Neither my baby was happy in this situation nor us as his parents.Besides, As a first time mum I was mentally emotinally exhasuted and anxious. On the other hand, my helping resources were also very few as we were in quarantine during the pandemic period as a country.
So,I started to googling ‘how do I get my baby to sleep? All that I could found sleep training but I had not too much idea about sleep training at those times.
I desperatly contacted with any of them. My purpose was going to get remedy as soon as possible to help our little one. When my son was around 5 months old, had sleep trained and he had started to sleep independently in a short period of time.But with a little difficulty!!!!
and as a sleep counsoltant my journey has begun…
People around me who knew that we got sleep trained for my baby they contacted me because they were also dealing with insomina and looking for a cure for their babies.
When I started to told them about our sleep training experience as a mom, they asked bunch of questşons related to our sleep training and told me that it wasn’t fit their parenting style, it was a bit diffucult for them, and if there was more gentle method out there or not?
As a mum, they were totaly right about their concerns.I was feeling the same feelings, anxiety, mom guilt.But at those times I felt that there is no other choice except sleep training.I thought that all of the sleep training methods were the same but I wronged!!
So I started to search about more gentle methods for all of the parenting styles.
As a result of my research, I had the opportunity to meet Mrs. Güliz, the coordinator of International Parenting and Health Instute Turkey.
In that education model that it promised to help babies to get independent sleep habits without damaging the bond of trust between mother and baby, which I value the most.
After I ended up my certification process I started to introduce the holistic sleep approach to the families that who try to cope with insomnia as a family.So I offer to parents help and support with infant and child sleep concerns.
