What Can We Help You With?

Your Fussy or

Colicky Baby

Between 10 and 20% of babies are fussy, colicky or "high need". If you're struggling with crying, fussiness, soothing or sleep, we offer resources that can help you find the cause of the issue, as well as proven strategies to help you cope.

Your Fussy Toddler or Preschooler

Fussiness isn't reserved for babies! Some toddlers and preschoolers continue to be fussy, difficult or grumpy, and may continue to struggle with sleep. If you need help with tantrums, sleep, activities or discipline, you're in the right place.

Sleep Help For Your High Need Baby or Toddler

Many high need babies struggle with short naps, no naps and multiple night wakings. They also may resist sleep, and need our help in order to fall asleep. Our blog posts and sleep training ebook will help.

"No​w I know I'm not alone."

"Holly, I cannot begin to find the words to THANK you for your site, Facebook support group and your book, The Fussy Baby Survival Guide. My little girl had extreme colic and is still pretty high needs at 5 months old. After reading your book I began to accept her for her and stop comparing her to other babies. Some days are still tough, but I now know I'm not alone."  Charley
