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.
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 “”
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 “”
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 “”
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 “”
Dear Karen, I just wanted to thank you for all your kindness towards me, I really couldn’t have sorted out… Zac’s sleep without your support, encouragement and positivity.Its amazing, now I have time to myself of an evening and I am looking forward to sharing them with my husband! Thanks again, I could never have done it without you! Lots of love Kay xxx Read more “”
In a desperate sleep deprived state late one night I stumbled across babysleepthenight.com. I remember reading through all the testimonials… from happy clients thinking to myself ‘this sounds too good to be true’ and ‘this will never work for us.’ Well if that is you right now, have faith and put your trust in Karen – she’s amazing and she very quickly solved our 13 month olds sleep problems. Our little boy had not been sleeping well for months, it was not unusual for him to wake 6+ times a night and his naps were all over the place. It would take us ages to get him off to sleep and every time he woke he’d need us to help him back to sleep. We followed Karen’s personalised plan exactly to the letter and now we have a very happy well rested little boy. He sleeps from 7pm to 7 -7.30am and naps for 1.5 – 2hrs every day. It’s amazing when you consider that in one week he learnt to put himself to sleep AND to sleep all night. All this while transitioning from two naps to one! On a personal note, I have so much more energy and enthusiasm now. I’ve gone from struggling to just get through the day to really looking forward to all the fun things we can do together. Seriously money well spent, it’s transformed our lives! Thankyou so much, you’ll never know how much of a positive impact you’ve had on our lives. All the very best, Michelle, Arps and Eashan x Read more “”
Working with Karen has been life changing and I cannot recommend it enough. Our little boy was 16 months old… and had never slept for more than 3-4 hours without needing us. Before starting work with Karen I had spent the previous month sleeping on the floor next to his cot which at 3 months pregnant with our second baby and working full time was pushing me to the limit. Zach had suffered with severe silent reflux for his first year and the management of his treatment (as well as his medication) resulted in very poor sleep habits – e.g. Dummy, night feeds, holding upright 20mins post feeding. Once he was better we had tried many things ourselves including controlled crying which just led to a cot phobia. Having spoken with Karen I felt confident she could help although couldn’t quite believe we could fix Zach’s sleeping in just 2 weeks. Before starting the first night we were very nervous and steeled ourselves for a very long night. It wasn’t easy but he accepted the changes much better and faster than we ever dreamt he could and unbelievably on the 2nd night he slept through for the first time ever and has continued to do so!!! 3 weeks on I still have to pinch myself every morning that we now have a ‘sleeper’.

Strength, determination and conviction that you’re doing the right thing are qualities that dwindle when in the depths of sleep… deprivation! After 7months of existing on around 2-3 hrs sleep a night, desperation had set in to find a way of helping our gorgeous little girl to sleep soundly. When Karen introduced us to the clarity, simplicity and step by step approach of her plan, I knew this was exactly what I needed! With Karen’s unfaltering guidance and support, in a matter of days we were on our way to sleep like we’d never before experienced! The results really were astonishing and within a week our little girl had gone from not sleeping for more than an hour at a time to sleeping a straight 10 hours. Success, blissful nights and a much healthier, happier household! Read more “”
For the first 8 months of Alice’s life, Jon and I adopted a rather laid back approach to parenting. Alice… wasn’t in any form of routine, apart from the one which she naturally created herself, and I spent my days and nights breastfeeding her to sleep. After months of sleepless nights (getting up 3 times a night was considered a good night – quite often I was up every 45 minutes), I finally reached a level of exhaustion that I didn’t know existed, and we decided that for my sanity, something had to be done. I stumbled across Karen purely by coincidence whilst I was on a baby-based forum one night. Another lady was talking about how Karen had changed their lives in a matter of days so I picked up the phone first thing the following morning to talk to Karen and see if she could help us. And help us she did! By following the plan that Karen made for Alice, we saw our little girl transform from waking every 45 minutes, to sleeping 11 hours in a row on night 2 of the plan! Alice has been following the plan for almost two weeks now and no longer needs us to send her to sleep. She settles down for the night all by herself, sleeps 11-12 hours, and on the occasions that she has woken up, resettles herself within minutes. The transformation is incredible and Alice is much happier, as are mummy and daddy!Karen truly is a miracle worker and we can never thank her enough for putting happiness (and sleep!) back in our home. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone who is suffering from sleepless nights and I am already planning on talking to Karen again when we have another baby so we get it right from the very start next time – after we have caught up on our sleep of course! Karen, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 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 “”
