Are You Looking for Ways to Get Your Child to Sleep?
Does ANY of this sound familiar?
My child fights sleep, and won’t take a nap
My child wakes up at night and won’t go back to sleep
My baby needs to nurse to get to sleep, multiple times a night
Why does my baby feed all night and when do I wean night feedings?
My child only sleeps on me or when held
My toddler won’t sleep in his/her own bed
My child needs to be rocked, bounced, or taken for a drive
How do I get enough sleep with a child who won’t sleep through the night?
At Baby Sleep the Night™, we believe a baby, toddler, or child should not be waking you up again and again at night. Night waking is normal and most children wake up at night – quite frequently, actually. So do adults, but we have the ability to go back to sleep if we do.
A child sleep consultant’s job is to help you teach your little one to go back to sleep when they do wake up at night. When a child can resettle independently, they will only wake you up if they are genuinely in distress. If they do wake up, they will learn to go back to sleep without tears or fuss. This way, they get vital, nourishing deep sleep.
Sleep is a necessity for the child’s health (and the parents’!) and if they don’t get enough of it, it can affect them and you quite adversely.
In fact, mums whose babies don’t sleep are 3 times more likely to develop post-partum depression!
Being a mother myself, I sat through many, many nights wondering how to get my children to sleep. After one particularly traumatic incident caused by my lack of sleep, where I was such a walking zombie that I almost crashed my car with my three children in it, I sought help.
Now I help others, by training baby and child sleep consultants. These sleep specialists are well versed in the Baby Sleep the Night™ philosophy. They understand all about sleep regressions, self-soothing, night feed weaning, and more. If you’ve not slept in a long time because of your child, they will find the right way to get your child to sleep… the whole night!

Baby Sleep Tips
Sometimes all you need is a little help to point you in the right direction. My blog offers advice and information about healthy sleep habits.
You don’t have to take my word for it. Hear from the mouths of those who’ve been there and have benefited from our Gentle Sleep Plan.
Thanks to Karen and her plan our 9 month old daughter now consistently sleeps 11 and a half /12 hours… night and has 2 decent length naps in the day. We sought Karen’s advise after all being sleep deprived and after realising that we were falling into bad habits at bedtime and nap time. We could be in and out of her room up to 6 times at night and sometimes trying to settle her for up to 2 hours in the middle of night. In sheer desperation and exhaustion I started bringing her into our bed, which I knew I didn’t want to do but felt I had no other option. After religiously following Karen’s sleeping plan Amelie slept through the night from day 2. We couldn’t believe how quickly it worked for Amelie. We can’t thank Karen enough!! Read more “”
My wife sought out and registered us for the course following a recommendation on social media. I was indifferent to… the idea at first but was absolutely prepared to put my full effort into it as it would have been a waste of money not to fully commit to the course, and I wanted to get the most out of it and also solve my sons sleeping problems. The facetime interview enabled us to lay out Alex’s issues in fine detail, whilst also building a rapport with Karen. She was able to lay out the programme that we would be required to follow over the subsequent days and discuss the details of it. It was therefore possible for her to tailor the programme to our particular situation. Subsequently we received the supporting course paperwork to be read before and during the programme. This reinforced in my mind what we had discussed in the online chat. The crib sheet proved particularly useful thereafter and is still sitting on the dresser in Alex’s room to refer to. Although not proposed on the course, me and my wife took the opportunity to walk through the process of the new routine whilst Alex was in playgroup. In this sort of dress rehearsal, we literally walked through the new routine from bathtime through to bedtime, just to make sure we would have everything we needed to hand, that we had the ergonomics sorted out, the lighting correct, and to confirm we were both in agreement as to how things would play out and how we respond to situations. I think this helped greatly as we it got the first night off to a good start with no disorganisation. I found that a small set of yellow ear plugs were a great help on the first few nights since crying was inevitable. Having them in, I didn’t completely block his crying out to and I didn’t want to, but it took the edge, preventing his crying from getting the better of my instincts to see to him. I also was able to message my wife who was downstairs with the baby monitor and this gave us mutual support and feedback. I had belief in the outcome of the course by the end of the online chat with Karen. Her estimates of how it would play out were surprisingly accurate. Needless to say in my opinion the course has been a complete success and was worth every penny. Our lives have already improved significantly in the last two weeks. My advice to other parents who do this is for both parents to commit to the programme and then stick to it ruthlessly. Read more “”
‘I was out for my third rainy walk of the day with the pram trying to get my 5 month… old son Callum to sleep and I bumped into another mum with her pram trying to do the same thing, only her little one was 10 months old, I thought enoughs enough I don’t want to still be doing this is 5 months time. I was also breastfeeding him to sleep at night and doing the same thing when he woke, it was the only way I knew for getting him back to sleep. I was thoroughly confused looking on the internet for solutions and needed a step by step plan to follow. I contacted Karen and she gave me just that, a bespoke plan as well as very helpful advice and support along the way. The first couple of days were a bit rocky, but on thethird night he slept through the night. He is now also taking 3 naps a day in his cot. We would not hesitate in recommending Karen, and I am very glad she followed her calling to become a sleep consultant. Thank you very much, will be back when we have hopefully have another baby and get it right from the start’. Kindest regards Alison x Read more “”
I recently wrote a rather desperate email to the Baby Sleep the Night Team entitled ‘Edie the untrainable’ and within… 48hrs Gemma had completely disproved my theory about our daughter. After an excruciating 3 months meticulously following the plan of another sleep trainer we turned to Karen & Gemma based on a few of our friends recommends. From the very first night 7pm came and went without event or the screaming/self combustion we’d become accustomed to. I’m still not 100% sure what wizardry has gone on but we are so hugely appreciative of all your wise words, the incredible unwavering support and ultimately our happy sleeping baby! We will sing your praise from the roof tops or to anyone who will listen forever more.
Thank you, thank you. Read more “”
What can we say? After months of sleep deprivation and a toddler, who had just turned two, slowly turning into a… vampire we finally decided enough was enough and after a recommendation enlisted the help of Karen at Baby Sleep The Night. After a friendly chat and then a thorough consultation a plan was devised. With a few simple and manageable changes with Karen guiding us all the way this new plan was put in place.On the first night we were not woken up and Theo no longer had his dummy. A fluke…surely? Well we are now nearly two months on and we have one very happy little boy who now loves his sleep – nearly as much as Mummy and Daddy do now. Thank you so much Karen. The difference you have made to our family life is amazing. I just wish we had asked for your help sooner Read more “”
THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving me my SLEEP back as well as my life. Before i meet karen… i was up and down most of the night and suriving on a few hours sleep, which was hard especially when it was affecting my work as well as my home life and my general health. Within just a few days of meeting karen and sticking to my bedtime routine charlie my 20month old son had started to sleep through the night again as well as having a two and half hour sleep in the afternoon giving me time to myself again. Thank you once again. Read more “”
This sleep programme is amazing; we spent a few very uncomfortable, sleep deprived months wondering why our daughter would wake… very couple of hours screaming, would only settle in our arms and what we should do about it. Following one particularly rough night with her, we saw Karen’s article in our local newspaper and decided to give her a try. Miraculously, within four nights of following her bespoke sleep plan our daughter was sleeping well through the night and was more cheerful during the day. You are supported through the process and given advice on how to deal with situations that arise. This has had a hugely positive effect on Mum and Dad as they have re-discovered sleep too. THANK YOU SO MUCH KAREN, YOU ARE A LIFE SAVER. 🙂 🙂 A very well rested Saffer family – Winterbourne Dauncey, Salisbury Read more “”
When we contacted Karen, we were absolutely desperately sleep deprived. Benedict, at 9 months, had gone from bad to worse… in the sleep department. He was now waking up every 40 minutes to an hour throughout the night and my husband and I were taking it in turns to sleep on a mattress in his nursery. We had to rock him back to sleep every time he woke and even that didn’t always work. Sometimes it took an hour or two to get him back to sleep. Then there was always the dreaded transfer back into his cot, which would invariably wake him.His naps were getting shorter and shorter as well- usually only 25 minutes or so. When I spoke to Karen I was reassured by her kindness and confidence of solving the problem. We were very worried about just leaving Benedict to cry and Karen was very reassuring that we wouldn’t have to do anything we weren’t comfortable with. Karen’s sleep plan is incredible. It was hard work, but the benefits are huge- actually life changing for us. Benedict now sleeps through the night, every night. We put him down in his cot at night, leave the room, and 5 minutes later he is asleep. No crying, no fuss. He now regularly naps for 1,5 hours, again typically falling asleep 5-10 minutes after putting him in his cot. We finally have our lives back and even went for our first meal out together- unthinkable just a few weeks ago!Thank you Karen for transforming our lives and giving our baby the sleep he deserves. In my husband’s own words- the best money we’ve ever spent! Read more “”
My son had always been a good sleeper and had no trouble going to bed. Suddenly at around 18 months… he started waking in the night and not wanting to be left alone and he started early rising. We managed to pretty much overcome the night waking but the early rising became a daily thing with 5.15am the norm! On top of this, he refused to nap during the day when at home so we were stuck in a rut with a tired child and tired parents. With a brand new addition to the family and the increased lack of sleep that brings too, we decided enough was enough and I called Karen. My only reservation was that I did not want to pay to be told things I already know or have read in books and I hoped Karen would have some fairy dust up her sleeve…She did. Just after I convinced my husband to let us spend the money on Karen’s services, we had such a rough night that he said he’d pay double! I think he nearly hugged her when he answered the door to her. We had the complete solution package and the newborn package for our two children. We expected it to be hard at first but we saw a massive improvement on our very first night of sleep training our toddler. Over the two weeks of training we have turned things around and he is now sleeping through to more like 7am with no night waking and still going to bed with no problems. We have also learnt valuable skills to help the newborn who is also sleeping through already at just 6 weeks. The best thing about hiring Karen is that she is there for you the whole way through the process. She tailors the training to your family’s needs and reminds and advises you if you come unstuck and she makes sure you see it through. You can’t get that from any book. This service is well worth every penny and I feel we will have years of benefit from it. I highly recommend it. Read more “”
