Very informative and loved the focus on tuning into our baby and trusting our intuition as mothers.

This course included so much valuable information that I wish I had from the start. As a new mama there is too much information out there, which often makes us question our approach. Lauren offered great knowledge and helped give me the confidence to continue parenting using my intuition and what feels right, while offering suggestions to make gentle changes to things that are no longer working.

Very intuitive and informative

I loved Lauren's approach to sleep in her Instagram account, then I decided to purchase her course, which I binged in few days 😉 It helped me understand what normal infant sleep is and FEEL that I was not alone following my instinct. It's very easy to get confused with all the information surrounding infant sleep and Lauren gathered solid sources of information to explain it. THANK YOU so much.

Fantastic resource for parents

I have been through the course and watched the videos a few times over - it has given us the confidence to approach sleep in a more relaxed and intuitive way which has resulted in better sleep for baby, mumma and dadda!

Fantastic support to our intuitive nature

I started the course after already following Lauren on social media, so it was not a surprise that I would find this course absolutely fantastic. It is such good solid source of research based knowledge to compliment all the natural instincts we have as parents. I learned a lot I didn't know and felt support in what I already new. Thank you!

Great gentle approach!

LOVE the course! We have begun to implement some of the gentle strategies & beginning to see some positive results. We are in Australia & it is so refreshing to have the guidance available online for a holistic approach that suits our lifestyle and family. Thank you doesn't seem like enough to show our deepest gratitude and appreciation! We are truly blessed to have connected with Isla-Grace.

I wish every parent knew this information!

As a first time mom raising a wakeful baby amongst peers who all sleep trained, this course came as a life - and sanity - saver. I'm so grateful to learn about what "normal" infant sleep actually looks like. This course is so amazingly comprehensive, too, that its wisdom extends far beyond sleep as it teaches parents to parent with the empathy and respect that our kiddos deserve. THANK YOU!

Loved the sleep science behind this course

Really wish I had taken a course like this when my son was younger. I absolutely loved the sleep science behind this course and love that it normalizes night wakings, nursing to sleep and bedsharing. The techniques are parent and baby led, allowing you to be flexible in creating your plan while ensuring it aligns with the values of your family, without compromising attachment.

Happy and rested

Dear Lauren, completing the 6-18 month course helped me release all the negativity, guilt and failure of any form. It was just like you were here to tell me that I’m stronger than I think I am. Thanks to this course and You, my son is happier and much better rested - and so am I. I can’t thank you enough for your guidance and love, for wanting us to understand our baby and his narture.

Finally gave me peace

As a first time mom I was overwhelmed as I was constantly being told that slee p training was the only way for my baby to sleep through the night. I felt bad for feeding and rocking my baby to sleep. But then a friend recommended this course and it has been life changing. I feel like I have a stronger bond with my baby and I am no longer stressed out about her sleep. Thank you!

  1. SO informative, helpful and refreshing. This validated my feelings and answered so many of my questions in a way that made me feel empowered as a parent!

  2. Lauren does an amazing job of normalizing infant sleep! As a first time mom, I have so many questions and truly feel like Lauren addressed them all in her course or via her free virtual village. I have so much more respect for my baby and his development and needs than I ever had before!

  3. Taking this course gave me the confidence and support that I needed. So well explained, honest and direct, but also with academic information that back up all. Every question that I and my husband were wondering for a year has been clarify.
    So grateful to find Lauren!

  4. As a first time momma and with a personality used to having “control”, I became sleep obsessed and spent so much of my time hyperfocused on reading about infant sleep. If only I had taken this course first! It really helped me to understand normal infant sleep and had valuable sleep information all in one place (that otherwise had taken me a long time to accumulate from “google”). Also, let me tell you that this course empowers you as a momma!

  5. I am very pleased with this course and strongly recommend it!
    A very loving, caring, and truly parenting approach represented in a clear concise manner. Not only Lauren has substantial educational background, but she is also a mom of three. I honestly believe that being a mother of three children is an extremely valuable experience in its own. I had previously received advice from professionals who don’t have kids of their own and it is simply not the same.
    I learned a lot about my baby from this course, especially about his high sensitivity. This concept explained his behaviour which I couldn’t previously understand, and now I can respond in a more understanding gentle way.
    In my opinion, this course is not only about sleep, but a life hack course on babies. I really think that taking this course earlier, even before my son’s birth would be extremely helpful. I wish Lauren would make another course for expectant mothers (if it doesn’t exist yet), because that’s when some may have more time (and money) on their hands and can learn what to expect (if first time mom) when the baby arrives. If only I had this information before my son’s birth, I would be much better equipped both emotionally and physically (sleep setup, sleeping belt, etc.) Will definitely be interested in a toddler course once we are there! Thank you for what you do.

  6. This course was so informative and comprehensive regarding infant sleep! It really empowers the parents to make the best decisions for their family while having ALL the information on what is normal for infant sleep. With this course, you can begin making changes in any aspect of sleep that is not working for your family while also keeping anything that you love – even if others have told you that you are creating bad habits which just isn’t true. I highly recommend to all parents in this age range as there is SO much going on with development and sleep during this time.
