Infant Sleep Consultants
Does It Feel Like You’ve Tried Everything?
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. I wasn’t enjoying motherhood at times, and I wasn’t the best version of myself.
But I sought help and it was the best decision I ever made for him, for me and for my whole family.
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.
Formerly The Daddy Sleep Consultant®, 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 academy that teaches other sleep consultants in the industry. As we said, this is something we are incredibly passionate about.
Sleep deprivation is debilitating. It impacts your physical health, your mental health and it takes away that zest in life. You’re meant to be enjoying life with your baby but you probably don’t have that happiness at the moment.
You may feel like you’ve tried everything already so what can we do differently? That comes from our unique approach Comforting Through Change™ which we will use to transform your life in just a few days.

Who Are The Mummy & Daddy Sleep Consultant?
One of the country’s leading infant sleep consultants, we are a family-owned business helping families get the sleep they all deserve.
We started this after seeking help to get our own child to sleep. After 6 months of no sleep, things had taken its toll and we weren’t happy. We weren’t happy as parents; we weren’t happy as a couple; we just weren’t happy full stop. We were putting on these brave faces for our child and for others, but the reality was that we were broken.
Seeking help from a sleep consultant was the single most impactful decision we’ve made as parents. We suddenly had a sleeping child, who was happier and healthier. We also became the parents we always thought we would be,: happy, patient and calm.
This led us becoming sleep consultants ourselves, and then more recently, onto training sleep consultants via The Sleep Consultant Academy.
Dani has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology covering infant development and Chris, born in Donegal, is the first qualified male infant sleep consultant in the UK & Ireland. More importantly though, we are simply Mummy and Daddy to our three amazing boys: Teddy, Rafferty and Malachy. You can find out more about us here.
To help with your child’s sleep routine, we have a range of sleep plans covering online plans to our fully supportive, one-to-one-plan.

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.
