his older brother and for each other. Both boys go down at 18:30 and Mom & Dad have their quality time together!!!! I love it!!!! 


The Baby Love programme brings structure back into your life. Thank you to Jacqui for helping us with both our boys! We are one happy, well-rested family!

Successful story

Img 4904

Our daughter was born prematurely, at 33weeks. She developed a cow's milk protein allergy, together with severe reflux at 6weeks, and from there on, everything went downhill.

We endured 9months of no sleep... we were lucky to get 3-4 hours a day! 30min naps during the day and 45min cycles at night. She would be awake from 11pm to 2am and awake again at 4am (for the day).

We had endless amounts of visits to doctors, pediatricians, sisters, specialists and chiropractors. We were told our last option was a homeopath. However, we didn't feel it necessary to spend another truck load of money on doctors, as her reflux had been under control for quite a while. We were told continuously that if this or that was over, she would sleep better. That never happened. Everything in our lives was affected by our lack of sleep.

I heard about baby love at my niece's birthday party, but to be honest, my husband and I were sceptical, because she was already in a steady routine, and we were worried about the stigma around 'crying it out' and didn't think it would help us... ( and we could not have been more wrong! )

When we eventually decided to implement Baby Love, we were not at home and had to travel, but decided to at least start with their routine and feeding guideline, and to see what happens. For her age, she needed 3naps of 1 1/2 hours during the day, and 10-12 hours sleep during the night. The first day she slept for 3hours during the day and slept through the night. Despite the fact that we had to drive back, and had to do the sleep training in the car, she slept through. If I may add, she NEVER slept in a car. Not even on a 7hour drive to the seaside.

During our training journey, Leah got a tummy virus, and although we had to stop the training, she still slept through. She has been sleeping through since day 1, despite all the hiccups (teething, travelling, tummy bugs...). We just decided from the beginning to be consistent with the routine and the training, and it paid off.

I would really recommend Baby Love to ANY parents. Especially sleep deprived parents, but not exclusively.  It is so much more than just sleep training, and for us, it was a lifesaver!

 One of our numerous 5star reviews:
 "I'd give this product 7 stars if I could. One of my best baby buys to this day! My son was fussy as an infant but settling him was one thing we had little trouble with, thanks to the Nurture One. He'll be turning three soon, and we still don't go anywhere without his special pillow. In fact, I ended up getting two: as soon as we put the first one in the wash, we realised we'd be lost without it and bought another as a backup right away. They've been worth every cent."

12 Steps to Wholesome Nutrition

12 Week   Email Banner

Are you confused about if you should be eating low-carb-high-fat or paleo or vegetarian or free-from? Are you wondering why you can’t lose the weight no matter how healthy the plate on your food is? Do you still count calories? Wondering which, if any supplements you should be taking? Do you think the field of “nutrition” is just a fad? Then please join my friends Ian Craig and Rachel Jesson of The Nutritional Institute for what promises to be a very enlightening and well-rounded course / series of talks.

 

 

12 Steps to Wholesome Nutrition (starting Wed 1st Feb).

“This course, along with its book Wholesome Nutrition, is a response to the South African confusion over food and nutrition, which has been accompanied by fad diets and disillusionment around health, weight and overall lack of control of self. We seek to help empower you with improved knowledge of nutrition, awareness of genetic uniqueness, and with many practical food options and strategies.

The course is set up as a series of talks, that for completeness, can be taken as one. However, with respect of your busy lifestyles, we have also set it up so that you can book on single weeks, picking and choosing the topics that interest you most. Additionally, we will be video taping each session, meaning that it will be available online later on - or you could attend some evenings in person and view the rest online. The choice is yours…

Ian will be leading the course and talking most evenings, Rachel will be contributing to certain talks and providing a recipe clip each week, and they have also recruited a number of very respected specialists (one for each week), whose names will be released through social media (and on our website) week after week.

Cost - R1500 (includes a free copy of their book Wholesome Nutrition), or R200 per single night.

COURSE OUTLINE:

Step 1 – Individuality (1st Feb)

Step 2 – Beyond calories (8th Feb)

Step 3 – Lifestyle and exercise (15th Feb)
