My 3 and half year old toddler had been waking every night for a year (since the day her sister… was born) and I really thought there was no way of fixing her or getting a normal nights sleep. I was about to return to work and the prospect of dealing with night wakings whilst working filled me with dread and depression. I really lost hope until I spoke to Karen. She made me understand that it could all change and that I could get a normal nights sleep again. After implementing Karen’s plan, we soon saw how the little changes made a big difference and she was soon sleeping through the night with no tears or tantrums. I am so grateful to have had Karen’s help and support and it’s really made life more pleasurable and has also changed the behaviour in my little girl, who is now more pleasant to be around. We think as parents it’s normal to miss out on sleep but there is no reason to. Babies and children need help to understand how to sleep so for anyone having doubts, I urge you to try it – it’s a small price to pay for a skill that lasts a lifetime! Read more “”
At 6 months Amber was feed to sleep at night which could take up to an hour, was waking up… to 6 times a night and had to be feed back to sleep. During the day I was walking around 7 miles a day with Amber in the pram so she could nap. I was exhausted and so was Amber. I knew something had to change but I didn’t know how to go about it. There is so much information about sleep out there working out what was best for Amber seemed impossible. In the end it was my Mum who found Karen’s website. Having discussed the way forward with Karen I was bracing myself for the worst, however nether me or my husband had to get out of bed on the second night until 6 in the morning, it was unbelievable. Amber did amazingly well and picked it up very quickly despite some challenges. In the first two weeks Amber had a tummy bug, a persistent cough, her first teeth came through and she learnt to crawl but she still manage to self settle both at night and naps! 2 ½ weeks after starting Amber sleep programme we really put it to the test by going way for 4 nights over Christmas to two different places with 2 4-5hrs car journeys. I wasn’t looking forward to it. However Amber proved Karen’s programme works by sleeping through each night without too much grumbling and although most of the naps were short she still stuck to her routine! Thank you Karen for giving us the confidence to follow the sleep programme through and I would highly recommended Karen’s services. 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 are a family of 5. Two teenagers and one 15 month old. When I was pregnant with my youngest… – Mala – I read a book (an ancient hippy 1970’s one to be exact!) That said, in no uncertain terms, that babies cry in cots because they are scared. There was no way my baby was going to be scared and as the book advised, that meant that she would sleep with us, by choice from day one. We never bought a cot. In the early days this worked OK ish, it meant that I could latch her on without properly disturbing each time, which led to more sleep, hooray! Everyone was happy and also it was lovely to all wake up together, warm and cosy… As Mala grew we split up at night, with my partner (Alex) sleeping on a single bed next to Mala and I in the double. Gradually the rustling of duvets, flushing of toilets, doors gently closing and in fact pretty much anything woke her up, every night… even if I wasn’t feeding her, I was awake trying to keep still! It certainly was not much fun for the rest of the family either. The lowest point we got to was after 15 months of feeding about 12 to 20 times a night (No exaggeration!)… My exhaustion meant that I could barely function. I HAD to sleep in the daytime in order to function which meant that I was barely dressed or ready for the day by 2pm… just in time to start dreading the next night. The trouble being that because this was of our creation, this habit, I could see no way out. Every time Mala murmured, she was pacified immediately,,, she was totally used to being in with me and being breastfed most of the nigh,t how would we ever break that? And more to the point I didn’t have any energy at all for even thinking straight, let alone contemplating even less sleep whilst we sorted it out?! That was it. Life was awful and utterly unmanageable. I wont go into what this eventually evolves into within a small house, I’ll let you imagine it all! A friend who knew what we were up against passed us a copy of Karen’s advert. It stayed around for a few weeks, but reading was something I wasn’t doing anymore as it was blurry. My partner teaches and at the start of his summer holidays he encouraged me to call and at least find out what the technique was and if we stood a chance of it working. To say I was sceptical is an understatement. Mala is strong willed, intelligent and in a 15 month old habit. This would clearly work for all other children in the world, except mine! Karen explained over the phone what she thought about babies crying in cots… instead of anxiety and fright, Karen explained it as being tiredness and frustration at not knowing how to stop the feeling… needing help to gain the valuable skill of being able to fall asleep on their own… it made sense and sounded great… 2 weeks of support and then she’d be doing it on her own…. would she???! Karen came over one afternoon and spent a couple of hours with us finding out what sort of parents we are, what we wanted and what she advised we followed to the letter. After getting ready we embarked on the new routine. As that day grew closer I got more and more stressed as I ‘KNEW’ this was going to be a nightmare, and I cannot bear the sound of her crying. That’s when Alex took over. On the first night as I sobbed into making a rissotto in the kitchen with earplugs in and the radio on (?!) Alex got her to sleep, in her cot, in 9 minutes flat?! I was ready to back out the second he found it hard, but he stayed strong. That first night she woke up between 7.45pm and 8.45pm on and off and each time, she cried for less that 3 or 4 minutes. She learned so much in that first night. When she woke at 2am, and 4am she self soothed back to sleep. I slept the whole night for the first time in 15 months! It was unbelieveable. I felt I could see better, and realised just how awful it had been. The next night we did exactly the routine Karen advised again and she woke at 1am and 5am and again both times got herself back off to sleep. On the third night, with Alex still settling her, so that Mala didn’t think about breastfeeding, she slept through the night!!! And, has basically done so ever since. We have the odd blip with cold or teeth etc but either one of us can now settle her and know that we wont be required again until the morning! It’s changed our lives in so many ways. To have an evening together…. to catch up with work or household things….We went out together for the first time the other night…. she slept! We can flush the toilet, close doors, watch TV etc etc as she is in a deeper more satisfying sleep… she doesn’t wake. For Mala it’s changed her life too… she is a calmer, more observant and happy child… Hilariously, she now loves her new found sleeping independence so much that she begs not to have a story or song shouting “IN IN” to get into her cot and lie down! Do I recommend Karen?! Totally, utterly with no hesitation whatsoever! Do it, you can’t be a good parent until YOUR basic human needs are met, and sleep is one of the most important. I’m now pregnant again and Karen is going to help us get it right from day one… We can’t go through that again! 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 “”
I think I may have been one of Karen’s more challenging clients but this didn’t faze her one bit!! She… was just more determined to get it sorted. Ihad a 2.5 year old that had NEVER slept through the night and had been sleeping in the marital bed for the last 9 months. If he didn’t sleep next to me I would be up anywhere from 3-6 times a night. I also had a 10 month old that was waking a couple of times a night as well. Sleep deprived was an understatement and my use of make-up increased ten fold! This was a way of life that I only thought would resolve naturally and I just kept putting off dealing with it. I saw Karen’s article in a local magazine and felt I had nothing to lose by ringing her. Karen was warm and understanding and certainly gave me light at the end of the tunnel. She kept me focused when I wobbled – and I had a few – but was there for me every step of the way, confident and positive. Without her support and guidance there is no way I could have done this. She has gone over and above all my expectations. Have we had the double sleep through? Of course we have – every night is a double sleep through! I’m not sure why I let this drag on for so long but sleepless nights seem a distant memory now. I’ve got my life back, my husband back in the bed and I can honestly say to my friends ‘yes, my boys sleep the whole night and don’t wake once’ which I NEVER thought I’d hear myself say!! Don’t hesitate, call Karen, you won’t regret it. She’s my new best friend! Read more “”
When we first contacted Karen, we were in a pretty desperate state. Max (our third child) had woken up every 1-2… hours and never napped for more than 20-30 minutes, it was affecting everything in the house including our relationship. A friend of mine recommend Karen to me and I am forever in their debt, Max is now not only sleeping through the night but sleeps for over an hour twice a day! I never thought it was possible, I cannot thank Karen enough for all the advice, help and support that she has given. We now really enjoy bed and nap times and max does now too! Thank you so much Karen. Francesca and Kevin (A well and truly happy mummy and daddy) Read more “”
Finding Karen has been truly life changing for both my husband and I as busy working parents (with previously no… adult time) but especially for Aidan aged 18 months! Going down at bed time had never been a problem but the night waking got more and more frequent and coupled with lack of sleep resulted in Aidan joining us in bed most nights just so we could all sleep.
I had read lots of information in books and online and felt I had tried everything. I was at my wits end when I found Karen’s details and little did I know that in less 3 days Aidan would be sleeping through 7.15pm until 7.45 in his own bed!
Karen’s support and encouragement was unwavering and it gave us the confidence and determination to see it through. I would not hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone who is struggling as it has brought back to me how wonderful being a mother is now that none of us are sleep deprived.
Thank you so much and hopefully we will be in touch when there is a new addition to our family Read more “”
So before we had kids everyone use to take the mickey out of me as I was always going on about how… much I loved my sleep! I even had a badge that said I love my bed, I just love sleeping!!! So it seemed strange (and cruel) that I could produce two children that didn’t like sleeping, at all!!! Sleep had become a distant memory as we had been suffering with a four year old who has never slept very well and now a 10 month old who was following exactly the same path and we had tried everything possible so I decided enough was enough! Our nights were just extensions of the day except for the fact we were desperately trying to catch 40 winks inbetween the kids waking up! We were exhausted and had turned into parent robots! So when someone gave me the Echo with Karens interview in I could relate to so many things I decided to give her a call. Initially I hadn’t decided to go ahead with it but just wanted to see what she had to say. As soon as I spoke to Karen I felt like I had known her for years, she was friendly, understanding and gave me such confidence that she could help I immediately signed up. OK so my husband nearly collapsed when I told him I had spent money on this ‘sleep lady’ who was going to solve all our problems, but I was willing to try anything. When Karen came round for the consultation we went through all the relevant information and she came up with a plan, my little girl only cried for such a short spell of time those first few nights, the plan was easy to follow and it was a relief to have times to aim for so I felt I was doing the right thing. After just one day my 10month old was sleeping through the night! 7-7 no waking!! I am not kidding it was a miracle! She has continued to do this since that day! My eldest one is no longer waking either with advice and support from Karen both my girls are now like little sleeping beauties at night and we are no longer robots but have got our lives back! People don’t understand what sleep deprivation is like, parents of kids who sleep well think you are just overreacting or being overdramatic they don’t understand how it effects every single area of your life. What we have now is ‘normal’ to most people but for us Karen has given us our lives back! My husband and I believe Karen is worth every single penny! You just can’t put a value on your life or your sleep!! Read more “”
