Latest update: September 11, 2018

Author: Heidi Holvoet, PhD

In these baby product reviews I discuss little gems - hand-picked by myself and based on my day-to-day experience when working with families as their baby sleep consultant.

Each product promotes good sleep habits, promotes absolute safety and generally makes your nights more comfortable.

We cover the absolute basics, specific newborn and toddler sleep products, baby monitors, carriers and some smart cosleeping ideas.

Baby basics

Toddler gear

Can a thing help your child sleep?

Yes and no.

Yes absolutely, some gear can and will increase your baby and toddler's chances for self soothing, sleeping through the night, reducing colic, relieve physical discomfort and so on. That's because they help create the right environment and help you create the right opportunities to optimize her sleep.

But of course no, there is not a magic product that solves all your baby's sleep issues, "guaranteed tonight!!!" (please be very careful with those that do promise that by the way).

Have your say too!
