Hi there I'm Heidi, mother of two, professional baby sleep consultant,
breastfeeding counselor, award-wining author and founder of this site.
is a quick about me and about how I came to writing these pages. Refer
full story for a more detailed version of my journey on the bumpy sleep
not a company selling baby products.
I'm a fellow mother, researched and trained into sleep consultant and passionate about helping you with the
right baby sleep advice.
I enjoy talking and advising about sleep and babies more than about
just a bit, so you know who's talking ...
About me and sleep
Long before I started researching the science of sleep, for as long as
I can remember, I've had a
fascination for sleep
As a little girl of course I was curious about dreams. How come I had a
dream about that, does it mean something?
Then later why do we dream at all? Then how do we sleep? Can I observe
my own sleep patterns? Why do we sleep? ...
I was so intrigued by this thing
, even more when I learned that not all is
known and understood.
Reading along in books and articles, I discovered many things that a
also found out that simple questions like why do we sleep?
not have a definitive answer.
About me and babies
Growing up I studied physics, but always kept my interest in sleep. My
PhD degree allowed me to keep current with sleep research from a
scientific point of view.
Then I had kids. And two lovely
ones too ... That's me in the picture hiding behind my baby girl
We started out as so many new parents I guess: not knowing what
to expect and often unsure of how to do things
right. But with an immense love for this little wonder called baby
From the first night as a parent, you start valuing sleep quite a bit
than you used to.
And you realize how sleep, baby's and yours, can rule your life ...
It would be nice to be able to say so, but no, my knowledge
sleep has not magically turned my babies into ideal sleepers.
But along the way I did use a lot of that theory
combined it with valuable ideas from my own mom, friend-moms and
I always noted things down in little notebooks and diaries and that
become my little box of sleep tricks. I would often turn to it when a
friend had a sleeping issue with their babies too.
In the past few years, I've been volunteering as a certified
counselor. More often than not, sleep is an important part of the
advice I end up giving along with the breastfeeding help.
About me and this site
Other moms' reactions made me realize that these little notes I took
and the advice I gave,
could actually be interesting to others, and help them.
I thought a website would be the best way to reach many parents around the globe. I had created three small sites
for totally different projects before and I quite liked it. But I never
had the tools to make a real, working and above all visitor-friendly
And then ... I found Site
As skeptic as I was at first, is how
enthusiastic I am now.
They give you all you need to know and the tools to build a real
website, whether it is for fun or business, or to share information
like I wanted to do.
I tried it out for free (30-day trial period), and was hooked from day
