'I made these very gentle changes and I can honestly say both mine and my little girls lives are better now and happier. I did nothing drastic, there’s been no crying, no obvious changes for her whatsoever, just kind and gentle ways to improve things.' Nicola & Ruby

No Milk Like Mama’s Sleep Support is available worldwide via online consultation.
Holistic Sleep Support is provided by Sian Aldis, IBCLC & Holistic Sleep Coach.
Many families are consumed with worries around sleep. Holistic Sleep Support offers information on nurturing alternatives to cry-it-out and similar sleep training methods, along with an understanding of what is normal for your child and ways to help you cope.
You are the expert in your child and the role of Holistic Sleep Support is to support you in finding ways that fit your family towards more settled sleep.
Working with sleep biology, a listening ear and a caring approach, you are supported to reach your goals, whilst keeping your child’s physical and emotional health, and your family, at the heart of any changes or suggestions. My role is to work with you to optimise settled sleep whilst increasing your confidence in your parenting and understanding your child’s individual needs.
Working with an IBCLC Lactation Consultant, you can be assured that your breastfeeding relationship will be prioritised alongside optimising settled sleep. An IBCLC Lactation Consultant is the highest international qualification and gold standard in Breastfeeding Support .
Holistic Sleep Support does not advocate any methods that involves leaving your child to cry alone.
