Infant Sleep Consultants

Let Us Transform Your Life In Just A Few Days

When your child is not sleeping, it can be really difficult for the whole family. We know because we have been there ourselves with our eldest son Teddy. As a mother I felt so much guilt as I was too tired to even get down on the floor and play with him.

How We Can Help…

 After working with a sleep consultant and following a gentle sleep training plan, his sleep was unimaginably better in just a couple of weeks. It changed our lives so much, we decided to dedicate ourselves to helping other families in the same way.

We are one of Ireland’s leading sleep consultancy providing support to families across the world. We love working with you one-to-one or via our 5* rated online sleep plans – see all our plans here. We also run a training school that teaches other sleep consultants in the industry.

It’s all-consuming, emotional and draining, but it can get better. You may feel like you’ve tried everything already so what can we do differently? That comes from our unique approach Comforting Through Change™.

Our wee one slept on me for all naps and night time after refusing his bassinet and after 6+ months we were both ready for a change but didn't know how to go about it. I chose TMDSC because I didn't want to do any CIO, liked their vibe and to be honest I needed my hand held! We did 1:1 and honestly it was the best money I've spent and has totally changed our lives. I can now put the wee one down in his cot and leave and he sleeps 10-11 hours a night with no wake ups. It was truly mad how fast he adapted and the best thing about their method is you're with your baby the whole time comforting them. Naps have been harder but that's where having Chris on hand on whatsapp really came into its own. I am highly strung and anxious and having someone to check in with and ask a billion questions really helped me. It still boggles my mind that right now, my wee one is asleep in his cot while I sit here by myself writing this review! Honestly could not recommend them more 🙂

I was extremely anxious about going back to work as our baby simply wouldn't nap and the night sleep was very broken. Working with Chris has been a game changer for our wee family. Our 7 month old has gone from multiple night wakings and only napping on walks, to sleeping on average 11 hours each night (in his own room) and napping in his crib upstairs. We don't know ourselves as a family now we are all getting a full night's sleep. To top it off our baby is in amazing form as he is no longer in a state of constant over tiredness. Working with Chris is one of the best investments we have made as parents.

I was absolutely exhausted, my son who was 17 months was waking 5/6 times a night, I had tried rocking, shushing, pacing the floors, the only way I could settle him was to feed him. He wasn’t getting the sleep he needed and myself and my partner were wrecked. Dani listened to our sleep goals and came up with a plan for us to teach our son how to fall asleep without feeding. We updated Dani with our progress each day and she was there to answer any questions that we had along the way. She’s absolutely set us on the right path, we’re continuing to use the skills she gave us and our son is now sleeping through the night, some mornings we even have to waken him!!! I didn’t think we’d ever make it to this point! If you’re struggling, I know that Dani will be able to help you and your little one!

We were at our wit's end trying to get our 8-month-old to sleep for more than a 2-hour stretch. We were physically and mentally exhausted and could not see the wood for the trees in terms of how we could improve the situation. Our son had become heavily reliant on movement to get him to sleep and it had become just a matter of time before we'd hear the screams if we managed to put him down in the cot whilst asleep. My wife and I had become shift workers in order to tend to the countless wakes, sleeping in separate rooms for a few low-quality hours of sleep each night. After a bleary-eyed festive period it was clear that we could no longer be afraid of asking for help. We reached out to Chris who arranged a 15-minute discovery call. It was so reassuring - he was engaged and empathetic, and he was confident that he could help us. Once we signed up to the programme, Chris sent us a detailed co-sleeping plan for the first of our programme's two phases. Chris was honest with us - he didn't hide the fact that there were going to be tears at the start (and boy, were there tears), but it nevertheless felt like there was a breakthrough as early as the first night. We were really helped by the step-by-step process Chris provided, which was incredibly thorough. When our son reached the milestones the progress generally continued. Whenever there was a bump in the road, Chris was always available via WhatsApp, providing valuable advice and letting us know where we might be able to be flexible with the programme. By the end of the first phase, our son was sleeping for 6-hour stretches, something we hadn't previously thought possible. We had another call with Chris prior to the start of the next phase, which was all about moving our son to his cot. We were delighted at how following the process yielded results. It wasn't long before we could just put him down in the cot and leave the room for him to drift off for a night's sleep. We got our evenings back! Again, there were some hiccups, but Chris' advice always saw us through. Now we find ourselves in a situation where bedtimes are straightforward and our son can sleep independently for hours on end - that's an unbelievable result, considering where we were previously. There are still the occasional wobbles, but we feel that Chris' programme has given us the tools to address any issues. Would thoroughly recommend!

We can't believe the transformation in our 18 month olds sleep! We had tried sleep training before but didn't last long. We needed a solution before the arrival of our newborn so we reached out to Chris 3 weeks before our due date - challenge accepted!! I needed someone like Chris to set clear guidance on what we needed to do and our daughter took to it extremely well. She happily goes into her cot and goes to sleep herself so I have my hands free to manage our new arrival.

After six incredibly difficult sleepless months with our three year old we finally decided we needed some help. We couldn’t be more glad that we turned to Dani. From the beginning she was incredibly empathetic and understanding. She created a tailored programme for our son and supported us throughout the whole process. She was always available with advice when we hit a bump. Within a few days we were starting to see a change and after three weeks we had gone from sleepless nights, tantrums and stress to our much happier little boy sleeping solidly through the night. The impact on all of us was transformational. Dani is the real deal and we can’t recommend her enough.

Dani helped us to get our son into a routine of sleeping his cot. He used to sleep in my arms and then would transfer him into the cot. It took some time for us to get this done and Dani was there all the way to support us. Now I can actually have dinner with my wife again. Thanks for your support. Our son now sleeps on his own cot without much fuss.

We asked Dani to help us to sleep train our son. We were contact napping and bedsharing, we wanted him to sleep in his own space. We thought it would be an uphill struggle, but with Danis help and support the transition went better than we'd ever hoped for. Before Dani, I felt like we only had the two popular sleep training options to follow from the internet ( won't mention any names). Thank God we found Dani as she tailored our sleep plan to perfectly meet our families needs. Can't thank her enough.

We recently had the help of Chris as our 18 month old daughter was constantly waking throughout the evening and night, she would also only settle when fed to sleep, which meant we were often awake for 3+ hours in the night trying to get her to settle. With the help of Chris, she has now started to wake only once or even sleep through, which we never thought would happen. In addition to this, she now settles herself which makes the evenings stress free! I was initially very nervous about sleep training, but it was a very gentle approach and worked amazingly. If you’re thinking about going to the Mummy and Daddy sleep consultant, we would definitely recommend!

We contacted Chris when I was on my knees with sleep deprivation. My 10 month old baby had been waking 1-2 hourly since she was 4 months old and I was co-sleeping to survive. I was sure I didn't want to try any sort of cry it out type training. Chris was supportive throughout the process, which was really tough in parts, but by night 5 we were down from 10 wakes a night to 2 wakes. Now at the end of the 3 weeks she either sleeps through or wakes once for a feed. It has been life-changing for us both. We have our evenings back and I'm a much better Mum during the day because I'm not dying of sleep deprivation! If you're thinking about it....just do it. You won't regret it.

Sleep FAQ’s

What does a children's sleep consultant actually do?

A good sleep consultant will change your life – it’s as simple as that. They will identify what changes you need to make to your child’s routine, give you the right plan to help your child self-settle and be responsive to any changes that are required during the support period.

Just have a look at our reviews – we set up this business to change family’s lives, and we do it every single day. We wouldn’t change it for the world.

How do you sleep train a baby?

There are many different ways to sleep train a baby. We focus on a much more gentle approach with our methods and if you are thinking about doing it without a sleep consultant supporting you one-one-one, we would highly recommend our online course. It will give you the structure to achieve what you want, in a more gentle way, in around 10 to 14 days.

Do you use Crying It Out or the Ferber Method?

No, we do not use these methods or any other methods where you leave your child to cry on their own to sleep. We always follow a gentle method of sleep training.

Which SLEEP TRAINING method do you use?

We use a mix of different sleep training methods which all involve a gentle approach.

What is gentle sleep training?

Gentle sleep training is where you are generally with your baby providing support during the change you are making to their ability to settle to sleep. Non-gentle approaches include the Crying It Out or Ferber Methods, neither of which we use in our online courses or 1:1 programmes.

when should you start sleep training a baby?

We begin our programmes from 5 months. Many sleep consultants do it from 6 months for two reasons: 1. The baby will have started weaning and they believe that no night feeds are then required; and 2. Babies can be left independently from 6 months according to The Lullably Trust and many sleep consultants use Crying It Out or Controlled Crying methods where the baby will be left on their own.

We start from 5 months as we do not believe that night feeds should be stopped at 6 months and believe this should be a baby-led decision. Also, with our gentle approach, you don’t need to leave your baby to help them self-settle.

Do you sleep train toddlers? Or just babies?

We work with up to 4 year olds, though have also worked with 5 and 6 year olds in the past, depending on the issue. Whilst toddlers can be a little more difficult to change because they are often in their own bed and can leave it, the increased communication and language they have can offset that challenge. Never think your child is too old to change their sleep habits. Our 2-4 year online course or our 1:1 coaching programmes can help you change something you probably think is impossible.

How long does your sleep training programmes take to work?

The timeframe is different for every baby but we usually see changes in the babies we work with in as little as 5-7 nights. From starting to having a baby who self-settles, sleeps most of the night and has good naps is usually around 2 weeks.

Can you guarantee it will work for my child?

Whilst there is never any guarantee, we firmly believe that if you work with us one-on-one or buy our online course, commit to our approach and principles and be consistent with the guidance, you will see the improvements that your whole family needs. Our Google reviews are testament of this.
