Pam’s 12 Days of Christmas – Day 12
Woop! Woop! It is FINALLY here! The GRAND PRIZE!
Today, you have the opportunity to WIN GREAT SLEEP for your little one that can last a LIFETIME. Within only a couple of weeks, your sweet little baby will be sleeping through the night consistently (or getting up once for a quick feeding session), and taking great naps all on their own. With Pam Nease Sleep, your baby will be able to sleep ANYWHERE and for ANYBODY. You will know with confidence that they will sleep in spite of teething, sickness, developmental milestones and travel. Your child will not only become a #supersleeper, they will LOVE going down for their nap and to bed with my loving. simple.practical and FUN solutions.
After 8 years of full time consulting and seeing the transformations in all the families that we have helped, I am more passionate than ever.
Simply put, healthy sleep is the FOUNDATION to GOOD HEALTH and it SAVES LIVES.
Ok, you might be thinking. Pam aren’t you being a little over dramatic?
No. I am not. It saved me and my tender infant. You see, I hit that awful unthinkable breaking point. I held my son nose to nose and said the terrible words, “ YOU HAVE RUINED my life. Ruined it.” Max had been crying inconsolably for what felt like hours, I was suffering once again from sleep deprivation. It was 2 in the morning and thankfully I had the presence of mind to put him in the crib and walk away. I joke about it in my public speaking presentations and workshops. You will most likely hear me say “I was ready to jump off the bridge and take the baby with me.” It really is NOT a laughing matter. I need to stop perpetuating the myth that if you “power through” all will be fine.
I have been procrastinating writing this last blog post. Our poor Cheryl, Powerhouse Admin/Department of Everything, has been on my case. “Pam … I am moving in a week. I need you to finish writing”. Yep. You read that right. Talk about stress – this woman in my superhero. She truly is. Her young family (3 kids under the age of 7) are changing homes on short notice, a week before Christmas. The other night when I was having a writer’s block, I turned on the Netflix Documentary “When the Bough Breaks” by Jamielyn Lippman. You can watch the trailer here:
** TRIGGER WARNING (loss of life)
This film has been haunting me ever since.
I will always speak openly about the fateful night that I understood shaken baby syndrome, and how hiring a professional to help me teach my son to sleep at 5.5 months old changed my life. The problem is that I do it in a fun, humorous and relatable way. I do not openly speak about the dark side. 11 years later, I am still ashamed and hiding the fact that I suffered from postpartum depression, with sleep deprivation being a major contributing factor. I am even more ashamed of what happened immediately post birth of my first son.
This film brought it all back and more.
I discovered through the documentary how vulnerable both Max and I really were. I had a complete and total break from reality and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and a brief psychotic episode. One of the major contributing factors? You guessed it. Sleep Deprivation.
Only my closet friends and family know about this very scary time in my life. Thankfully – through the right support, safe medicine to help me sleep better (while being able to breastfeed), in addition to psychiatric counseling – within 30 days, I was “better”.
Yes, I have hijacked today’s blog post for a PSA.
I have been trying to raise awareness about perinatal mood disorders and erase the stigma associated with mental illness. It has to start with me. I need to be open and finally share the WHOLE truth.
Last year, when we had our first 12 Day of Christmas, many women opened up and spoke of their own experiences with postpartum. I was moved to tears and wanted to do more. We have various initiatives in place and we would LOVE your HELP. If you are as passionate as we are about maternal mental health, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how you would like to join our movement. If you have recovered from postpartum depression or anxiety – please be brave with me and share your story, so that others can know they are not alone.
I am extremely proud of the work that our very own Sleep Angel Ashley Lohse has done in this area of family health, happiness and wellness.
Ashley has helped families not only get the sleep they need, but to also to gently open up and steer them towards looking into more support options – even once their “child’s sleep has been fixed”.
Guaranteed – I know without a shadow of a doubt – that many women have been able to lift “the baby blues” by choosing to invest in our services for their little ones. Getting healthy sleep again has lifted their “baby blues” and cured their “postpartum anxiety”. For others, including myself, that was not enough. Ashley Lohse has created a document filled with great advice and resources for the families we work with. To learn more about this beautiful woman (inside and out), join my newsletter TODAY. You will also be eligible for an EXTRA ENTRY, insider information (that we only share with our subscribers) and access to special promotions, discounts and giveaways.
Now, let’s get back to why you are here! You WANT SLEEP!
Here is a note from one of last year’s winners, maybe this will BE YOU!
It has been almost a year since Ashley and Pam helped with what seemed the impossible. Before our visits our 8 month old was up every few hours a night and I was running on empty. I was unable to be the mom I wanted to be because I was always tired. After a few coaching sessions and even fewer nights, our son was sleeping through the night and taking long naps. Going to bed was a happy time instead of the beginning of tears. I’m forever grateful for the sleep our family receives and being present with my children. Thank you to the moon and back. Love, The Nistlers
