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!

My little girl had never been a great sleeper. From when she was born the only way I could get… her to sleep was to feed her to sleep every night, and every time she woke – which was many, many times each night! As for nap times, well at eight months I could count on my hands the amount of times she’d napped in her cot during the day. Every day I’d walk for miles with her in the pram to try and get her to sleep. While this was very good exercise for me, my overall health was starting to really suffer from the effects of sleep deprivation. With a husband at work most of the time and no family local to help me out I was utterly exhausted, pretty miserable and feeling desperate. The final straw came after returning from two months away in my native Australia when my daughter was 8 months old. If her sleeping wasn’t already bad enough she now had jet lag to contend with! Even when she had recovered from this she still would be waking every hour or maybe very two hrs if I was lucky during the night. I had to get up and feed her back to sleep each time and as I was breastfeeding my husband couldn’t really assist meaning that I was out of my bed numerous times each night…. On one of these night feeds while awake and scrolling through my phone desperately googling methods to help get my baby sleep I came across Karen’s website. I had read so much information already and I knew what our problem was (feed/sleep association) I was just having trouble finding methods to actually resolve this without it being too traumatic for all of us. From reading Karen’s website details and the testimonials, I came to the conclusion that her fee would be a small price to pay if it meant we would all get a good nights sleep!!! Luckily my husband agreed after some initial scepticism (even I to be honest was a bit worried that nothing would be able to work with MY high maintenance little darling) but after speaking to Karen for the first time I genuinely had hope! Karen was so helpful during the consultation and really explained the process and techniques that we were to follow, this made us feel prepared for the challenge ahead! From the very first night after the consultation I’ve not had to get out of my bed once during the night! Yes, my baby has had not one single night feed since the night before our meeting with Karen! If you’d have told me this would have happened so quickly before, even with Karen’s help I still would have found it highly dubious. Ever since my daughter has also napped in her cot twice a day. Sure, it has taken a bit of work from us but this genuinely does feel a bit like a miracle! The effects on our little family are just great and I no longer feel like a sleep deprived zombie on the brink of a breakdown! We’ve even been able to treat ourselves to a couple of nights out recently, it is just sooooo nice to not need to fret about what will happen if she wakes and how the babysitter will get her back to sleep. Having Karen’s follow up support really helped us keep on track with the plan and erased any fears that I had regarding the methods we were using. She explained the technical details so well and was always encouraging. A couple of months on and everything is still going brilliantly. Once we settle her we don’t hear a peep from our little girl until a sensible time in the morning. A childminder even got her to nap well when I went into work for a couple of days recently. We are very grateful to Karen. It really was just so useful to have someone spending the time helping us work through our baby’s sleep issues and ‘hand holding’ us through the process. Her advice and experience was just invaluable. I think a few people thought we were mad paying someone to help us with our daughters sleep issues but each evening as my husband and I relax without worrying when the next wake up will be and every time now when I catch myself thinking during the day ‘wow, I actually feel really good and not tired, how amazing’ I know that we 100% did the right thing getting help and contacting Karen. Possibly the best money we ever spent! Read more “”
When I called Karen I was feeling a bit hopeless about our sleep situation, my beautiful 15 month old daughter… Evie had been sharing my bed since around 3 months of age and had been breastfed to sleep for every bedtime and nap since she was born.. I couldn’t see how we could ever get out of that as previous attempts had proven upsetting for me and her and I had resigned myself to carrying on until she decided to get herself to sleep or wanted to go in her own bed, whenever that would be!! None of us were getting a good sleep as she would wake between 10-20 times a night and need to be immediately pacified (fed) back to sleep. As a result her appetite and moods were suffering in the day. I barely saw my other half and eldest daughter as i would go to bed with Evie and not be able to leave the room as she woke so frequently.. it was all a mess.. something needed to change!
I called Karen and she immediately she made me feel positive, her confidence told me that we were going to come out of this alive!! After speaking to her I just couldn’t wait to get started.
At the 90 min consultation I was made to feel even more at ease and confident.. Karen had put together a plan to suit us all with a routine that worked perfectly for our family.
First night was hard but even then she surprised us with how quickly she learnt.. By nights 7/8 she was sleeping 7-7.30 with one or two little shouts in the night but she was settling herself. I never ever thought she would be doing that.. I have my evenings back and my bed.. She is a different child in the day too.. So happy and she has a wonderful appetite now too. She loves her new routine and knows what’s coming next and I think she is actually beginning to enjoy going to sleep as she leans towards the cot when we sing her bedtime song 🙂
Best thing I ever did ringing Karen, she has changed our lives completely and was worth every penny! Read more “”
Our 8 month old had been a bad sleeper since the early days, with a brief spell of good sleeping… at 6 months. However, after a bout of illness we slipped into bad habits and Euan would be awake for about two hours each night and usually ended up in bed with me as it seemed to be the only way to settle him. Napping during the day was also a problem, Euan rarely slept for longer than 40mins at a time. Thanks to Karen’s plan, Euan consistently sleeps for about 12 hours a night and if he does wake up he can put himself back to sleep without our intervention. He is also napping well – for up to 1.5 hours twice a day. I was surprised about how quickly we saw improvements in Euan’s sleeping and it was such a relief to finally get a decent night’s sleep. Thank you Karen for all your help. 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 “”
“I was really struggling to get my second son to sleep through the night, I was permanently getting up in… the night to put the dummy back in, I was so worried he would wake my 4 year old I would do anything to keep him quiet. But after 7 months of sleepless nights I’d had enough, I was desperate for some sleep. I was at a loss as my first slept through from early on and I needed some help and guidance. Some friends of mine has worked with Karen in the past and recommended her. I now wished I had done it sooner. She gave me the confidence to get Rory through the night and to give up the dummy. Karen gave me a step by step instructions and Rory responded to them almost immediately. She was there on a daily basis if we had any problems or if things needed to be fine tuned. I had got to a point where I was so tired I couldn’t think for myself, I was short tempered with my husband and children and didn’t know where to turn. Karen saved me and my family, I can’t thank her enough for what she has done and couldn’t recommend her more. So if you are thinking about calling her, don’t even hesitate!” Thank you for saving me and my family.Merry Christmas 🙂 Olivia Read more “”
“Working full time, surviving on very little sleep, a cranky baby, and stress levels at an all-time high, were part… of day-to-day life in my home. There was no harmony at all, not a minute to myself, and very little time to spend with my 4 year old child, as his little brother was using up every ounce of my energy. I came across Karen’s Facebook page advertising help getting your baby to sleep, and thought what have I got to lose?! I emailed Karen, and received a prompt reply to discuss my issues in further detail.I have to admit, I had reservations about the help, advice and sleeping plan working, but from the first night I implemented the new routine I saw a massive change!! Our home is now filled with sleep filled nights as a result of this amazing advice. Friends, family and work colleagues are astounded at the results, and have asked ‘who is this magical lady’? !If you are in the same or a similar situation to me, I strongly recommend you put your trust in Karen, and follow her advice to the letter! I did it, and so can you!!” Thank you! Read more “”
‘When people found out we were having our second child with only 17 months apart many thought we were crazy!… Our confidence in our ability to cope however came partly from meeting Karen. Karen taught us how to get our 6 month old sleeping through the night and when I knew baby number two was coming along I contacted Karen for her newborn packaged. Karen armed me with all the knowledge and skills needed to get my new baby into a sleeping routine within weeks of being born. Many have commented on how content he is and I put it down to Karens wake eat play sleep routine that has us both knowing what we are doing. Our newborn is self settling and has begun to sleep through the night at 9 weeks. When we hit the inevitable milestones that will throw this off track!!! I will be contacting Karen again for her advice and support. Read more “”
At 18 months Molly had never slept through the night, waking up regularly and co sleeping with me. I decided… that it was time to implement a new routine and help Molly learn to self-settle but wanted to make sure that whatever I did I followed it through and made it as easy as possible for Molly (and me!). A friend recommended Karen and I am very grateful she did as Molly now sleeps through the night for a minimum of 12 hours. The plan made a lot of sense and Karen made sure she explained the reasons for each step which made me fully confident it would work and demonstrated the importance of consistency. I really can’t believe that now, as long as I follow my routine, I put Molly into her cot, walk out the door and before I know it she is asleep and then I don’t see her again to the morning! Thank you Karen! 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 “”
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 “”
