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.

Why we didn’t do this earlier, goodness knows!! After 21 months of disturbed sleep with my son waking at least… twice a night, we made the call to Karen. I knew a lot of the mistakes we were making, I just wasn’t sure how to reverse them, we had tried before but often gave in or he would be unwell and we would be back to square one. After a short conversation with Karen on the phone, she gave me the confidence to realise we could sort this once and for all. We completed a detailed questionnaire for Karen then met formally to discuss going forward. It was very relaxed with no ‘tuts’ of I can’t believe you have been doing that. She gave us a straight forward plan and target date to start. After only 3 nights my son was sleeping through the night and within a week he was having proper afternoon naps. He has been sleeping ever since, slight wavering when he got croup but with just a little adaption during him being ill, we have carried on as before following the new routine with total success Read more “”
My twins Olli and Jessi are nearly three with my son having speech and language difficulties.
I contacted Karen at… the end of my tether, lacking in ideas and
suffering from sleep deprivation.
Jessi was not settling at night running me ragged. I was up and down the stairs for hours to a girl who would not stay in her bed and if she did she would cry and scream for hours..
Both twins were waking several times in the night with Olli coming into my room and refusing to return to his bed…
Both were often awake at 4.30/ 5am……… Karen has been incredibly supportive, professional and very
honest and always quick to explain the reasons for the structured
programme we have introduced….
Has the past three weeks been easy…. no….. especially having two
toddlers one with special needs…. but we have stuck with the programme and three weeks on I am downstairs relaxing by 1830 every evening with my twins settled and sending them selves to sleep with their doors open….I have to say I never thought I would be where I am today…! Karen is a life saver, she can solve your problems and get you relaxing for the evening….. Thank you Karen…. I feel as if you have been sitting on my shoulder for the past 3 weeks and I will
miss you….and all your support……. 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 “”
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 “”
I just thought I would email to let you know how brilliantly Ivy (now 15 months old) is sleeping. We… followed your newborn plan and she started sleeping pretty well fairly early on. She had a wobble at around 5 months old and I did controlled crying 1 night and since then we very rarely have to go in to her room during the night unless teething etc. She absolutely loves her sleep and even though she can’t talk she signs BED when she wants to go to bed and has been known on days she has been at nursery to ask to go to bed at 445pm! It hasn’t meant she has woken stupidly early the next day and in fact she slept until her normal time. Her normal bedtime is now around 1830, she wakes around 0600-0630 most mornings but if we leave her alone she normally Resettles until around 8am, sometimes later. We are much better rested parents and have recommended you to numerous other friends expecting or who have children with sleep Issues. Thank you ever so much for all your help with Adam and Ivy.

“We contacted Karen in desperation! Our 3 year old has never been a great sleeper, but the last 6 months had… been really hard, not actually understanding why he was waking and how we could help him get back to sleep. We tried everything, and it left us all completely shattered everyday!! His behaviour during the day became difficult, probably due to the fact he was so tired too. So we made one of the most life changing phone calls, to Karen. After meeting Karen I immediately started to feel more positive, we put her plan into action and started to notice a difference after 4 days, and now 3 weeks later we have our lives back. He is sleeping through the night and going to bed on time and without any fuss. I cannot thank Karen enough, the system works and I no longer go to bed each night full of anxiety! Thank you so much Karen!!” Read more “”
Massive thanks to Karen at Babysleepthenight, our lives have been changed dramatically since our bundle of daytime joy has become… a bundle of nighttime joy too!
We enlisted Karens help after many failed attempts at getting out little one to sleep! (12 months of frequent wakings plays havoc!) We started on the eve of her first birthday and I can honestly say within 3 nights our lives were transformed! Within 2 weeks our little girl was sleeping 11 hours a night!
We used Karens time change advice when the clocks changed and took her advice on our first holiday, with our little one still managing 10-11 hours!
Now 6 months on we still stay true to the advice and get 11, sometimes even 12 hours of nighttime joy!
Thanks Karen!! 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 didn’t start this process entirely convinced it would work but I knew we had to try something. I couldn’t keep up… feeding every hour and I wanted my husband to move back into our bed after 3 months of sleeping apart. Nothing else we had tried had worked so we both decided to put our all into this training. On the first night, my husband sat with our son as he had his first ever attempt of falling asleep by himself. I couldn’t stay in the house and went for a walk instead and by the time I came back he was asleep. I only had to feed him once that night and from the second night on he slept straight through! I couldn’t believe it! My baby obviously was ready to sleep for longer periods but it was actually me stopping him from doing it by responding to every noise he made. This training has been the best thing we could have done for our son and it has transformed our family. Karen’s expert advice, clear explanation and encouragement means that my husband and I now better understand our baby’s needs and can read his tired signs, our son is a well rested and happier baby, and we are getting the sleep we so desperately needed at long last! I would recommend this to anyone. Read more “”
Hello, my name is Kelly. If you’d have said to me six months ago I would be sleeping for more… than two to three hours in a row at night and more than five hours in total, I would have never have believed it! Since the night we brought our baby Harry home he has not slept through a single night.. Until now! After twenty one months of sleep deprivation we were at our wits end mentally and physically. When a friend recommended us to Karen, I was ready to get help. It had been suggested to me in the past but I think like many parents I hoped things would get better on their own and felt that if we just hung in there we could sit it out until then! I must admit that as much as I wanted to put my faith in this stranger to solving all our night time traumas, I was somewhat dubious as to how she was going to achieve this. After all, many stories I heard were of babies or toddlers not wanting to go to bed and having to be asleep before being put into their cots etc. Harry rarely made a fuss about actually going to bed, his problem was the million times through the night when he would wake up! I couldn’t understand how anyone could stop that. My doubts were outweighed though by my desperation for sleep! Working with Karen was very interesting. She had been where we were now and it helped knowing she understood. Most of the changes we were advised to make were so subtle that my doubts about how they would make a difference started to worry me.After the first two nights it was clear that these changes were extremely noticeable to Harry! Karen had always said from the start that the first few nights would be the hardest and she wasn’t wrong! Also I wasn’t expecting for the changes we had been advised to make in the daytime to be as challenging as they were also. Throughout it all though Karen was there and we followed her instruction to the letter. Well to cut a long story short! I am still waiting for this amazing transformation to Harrys sleep pattern to end and for me and my other half to fall back into our nights of cat naps and crying (apply that to whoever you wish)!! to reinstate itself! I just can’t believe that pretty much from day four of working with Karen our boy has slept all night every night without us getting up to him. I still do not know how this happened! But it did and all I can say if you are reading this through bleary eyes after yet another sleepless night when that first little murmur from their cot sets your adrenalin racing and your palms sweating is, get in touch with this lady! We are still working on the finer points of Harry’s routine but everything takes time to perfect and obviously when he was poorly with a cold over Christmas things were harder, but we have the tools now to get back on track when we need to. All I can say is that it worked! Don’t wait a single day more! Happy, restful new year! Read more “”
