Life before Pam: When my first son was a baby, I had no idea what I was doing. People told me to just follow my instincts (which worked to a certain extent) but I was given much conflicting advice, and eventually read conflicting books about how to get my baby to sleep. I tried EVERYTHING from shushing, rocking, bouncing, co-sleeping, nursing to sleep, using the baby swing, dream-feeding, etc., but my 5-month-old was napping poorly and waking numerous times at night. I was going crazy, feeling like, “This should be easier by now!”
Enter Pam Nease. I had heard about her through my mom, who had worked at the local pregnancy care centre in Kelowna. Pam’s method was clear and easy to follow, and my husband and I were able to implement it with confidence knowing our son would eventually “get it” and sleep well if we followed her advice. He did! He is still a super-sleeper at 9 years old. We then hired Pam with our second child when he was old enough to learn to sleep. With our third and fourth children we helped our babies sleep on our own, using what we had learned from Pam with our other babies, with great success. We weren’t always perfect but in the end, having Pam’s tools in our parenting tool belt has been a great blessing!
