Holly Flavin- A Sleep Consultant

Holly Flavin Bollinger Sleep Consultant

Hey, I’m Holly Flavin! I am so excited to join the Bollinger Sleep Consulting team as a certified sleep consultant. As a working mom of two young energetic boys, I know how important a good night’s rest is for the household.

I currently live in Denville, New Jersey with my husband, Sean, and my two young sons Caden & Callum. My father owns an automotive shop and my life’s plan was to continue growing that business with my husband, father and brother. However, that all changed once I became a mother.

Four months after having my first son Caden in 2020, I had to return to work. I was overwhelmed and struggling with my full time position and being a new parent. My son was not sleeping more than an hour at a time and I was one tired mama! After too many sleepless nights, which turned into months, I knew we needed sleep help. As a result, I started researching sleep consultants and connected with Holly Bollinger, owner of Bollinger Sleep Consulting. Through her guidance, I learned to listen and react to my son’s sleep needs, build healthy sleep habits, and encourage and maintain a calm environment. Soon enough, he was sleeping through the night like a champ!

When I had my second son in 2022, I knew we needed Holly again. Not surprisingly, she helped get my newborn on track with an individual sleep plan while still maintaining my older son’s consistent sleep schedule.

After being such a happy and well-rested client of Holly’s, I also decided I wanted to become a sleep consultant. I want to help moms and dads struggling with busy schedules and lack of sleep. I feel that I have truly found my life’s calling.

I can’t wait to help your family with a customized sleep plan so, you too, can be the best version of yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How Sleep Sense Works!

Bollinger Sleep Consulting

Why is working with Holly different than buying a DIY plan or sleep book?

Individualized support! The greatest part of working with a sleep consultant is that we work with you, your baby, and your family’s specific sleep needs and schedule. Other programs provide broad generalizations about age-appropriate sleep. In addition, they fail to provide specific instructions when troubles arise.

While working with me, Holly Bollinger, I provide real-time, 1:1 support, where I guide you through the 2-3-week program. You will have me in your back pocket to celebrate sleep successes, troubleshoot, and solve your specific sleep needs.

Is your program a version of CIO?

No. Cry-It-Out suggests putting your child to bed, walking away, and letting them scream until they fall asleep. Not only is this method uncomfortable, but it's also completely unnecessary.

Instead, I believe you can stay with your child, listen, and respond to their needs as they gradually learn to fall asleep independently. This approach allows you to bring warmth, closeness, and maintain a steady connection with your child.

Can I sleep train if my baby is still feeding at night?

Yes! Independent sleep skills are absolutely possible, even if a baby is still having a night feed or two. But, many babies naturally drop night feeds once they learn to connect sleep cycles and develop a consistent strategy for sleep. This is a win-win!

How long is your program?

Sleep development and changes take time. Many of my clients are sleeping through the night within the first few days! However, each child’s sleep needs vary and your child’s circadian rhythm takes time to normalize. Therefore, my program is two to three weeks. This allows us time to gather data, practice independent sleep skills, and create a predictable approach to sleep for your child.

As a sleep consultant, I provide education and information about independent sleep skills for all ages. Some parents are eager for sleep education prior to baby’s arrival. For others, sleep challenges don’t arise until later in their parenting journey. The most important thing is, children are ready to learn independent sleep skills when parents are motivated to change their current sleep situation

When should you start sleep training your child and is it ever too late?

The great news is it’s never too late to teach your child independent sleep skills! Children have a biological need and desire to sleep. As a result, my customized program works at any age. Most importantly, sleep training is right when parents are ready to have an independent sleeper.

What if I have multiples?

I love multiples! Honestly, it’s a little more work, but 100% doable. This is why working with a sleep consultant is so valuable. I will create an individual plan that makes sleep changes possible, even with multiples

Can I sleep train with a sibling in the house?

Yes! Each plan is customized. Together, we will create a plan which helps your child develop independent sleep skills, while still reflecting on everyone’s need for healthy, consolidated sleep

Do you offer sleep seminars or group coaching?

Yes! Please contact me or visit my Sleep Seminars pages. I run them periodically.
