Hello, I’m Emily Nurse and I’m delighted to be here as a certified Baby Sleep the Night consultant to work with you to help solve your child’s sleep issues, gently and quickly! So, let me tell you why I’m so enthusiastic about getting your child on the right track with sleep.

I have two sons who now sleep brilliantly, but I remember all too clearly the first two years of sleepless nights, when I tried so many different things to get our eldest son to sleep, none of which worked and just made us all the more frazzled. I also remember falling into despair when my second son began the same pattern of sleepless nights at six months old. It was then I found Baby Sleep the Night, followed the plan to the letter, and Bingo! My little son slept through on the third night and regular naps followed. My life, and the life of my family, was transformed. Our days were filled with fun, love and laughter rather than exhaustion and dread of the night ahead. So for me, this is personal.

For all my adult life I’ve worked to explore and investigate people’s behaviour. First as a research social scientist, then for 15 years, using these skills to successfully help people make difficult behavioural changes in their lives as a Specialist Health Promotion Outreach worker for the NHS.

I love channeling these skills into Sleep Consultancy. I bring my research skills and academic rigour to analyse what the issues are for your child, and create the best possible solution for them, and for you. I always advocate using the gentlest methods that will be effective for your child and incorporate your parenting style and choices into your child’s plan. I work in a nurturing, client-centred and solution-focused way and see the benefits of this approach time after time. I explain the reasons behind every aspect of your bespoke sleep plan and I am with you every step of the way, answering all your questions, supporting you through the tough times and celebrating your many successes.

But don’t take my word for it, read the testimonials and see for yourself. Imagine writing one of those! 

If you are looking for a caring, tenacious and dedicated sleep consultant then call me, Emily, now on 07817 694333 or use the form below to book a free 15 minute assessment. I’m looking forward to starting your family’s journey to peaceful nights.  Evening and weekend appointments available

One-to-One Sleep Solutions Package

This is the most popular package, and consists of:-

  • A preliminary evaluation. This is a comprehensive questionnaire about your child’s sleep habits and routines that you’ll fill out prior to our meeting. (Having this information in advance helps us make the most of our time together).
  • A private, 90 minute consultation in the comfort of your own home, or via Skype/FaceTime or telephone, where we’ll discuss strategies, troubleshoot possible problems and learn how to address bedtime, naptime, nightwakings or any other specific issues you might be dealing with.
  • A detailed, fully customized sleep plan, that I will prepare for you after the conclusion of our meeting.
  • Four follow up telephone calls during the first week following the consultation. These follow-up calls last about 15 minutes, and we’ll use this time to deal with any setbacks you might be having or answer any general questions.
  • One week of e-mail support. After your four follow-up telephone calls have been used, you still have an additional week of e-mail support where you can email me once daily, excluding Sundays I will always aim to reply to your queries within one working day.

The total cost for the One-to-One Sleep Solutions package for a baby or toddler in a cot is £245 by Skype/Facetime/Phone. If your child is in a bed this package is £265 due to the complexity of the plan.

Face to face consultations are available within a 30 minute driving radius of Romsey, Hampshire (further distances can be accommodated with additional travel expenses– please call for details)

New-born – Get it right from the Start Package

This is a comprehensive training plan helping parents of new-borns train their little ones to have fabulous sleep skills from a very young age and can be implemented from day one! Getting an early start in establishing healthy sleep habits is a huge advantage for both babies and their parents. With this package, you will learn everything you need to teach your baby to be an independent sleeper right from the beginning. It is a fantastic gift package for new parents too and consultations can take place before or after the baby has arrived. (gift certificates available and can be posted direct to the lucky couple if required) It consists of:-

  • A private 60 minute telephone or in-home consultation. We will discuss how to establish a healthy sleep plan for your new-born, discussing sleep needs, schedules for feeding, naps and bedtime, how to help teach your baby the difference between day and night, creating the right sleeping environment, strategies to encourage sleep, when to expect your baby to be sleeping longer stretches, and common sleep issues that can be easily avoided.
  • A detailed sleep plan. If you are expecting, the gentle, caring techniques in your sleep plan will teach you how to create an independent sleeper from day one, and will give you a flexible guide to quickly bring some routine, when baby arrives, to a time of your lives which can otherwise become quite overwhelming. If you baby has already arrived, your sleep plan will be fully customized for your family.
  • TWO follow-up phone calls. If you are following a sleep plan from the beginning then you will find your baby is naturally developing wonderful independent sleep skills, you may find you have some questions so we will schedule a telephone call within 2 weeks of the baby’s birth just in case (if you are expecting) or within 2 weeks of consultation (if you already have your baby at home). These calls typically last about 15 minutes.
  • Two follow-up e-mails I will give you my personal email address so you can email me on two occasions with any questions or concerns any time within the first 3 months of your baby’s birth or our consultation. After 3 months you can purchase another week of email support at any time should you need it .

The Refresher

It is not uncommon for babies and toddlers who have been taught to be great sleepers to ‘test the boundaries’ from time to time. This option is for parents who have met with me in the past, but are looking for a ‘refresher’. This is a popular option for past clients who have recently had a new baby – or who are expecting in the near future. It consists of:-

  • A private, 60 minute consultation, usually by phone or by Skype, during which we’ll use to discuss any particular challenges you are having with your child. Since we’ve already worked together, a full hour is usually more than enough time to cover all your questions and concerns.
  • Optional 2x follow-up emails that you can use to send me any additional questions that might come up as you get things back on track. I’ll aim to respond to your email within one day.

The total cost for the Refresher Package 60 minute consultation is £95, with 2x optional emails £125

My 7 month old baby was waking at least 4 times every night and had no real nap structure. She’s my 5th baby and I thought I would know how to fix it myself but couldn’t. I had never experienced this with any of my other babies. I was at the end of my tether and absolutely exhausted. In two weeks, strictly following Emily’s sleep plan my baby sleeps at the same times every day and through the night. I could not recommend Emily highly enough. This process is truly life changing.

(Jodi, mum of 5, Andover)

We were lucky enough to find Emily through a friend. Becs and I had a discussion about ‘sleep training’. I wanted to do it as my mental health was really poor, Becs wasn’t so sure and was troubled about leaving Teddy to cry and expecting him to soothe himself at such a young age. Becs did eventually agree but only out of concern for me. Our main concern was leaving the baby to cry. Emily assured us that the plan wasn’t like controlled crying and that we wouldn’t be leaving him to scream and scream alone for hours on end, or even at all.


We have to say that it was honestly the best thing we could’ve done.  Emily gave us a pre-plan to try and change a few things so that the transition for Teddy would be easier. We managed to get some of the tips in place before we started. We then had a Skype consultation where Emily explained the theory behind her technique. She sent us the plan she had written for Teddy. On first read we found it daunting, even though we had a basic understanding for the reasons for its design, we were unsure if we would be able to follow it. There seemed to be lots of rules! We weren’t sure we would have the nerve to sit through any bed/night time crying without picking Teddy up, so we asked Emily to come and stay with us the first night. Becs had a terrible day at work, dreading the evening and what we were about to ‘put Teddy through’. When Emily turned up at the front door we liked her immediately (and she looks nothing like the child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang). She arrived just before bath time and stayed until 7.30am the following morning. It was super helpful to have her there, and she’s also a fun person to hang out with! She talked us through everything and then held our hands when we implemented it. The best bit was that we did not need to leave Teddy alone to cry, one of us was by his side through the whole process (and, with a timer on, the crying did not last as long as we thought it might). On night two we were confident enough to follow all the instructions and know we were doing it all correctly. By the fourth night our baby slept through. It was amazing. Teddy went from countless short feeds in 24 hours to five substantial feeds. After the fourth night, he dropped the night feed altogether. Naps were harder to get right, but three weeks in our baby pretty much has two long naps (1.5-2 hrs) one in the morning, one in the afternoon, a short cat-nap around 5pm and then sleeps from 7pm to nearly 7am. Now when we put him down in his cot we often get a broad grin before we leave and he is happy to go to sleep! 


We were sceptical and desperate when we first approached Emily. We were wary about being cruel and selfish to Teddy as we thought we were the only ones missing out on sleep. As Teddy began to sleep well, for the first time in his short life, he transformed into a relaxed and cheerful chap and we’re so grateful for the transformation Emily has brought about. Although Emily was there for us, we were there for Teddy, sitting by him and supporting him as he discovered a new skill - sleeping - that will see him through his whole life. THANK YOU EMILY!!!

We are extremely grateful for the help Emily has given us with giving us back our lives again.  
Two weeks after our daughters third birthday, our daughter went from going to bed quietly and sleeping through till 7am, to screaming when left alone at bedtime, and then waking in the night, coming out of her room into ours, and saying “I don’t want to” when put back to bed.  We tried all the tactics we had at our disposal but to no avail. After 4 weeks of ever decreasing sleep for all in the house, Emily came to our rescue.

Emily listened to our dilemma, talked us through a sleep plan and then supported us fully through the process and encouraged us with phone calls initially and then emails after. I am really pleased to say that bed time is once again a pleasure, and that night times are under control, with not a word until “mummy, mummy, clock’s awake” which is at a time of our choosing (usually 7am). Although it took a while to get the light mornings quiet through till 7,  Emily stuck through us and helped us troubleshoot until we had got there. (Self employed, mother of 3 year old daughter)

Emily has been brilliant. She came to our house, listened with sympathy and support, took us through her plan - pointing out what would be harder to deal with, what it would achieve and why and where there would be flexibility, and kept in regular touch with us as we put the plan into action. 

The plan worked from day 1. Our daughter has slept right through every night now for nearly a month save on a handful of occasions when she she either soothed herself to sleep or was ill or too hot. And in the latter two, she went back to sleep after little intervention from us.
We cannot rate Emily highly enough. The joy of sleep. For all of us. She has brought it back.

Thank you! (Nurse, Winchester, mother of 2 year old daughter who had never slept through the night)

Our 12 month old was getting worse and worse at sleeping, both at night time and nap time. He couldn't go to sleep or stay asleep without us helping him. He wouldn't sleep more than 30 minutes on his own and was ending up in our bed more often than not. We were stumped as our other 2 children had had their sleeping issues, but nothing as seemingly insurmountable as this. We were exhausted and having tried some strategies without success, didn't know where to turn.

Having Emily help us was the best thing we ever did. After the first night following her instructions, we have not had to go in to him once and he now sleeps regularly for 12 hours at night. Nap times were a bit more tricky, but with perseverance and continually following and repeating the steps, we have got a baby that can settle himself to sleep and resettle if he wakes up. Our lives have been drastically changed, and our other two children are having better sleep too as a result of not being disturbed by anything now.

If you are considering seeking Emily's support, I would completely recommend that you do. Emily will talk you through everything, answer all your questions, put your mind at rest, support you through the tricky times and equip you to continue with your new great sleeping child!

James, Legal Manager, Hampshire, Dad to 12 month old son


We are really happy with the progress he's made so far under your advice, compassionate support, humour and understanding! We'll keep up the work and hopefully we'll see more improvement overnight. The sleep he gets now - both in the day and night - is amazing given where we were last week.  (he is proving himself an increasingly excellent self settler when wind is not troubling him and you were quite correct to identify his inner genius (roooooooooaaaar! tiger mums!)). 

Thanks for all your help we're SO GRATEFUL!  (Feedback after just 6 days of following the sleep plan)

(Radiographer, Southampton, 5 month old son)


We knew sleep was important but we honestly didn’t realise how important sleep was, to our family of 5, until we went through this process with Emily from Baby Sleep The Night.

We were helped to discover our baby’s individual sleep requirements which we made a priority for 2 weeks. All our non-essential trips were cancelled. The phone and email support we received from Emily gave us the strength to continue and then, the evidence spoke for itself! Our baby now sleeps for almost 12 hours every night and has 2 established naps during the day. We have resumed our family activities around these daytime naps with ease.

It has been such a life changing process . Thanks Emily for all your hard work and support as we really appreciate it. You were exactly what our family needed!

(Teacher, Romsey, 6 month old daughter)

Since my baby boy was born (and since the last few months of pregnancy) I hadn’t had a single night of unbroken sleep. I knew that he should be sleeping through the night, especially after he turned one!! Being a military family, my husband had been posted away for 4 Months and our older daughter (10) was at boarding school so the baby and I had got in to the habit of sharing my bed and he would wake up several times a night and I would instantly give him a bottle of milk. This meant that he couldn’t sleep unless I was laying with him and feeding him milk so I had no evening and no real rest, I was just going to bed with him and waking up with him.
He was clingy and grizzly and I was tired and low. He also didn’t nap unless he was in the car! Looking back now he and I were both completely sleep deprived!
Emily has been my good friend for many years and had told me of the training she was undertaking in order to help families who had got in to difficulty with sleep (or lack of it!). Emily explained to me that she herself had followed the program in order to help her second child to sleep through the night and nap properly during the day and (most importantly) it had worked!! I have to admit I was sceptical, I couldn’t see a way out of the cycle I was in and just assumed I would have to carry on with the co-sleeping and continuous feeding indefinitely! But because I absolutely trust Emily and admire her as a mother, I decided I was going to give it my all and try. My husband was due home in about 6 weeks at the time and I was panicking thinking I need to get the baby out of our bed before he gets back and has to sleep on the sofa! So I began taking Emily’s guidance right away! What I really liked was the amount of information Emily asked about me and the baby and our situation and totally tailored the plan to us. She was extremely supportive and reassuring and I really felt as though me and my baby were her soul focus. I’d bedded in for several nights of hell and no sleep and had all the supplies I might need and Emily and I started night one of the new plan. After some expected hurdles, the baby slept through the night, in his room, in his cot, without me and without milk ON THE FIRST NIGHT! To say I was flabbergasted would be an understatement, I just couldn’t (and still can’t) believe it! To have success that quickly is obviously very lucky and won’t be like that for every family but even so, sleep is usually massively improved by night 4! And if you follow the plan, your child WILL sleep through the night. And it is soooo worth it! The baby and I have such a happier life now we are rested. He has slept through every night now for 5 weeks and one of those weeks we were on holiday and I kept to the program and he slept through there too in a completely new environment from day one! He also had a good nap during the day which gives me some time to sort the house or prepare food etc. I pinch myself every night when I get in to bed, by myself, after having had a whole evening to myself, knowing I don’t have to wake up again until the morning. After over a year of broken sleep it still feels like such a luxury!It is one week now until my husband returns and instead of dreading the battle of the bed I’m so excited to welcome him back in to our calm, rested life! Emily really could not have done more for me and the baby on this journey, she was full of in-depth info about sleep and was there to support us every step of the way. Emily was not at all judgemental about all the little habits I’d accidentally got in to in order to get some sleep and that made it really easy to be totally honest so that Emily could help us in the best way. Having a tailored, clear plan and a deeper understanding of the issues and how they could be resolved has honestly changed our lives and the positivity of solid sleep has had a knock on effect in to every other aspect of our lives! If you are reading this, tired, drained and desperate, please, please contact Emily, you will be so so pleased you did and soon it could be you writing a testimonial just like this, with your child asleep in bed and a full night of sleep ahead of you!
