Hello, I’m Emma, a Certified Baby and Toddler Sleep Consultant having completed my training through baby sleep consultant training, a holistic science and evidence based intensive 6 month course approved by the International Institute for Complimentary Therapists.
I’m based in Chislehurst, South London and I have 2 young children, Ruben my eldest born in 2016 and Isabelle born in 2019. They are both great sleepers and I believe this is through my love of a good routine and keen interest in baby sleep!
But it wasn’t always this way….
When Ruben was born, I knew very little about babies sleep and I had no idea how long he should be sleeping for, when he should be having a nap etc and I really struggled with breastfeeding. I didn’t realise how hard this was going to be! Just when I thought things were starting to settle down, at around 16 weeks old, he started waking every 2 hours at night & would only go back to sleep if I gave him a bottle but he wasn't hungry as would only have the tiniest amount. Ruben would also only nap for 45 mins at a time during the day. I was at a loss as to why he wouldn’t sleep for very long.
After very little sleep through the newborn stage and 2 weeks of this I thought something needs to change so we decided to try some sleep training and after 3 days he found his thumb and started sleeping through the night with a dream feed!
With Isabelle, I was so keen to avoid sleepless nights from early on so I worked on getting her in to a good routine and putting some healthy sleep habits in place. By 3 months old she was sleeping through the night after her last feed at 10.30pm.
My success of helping my children get in to a good routine and sleeping through the night from an early age sparked my passion to become a Certified Baby and Toddler sleep consultant to help other parents help their child to sleep well too.
