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.

“I was really struggling to get my second son to sleep through the night, I was permanently getting up in… the night to put the dummy back in, I was so worried he would wake my 4 year old I would do anything to keep him quiet. But after 7 months of sleepless nights I’d had enough, I was desperate for some sleep. I was at a loss as my first slept through from early on and I needed some help and guidance. Some friends of mine has worked with Karen in the past and recommended her. I now wished I had done it sooner. She gave me the confidence to get Rory through the night and to give up the dummy. Karen gave me a step by step instructions and Rory responded to them almost immediately. She was there on a daily basis if we had any problems or if things needed to be fine tuned. I had got to a point where I was so tired I couldn’t think for myself, I was short tempered with my husband and children and didn’t know where to turn. Karen saved me and my family, I can’t thank her enough for what she has done and couldn’t recommend her more. So if you are thinking about calling her, don’t even hesitate!” Thank you for saving me and my family.Merry Christmas 🙂 Olivia Read more “”
I can’t thank Karen enough for her help in getting Jack to sleep quickly at bedtime, and then remain asleep… throughout the night. Saying ‘I can’t believe the difference it has made to all our lives’ would not be true – I was always fully aware of how much better/easier/happier life would be if we didn’t have to spend two hours every night getting Jack to sleep, and then deal with him running into our room every couple of hours thereafter – it’s just that as a family nothing we tried to achieve this was very successful! We spent a couple of months assuming/(hoping?!) things would get better before we decided to seek help when it was apparent this wasn’t going to happen. I was unsure as to how a proper consultation could take place without meeting in person and without seeing the baby’s bedroom, but Karen listened carefully for 2 hours to understand Jack’s personality, the current bedtime routine and to gauge what would work for both him and his parents. This allowed her to construct a detailed plan for us to follow. A nervous Dad put Jack to bed the first night and was amazed the process only took about 20 minutes – which has been the case almost every night since. Stopping the night wakings took longer, but we could see improvement, which kept us confident we would get there. While there are ups and downs in the process – having Jack throwing his teddy out of him room and shutting the door behind him was a particular low-light –nothing phases Karen or appears to be a new scenario to her, and ‘the plan’ is slightly tweaked to allow for the previous night. A month later, Jack has now slept for a full 12 hours for over a week, and having him happily running into our room at 6.45 with a big smile saying ‘rabbit’s awake!’ is one of the highlights of my day! I can confidently say that this would not be the case if we hadn’t had Karen’s help. Read more “”
I contacted Karen for advice regarding our six month old. At that time he was waking 3 or 4 times… a night and could only return to sleep with milk or rocking. He was also unable to settle and nap in his cot during the day. Our initial 15 minute consultation filled me with hope and positivity and true to her word when Karen and I met for our one to one session she talked openly and honestly with me regarding the issues we were facing and how to change them. Her personal sleep plan for our son had him putting himself to sleep, and back to sleep on the first night, and sleeping through within days. I was amazed that he could adapt so quickly when we consistently carried out the plan. As Karen had advised naps would prove harder to master however two weeks later our son is successfully napping in his cot twice a day. The daily support in the early part of the plan is invaluable to discuss any issues and gain reassurance. An amazing service, from a genuinely kind and caring professional. Read more “”
THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving me my SLEEP back as well as my life. Before i meet karen… i was up and down most of the night and suriving on a few hours sleep, which was hard especially when it was affecting my work as well as my home life and my general health. Within just a few days of meeting karen and sticking to my bedtime routine charlie my 20month old son had started to sleep through the night again as well as having a two and half hour sleep in the afternoon giving me time to myself again. Thank you once again. 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 “”
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 were at breaking point when we contacted Karen for help with our beautiful twins. They were never good day… time nappers but initially they only woke once in the night to feed and then would go back to sleep until 6.30 -7am. However, after one of the twins became poorly this changed and between them they were waking nearly every hour. We were exhausted and so were our babies, which then impacted on their day and my ability to enjoy my time with them. When we spoke to Karen she was so positive and provided a sleeping program that was so individually tailored to our babies needs and our parenting style that it inspired confidence in our ability to help our babies learn how to sleep through the night and nap for longer. One of the things that make the program so effective is the regular contact and support that Karen gives, it is invaluable to have someone to talk to who is so positive and kind when you are feeling so low and sleep deprived. Now my lovely twins are sleeping longer at nap time and throughout the night and they are developing both emotionally and developmentally in leaps and bounds as they are no longer exhausted. We cannot thank Karen enough for the difference it has made not only to our lives but to our babies lives and we would recommend her to anyone who has children with sleep problems. 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.

Wow what more can I say but thank you so much Karen, my son who is 17 months old slept… in my bed with waking every hour for a bottle of milk to comfort him back to sleep, I was totally worn out, being pregnant too I thought enough is enough, so calling Karen for the first time was amazing, she told me my sons sleep could be sorted I thought it wouldn’t work and was so negative about the plan given, but to our amazement our son slept through the whole night on the “FIRST” night!! I couldn’t believe it, so thank you again Karen for your fab advice and support but most of all patients, we have our evenings back and a very happy little boy. Read more “”
