Holistic Baby Sleep System: Review & Giveaway {9/18; US; ARV $40}

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

Thanks to two years of sleep challenges with my son, I was very interested to learn more about Holistic Baby Sleep System when the opportunity was presented. You may remember posts about my baby’s parties in the middle of the night… We’ve been through it all with sleep. We tried every gentle and natural approach to helping my son get a good night’s sleep, but nothing seemed to work for too long. I wish I had known about Holistic Baby Sleep System two years ago!

Holistic Baby Sleep System

Holistic Baby Sleep System is a non-invasive method for babies and toddlers based on Chinese medicine developed by acupuncturist Jennifer Taveras, L.Ac. This technique is currently being taught at workshops at the Beth Israel Center for Health and Healing in New York City.

I love Jennifer Taveras’s background. She is both a mother and an acupuncturist, and she originally came up with the idea of using acupressure to balance the circadian rhythms of babies and toddlers after successfully using it to help with jet lag. Her family experienced their own sleep struggles after her baby was born in 2007, so she began to conduct test groups around the country. Jennifer has created an instructional DVD to bring her mission to fruition: to make the powerful applications of Chinese Medicine more accessible to the general public and empower parents to be able to use this gentle but effective medicine in their own homes.

If you’re a parent or caregiver who wants to parent gently but needs some help with your children’s sleep struggles, then this DVD is for you. Once you’ve gotten your child’s sleep rhythms optimized with this easy to learn acupressure system, you can also use it to address common complaints like teething pain, constipation, coughs, and ear infections. The system is very simple to use. You don’t need any prior knowledge of Chinese medicine, and the acupressure points are very easy to learn.

Natural energy balancing with pressure points? I think that this would be good for my son AND my husband!

Oooh, I am intrigued! My toddler sleeps pretty well these days, but my niece that I take care of has some struggles and I’ve got a baby on the way, so this sounds like a wonderful resource!

I would never have thought of acupressure for our sleep problems–I’m excited to hear of this new possibility.

I find it interesting that it can soothe babies during teething, as well.


5 Melissa September 4, 2012 at 10:25 pm

I thought it was interesting that the same pressure points used to aid sleep can also help with teething and other difficulties.

As the mother of an almost 15 month old (who has only slept a 7 hour stretch once in her life), I am intrigued by this system. I like that the system is a gentle one, as I am not comfortable with traditional sleep training methods that tell you to leave your baby to cry.

It’s non-invasive! Little E is almost 2 and doesn’t sleep well, I could use this!

I like that it can help set the bodys internal clock


10 Rebecca@Holistic September 13, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Yes, I totally agree. Gently massaging acupressure points can really help. We all feel so much better after a good nights sleep and seeing a beautiful, happy sleeping baby makes me smile.


11 brandi September 13, 2012 at 6:33 pm

love that it can soothe teething babies.


12 Jennifer M. September 14, 2012 at 11:46 pm

I like how the system utilizes acupressure to help reset the body and promote better sleeping habits for the child.


13 Sunnie September 16, 2012 at 10:40 am

I like that they donate to kids charities, and the kid wakes up less in the night.


14 Zenda September 17, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Who knew that acupuncture would be so good for babies as well. I need to find some more info about this, this would be so great for both of us!


15 Erin Laney September 17, 2012 at 2:24 pm

I’m due with my first baby in two weeks, and although I plan on co-sleeping for at least the first six months of life, I am very interested in learning about alternatives and other methods of sound sleep for baby.


16 Chris M September 17, 2012 at 10:17 pm

love the idea of reflexology and pressure points to ease pain and other ailments.


17 Claire September 17, 2012 at 11:46 pm

I like that it can help set the bodys internal clock


18 Abby September 17, 2012 at 11:48 pm

I find it interesting that the system can be used to address much more than just sleep issues; the options seem limitless!


19 Kemberley Crosswhite September 18, 2012 at 2:19 pm

i like that it decreases the times of waking during the night. my son is up several times


20 cassandra (rab pom) September 18, 2012 at 3:43 pm

I like that it increases naps and makes parents and baby healthier!


21 Sheree Algie September 18, 2012 at 7:46 pm

I like that it also improves digestion as well as improves sleep

The twelve points are easy to locate and there is ample time in each workshop to practice point location.
