Baby sleep and feeding consultant


Practical, customized plans for newborn behaviour, breastfeeding problems and sleep issues.

Online and face to face consultations in Lisburn, Northern Ireland.


Parenting should not be a struggle

Caring for your child is the biggest responsibility you will ever face. When you feel confused, tired or all out of ideas, it can also feel hard and exhausting.

When you book a consultation, we will create a plan to achieve your parenting goals and create a more enjoyable experience for both you and your child. One of the advantages of booking a consultation with a baby sleep and feeding consultant is that if you have a feeding problem, fixing it often helps sleep! Alternatively, if you are breastfeeding you can be assured that you won’t be told to stop in order to improve sleep.

Hi! I’m Rebecca

I’ve been a parent for over 10 years so I really do understand how hard it is! Breastfeeding problems, colic, sleepless nights, I’ve been there!

With over 20 years of experience working with families face to face in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, I’m confident I can help you too. I also work remotely with families around the world!

You weren't meant to parent alone

It takes a village to raise a child, but in our modern society most parents are struggling on their own. With so much confusing information on the internet, and conflicting advice from family and health care professionals, it can be hard to find that clarity you need to move forward.

Responsive, gentle parenting is hard work. It  involves meeting your child’s emotional and physical needs 24/7, and usually with very little support.

When you are exhausted and experiencing worry and guilt, you might question what you are doing and how you are performing as a parent. 

Perhaps you are worried about your fussy baby, who seems to be in pain and you’re not sure what you should try next. 

Maybe breastfeeding is really important to you, but it’s agony, or your baby isn’t gaining weight. 

Perhaps you are really sleep deprived, but don’t know how to change sleep without resorting to sleep training. 

When we have a consultation, we come up with a plan with lots of practical suggestions and new skills for moving forward. A consultation won’t reduce your child’s need for connection with you, but it will help make parenting easier!
