RSS has been named a 2013 National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) Honors winner, recognized for providing invaluable and realistic sleep advice to parents with babies and toddlers.

NAPPA’s independent expert judges and parent testers evaluated hundreds of submissions for their innovation, safety, quality and the degree to which they make parenting easier. In - the website by professional sleep consultant Heidi Holvoet - the jury appreciated the wealth of gentle yet effective no-nonsense advice and techniques that are both realistic and successful.

“Our Parenting Resources competition honors the most innovative, reliable and educational resources available to families,” says Julie Kertes, NAPPA General Manager. “I’m proud that our winner list includes large corporations, Mom ‘n’ Pops and everyone in between -- all deserving of this recognition.“

“It is definitely an honor to receive this award,” sleep consultant and author Heidi Holvoet says, “even though it is the 'yes-she-sleeps-better-now!!' feedback from parents that encourages me every single day, this appreciation by external experts is important and I am proud to have built an award-winning site that helps parents.”

What makes different from the many other sleep sites is that Heidi effectively helps parents improve their baby's sleep without claiming to have THE solution. Instead she focuses on individual and long-term results. She does this by providing a lot of information, tackling a myriad of sleep problems and offering different types of solutions to suit the many different needs.

“If a magical sleep solution did exist, all babies would sleep perfectly and not a single parent out there would be sleep deprived,” the sleep consultant explains. “But in reality there just isn't this one general method that will work for every baby in every family.”

“My mission is to help parents find out what is causing their baby's sleep issue, and then to show them the solutions that fit their baby, their family and their situation,” the passionate mother of two continues, “That's when you get results because parents learn to do exactly what their baby needs.”

Key features of include 350+ pages of easily navigated content, age sections (newborn, 1-6 months, 6-12 months and toddler), tips and techniques for sleeping through the night, self soothing, solving common sleep problems, crib safety and SIDS, … The “Ask a Question” service (personalized counseling with Heidi Holvoet) is also popular with parents.

“There are plenty of resources in the market for parents looking for sleep advice for their baby or toddler,” reported one of the NAPPA judges, “however, this website does a nice job of sorting out the unnecessary information and providing parents with everything they need to know in a concise, easy to understand manner.”

Passion to help other parents is what it is all about for Heidi Holvoet. That is why she cherishes parent comments such as this one: “Hi Heidi, wanted to tell you a great big thanks for your tips on self soothing the gentle way! Our little girl is now 8 1/2 months old and has been going to sleep more and more awake since trying the technique. She now goes down completely awake, falls asleep in 10 minutes and goes back to sleep at night when she wakes. She sleeps 10-11 hours a night and her naps have gone from 30-45 minutes to 1-2 hours. All without the severe and harsh crying it out methods!”
