About Me

  >  About Me

Hi, I'm Nicole Ratcliffe

Welcome to Baby2Sleep

I’m Nicole and I am a mum of 2 beautiful girls, Sofia (6) and Alyssia (2).

Like a lot of people, parenting wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, and I am not embarrassed to say that I struggled with my mental health, with sleep, behaviour, and managing a very strong-willed toddler with big emotions.

I know I am not alone in my expectations not quite matching the reality, and I am fully aware that getting help can be costly or hard to access. This is why I have created online guides, sleep plans and courses in the format of video guides for parents of babies from birth through to 6 years old. All the courses from 6 months old come with 2 months online support from me, Nicole, in a private Facebook group.

I am fully aware that a tired brain may not be able to take in too much written content, and you may not always have a book to hand, so with the information being relayed using video, you can take me everywhere at any time and listen to the information in small bite size chunks at times when you feel ready. You can even pop me in your ear while pushing the pram for nap.

I am determined to make a difference to the support available to expectant parents and parents who are already living the sleep deprived life.

The Newborn Guide, ‘What to expect in the first 6 months’ has been created to help new and expectant parents prepare for their new arrival and prepare them for the first 6 months of a baby’s life. It’s the ‘New Parent’s Tool Kit’. Helping parents know what is normal in terms of baby development and sleep along with parental feelings, where to look for help and support and much more. You can watch more about how this course came about on my YouTube Channel.

The award winning Build Your Own Sleep Plan range aims to help tired parents of babies between 6 and 24 months find evidence-based and easy-to-understand information that can help them understand their individual baby’s sleep needs.

Build Your Own Sleep Plan has helped hundreds of families on their sleep journey and has received rave reviews which you can read on  Facebook or the Baby2Sleep website.

I have studied multiple sleep and behaviour courses to gain my knowledge and I have over 4 years experience practicing as a Holistic Sleep Coach,  so you can be safe in the knowledge that I know what I’m talking about.

This is what led to the development of the Child Behaviour and Sleep Support Guide for parents of children from 20 months old through to 6 years old. From this point, sleep issues are rarely just about sleep and need a very different approach.

If you aren’t sure what type of help you need, or would like to know if this is something that can help you, please book one of the free 15 minute calls with Nicole to discuss further.

If you do need more help than online, Nicole does offer personalised one to one support for those that are in a more difficult place and need a hand to hold on their journey.

Nicole has won the following awards:

Theo Paphitis’s SBS award,

Jacqueline Gold’s WOW award,

Twitters Queen of Developing Bonds,

Twice winner of Lux Life Magazine’s Most Trusted Baby Sleep Coach, UK 2020 and 2021 for my online courses.

Nicole knows that not every family needs the in-depth 121 support and coaching, yet still need some degree of help, and that the right knowledge and guidance can make huge differences in peoples lives when it comes to supporting a baby to sleep well.

This is the reason this course has been designed. If you need help with naps, it’s covered, night weaning, it’s here, gentle sleep training and options, they are covered, sleep associations and helping to break them, included, along with so much more useful information.

This is the first online course aimed specifically at parents with this in-depth knowledge that can help improve your families sleep. You can make changes as and when you feel ready, as you always have access to the information.

If you would like to understand baby sleep, and would like to help your baby sleep well, this is for you.

However, if you feel you need the personal guidance and in depth one to one support, you can also get this from Nicole.To book a free 15 minute call to decide what is right for you, you can click here.
