I also went to Masada July last year. I loved it, they saved my sanity, I didn't want to leave. My son was a different baby once we left. The nurses are angels. I was covered completely so no out of pocket.

We also went to Masada and they saved our little families sanity! My DS is now a great little self settler, I am grateful to the midwives there everyday!

Is it hard to get into these schools? I have a 6 month old who wakes hourly or less and only wants a feed to put her back to sleep. Needless to say I am just a tad desperate for some sleep. So is she. I don't want to let her cry it out or do controlled crying. What methods do they use? Are they calming natural ones?
Thanks for the info xox

call them and discuss your situation, they prioritise desperate cases.
Masada Mother Baby Unit
It is part of a private hospital, so if you have hospital cover with your private health insurance you should be completely covered, we were.
They will send you a questionnaire and a referral form to get your Dr to sign.
The questionnaire covers things like how many hours in 24 your baby is sleeping, how much sleep you are getting, PND, feeding habits of baby etc....this helps them prioritise those who are really needing help fast.

I great thread. My DD was born 6 weeks early so was in premie room until lungs fully developed. To watch them handle her and settle her was fantastic. It made my life so much easier when she came home 8 days later.

I should add though that I found them to be open to modifying this to suit what you are comfortable with, you just have to be clear with them at the start what your goals are and any limits or boundaries you want to set. There were families there when I was there who co-slept and didn't want that to change and there was no pressure on them to do so.

Also, do they advise wrapping the baby? My bubs is already rolling over and can't be wrapped.
My bubs self settles at night but can't during the day for some reason. Did they advise anything about catnapping?
Sorry for all the questions. The only thing like that they have in Adelaide is Torrens House, but they just follow all the text book things (watch for tired signs, wrap the baby and pat them to sleep) I already know those things and have tried them but they don't work for my bub.
