Are You Looking for Ways to Get Your Child to Sleep?
Does ANY of this sound familiar?
My child fights sleep, and won’t take a nap
My child wakes up at night and won’t go back to sleep
My baby needs to nurse to get to sleep, multiple times a night
Why does my baby feed all night and when do I wean night feedings?
My child only sleeps on me or when held
My toddler won’t sleep in his/her own bed
My child needs to be rocked, bounced, or taken for a drive
How do I get enough sleep with a child who won’t sleep through the night?
At Baby Sleep the Night™, we believe a baby, toddler, or child should not be waking you up again and again at night. Night waking is normal and most children wake up at night – quite frequently, actually. So do adults, but we have the ability to go back to sleep if we do.
A child sleep consultant’s job is to help you teach your little one to go back to sleep when they do wake up at night. When a child can resettle independently, they will only wake you up if they are genuinely in distress. If they do wake up, they will learn to go back to sleep without tears or fuss. This way, they get vital, nourishing deep sleep.
Sleep is a necessity for the child’s health (and the parents’!) and if they don’t get enough of it, it can affect them and you quite adversely.
In fact, mums whose babies don’t sleep are 3 times more likely to develop post-partum depression!
Being a mother myself, I sat through many, many nights wondering how to get my children to sleep. After one particularly traumatic incident caused by my lack of sleep, where I was such a walking zombie that I almost crashed my car with my three children in it, I sought help.
Now I help others, by training baby and child sleep consultants. These sleep specialists are well versed in the Baby Sleep the Night™ philosophy. They understand all about sleep regressions, self-soothing, night feed weaning, and more. If you’ve not slept in a long time because of your child, they will find the right way to get your child to sleep… the whole night!

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 “”
“We first contacted Karen after the worst night ever!!!!! Our 7month old was having serious issues with sleep and they… were only getting worse. He would never go to sleep easily. He would be awake until 10pm sometimes, only settle being rocked or laying next to us, them would wake up numerous times a night, require 1-2 bottles per night and have his dummy constantly. When he hadn’t slept in his cot for 2 weeks (only in bed with us) we knew we needed help! I found her on Facebook and looked at all the glowing reviews, and seen as Karen was offering a free 15 minute consultation, I thought it can’t hurt to have a chat. Karen was immediately reassuring, telling me that it was nothing she hadn’t come across before and that with a little work, we could sort his sleep issues out for good, so we decided to go for it! Now if you’re reading this thinking, ‘I bet my child will be the only one that it won’t work for’, I thought the same. But it has. In the 2 weeks we have been doing the plan, Cooper now sleeps from 7pm till about 6am. If he wakes in the night he is able to settle himself. He has not been in our bed at all. He has not had a night feed at all. He has not had a dummy (night or day) at all. His naps remain short but they are in his cot rather than taking the car out to get him to sleep and I know this will come together in the next few weeks. I am currently able to write this because he is asleep in his cot at 3pm!!!! 2 weeks ago he would have been asleep on me. Was it hard work? Yes. Was there tears? Yes. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!!! Absolutely and completely worth every single penny. We have our evenings and our bed back. But more importantly, our little man is getting much more sleep which will help him grow and thrive!!!” Read more “”
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 “”
Our 2 year old son had never been a good napper or sleeper and finally we thought enough is enough!… Karen came to see us and brought a personalised sleep plan for us to follow. We felt she really understood our needs and our parenting style. With her support and encouragement, she gave us the confidence to enable our son to develop good napping and night time sleeping habits within a very short time. We are enjoying a brighter, happier toddler and we finally feel rested. We never thought it was possible! Thank-you Karen Read more “”
Hi Karen, I wanted to say a big Thank You to you helped my daughter with her sleeping issue. My… daughter Lilly has not sleep thought the night since she was born, now she is just over 2 years old. For the last two years, me and my partner have no life ourself, I have no more than 5 hours sleep every night, we couldn’t go out because she wakes up for dummy, holding hands and when she turned one and half years old, she started to come to our bed. Like lot of family, it is the easy opinion to do so, but gets to the point that she wanted to do it when she go down at 7 o clock, this makes us have no evening together. I did contact Karen about year a ago, I thought I can resolve the situation, I wish I did go ahead with it, but I am glad I talked to her again and made that works. Within 3 days my daughter sleeps in her cot, no dummy, no hand holding and she slept through till half 6. Now today(31th of Jan), two week since what we started, I don’t have to go in her room anymore, she sleeps herself now, it was amazing, I would never dream about someone don’t know my daughter would helped me make her sleep through the night. I would definitely recommend Karen if you experience the same as I do. She is worth every penny. Now me and my partner can go out and have our evening back, and I am not tired to handle the day anymore, I am so happy. Thank you Karen. Read more “”
Ever since Harriet was born we had sleep problems. Inability to latch on, then silent reflux then lactose intolerance, then… a major set back in building work on our house meant living here there and everywhere sharing a room with Harriet far longer than expected! As a baby she would wake every 20 minutes , she got to a year and we would get about an hour or so before each wake up, luckily I only worked part time so I managed to catch up on sleep an hour here or there when I could but I just felt exhausted depressed and saddened that we had this amazing bundle of joy in the day but such a terror at night. We didn’t understand why she would constantly wake cry and want us. When Harriet was 18 months we moved back home , we never really had a routine and would dread night time every evening at dinner time my husband and I would get anxious and dread what was coming. We would either stay at my parents or Gary’s parents for dinner then drive home late for her to fall asleep in the car just for an hour respite or else it would be her falling asleep downstairs for us to then take her up when the night was over for us! She seemed like the Duracell baby and never wanted to sleep or needed it! We thought , to try and encourage sleep we would put her in a big girls bed! Well it made no difference and so many times she just climbed out and called us. I was up and into her up to 10 times a night to quickly put the dummy in or settle her before she woke up fully. I was exhausted!!! My husband would go in from 9-1 and I would do the night shift to try and help each other out. But it got to the point where I was working full time and enough was enough and we couldn’t go on like it anymore, and we felt so sorry for her little brain and body never resting!!! A friend of mine had used Karen and highly recommended her. My husband and I were a little apprehensive and thought it would never work with our strong minded stubborn independent 2 year old! WELL IT IS SINGULARLY THE BEST THING WE HAVE EVER DONE! For all those non believers and pessimistic parents PLEASE HAVE FAITH!! Karen gave us confidence and exactly what we needed to do without the crying out approach.We had to revert back TO THE COT which I felt so terrible for but the bed wasn’t working anyway. We also had to take her dummy and taggy away (all the distractions) but she was allowed her soft dolly.We had a routine we needed to follow, and as hard as it was we stuck by it!!! Night 1: an hour of tears and upset then settled- 2 wake ups, Night2: 30 minutes of tears and crying – 1wake up, Night 3: 10 minutes crying then settled- 2 wake ups and put herself back to sleep after only a few minutes of calling out! Seeing Harriet so upset and calling out our names and begging for us even when we were sat in the room with her was heartbreaking and we felt distraught but it wasn’t because she was actually hurt or sad it was just because of change, and she soon got used to it! And has days now when she is upstairs wanting messy bath time before we are even ready! 🙂 She asked for her dummy for 2 nights we explained how we gave it to her baby cousin and that was that. She soon got over that. 3weeks later……. My husband and I have never had so much sleep in over 2 Years!!!!! And can watch a film uninterrupted!!!!! A MIRACLE!!!!!! I REALLY CANT EXPRESS WHAT A LIFE CHANGER IT IS FOR ALL THE FAMILY!!!!! We also had friends round for a curry night which has never ever been possible before without constant interruptions!!! PLEASE DONT WAIT ANY LONGER….. IF you are reading this it’s because you are probably desperate for a little sleep!!!! CALL KAREN you will not regret it!! Xxx Thank you Karen for everything! We will call you when our next bundle of joy is due to arrive to ensure we get it right from the start! Read more “”
We contacted Karen about our daughter Evelyn when she was 7 months old and was waking around 4-5 times a… night and only settling by being breastfed. Our first daughter was a legendary sleeper and slept 7-7 from around 10 weeks so we weren’t prepared for the torture that is sleep deprivation! We had no idea what to do and were given so much conflicting advice from breastfeeding counselors, friends and from researching sleep solutions online. What we needed was a plan and the confidence that she could and would sleep well! That’s where Karen came in. We were amazed to read past testimonials of her successes with other families going through the same as us and after a 15 minute consultation call we were sure that she could help us. Our initial consultation was an hour and a half and consisted of a really detailed discussion about Evelyn and her sleep habits, how we felt about her sleep and what we had done so far to try to help her. We had basically done exactly what we had with our first daughter, expecting it to work exactly the same, but soon realised Evelyn was a very different baby. Karen talked us through our detailed sleep plan which involved a few small but significant changes to our bedtime routine and a bit more structure around day time naps. She was calm and supportive every step of the way and reassured us that we were doing what was best for Evelyn and for us, and she was right. The first night Evelyn woke twice briefly and settled herself and then had a longer waking and with our comfort and support was able to get back to sleep. The next night she woke briefly twice, and then after 4 nights she slept all night! We couldn’t believe it. We thought it might be a one off but 2 weeks later she is still sleeping 11-12 hours at night and having 2 good naps a day. We are starting to feel more human again and its all down to Karens support and advice. We cant thank you enough for what you have done for us and for Evelyn! Thank you so much. Love from Liz, Ian and Evelyn x Read more “”
“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 “”
What can we say? After months of sleep deprivation and a toddler, who had just turned two, slowly turning into a… vampire we finally decided enough was enough and after a recommendation enlisted the help of Karen at Baby Sleep The Night. After a friendly chat and then a thorough consultation a plan was devised. With a few simple and manageable changes with Karen guiding us all the way this new plan was put in place.On the first night we were not woken up and Theo no longer had his dummy. A fluke…surely? Well we are now nearly two months on and we have one very happy little boy who now loves his sleep – nearly as much as Mummy and Daddy do now. Thank you so much Karen. The difference you have made to our family life is amazing. I just wish we had asked for your help sooner 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 “”
