The Fussy Baby Site

One-on-One Consultations


Are you struggling to make sense of your child’s behaviors?

Are you frustrated, confused or at the end of your rope?

Do you want someone to come alongside you, and suggest strategies specifically related to fussy, high need or “spirited” kids?

Being the parent of a high need or spirited child can be an overwhelming and thankless task at times.

The strategies we read online and in the parenting books simply may not work for our more intense, sensitive and persistent kids…leaving us feeling pretty helpless and hopeless at times.

But while our kids may be a challenge to parent, the rewards of doing it right are HUGE.

In fact, research consistently shows that when “difficult” babies are parented with warmth and flexibility, they actually outperform their peers in the classroom by grade one!

My passion is to help parents during those first few years so they can learn the skills and strategies necessary to raise strong, happy and independent kids.

Through one-on-one email consultations, we can address specific issues you may have related to your baby or toddler including (but not limited to):

  • Sleep issues. Short naps, no naps, frequent night wakings? While I can’t provide a detailed sleep plan, I can definitely suggest techniques and strategies that will you the best chance of getting your baby or toddler some better sleep.
  • Picky eating. Does your toddler or preschooler struggle with eating a wide variety of foods (or eating at all)?
  • Tantrums. Spirited toddlers are known for their super-intense meltdowns. I can give you some practical strategies for avoiding and dealing with epic tantrums.
  • Discipline. Which parenting styles and discipline strategies work best for these intense kids?
  • Colic. Do you have a fussy or colicky newborn? Not sure how to soothe him, or which products actually work for colic? I can help.

If you would like to inquire about a one-on-one email consult, please feel free to reach out to me at any time. If I think I can help with your issue, I’ll send you a form to fill out and we’ll get started!

Each consultation includes a total of six emails – three from me, and three (including the detailed intake form) from you.

Together, we’ll tackle your most pressing issue, and I’ll send you practical and proven strategies you can start implementing right away.

And if I feel your issue is a better fit for a doctor or other professional, I’ll let you know this right away so you don’t waste your time or money!

The cost for an email consultation is $69 US.

Here’s what one mom said about a recent consultation we had:

“Holly…has given me the reassurance that I am not alone. Holly helped us to understand my fussy toddler and be able to begin controlling her tantrums. She gave wonderful advice, was very understanding, and more than willing to help us. I would recommend Holly to be of support to you and your little one!”
