Natalie – Your International Baby Sleep Consultant
Mother, Entrepreneur, Creator of the Sleeping Baby System, Self-starter, Sought-after.
A Mother who loves her sleep.

Natalie is a mother who has been where you are right now. She understands how you feel at 3 o’clock in the morning – exhausted and overwhelmed. Natalie knows too well the struggle that parents face when they are sleep deprived, and the feeling that it will never end.

Natalie lives in NSW Australia. Her life revolves around boxing fitness, swimming laps, walking along the beautiful coastline at the beach (to encourage her own sleep!), constant reading to stay updated, making memories with friends and family (the best medicine) and helping young families to sleep well again.


Since 2004, Natalie has dedicated her nursing career to learning and modelling holistic sleeping and settling strategies that provide real results – consistently. As a Registered Nurse and Child and Family Health Nurse with over twenty years of experience in Australia, Natalie saw too many sleep-deprived families that needed more practical care and information than the clinic visit provided. That is why she developed The Sleeping Baby System and the Sleeping Toddler System.

Creator of the Sleeping Baby System and Sleeping Toddler System

Natalie offers a down-to-earth solution to getting little ones to self-settle and sleep longer. After years of experience working as nurse and being a mother, Natalie discovered that effective sleeping and settling strategies were only part of the puzzle. Natalie understands that every baby is an individual and every family is unique. The Sleeping Baby System and Sleeping Toddler System provide a holistic approach to solving children’s sleeping problems by focusing on guiding great days that deliver the best night possible for children aged newborns to five year olds. The solution is never just about the sleep.

Through the Sleeping Baby System and Sleeping Toddler System, Natalie empowers parents with information, confidence and personal choices.

Self-starter and Child and Family Health Nurse

Being a motivated, passionate, self-starter Natalie has accomplished everything she has set out to achieve. She is a mother of three daughters. She is founder of Sleep and Settle® and creator of the Sleeping Baby System and Sleeping Toddler System. Her caring and compassionate nature made it an instinctive move into the nursing industry where she earned a Diploma in Applied Science (Nursing), Post Graduate Diploma in Health Science (Health Promotion) through the University of Newcastle and Post Graduate Certificate in Child and Family Health through the University of Western Sydney, Australia.
