I cannot thank you enough for your words of advice. I have read through so many sleep posts, and every time I thought about putting your words into play, and eventually gained the motivation to actually do it.
I credit you for helping to get my little one to sleep better during the day and as a result sleeping so well during the night.
I had previously resigned to the idea of my little one just catnapping and there was nothing I could do about it.
It turns out, he did better with another blanket layer (he was cold), he slept better when I kept him awake for an extra 15 mins (he was not tired enough), he only has 2 naps a day instead of 3 (he needed to drop the third nap) and he did even better when his solids intake increased to 3 meals instead of 2 (he was hungry)
Now I can feed him, pop him in bed, rub his back for a while until he starts humming, and then leave the room. When it previously took me up to 30 mins to get him to sleep and then need to resettle again 45 mins later, he now sleeps a good stretch of 1.5 to 2 hours, 2 naps a day.
I wanted to post this to let others know that your advice is so beneficial!
Thank you times a million.

I think I need to get her advice soon. DS2 4 months old is a shocker to sleep during the day. Will only cap nap for maybe 3 20mins sessions all day. On the odd occasion he will nap for 90mins maybe in the afternoon. This has only happened 3 times in 3 weeks. He has 5 breastfeed a day 1 180ml bottle at night and 3 solids meals as per paed instructions due to dairy intolerance

I didn't so much get advice from VP but I find her advice is really good. I know that sometimes it sounds quite harsh but some kids do need her approach.
