Jo is a leading baby sleep expert, author of ‘Baby Secrets’ and Prima Baby magazine’s baby sleep expert. Her unique, gentle methods help ensure a great night’s sleep for any baby.
I’m an expert who’s a specialist in:
Getting your baby to sleep should be the simplest, most natural thing in the world. But when your baby won’t sleep, it can affect the whole family. I’m a sleep specialist and can show you a fail-safe way to help your baby get a full night’s sleep.
My pioneering technique, 'spaced soothing', is a failsafe method that teaches babies with sleeping issues to enjoy their sleep and empowers parents to understand their babies better and use the techniques themselves to put their lives back in control.
As a sleep specialist, I’ve developed and constantly honed my techniques by studying hundreds of babies’ sleeping patterns for many years. You can read my bestselling book, Baby Secrets, or you can call me for some expert tailor-made advice.
I offer email support,and even come to your home overnight with my Rescue packages.
I’m also an expert on twins, and I presented on GMTV alongside Dr Hilary Jones, helping parents of twins with their problems.
For practical advice you can trust from a sleep specialist and twins expert, call my advice line.
All babies are unique, amazing little people with their own, sometimes mysterious, ways of letting us know what they really want and need!
And every parent can learn to understand what their little ones are trying to communicate to them. These needn't be ‘baby secrets’ - we’re all capable of understanding what babies are trying to communicate to us.
I don't believe in ultra-strict routines or distraught babies. My methods can give you a happy, smiling child. What could be better? After all, a happy baby equals happy parents. Imagine if you could live in a peaceful, happy household where you don’t dread night times. I can help you with this.
You may have seen me on Richard and Judy talking about my 'spaced soothing' methods. Plus, I’ve helped thousands of people with their baby sleep problems as one of the experts at the UK’s major baby shows. I also write regular articles for baby magazines and baby websites. And a huge highlight for me was launching my book Baby Secrets at the British Embassy in New Zealand.
"A big thank you to Jo for her help in getting our little girl to sleep better.
Natasha wasn't sleeping well at all and by 10 months I realised we needed help and a change of strategy (well a strategy other than just giving her milk so we could all get back to sleep). We were all exhausted.
Jo's spaced soothing technique worked brilliantly. We cut out the milk straight away and it took 11 nights before Natasha first slept through 7pm-7am completely. Those 11 nights werent even very difficult, it was a quick upward curve. Now Natasha is sleeping Really well and we are all delighted!
Every time I speak to a Greatvine expert I always wish I had done it sooner! They are always practical yet supportive - a great combination when you are a tired, frazzled mum. And it's brilliant to know they are always there at the end of a phone or email when you need help.
"Jo was extremely understanding and helpful when I spoke to her on the phone about my 4 month old baby girl’s sleeping. I am in the process of putting her suggestions into practice and have just bought her book which is also full of excellent tips.
I’m only in week one so will let you know if I succeed. If not I am definitely going to ask Jo to come and rescue me with her Rescue Package!"
"Jo was extremely helpful and practical. She has given me simple instructions which are working already. I am very grateful! Thank you jo!"
"We will never be able to thank you enough for everything you have done, I have no doubt that the girls are much happier now and me and Marc get time to be a couple again…You’ve given me back the most important things in life, laughter, joy and the best bit…..sleep.
Thanks a million and good luck with your book & future TV appearances… we’ll be watching.
Lots of Love Marc, Amanda & Sophie and Chloe XXX"
"Thank you so much for the last 6 nights. You have changed our lives, and our babies are so happy thanks to you. I could manage another set of twins - no problem!
Many hugs and kisses
Sandra and Dimitris"
