How Do Sleep Therapists Help My Baby Sleep?
Sleep therapists study child sleep behaviour and the best practises to ensure that a child imbibes good sleep habits. This helps children go to sleep consistently at night. They even self-soothe themselves back to sleep if they do wake up in the middle of the night, removing the need for parents to get up every time their child wakes up.
Parents tend to suffer through sleepless nights when their baby, child, or toddler fights sleep. They feel a child having sleep problems is a rite of passage, or that asking for help to get a child to sleep is a sign of failing as a parent.
I want you to know that this is absolutely not true!
Parents are not given enough information about something as vitally important as sleep. I’ve even heard medical professionals and health visitors give advice on the subject that is shockingly bad, and in many cases, makes things worse.
There are so many parents who have had children who would scream when put in cots. Others had exhausted babies fight sleep, or need feeding throughout the night, or babies who would only sleep when held… ALL night long.
Some parents even had children who would wake up multiple times a night. I’d know… I was one of them!
So What Does a Child Sleep Consultant Do?
A sleep consultant helps take all the trial and guesswork out of getting your child to sleep. They will design a plan for your child, using your knowledge about your baby, that you are comfortable implementing. This plan will be tailored to your child, but based on the Baby Sleep the Night™ philosophy.
I, Karen Bramall, designed the Baby Sleep the Night™ sleep plan for parents like me and you get our child to sleep really well through the night and take great naps too. It begins with a no-obligation free 15-minute consultation, for them to assess your child’s individual situation, explain how they can help you and for you to see if they’re the right fit for you. This can be face-to-face, or over the phone, Skype, FaceTime, or WhatsApp, so it really doesn’t matter where in the world you are! You have nothing to lose but 15 minutes of your time, and it will most likely be the best free 15 minutes you ever spend!
Should you decide to go ahead with working with the consultant, you would then complete a detailed questionnaire and book in a further 90-minute session.
This in-depth consultation is designed to get every detail of your child’s sleep habits. It is also used to identify why your child is fighting sleep. They will then use this information to fine-tune the sleep plan for your child and to teach you exactly how to implement it successfully.
Your child sleep consultant will then be there to answer every question that comes to mind. They will often tweak the plan as necessary to suit your child’s needs, which regularly change as their sleep skills improve. It can often be like walking a tight rope due to these changes and is where so many parents go wrong without professional help. However, your child sleep consultant will be there to and guide you through the detailed and gentle sleep training plan, step by step!
The beauty of having a network of self-employed, independent child sleep consultants is that there’s someone available to help you with almost immediate availability.
Each and every one of these Baby Sleep the Night™-certified consultants has undergone an extensive training and mentoring programme where I’ve taught them personally. They are fully certified to give you all the confidence and tools necessary to teach your child to sleep through the night and take great naps too!
Having a dedicated sleep professional on hand is absolutely invaluable! Almost every parent I’ve ever worked with has told me I’m a miracle worker and that it’s the best money they ever spent!
Is There a Child Sleep Consultant Near Me?
All of the Baby Sleep The Night™ certified consultants offer their services remotely, with the power of the Internet, it really is like being in the same room! Some people still prefer Face to Face so if you particularly want your dedicated sleep therapist to meet you in person, you can choose a sleep consultant near you. If you don’t find one very close to you, don’t worry. Most of these child sleep consultants will be happy to travel. Call them to see if that can be arranged!
Consultations are just as effective when done remotely as they are face to face, so don’t worry if there’s not a consultant near you.

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 “”
I just want to say thank you for helping our 15 month old sleep through the night. He had been… waking up for his bottle every three hours or so for as long as I can remember. Within three days of starting your programme he was sleeping through the night. One week in and now it is only me that wakes up at silly o’clock in the morning. It looks like it is going to take me longer to adjust than him! 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 “”
Thank you so much for helping us Karen! Madison had not really slept since she was 4.5 months old, regularly… waking 4-5 times a night (sometimes more! ) and after months of sleepless nights, having exhausted most options we decided to bite the bullet and ask for help. This was the best decision we made . Madison has been sleeping 12/13 hours a night since Karen put together a plan for us (this started from night 2 of implementing the plan and we are now 3 weeks in!) She is dummy free and has now learnt to self soothe. We couldn’t be happier! 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’.

Working with Karen has been one of the best investments that we’ve ever made! The whole process, from the initial 1.5hour consultation,… to the daily update call or e-mail and the final hand off after 2 weeks was so easy and stress free. The techniques and changes that we applied to our 13 month old sons bedtime routine were simple and, after the initial nervousness of putting our boy down in his cot awake (for the first time ever!), we quickly realised that the plan that Karen had put together was one that we, as a family, could actually work to. Within just a few nights our son was sleeping 10-11 hours with minimal wake ups. With Karen’s experience giving us confidence we were able to stick to her advice and help our son learn how to put himself back to sleep on his own when he woke in the night. After just one week he was sleeping through the night for 11 hours and resettling himself when he woke up. A revelation after more than a year of considerably broken sleep! 2 months on and we are still amazed (and so grateful) that our son consistently sleeps 11.5-12.5 hours a night. We have travelled away from home on a number of occasions over this time and not even this throws our son off sleeping through. We are all so much more rested and ultimately happier! I would recommend Karen to anyone experiencing sleep issues with their little one…life really is too short to struggle on through sleepless nights and the fix really can be incredibly quick and easy with Karen’s help. Karen – we thank you and salute you! Read more “”
I cant recommend Karen enough even my husband agrees it’s the best money we have ever spent. Joel is my… third child and hadn’t slept from day 1. As a newborn he would be awake for hours at a time, 9 months down the line he was waking repeatedly all evening and all through the night and the only way he would settle was if I fed him. My other two hadn’t been great sleepers and I couldn’t see how it was ever going to get better. On night 2 of Karen’s sleep plan Joel slept through and it really was so easy I almost felt cheated that it wasn’t a bit harder, had I really gone without sleep and looked after three children for 9 months and within two nights he was sleeping? I wish I had known about Karen 6 years ago when my daughter was born I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. 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 “”
“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 “”
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 “”
