I’m a firm believer in ‘a house that sleeps is a house that smiles’!
If you’re reading my profile we have something in common…….we both struggle with our child’s sleep.
I’m a Mum of two and when I had my first baby I knew nothing about babies and sleep. I personally love my sleep; I can’t function without it, so it was a shock when my daughter didn’t sleep for any length of time.
She mainly slept on our chests as a new-born, day and overnight! My husband and I took turns during the night to sit up in bed with her sleeping on our chests! We barely slept and the fatigue we experienced had an immensely negative impact on our family.
She was diagnosed with Reflux at 3 months which explained a lot and after medication we were told her sleep would ’get better’ ….but it never did. At 6 months we were told when she’s on solids her sleep would ‘get better’ ….but it never did. By 9 months bedtime meant lying beside her for hours until she fell asleep, gently try to transfer her to the cot hoping she would stay asleep. If she woke mid transfer we had to repeat the process again which could take hours. I read books, spoke to Medical Professionals, family, friends but any advice I received didn’t help and she never ‘grew out of it’.
After struggling for 18 months I hit breaking point. I was exhausted, I wasn’t seeing my husband and our relationship became strained as he was working and our evenings were spent trying to get our daughter to sleep. I desperately searched the internet again one night and I got help from a professional sleep expert Karen Bramall. With some straight forward changes my daughter slept 12 hours overnight and napped in her cot. I couldn’t believe it, it changed my life. She learnt to be an independent sleeper, a skill for life!
I was so overwhelmed with the transformation it had on my life that I changed my career to do the same for others. I fully certified as a Baby Sleep the Night Sleep Consultant a few years ago and I have worked with many families and helped them transform their lives. Sleep can be a very complex puzzle in children and the smallest thing makes the biggest difference to your child sleeping well.
I work closely with parents by listening and understanding their child’s sleep situation. I create holistic, bespoke sleep plans working around the family’s lifestyle as much as possible. I provide the tools and knowledge you need to teach your child and give them the gift of good sleep skills. My methods are gentle and effective; you provide comfort to your child, supporting them through the process which allows them room to learn, with you right by their side.
If you change nothing, nothing will change. With some correct adjustments you too can have a baby that sleeps through the night and takes good naps!
