The Fussy Baby Site

For Parents

I have a passion for helping parents of fussy, colicky or high need babies and toddlers.

When I see a screaming baby out in public, it’s all I can do to not run over, give the mom a hug, and say, “I’ve so been there! It will get better!”.

Since 2007, I have written countless blog posts, both here and for Huffington Post, and have interviewed many leading experts in the field (including Harvey Karp, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, and Marc Weissbluth).

Feeling overwhelmed and defeated by your fussy, demanding baby or toddler?

It's common to feel confused and isolated when parenting a high need child. If you're at the end of the rope with your child's sleep, crying or fussiness, we've got something just for you.

I am also the author of The Fussy Baby Survival Guide, Sleep Training and High Need Babies, and Everything You Need to Know About Colic (and nothing you don’t).

Early in 2017, I decided to return to school, and am now working on my masters degree in Family & Human Development, specializing in parenting and high need kids.

I also run two Facebook support groups with over 30,000 members (a baby group and a toddler+ group)…so you get support any time of the day or night!
