about Heidi Holvoet

Hi and Welcome to!

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.

Solving your baby sleep issues ... gently and effectively

Helping your baby sleep through the night, self soothe and nap well consistently is important. For your baby and you right now, but also for optimal health in the future. As a sleep consultant, I have helped hundreds of families achieve these crucial skills and through this website, I want to help you do the same.

From newborn sleeping tips, tiny and bigger baby all the way to toddler advice: info, downloads and 1-to-1 online counseling by a professional sleep expert, it is here for you.

You'll find down-to-earth baby sleep help, not just the classic "put your baby down awake" but strategies that work, also in the long run.

The techniques I've developed are positive progressive which means they are gentle for baby and you yet highly effective.

This approach ensures that the skills are ingrained naturally in baby's brain. That results in long term effects: sleeping skills that last a life-time.

Because not only is everyone happier with a baby sleeping a lot ...

... the benefits of sleep are also extremely important for optimal baby development.

A baby with bad sleeping routines not only risks sleep disorders or disturbances now, as an older child or as an adult. She will also have increased chances to develop child obesity and emotional difficulties like depression and anxiety. Researchers insist on the importance of teaching babies to regulate their own sleep as soon as possible and to have them sleep enough.

With the right guidance and advice, you can do it the gentle way. And your child will grow up to be a confident healthy person who loves sleep.

Let's get started today, together!

With love and dedication,
