TESTIMONIALS

" "I can’t thank Belinda at 'All Things Baby' enough for helping us get a better grasp on dealing with a baby that is allergic to sleeping! After an in home consultation and a further week of contact, we are all getting much more sleep by adopting her recommendations. Her knowledge and support was invaluable to us and I am enjoying my first experience as a mother so much more. Less stress and tears now! Highly recommended!"Samantha - Central Otago"

""We can't speak highly enough of the service we received from Belinda. She really knows her stuff when it comes to babies and their (lack of) sleep! She went above and beyond to support our family, checking in regularly and always giving realistic advice and suggestions that worked for us" Abbie - Queenstown Lakes District                                                                                                                                                     "

""Hi All.. after Belinda literally saving my life or that's how it felt I wanted to put a testimonial on this page ... Gracie was 4 weeks old, only sleeping max 8 hours in a 24-hour window, not settling and I wasn't getting any leeway. Fortunately, a close friend introduced me to Belinda's services and pushed me to contact her. All though Belinda is on another Island her advice, daily prompts, messages, literature and general support was life-saving! At 4 weeks I had no routine for my newborn, I was sort of winging it and making sure she was fed, clean and burped - what else do you need to do right!?? Wrong I learn't routine is just as important for your baby as it is for you. I am pleased to say once I took Belinda's advice, I shortly increased my baby's sleep time to 14-16 hours per day and was able to take my life back and put order in hers. Seriously Belinda is certainly worth an email, phone call or whatever is the best way for you to contact her, I really cannot put into words just how much she saved my sanity! One very happy customer ... Thank you Belinda for getting me through those first few weeks with my first!  Sarah - Auckland "

""Thank you so much for your help, Belinda! Although I felt like I had tried everything to get my little one to sleep you were able to give more suggestions and a thorough plan which really helped! Your support and encouragement to keep persevering was great and we are finally getting some more sleep in our household!!

"“Our darling daughter Jessa was just under a year old and taking a long time to settle and waking frequently throughout the night. After approaching Belinda and discussing our situation she recommended for us to keep a sleep log for a short period for her to assess our situation. Belinda returned to us with a suggested sleep program and within 4-5 days our daughter was going down easily and sleeping a full night! We highly recommend her services, very satisfied and happy, because if baby sleeps everyone sleeps!” Shana - Wanaka"

""Our triplets have known Belinda since they were born as she was their nurse in NICU. They were very excited to hear she was moving to Wanaka cos they think she is pretty awesome. So were we because she helped us get them to go to sleep much easier. I dreaded every sleep time as our routine involved patting them for ages until they were asleep. (which is difficult with 3 babies and only 2 arms.) With Belinda's help, they now go down much easier which Defo helped save our sanity and our wrists! We Highly recommend her." Gwen - Wanaka"

""I just wanted to say thank you again for helping us with Stellans sleeping, the transformation is remarkable and I am so relieved and also surprised, how easy it has been and how well Stellan has adapted. I have now stopped using the breathing noise in the night and Stellan mostly sleeps through or self settles if he does wake. He also goes to sleep by himself during the day and at night. So again, thank you so much for taking the time to help us! It has made a huge difference!"  Marlen - Central Otago "

""A huge thank you to Belinda who worked with us to get our 9 month old into some good sleeping patterns. I was so tired & struggling to think straight. Belinda broke everything down from food, nap times, bed time routines  & came up with a great plan. I loved how you weren't pushy & gave options to choose what the best fit was for our family. We now have a happy wee 9 month old who is getting a lot more sleep through the night which makes for very happy parents thanks again Belinda! X"  Becks - Wanaka"

""Belinda was just the supportive person I needed to help Briar form better sleep habits. I found her super easy to work with and she really encompassed the whole family's needs in her approach. The improvements in Briar's day sleep and settling is outstanding and I feel I have consistent and easy strategies to help with any wake ups. Belinda combines research, experience and common sense to explain the best sleep options and although at the start I was unsure if anyone could work magic with my unsettled baby, I took her advice on board and saw results and patterns emerge in days. Thank you!!" Carys - Wanaka"

Carys

"Thanks to Belinda my son went from 3-10 wakeups a night to 0-1 in a few days!!! She is so good at looking at the whole picture and making suggestions for improvements."

Sophie

"I met Belinda via our local Plunket, and kept her card just incase.... I required some advice from her when our Daughter was 5 months old and we wanted to ditch the dummy and help her to learn to self settle. Belinda offered easy to read advice, and options that best suited us and our baby. and successfully after 2 day we had our baby self settling. Cannot recommend highly enough, Thanks Belinda :-)"

Gina

"Belinda provided excellent advice and created a short/medium term plan tailored to help us get our little girl’s sleep on the right track. She had been born premature and for 4 months I had struggled big time to find any sort of sleep/feed rhythm leading to me being exhausted, frustrated and feeling completely lost. Because Belinda is a mother herself and also previously a NICU/Plunket nurse she was able to provide a holistic, well rounded approach to our plan, looking at everything. She truly listened to our personal situation and was able to provide us with resources to help us now and beyond this immediate period in our girl’s life"

Lucinda

"Belinda was recommended to me by another mum and I am so thankful we were put in touch with her! Our 13 month son had been waking between 6 - 10+ times a night for the past year and I had well and truly reached breaking point! our son has a few health issues that have contributed to his lack of sleep- and i felt as though we were in safe hands with Belinda as she is also a nurse. She took these issues into consideration when offering help and advise which was really great. Belinda came for a home visit for the night and helped us put everything in place and reassure us that we were doing the right thing. In the week before her visit she helped us change our sleep and nap structure to suit our sons needs which helped a great deal already. This combined with the home visit has really helped us and our little guy get a lot more sleep which I am so very thankful for. Throughout the process Belinda was kind and considerate and not in anyway judgmental or pushy. She helped us figure out a plan that works for us and or family and has been on hand to help when we have needed advice in the week following the home visit. I had been going to and from getting help for a couple of months- all i can say is i wish i had done it sooner! A big thank you to you Belinda for helping us all get some sleep and making our wee man a lot more happier :)"

"We found Belinda on the internet, surprised (and relieved!) that we had such services here in Wanaka. We took our 6month old son away for 2 weeks at Xmas and ever since he wouldn’t sleep for more than 30min at a time at night and in the day would only sleep while moving (pram, front pack) or on me. This wasn’t improving when we returned home so we tried “cry it out”. Night 1 he spewed 4 times, night 2 he power chucked from both ends! Thought this wasn’t for him. Night 3 I tried continuously pick up and put down from 7pm til 2.30am before letting him win! 5 days later enter Belinda, tried different techniques and found CIO was best for him without me re-entering the room. She sat with us and talked us through it that first night which was essential. So good having her there to help us through it and answer questions. A week of email support afterwards and we were well on our way to sleep. It’s now been 10 days and tonight he went down lay in bed looking around then rolled over and went to sleep. If you want to enjoy the rest of summer by putting your child to bed then sit in the sun and eat ice cream like us AND get a better sleep at night AND a child that actually sleeps in his/her cot talk to Belinda!"

Nicky

"We got help from Belinda since we wanted our 9 months old daughter to be able to sleep in her cot and get her to go to sleep earlier. I also wanted to use a technique a bit more gentle than the "cry it out" method. Belinda really listened to what we wanted and made a sleep plan for Charlie-Rose. It blew my mind as the very first night of the sleep training, she went to bed early AND stayed in her cot all night!!! The improvement in a short time was incredible. She was also not interested in food and after a week of sleep training, she started to eat solids happily as it was all sleep related. We still have some points to work on but I can't recommend enough getting Belinda's advice if you don't know where to start. I was totally overwhelmed, and it got me confident to be consistent on the whole sleep training adventure."

Julie

"approached Belinda when our son was well and truly into the 4mth sleep regression - from starting off being a great sleeper he had suddenly switched to catnapping during the day (or on me) and waking more each night. I had been having to feed and/or rock to sleep. Belinda made excellent suggestions, which were gentle on both baby and me, and was so supportive, encouraging and knowledgeable! Now after just a week he is mostly self settling, having good day naps and only waking once at night. Thank you so much for Belinda for all your help!"

Victoria

"Belinda gave me the confidence to know that what I was doing with our 12 week old was right. A few weeks after our consultation we have a perfect sleeper"

Sarah

"Belinda is amazing, she helped us with our baby girls sleep problems from 10 weeks old with continued support through to 4 months old. She made things easy to follow, supported us in our wishes as parents and most of all helped us all get some sleep! I couldn’t recommend her and services enough. She would be my first point of call for any sleep issues as our baby gets older, her number is well and truly saved in my phone!!"
