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.

Amazing is just one word!! My son is 16 months old and has only slept through the night 3 times. … He would wake up the same time every night at around 11pm and 3am. He would always want milk to get him back to sleep. Me and husband had come to point where is was driving us mad and had to seek help. That’s were Karen came in. After having a new routine and the fabulous Karen at hand he was sleeping through after night 4! I thought it wouldn’t work and that I would cave in but no I stuck to it and the result was amazing. I have already recommended her to friends and I am sure that they will be amazed as we were. Read more “”
After 21 months of crying for 2-3 hours a night we decided enough was enough and contacted Karen to help get… our little boy sleeping through the night. We have read and tried numerous different ways to try and get him to consistently sleep through the night and none of them worked for us. Karen devised a sleep plan for us to work with and it was tweaked along the way to suit our little boy and us. Unfortunately during the process, we had the clocks changing, chicken pox and a nasty cough and cold to contend with but we have now had 16 nights of sleeping through!!! Not only are we feeling more human, our little boy is much happier in the daytime and napping better too. Thanks Karen Read more “”
I contacted Karen on a whim after reading on the internet from various sites what seemed like the 100th tip… to get my 11 month old daughter to sleep through the night and have a nap through the day! To be honest my husband wasn’t convinced that contacting Karen was the best way as he had convinced himself that she would never sleep through! However as I was due to return to work I was desperate for things to change. After speaking with Karen at great length and completing the questionnaire on Ruby’s sleep habits Karen assured me there was light at the end of the tunnel and that she was confident we could turn things around. Of course it was hard to start with but by the second night Ruby had surprised both me and my husband by sleeping through the night! The daytime naps even started to fall in place! You wouldn’t believe the difference a full nights uninterrupted sleep can do! We have both felt like we have more energy and Ruby is also not as cranky through the day! Karen was very supportive throughout the process even when I buckled at the start and picked her out of her cot for a cuddle! I only wish I had contacted Karen earlier! We have missed out on so much valuable sleeping time! But now I can say I feel more confident in being able to return to work knowing that we have all had a decent nights sleep! 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 “”
My son had always been a good sleeper and had no trouble going to bed. Suddenly at around 18 months… he started waking in the night and not wanting to be left alone and he started early rising. We managed to pretty much overcome the night waking but the early rising became a daily thing with 5.15am the norm! On top of this, he refused to nap during the day when at home so we were stuck in a rut with a tired child and tired parents. With a brand new addition to the family and the increased lack of sleep that brings too, we decided enough was enough and I called Karen. My only reservation was that I did not want to pay to be told things I already know or have read in books and I hoped Karen would have some fairy dust up her sleeve…She did. Just after I convinced my husband to let us spend the money on Karen’s services, we had such a rough night that he said he’d pay double! I think he nearly hugged her when he answered the door to her. We had the complete solution package and the newborn package for our two children. We expected it to be hard at first but we saw a massive improvement on our very first night of sleep training our toddler. Over the two weeks of training we have turned things around and he is now sleeping through to more like 7am with no night waking and still going to bed with no problems. We have also learnt valuable skills to help the newborn who is also sleeping through already at just 6 weeks. The best thing about hiring Karen is that she is there for you the whole way through the process. She tailors the training to your family’s needs and reminds and advises you if you come unstuck and she makes sure you see it through. You can’t get that from any book. This service is well worth every penny and I feel we will have years of benefit from it. I highly recommend it. Read more “”
We contacted Karen in utter desperation and exhaustion, after 9 long months of our baby daughter Rose not sleeping for… more than 1-2 hours at a time. We tried everything to get our daughter to drift into the deep, restorative sleep she clearly needed night and day, but nothing would work. We were beyond tired. After a difficult start in life, including a traumatic period in hospital, Rose quickly became a highly sensitive baby and a very poor sleeper. We felt we had tried everything, and just hoped things would get better as Rose got older; that she would naturally fall into a good sleep pattern all by herself. Unfortunately they didn’t and in the end we came to realise we needed expert help. We were looking for a sleep solution that was as kind as possible to both our daughter and us. Karen reassured us that Rose’s sleep problems were completely normal, and that we had done absolutely the right thing in comforting and responding to our daughter for those long and difficult months before seeking assistance. Karen took a detailed history and helped us to understand how sleeps works and the importance of good sleep. Karen was sympathetic, supportive and non-judgemental in her approach and advice. After following the tailored sleep plan, Rose now sleeps for 11 hours in the nights, and naps for almost 2 hours during the day! The difference has been simply life-changing for all of us. Rose is thriving after finally getting her much-needed sleep and we can enjoy our lovely, happy daughter to the full. We have already recommended Karen to all our friends with children. Read more “”
Our son Harry only ever woke once or twice during the night from birth and it was quite manageable. He… even slept through the night at 2 months. However when he reached 3 months old there was significant regression as he began waking 4/5 times a night and sometimes every hour all night, each time I would have to feed him. We could not understand why there was an all of a sudden change as we followed a set routine every night and hadn’t deviated from it. Harry was not good at being put down in a moses basket or cot for a nap from birth, he would wake after only 20 minutes or less. Harry would only nap well in someone’s arms and by 3 months he had to be rocked to sleep and we couldn’t put him down at all without him waking up straight away. This meant that I was literally stuck to the sofa all day with breastfeeding and naps. It was mostly our fault, it was difficult to conceive Harry and therefore we literally didn’t want to put him down and enjoyed every last cuddle with him. By 3 months however we began to realise that we were not getting anything done, we could not go anywhere and we had no time to ourselves at all. Soon we began to dread night time and exhaustion had set in. So we contacted our good friend Karen, we were desperate to get Harry back into good sleep habits. We didn’t like to see Harry upset so we were concerned about the possibility of having to leave him to cry during sleep training but we were honest with Karen about this. After our first consultation with Karen we knew immediately we had done the right thing. Karen really listened to our story and concerns and gave us so much knowledge about how our little baby worked, what was going wrong and how to improve it in a way that was comfortable for us as a family. Karen was so thorough, supportive, honest and made no judgements. We were given a bespoke sleep and nap plan and we were able to stay in Harry’s bedroom and sit by the cot so he was never alone. Although we were warned by Karen that she could not say Harry would not cry a little we were put completely at ease knowing we could be in the room with him. It even taught us the differences in his cries. We had a few very hard emotional days to begin with and we ensured we stuck to the plan to every letter. Karen was there to support us every step of the way with lots of words of encouragement and it kept us going. Within 3 days Harry was sleeping through the night (around 11 hours) and 5 days in he was having 3 naps a day in his cot of one and a half hours or more. AMAZING 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 “”
It’s amazing what you put up with when 2 weeks with Karen can completely change yours and your child’s life. … Jack would come and visit us 4 or 5 times a night, ask to sleep in our bed or we would end up sleeping on the floor in his room. We kept thinking it was just a phase and it would get better. It didn’t so we asked Karen for help. We had an informal consult when we discovered what methods Karen used. One thing we didn’t want to do was try things that we had tried before and hadn’t worked. Karen then spent 2 hours with us via face time discovering what type of child Jack was, what our routines were and then sent us a detailed plan of what to do as well as talking us through the plan. I’m not denying things changed in a day and that it was easy! It took a lot of hard work from us but Karen made us see it was working and was there with positive words and back up when we needed it. Jack now sleeps 12 hours a night, goes to bed easily and we have seen such a developmental leap in conversation which I do think is due to sleeping better. He’s really happy, as are we that we have achieved a great balance for work, rest and play! My husband and I even managed a night out after 3 weeks of the plan which we hadn’t achieved in a year! Thank you Karen! Read more “”
I just want to say thank you for helping our 15 month old sleep through the night. He had been… waking up for his bottle every three hours or so for as long as I can remember. Within three days of starting your programme he was sleeping through the night. One week in and now it is only me that wakes up at silly o’clock in the morning. It looks like it is going to take me longer to adjust than him! Read more “”
