Dreaming of a good nights sleep? Then read on...

In December 2017 Baby2Sleep was launched, and offered bespoke one to one support to families who needed help in supporting their baby or child to sleep well.

In August 2019, Nicole started creating online baby sleep courses offering online support for parents of babies between 6 and 24 months. The Build Your Own Sleep Plan range has since won various awards and have helped countless families get a better nights sleep for less money.

In 2021, the Child Behaviour and Sleep Support Guide was created, as you cannot support a toddler or young child to sleep the same as you would a baby. Around the age of 2 years old, toddlers begin to develop rapidly and they begin to express their independent spirit which can be challenging. Speech is also developing at a fast pace, and all these can create additional challenges where sleep is concerned. This means we need to approach sleep from more of a behavioural angle, laying solid foundations during the day to support our little ones on their new path to a better nights sleep.

In 2022, Nicole launched the Newborn Guide, ‘What To Expect in The First 6 Months’. This has been created with the parents in mind. Helping them prepare practically and emotionally for their baby’s arrival, and helping them navigate the very normal developments that baby’s go through in their first 6 months of life. This course has also been designed to link new parents to relevant support should they feel they need it in areas that Nicole is not an expert in such as feeding, reflux, tongue tie, womens health and much more. It has been created with the aim being to support the parents mental health during what can be very confusing and difficult times by putting evidence based information all in one place.

Sleep support should be available and affordable to every parent that needs it and unfortunately, not everyone is in the position to be able to afford personalised one to one help.

If you are looking for a good nights sleep and would like a hand to hold on your journey, then take a look at the options available knowing that there is something there that will suit your family.

These courses have been created by a mum who truly understands the depths of sleep deprivation from personal experience, and has continued to study sleep and behaviour to ensure you have access to the most up to date and useful information. You can read more about Nicole’s story in the Manchester Evening News.

Nicole has undertaken the Holistic Sleep Coaching course created by Lyndsey Hookway through BabyEm and Toddler and Pre-School Behaviour course, The Incredible Years.

Nicole has also been featured in the Manchester Evening News, The Sue Atkins Podcast, BBC, ITV, Metro News with more to come.
