Well Deserved Sleep For Baby And Parents!
The LOA is amazing, and it has worked for me every time. In fact, I had been using it for a long time without knowing what it was. After I read The Secret, however, I understood it much more, and was able to use it better!
My story will strike a chord with new parents (NPs) everywhere. With a small baby’s erratic schedules, NPs suffer terribly from lack of sleep. I didn’t want to impose schedules on my little one, but I needed her to sleep through the night so that my husband and I could also get some much needed sleep. I read through the techniques used for sleep training, but couldn’t bear the thought of letting my baby cry herself to sleep, or not cuddle her when she woke up, etc.
So I started telling my baby, husband, and everyone who asked, that my baby was indeed sleeping through the night (she wasn’t). Every chance I got, I’d say, “It’s a blessing, really. I’m so grateful that she goes to bed at 11pm on the dot and sleeps a solid ten hours until 9am.”
Telling it to others helped reaffirm my own belief in it.
It took only TWO days. On the third day, my baby was indeed falling asleep at 11pm and not a single peep from her until she woke up at 9am the next day. Hurray!
