Get. Some. Sleep.

… without abandoning your gentle parenting ideals

… without weeks of disruption

… and even while nursing or bed-sharing (if that’s what feels good! OR change it if you don’t love it!)

Are you googling in the middle of the night because you’re:

✯ scared that your baby will never sleep well unless you cave under pressure to do ‘cry it out’?

worried your baby isn’t getting enough sleep?

✯ worried that you or your partner are actually starting to crack with exhaustion?

desperate to teach your baby to go down easier and wake less at night?

confused by conflicting advice, with none of it sounding right for your family?

done with pacing, bouncing, rocking, or feeding All. Night. Long.

IF YOU’RE a gentle and respectful Parent, I expect you’ve read how in the first three months of life we really need to do everything we can for baby: including doing the work to put them to sleep each time, or letting them fall asleep on us… but then what?

So many parents I work with start out with the plan to bed-share and feed on demand as the easiest way for everyone to get a good nights’ sleep.

And they’re absolutely right. It is vital for establishing supply for parents who are breastfeeding/ bodyfeeding/ pumping and an awesome way for everyone to adjust to life as – and with – a new tiny person in the family.

Sleep Savvy Online Courses Are:

Gentle: this method never leaves a baby to cry alone  – even for a minute (like in cry-it-out or ‘walk-in-walk-out’ methods).

Respectful: we meet babies where they are, developmentally, and don’t expect them to achieve things they’re not yet capable of. And we make a plan which respects your needs and goals as a human adult, too.

Fast: parents using this method typically see sleep transformed in just four nights: with most of the progress typically made in the first two – rather than 12-14 nights like many books and programs out there. I mean, who has that kind of stamina when you already have a sleep deficit?

Collaborative: the method lays foundations for respectful communication, boundaries and consent with your baby, with benefits which extend way beyond sleep.

Here’s what I need you to know about this magic

The ways you’ve helped your baby to sleep up until now, you did to survive. I invite you to release any guilt you are feeling. 

If you’ve been shamed for bed-sharing or bodyfeeding/ breastfeeding to sleep, or yoga-ball-bouncing to sleep- you can relax. This is a gentle-parenting-friendly zone and I have your back because I’ve been there.

If you feel embarrassed that you believed sleep would or should be easy, or that you each month kept believing it would organically get better and then it didn’t- I’ve got you, my tired friend.

I never promise that your baby will sleep through the night. No human does that, least of all a little baby. We all wake multiple times at night- it is just that right now your baby needs more help getting back to sleep than is sustainable for your own sleep needs. 

But, if you’re ready to commit to just four nights of compassionately supporting your baby, I guarantee* that this method will help you teach your child to fall asleep more easily at bedtime, and again when they wake at night, without always needing your help. 

This method is not ‘cry it out’. Nor is it a temporary fix like when people need to keep repeating their “sleep training” method : we’re going to teach your baby lifelong sleep skills built on feelings of safety and security.

* No Risk Money-Back Guarantee: included in your Sleep Savvy course is one email response from me, to help you troubleshoot. Create your plan and then use the email as needed. If you are unhappy with the course – just send me an email with the plan you created from watching the entire course, and a record of how each of the four nights and days went. Then you can choose: credit your course price toward consulting with me or take a full refund!

Here’s the problem:

The only way your baby knows to fall asleep or fall back to sleep depends on a parent helping them. Usually by giving them something to suck on (a human or artificial nipple or pacifier) and/or rocking, walking or bouncing etc.

Sleep Savvy gives you a plan to feel confident in how you communicate with your baby in a different way- now it’s time to learn to sleep without sucking, motion or constant cuddles.

Yes, they’ll complain and be frustrated (take it from me, you can’t change much about any human’s cozy habits without complaint). And you will lovingly support them as they adapt to your new boundary. Babies and toddler are so smart- the learning happens fast! 

Sleep Savvy teaches parents how everyone can get more sleep in a way that protects secure attachment, preserves and support lactation for those who want it, and offers respectful weaning support for those who are ready for that instead.

What parents say about the magic of Sleep Savvy:

“This course was amazing! The info provided was such an important building block to determine details of our sleep plan and inform the choices I made. I was nervous about our breastfeeding relationship, him waking up his older brother, the fact that he’s a contact koala baby. We had been bed-sharing and boobing all night for over 10 months. I was too tired and needed help. Moorea’s sleep course gave me the confidence and plan to just try!  He squawked for less than a minute every time he woke up, but then put himself back to sleep!  He’s been sleeping through the night for a while now and I can’t believe it! After a few days, the new sleep routine has even helped with naps! No more contact-napping- I’m free!! I truly can’t recommend this program enough!”

– Melissa


“I want you to know that your method was such a source of hope and light to me during a dark time of deep, prolonged sleep deprivation. Your work helped me climb out of that dark place, while respecting myself and my son, and honoring our relationship.”

– Samantha, Pittsburgh PA

Here’s where most other sleep consultants have it wrong:

they aren’t trained in lactation, infant or perinatal psychology, or educated in attachment, which leads to…

methods offer a ‘one size fits all’ solution, or expectations by age. Instead, Sleep Savvy is tailored to be as unique as your baby and your family’s current needs and values

Some more rigid “natural parenting” perspectives don’t view the family as a system including adults with needs – such as bodily autonomy (you’re touched-out!) freedom from pain (your back, your neck!), and the ability to function at work and at home, preservation of adult relationships – as well as baby’s needs for responsiveness. The need for sleep is a basic requirement which every member of your family deserves! Parents and babies both have mental health needs.

I’m Moorea, The Sleep Witch

I’ve worked with tiny humans for over 25 years, most recently as a sleep consultant and lactation educator-counselor for over a decade. In that time I have helped thousands of babies (and parents) to sleep. 

I had my own wakeful baby, too- the inspiration for my life’s work. My kiddo seemed to need less sleep than any other baby I knew and woke every hour for many months. I re-read all the books I had used as a postpartum doula and night nanny, and the only method that sat right with my education and values actually seemed to make things worse!

Waiting-it-out was making me delirious with sleep deprivation. In fact, I experienced a short period of postpartum psychosis when night-waking was at its worst. But I still couldn’t bear to let my baby cry in a room alone (even with ‘check-ins’).

I had lost all sense of agency, creativity and personal power that I’d work so hard to cultivate in my life pre-parenting. 

So I took everything I knew about infant and toddler development, lactation and human cultural anthropology and dove deep into the research on infant sleep biology (why wasn’t this in the sleep books?!)  and created a method that would work for all families: especially co-sleeping and breastfeeding / chestfeeding ones. 

It was an experiment that turned out to be a miracle for my mental health and then a miracle for my friends’ families. I started teaching little classes that grew. Ten years later, Sleep Savvy has saved thousands of parents from exhaustion and the brink of mental health crisis. 

I know that parents can get their own needs met and still parent gently and attentively. We can acquire habits of communicating our needs, to model self care and boundaries for our children. 

Any good witch will tell you that consistency is an often-overlooked magical practice. Creating wellness, peace and ease takes trust, commitment and dedication. There is no easy potion. The magic is in you.  I’m just here to guide you with my experienced wisdom. 

You can expect to feel good about this process and you can expect it to go more smoothly than you imagined; but you must also expect to put in some work to support your baby! 

There’s no better feeling than learning to stay present and supportive and hold boundaries while your baby learns new sleep skills. Sleep Savvy is about balance and empowerment! 

The Savvy Sleep method walks you, step-by-step, through making a sleep plan that leaves nothing out and takes nothing for granted. 

The end result: sweet, restorative rest. Emergence from the fog of intensively caring for your baby or toddler at sleep times as if they were still a newborn, while under-functioning in the rest of your life.

Here’s what’s included:

🌒 Short, easily digestible sections (you can watch or just listen on a walk or while folding laundry). Skip segments that aren’t applicable to you at that time. 

🌒 Step-by-step instructions to create your unique plan to get your baby to sleep
