It’s OK to ask for help…


Babycare, Sleep, Bottle Feeding, Breastfeeding, Starting Solids & Childproofing

Dorothy Waide, one of New Zealand’s leading sleep consultant’s understands it’s OK to ask for help. With almost 30 years baby nursing and sleep-settling experience, she believes nurture is central to giving the babies their very best start in life and takes an holistic approach to her work, embracing individual families’ needs, environments and lifestyle. When babies are not eating, sleeping, or settling well, it is easy to become overwhelmed and not know what to do. Dorothy is here to help and support families by sharing her knowledge and skills.

In a loving family there are two nutrients a baby needs: sleep and food.
If your baby is not receiving sufficient of one of these, it will affect the other, and this is stressful for the whole household. Let me guide you to a happier baby, a happier you, and a happier family.

I look forward to helping you and your family

Praise for Dorothy Waide

My only regret is that I didn’t contact Dorothy sooner…
We had a horrid time to start with problem after problem with breastfeeding. I went through Dr’s, numerous LC’s, Breastfeeding clinics, and Hospital admissions and no one looked at the bigger picture – until we met Dorothy.
Dorothy gave us the tools and confidence to parent – in particular with feeding and sleeping – the way we wanted to, but were too tired and emotionally exhausted to know what to do or who to turn to. It wasn’t easy, and it didn’t happen overnight but it was gentle and in a way, we were comfortable with. We now have guided our baby into sleeping ON HIS OWN! After 3 months of day sleeps only on us, and sleepless nights, it was like a weight was lifted – literally!
Dorothy listened, we felt respected and supported. I cannot recommend her enough!
