My 7 month old baby girl was waking every hour and needing to be resettled every night from the day… she was born. Our lives were horrendous and my husband and I were arguing all the time and my other two children suffering as we were sooo tired all the time. Having read all the books and with two other children who always slept the night from 3 months I didnt think we were ever going to sleep believing Sienna was just a baby who wouldn’t ever be able to sleep properly. I decided to hire karen and see if she could help. If im honest I didnt think anything would work.. I am an experienced mum and didnt think there was anything karen could do that I hadnt already tried. But it did work and on night 2 of karens sleep plan Sienna, to my complete surprise slept the whole night. . She has slept every night since. Most nights 12 hours solid. I cant thank her enough for changing our lives. Miracles do indeed happen (with the right help). My only regret is I didnt hire her sooner. Thanks karen xxx Read more “”
I must admit that when a friend (aware of our desperate predicament!) passed on a leaflet about the Baby Sleep… the Night programme, I was cynical. It wasn’t that there was anything suspect about the blurb, its just that this was Mala! I felt that even if the programme might work for 99% of babies it wouldn’t for her. She is such a forceful, strong and determined little being, and I couldn’t comprehend how all of a sudden we would be able to break her out of her sixteen month habit of only falling asleep at the breast and watch her drop to sleep peacefully in a cot all by herself (?!)! I was reassured to a degree by Karen’s visit when she explained more about how it all worked. Lots of what she said made so much sense, and I could see where we’d been making mistakes. Mala had been such a poor sleeper that we would always try to make sure she was as tired as possible when going to bed, only for her to have another terrible night and leave us wondering what more we could possibly do to help her sleep. Karen explained that over-tiredness was as much of a problem as under-tiredness, and this made sense as we’d started to notice that the days where she slept the least and went to bed the latest were amongst her worst nights. It was as if the frustration caused by over-tiredness would prevent her from getting into the calm place she needed to sleep solidly. Despite the reassurances I felt from understanding more about the method and from Karen’s kind and professional manner, I still felt worried that the plan wouldn’t work for Mala. I had images of her screaming for hours on end. It felt like after sixteen months of cudgy times in our bed with breastfeeding on demand, the cot would feel like such an alien experience to her. I tried to stay positive, knowing that with another baby on the way this was something which had to happen, there wasn’t any choice. Clair wasn’t going to cope with this pregnancy without getting more sleep. I also believed that our friend had picked up on Karen’s leaflet for a reason and that we’d been led to someone who could help us at just the right time, which gave me confidence in the face of my worries. However up until the first night of the plan I couldn’t envisage how Mala would actually fall asleep on her own! In the end our transition from sleepless nights to sleep-full ones was easier than I possibly could have imagined. The first night was the most crucial one, and the hardest. As anticipated, Mala cried pretty forcibly when I first popped her into her cot, said ‘night night time Mala’ and she realised that she was being expected to fall asleep there on her own! The only thing that made this easier was reminding myself that Mala cries pretty forcibly about other things sometimes that there isn’t any choice about, like when she wants the keys when we’re driving the car and obviously there is no way to give them to her! I had to keep reminding myself that training Mala to sleep by herself wasn’t an attempt to hurt her or deprive her of something but was for her own benefit as much as ours and that it was so important for her growth and development that at sixteen months she experienced solid periods of sleep. This helped me to be strong through the ten minutes she cried forcibly as you battle against your parental instincts to pick your darling up and cuddle her. Then all of a sudden the moment I could never envisage came along; she fell asleep! From this first night onwards something seemed to click with Mala and over the coming days settling time got easier and easier and her waking at night got less and less until, on the third night, a miracle happened and Mala slept for twelve hours without waking! A week before, this would’ve been something we couldn’t even of dreamed of. Since then Mala has had her odd little wobble but generally she has slept solidly for at least ten hours each night, and the months and months of sleep-deprived desperation seem far in the past! We couldn’t be more grateful to Karen for everything she has done for us. Mala learning to sleep has literally been a life-changing experience that has improved our quality of life immeasurably. Our house is a much, much calmer, happier and more productive place than it was a few months previously and Mala’s solid evening sleeping even meant we were able to get a babysitter in and have our first meal out in sixteen months! One of the things that makes the programme so effective is the structured support that Karen gives – its amazing what a difference it makes having someone there to talk to and get advice from when your in the midst of something that feels so huge, and she couldn’t have been kinder or more supportive in her role. There’s one more person I have to thank in helping to bring this massive transition about and that’s Mala! She learnt so, so quickly what was expected of her and we literally couldn’t be more proud of the way she embraced her new circumstances at exactly the moment we needed her to the most. Its now her who talks me through each step of her night time routine, saying ‘jamas, books and ‘night night’ at all the right moments! Thank you Karen and thank you Mala for giving us our lives back!! 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 “”
At 5 months old, I had reached desperation with Israel’s sleep. At best he was waking twice a night, at… worst 5 or 6. Naps were a daily battle and I had resorted to lying on our bed with him for every nap. Karen was great, she gave us the confidence to change things and by the second night he slept 9 hours straight and within just a few nights, Israel was sleeping all night…it took a while longer for me as I had gotten so used to waking up multiple times! We’re still working on naps but we’re getting there. We’re all much more rested and much happier. Read more “”
So, which method would you like to choose? Pick up, put down? Controlled crying? Bringing your son or daughter into… bed with you? A wee dram of whisky? OK, not the last one, but we had gone through the rest of the list, and the only one that ended up working consistently, allowing us and our daughter to sleep through the night, was bringing her into bed with us. Without fail. Every night. For many, many months. Oh sure, “pick up, put down” worked for a while. Even controlled crying. A week or two later, and then it was….. well, it was back into bed with us. We’ve all done it, and really, it isn’t conducive to a healthy family lifestyle. We must be failures, right? I mean what about all those perfect parents with perfect children who sleep perfectly through the night from day one? Well, do they really exist? I suspect not! If they do, they’re about as far removed from our reality as it’s possible to get. Coming into bed with us was habitual. We all got some sleep at least. This was the way to go. Until we found out that number two was due. Oh. Well, having number one in bed with us every night wasn’t going to cut it for long. By chance, one of our friends had heard about Karen and told us. Were we going to give it a try? The downside – we could be spending time and money on a technique that just wasn’t going to work with our daughter. She was unique, after all. The upside – well, let’s put it this way, with number two not far down the line, the upside to having number one managing to sleep on her own in her own bed was….. well, the upside was enormous. Even so, skepticism is hard to shake until you’ve been through any process and seen the results, and really, the results have been….. well, wow. Just wow. Number one is now consistently sleeping through the night (that took all of about four nights from starting), and getting herself to sleep without attention too (OK, that took a bit longer, but in the grand scheme of things, nothing that we now look back upon as being excessive). Even more thrilling – she wakes up in the morning happy and singing! What else could you ask for? Was the investment in time and money worth it? Absolutely. Karen and her technique get a completely unreserved recommendation. 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 “”
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 “”
“Having already had one daughter who had mastered the art of sleeping within the first two months of her life,… I was one of those smug mums who naturally assumed number two daughter would follow suit! How wrong I was. After a difficult start to life, numerous operations and hospital trips, our little girl decided that she wouldn’t waste another moment of her precious life – especially sleeping. After 11months reading numerous books, googling different websites and trying all sorts of weird and wonderful new routines, sleep still eluded us, and I contacted karen at baby sleep the night as a last resort. After a couple of hard nights getting to grips with the new routine, I felt we were finally spending more time with our heads on our own pillows than against her bedroom wall, when a chesty cold hit our household and had everyone up throughout the night. I can honestly say, without Karens constant reassuring words that with patience and consistency we would get there; giving us new tips to try and holding our hands every step of the way, we would have thrown in the towel and admitted defeat. And of course she was right – sleep no longer eludes us, our daughter not only sleep soundly at night but loves a siesta twice a day. And all this just in time for her first birthday and Christmas. Thank you Karen for the best present money could buy – a good nights sleep” Many thanks once again and have a wonderful family christmas. 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 “”
We contacted Karen in utter desperation and exhaustion, after 9 long months of our baby daughter Rose not sleeping for… more than 1-2 hours at a time. We tried everything to get our daughter to drift into the deep, restorative sleep she clearly needed night and day, but nothing would work. We were beyond tired. After a difficult start in life, including a traumatic period in hospital, Rose quickly became a highly sensitive baby and a very poor sleeper. We felt we had tried everything, and just hoped things would get better as Rose got older; that she would naturally fall into a good sleep pattern all by herself. Unfortunately they didn’t and in the end we came to realise we needed expert help. We were looking for a sleep solution that was as kind as possible to both our daughter and us. Karen reassured us that Rose’s sleep problems were completely normal, and that we had done absolutely the right thing in comforting and responding to our daughter for those long and difficult months before seeking assistance. Karen took a detailed history and helped us to understand how sleeps works and the importance of good sleep. Karen was sympathetic, supportive and non-judgemental in her approach and advice. After following the tailored sleep plan, Rose now sleeps for 11 hours in the nights, and naps for almost 2 hours during the day! The difference has been simply life-changing for all of us. Rose is thriving after finally getting her much-needed sleep and we can enjoy our lovely, happy daughter to the full. We have already recommended Karen to all our friends with children. Read more “”
