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!

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.
“We contacted Karen in desperation! Our 3 year old has never been a great sleeper, but the last 6 months had… been really hard, not actually understanding why he was waking and how we could help him get back to sleep. We tried everything, and it left us all completely shattered everyday!! His behaviour during the day became difficult, probably due to the fact he was so tired too. So we made one of the most life changing phone calls, to Karen. After meeting Karen I immediately started to feel more positive, we put her plan into action and started to notice a difference after 4 days, and now 3 weeks later we have our lives back. He is sleeping through the night and going to bed on time and without any fuss. I cannot thank Karen enough, the system works and I no longer go to bed each night full of anxiety! Thank you so much Karen!!” 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 “”
After 16 months of pretty much no sleep, myself and my husband decided we couldn’t go on like this. Our… 16 month old little boy was an awful sleeper. Some nights waking every 45 minutes, most nights just screaming.
After trying everything we could, we decided we needed professional help. My mother in law found an article about parents struggling with their babies not sleeping, so I decided to call Karen and I am so glad I did.
After meeting Karen who is fantastic and going through a plan suitable for Max it was time to start. I was dreading it at first but things couldn’t get any worse. The first few days were hard but were so worth it, it’s been 2 weeks now and Max has been sleeping through for a few days now which is amazing. Everything about nap and bedtime has completely changed for the better.
I would 100% recommend Karen to anyone struggling, not only is she amazing at her job she’s a lovely lady too. Read more “”
I waited until my son was nearly a year old before contacting Karen as his sleeping habits were erratic –… we’d have a mix of good and bad nights and I kept thinking it would sort itself out. But around the year mark the lack of consistent sleep was really starting to take its toll – with early morning wakings standard practice (anywhere between 4:30 and 5:30) and usually some form of night time waking too. I wish we hadn’t waited!Karen put together a plan tailored to my son’s needs and since starting it he is sleeping between 11-12 hours a night and is able to self settle on waking. Naps are improving too, and I’m sure we’ll get the consistency there in time too. It’s not always easy but Karen has been on hand to provide advice every step of the way to support us on the journey to sleeping the night. Thank you for all your help Read more “”
We were at breaking point when we contacted Karen for help with our beautiful twins. They were never good day… time nappers but initially they only woke once in the night to feed and then would go back to sleep until 6.30 -7am. However, after one of the twins became poorly this changed and between them they were waking nearly every hour. We were exhausted and so were our babies, which then impacted on their day and my ability to enjoy my time with them. When we spoke to Karen she was so positive and provided a sleeping program that was so individually tailored to our babies needs and our parenting style that it inspired confidence in our ability to help our babies learn how to sleep through the night and nap for longer. One of the things that make the program so effective is the regular contact and support that Karen gives, it is invaluable to have someone to talk to who is so positive and kind when you are feeling so low and sleep deprived. Now my lovely twins are sleeping longer at nap time and throughout the night and they are developing both emotionally and developmentally in leaps and bounds as they are no longer exhausted. We cannot thank Karen enough for the difference it has made not only to our lives but to our babies lives and we would recommend her to anyone who has children with sleep problems. 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 contacted Karen on a whim after reading on the internet from various sites what seemed like the 100th tip… to get my 11 month old daughter to sleep through the night and have a nap through the day! To be honest my husband wasn’t convinced that contacting Karen was the best way as he had convinced himself that she would never sleep through! However as I was due to return to work I was desperate for things to change. After speaking with Karen at great length and completing the questionnaire on Ruby’s sleep habits Karen assured me there was light at the end of the tunnel and that she was confident we could turn things around. Of course it was hard to start with but by the second night Ruby had surprised both me and my husband by sleeping through the night! The daytime naps even started to fall in place! You wouldn’t believe the difference a full nights uninterrupted sleep can do! We have both felt like we have more energy and Ruby is also not as cranky through the day! Karen was very supportive throughout the process even when I buckled at the start and picked her out of her cot for a cuddle! I only wish I had contacted Karen earlier! We have missed out on so much valuable sleeping time! But now I can say I feel more confident in being able to return to work knowing that we have all had a decent nights sleep! Read more “”
It’s amazing what you put up with when 2 weeks with Karen can completely change yours and your child’s life. … Jack would come and visit us 4 or 5 times a night, ask to sleep in our bed or we would end up sleeping on the floor in his room. We kept thinking it was just a phase and it would get better. It didn’t so we asked Karen for help. We had an informal consult when we discovered what methods Karen used. One thing we didn’t want to do was try things that we had tried before and hadn’t worked. Karen then spent 2 hours with us via face time discovering what type of child Jack was, what our routines were and then sent us a detailed plan of what to do as well as talking us through the plan. I’m not denying things changed in a day and that it was easy! It took a lot of hard work from us but Karen made us see it was working and was there with positive words and back up when we needed it. Jack now sleeps 12 hours a night, goes to bed easily and we have seen such a developmental leap in conversation which I do think is due to sleeping better. He’s really happy, as are we that we have achieved a great balance for work, rest and play! My husband and I even managed a night out after 3 weeks of the plan which we hadn’t achieved in a year! Thank you Karen! Read more “”
Truly Amazing! Life changing! I never believed it would work for my son….until I tried it. From waking EIGHT times… a night for a year and reliant on motion or feeding to now sleeping 11 hours without waking! Everyone is happier and we even have the energy to go and join in with fun activities. Karen, so encouraging, positive, supportive and wise, she WILL help you succeed. I truly can’t thank her enough and could never have done it without her – Worth every penny! Sleep tight! Read more “”
