What To Expect From These Case Studies

Here’s a selection case studies from people who have experienced baby sleep problems with their children. In some cases, the names of the infants have been changed for privacy reasons. Within these baby sleep problem cases you will probably identify, recognised and empathise with many of the problems other parents have experienced.

Throughout these case studies you will notice that there are a couple of reoccurring themes:


Constant reassurance for the infant


The absence of Controlled Crying

Case Study: Conor & Katie

Conor, 1 year and 8 months old, and Katie, 4 years old, wake up frequently during the night and need assistance from parents to get back to sleep. This results in parents and children having to…


Case Study: James

Case Study: Eoin

Eoin, 17 months, has never been the best of sleepers. He suffered from Eczema which has now come under control. He was rocked to sleep until he was 5 months old and then his parents used…


Rewarding Positive Behaviour

Throughout these case studies you will see that I am firm believer in providing children with constant positive reassurance and rewarding positive behaviour. The use of star charts to measure progress and provide reward systems that encourage the positive sleep associations.

The Baby Sleep Academy philosophy does not use controlled crying techniques. While I do believe that controlled crying does work, I also believe that in some cases it can cause larger psychological issues which can be difficult to resolve.

The Baby Sleep Academy philosophy is based on you providing your child with the reassurance and comfort of a safe and secure environment which will enable them overcome their baby sleep problems.

Here is what Baby Sleep Academy customers had to say:

Hilda & Robbi

Hilda & Robbi

Before we met Edel were we completely exhausted and at our wits end, up every night at least 7 times with our son. Within about 10 days Dylan was happy in his cot and slept 12 hours straight! We couldn't speak more highly of Edel and she was such a fantastic person to deal with.*



Without Edel’s help and support I know I certainly wouldn’t be in a home with two very happy & content boys that sleep all night and thrive on their routine each day. She always understood how I felt. We would highly recommend Edel as a baby sleep consultant – she’s amazing!!*



I had no time to myself the entire day and despite being a new Mom and being told that this time was unpredictable I knew in my gut that it was wrong. We put our faith in Edel’s expertise in terms of sleep and we weren't disappointed. With the constant doubt we felt as new parents she was able to point us in the right direction.*
