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.

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 “”
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 “”
“Working full time, surviving on very little sleep, a cranky baby, and stress levels at an all-time high, were part… of day-to-day life in my home. There was no harmony at all, not a minute to myself, and very little time to spend with my 4 year old child, as his little brother was using up every ounce of my energy. I came across Karen’s Facebook page advertising help getting your baby to sleep, and thought what have I got to lose?! I emailed Karen, and received a prompt reply to discuss my issues in further detail.I have to admit, I had reservations about the help, advice and sleeping plan working, but from the first night I implemented the new routine I saw a massive change!! Our home is now filled with sleep filled nights as a result of this amazing advice. Friends, family and work colleagues are astounded at the results, and have asked ‘who is this magical lady’? !If you are in the same or a similar situation to me, I strongly recommend you put your trust in Karen, and follow her advice to the letter! I did it, and so can you!!” Thank you! 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 “”
We first called on Karen when I was pregnant, to help get our older son James sleeping independently in his… own bed in plenty of time for the arrival of his baby brother. This has worked like a dream and set us up really well for the first few weeks of expected sleep disturbance with the new baby, Alex. However, thanks to the advice Karen gave us on managing day and night sleep with a new baby, the sleep disturbance was really kept to a minimum, and by 4 weeks old Alex was only waking for one night feed. When we started to have problems with short daytime naps a few months in, which was leading to more night waking, we called on Karen again for some help tweaking our day and night routines. This has worked so well. Alex is sleeping through the night at six months old, and sleeping really well in the day which gives me some time to get things done or have a rest. I am sure the help we have had from Karen has helped prevent a recurrence of the post-natal depression I had with James which had a lot to do with being exhausted and not knowing how to change things. Karen has given us a proven toolkit to work through problems as they arise. The very reasonable cost has been a small amount to pay for the peace of mind it has brought us. 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 “”
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 “”
We have struggled with poor sleeping patterns for a very long time with our 3 year old – almost since… he was born. At times, the sleep deprivation and bedtime behaviour was almost insufferable and everyone was affected. We decided that enough was enough and felt that there must be something we could do, but we felt utterly powerless, as everything we had read and tried to date had failed. However, we came across Karen through a friend and within a week of starting the programme, we experienced a massive change in sleeping behaviour – a positive change that is maintained three weeks later and has now become the norm.
At a time when we were so tired and could not see the wood for the trees, Karen disected the route causes of the problem and constructed a programme that was the sum of many small changes. It was firm but fair, initially a challenge (mainly a psychological one as parents) as it required a concerted and consistent change of behaviour from us in order to bring about the required changes for our three year old, but it worked really well.
I cannot say how much better we both feel and as a dad, I feel my relationship with my youngest has improved massively as we now both have so much more energy to play and learn together thanks to so much more sleep. This programme and approach has made such a positive impact, it’s hard to say how much. I cannot recommend Karen highly enough – it has made the world of difference, thank you! Read more “”
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 “”
At 18 months Molly had never slept through the night, waking up regularly and co sleeping with me. I decided… that it was time to implement a new routine and help Molly learn to self-settle but wanted to make sure that whatever I did I followed it through and made it as easy as possible for Molly (and me!). A friend recommended Karen and I am very grateful she did as Molly now sleeps through the night for a minimum of 12 hours. The plan made a lot of sense and Karen made sure she explained the reasons for each step which made me fully confident it would work and demonstrated the importance of consistency. I really can’t believe that now, as long as I follow my routine, I put Molly into her cot, walk out the door and before I know it she is asleep and then I don’t see her again to the morning! Thank you Karen! Read more “”
