It’s OK to ask for help…

Dorothy Waide is New Zealand’s most experienced baby sleep consultant with over 45 years of experience.

Dorothy takes a holistic approach to her work, embracing gentle parenting practices involving minimal crying while taking into account individual families’ needs, environments, lifestyles, latest research, and mixing the old with the new to get the best outcome for your baby with their sleep.

I have over 21 years of in-home 24/7 care worldwide as a postpartum care provider and certainly know about sleep deprivation for parents. My background qualification is as a Karitane Mothercraft Nurse, and I qualified in 1973.

I am the author of two books: ‘You Simply Can’t Spoil a Newborn’ and ‘Simply Parenting: 12 Weeks to 12 Months’. I have a third book in the pipeline: ‘Simply Parenting Over 12 Months.’

I also work alongside professional groups who are wanting to upskill their methods when dealing with parents and babies’ sleep, feeding, and food.
