Heidi's warm, compassionate, thoughtful and highly experienced baby sleep help and advice enabled our twin's sleep to improve dramatically and within a few weeks time frame. We had evenings again! They didn't have 45 minute naps anymore! There was no crying!
I'm Heidi Holvoet, Phd - more about me - and this baby sleep site is the hub from where I share all my advice, sleep plans and techniques that I know can help you and your little loved ones sleep more, and better.
I'm very happy with these techniques because they've allowed me for over 14 years now to help thousands of parents worldwide and their babies sleep in this crucial time in their lives.
We do this together through free resources, DIY and group baby sleep programs and 1:1 sleep consultations with me.
Don't just take my word for it - we all have to be sceptical as parents and do our research! - but have a browse through the parent testimonials.
As a baby & toddler sleep consultant I'm passionate about helping you discover exactly what your baby needs right now and to show you gentle ways - no tears, no crying it out, ever (not the hidden kind either!) - that make it doable for you and your baby to see real results.
