I kept telling myself that his sleep would improve

Case study I just had to share this amazing case study of a family with a 14 month old toddler, Christian who was waking many times at night. Mum was so exhausted she'd lost her confidence and was co-sleeping and breastfeeding to sleep. Mum kept telling herself that...

Complex medical cases and sleep training

Skull surgery and sleep training Occasionally I come across a very complex medical case I'm asked to help sleep train. My job as a baby whisperer is most definitely not for the faint-hearted. After 29 years as a registered midwife and nurse, I've seen a lot of rare...

Eylem & Ava, 6 months

We have a gorgeous daughter Ava. Up until 5-6 months she was an ok sleeper, with a dummy or breastfeed generally able to soothe her back to sleep after waking up during the night…but all of a sudden something changed! Ava was refusing the dummy and my fail safe...

Charmaine & Angus 8 months

When I was expecting Baby #3, I promised myself I would NOT fall into the rocking habit (as with baby #2) and end up, for a second time at Tresillian. (Who, for the record are wonderful and do wonderful work!) But it didn’t take long for rocking Angus to sleep to...

Stella & Valentino 6 weeks

Karen’s approach is confident and extremely knowledgeable. Her ability to recognise a baby’s protest from a serious need is, what I believe, is her magic touch. Karen’s approachable and non-judgemental interactions have always left me the mother with so much more...

Beatriz & Julia 3 months

Julia was the quintessential catnapper. She was a colicky baby and would only do 45min at the time. Only rarely would she surprise us with a long nap. The nights were not that bad and that’s what kept us going hoping for a change in her behaviour or what I often hear...

Michelle & Sophie 4 months

Karen, you’re an absolute superstar and we cannot thank you enough. When others were worried about the 4 month sleep regression, all I could think was we don’t sleep that well now for it to get worse! After all she slept on us for the first month of her life. We got...

Allana & Sandrine 6 months

I cannot recommend Karen highly enough. She is one of those special gems that we were lucky enough to find (actually referred to me via my GP). After helping with our now 2 year old back in 2014 in Sydney we relocated to NZ for a few years. Having had number 2 in late...

Jessica & Mikayla 11 months

As I sit down to write this I am honestly amazed at how different my life is to what I was experiencing a few months ago. Karen will always be our real life Mary Poppins and I can never thank her enough. From the day Miki turned 4 months old I felt I was living a...

Katrina, Tom & Nicholas 9 months

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Karen changed our lives. My 9 month old baby boy was waking an average of 5 times a night and I was feeding him back to sleep each time. The months and months of broken sleep had taken a massive physical and emotional toll. In one...
