My philosophy has always been and always will be that a happy parent results in a happy baby. I’d like to make a start on this blog by pointing out the detrimental effects of sleep deprivation in parents. I don’t think it’s selfish to want …Read More
ARE YOU FEELING A LITTLE DESPERATE?
Feeling sleep deprived and you can’t figure out how to help your baby or child sleep? If you feel like you are struggling from day to day, call me to find out how I can get you on the right track and help you enjoy the process of parenting.
YOUR BABY WON’T STOP CRYING?
If your infant seems to cry a lot and is fractious whatever you do, I can easily determine the cause of this. With my gentle, effective solutions, you will find your baby not only cries less but is much happier and more content.
IS YOUR BABY OR TODDLER DUMMY DEPENDENT?
I have no issue with dummies until they become a problem. If you are up and down like a yo-yo all night, plugging them back in, it’s time to get my help to break this habit. I can show you fast and effective ways to remove the dummy from being a sleep association.
STRUGGLING WITH A FUSSY FEEDER?
Whether you have a baby who snack feeds at regular intervals night and day, which is problematic when it comes to establishing great sleeping patterns, a toddler or child who is picky about what they eat, constantly demanding snacks, won’t stay at the table, and you generally find mealtimes stressful. Or you find you are cooking several different meals to accommodate everyone, I have a plethora of ideas, tips and solutions to resolve these common issues.
HAS YOUR TODDLER OR CHILD GOT INTO BAD SLEEPING HABITS?
If your little one is waking too early, or has become dependent on you to get to sleep. Maybe they’ve decided that your bed is now theirs! If you rock, pace, jiggle, feed or cuddle your child to sleep, I can show you how to teach them to feel safe and secure and sleep independently in their own cot or bed.
ARE YOU CONFUSED BY CONFLICTING ADVICE?
With the increased availability of information via the Internet, alongside well-meaning advice from friends and family, it can be tough to determine which path is the right one for you and your child. In my experience, what works for one family, does not necessarily work for another. At our consultation, we can decide the best approach for you in your given circumstances. The approach must be one that you are comfortable and confident with, so you can carry it through. Therefore my advice is always manageable and step by step with as much support as you need to make the changes successfully.

If you’ve found yourself at the stage where you’re feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and out of ideas about how to break the cycle or where to turn? I can offer you practical solutions that will work in your particular situation, thereby averting prolonged sleep deprivation and relieving one of the main pressures of parenthood.
As a certified infant sleep specialist, I have been trained to holistically look at a family’s entire circumstance in order to evaluate what methods and approaches would be best suited to solve your infants sleep issues. Combining my own 25 years of experience as a Maternity nurse, nanny and sleep consultant, along with different strategies from baby sleep experts, I can design a sleep program to fit your family’s specific needs.
Guidance and advice for babies, newborn to 12 months involves analysing sleeping patterns, awake windows, feeding, sleeping environment, habits and temperament. During a consultation we discuss any history of trauma at birth, underlying health issues, or post natal mental and emotional well being for parents. My role is supportive and comprehensive.
When addressing sleep issues for toddlers and children, we’ll take a thorough look at routine, habits, nutrition, exercise, sleeping environment, and also behaviour. We all know about oppositional defiance, and how developmentally toddlers start to assert themselves, it’s what they do best! I am keen to help you understand how closely behaviour during the day is often linked to resistance at bedtime and or through the night. With toddlers and children, I look at emotional coaching, self esteem building, and give you new, effective strategies on how to balance implementing healthy boundaries and expectations of behaviour, in a supportive and empathetic way, so you maintain bonding and attachment. Whether you are a new parent, have a toddler or child up to the age of 5, my sleep training techniques are specifically tailored to each case. There’s no one solution because each child is unique, but with my help and guidance, I will soon have your little one sleeping soundly, and you’ll have your nights back! I offer online consultancy via FaceTime, Zoom and Whatsapp to families in London, UK and worldwide. Consultations are followed up with a detailed personalised plan via email, and either two or four weeks support with unlimited phone calls, WhatsApp, texts and emails. Further support is available when needed on a weekly basis, or a one off call to iron out a small issue. I often support families from birth to school age. My expertise doesn’t stop at sleep. If you are experiencing any challenges with your infant, or would simply like some support, and confidence boosting reassurance. I’m happy to advise on anything baby, toddler and child related. From routines, effective feeding patterns, product recommendation, weaning, development, travel tips, potty training, difficulties at meal times, and strategies on how to improve behaviour...I cover it all!
Claire came to my rescue when my youngest, Oscar, was only a few weeks old. He was not a good feeder or sleeper, which was a shock to the system, as my first was! Oscar was diagnosed with bad reflux and a suspected cow’s milk allergy, but once he was well established on the right medication I contacted Claire as he needed help getting his sleep back on track. She was such a support to me, always gave me excellent advice throughout and supported me with sleep training over an extended period, as bad habits had been established because of his condition and my exhaustion! This was no mean feat. Oscar is now a brilliant sleeper, but I couldn’t have done it without Claire’s help and I couldn’t recommend her more highly!Jo / London

"Infant Sleep Solutions came to help me with my little girl at 4 months. Our little one was not sleeping or feeding well and generally we were both tired, irritable and unhappy. Within 3 days we had a transformation and our baby was sleeping through the night – it was really quite unbelievable!! She is now 5 months old and loves the routine Claire devised especially for us taking into account our problems at the time. Claire really listened and was gentle in her approach, but was firm and confident in what to do. Which is really what I needed as I felt so knocked down in confidence at the time! I would highly recommend Claire to any family, she really is a wonder woman and I can’t thank her enough!"Jess / Winchester

"Claire Ball is there nothing you can’t cure when it comes to sleepless nights?!! Our 11 month old decided that she wanted to play for 3 hours in the middle of the night, this went on for a few months. A close friend recommended Claire’s services to us and we never looked back. Claire’s advice was really clear, honest and supportive. It was great to have when you spend a lot of your time as a parent guessing. Within 4 nights of our consultation and my very tired husband and I implementing Claire’s plan, our little lady has started to sleep through the night. I can’t thank Claire enough for our nights of sleep back and a much happier baby girl.”Kate / Buckinghamshire

"Infant Sleep Solutions turned our lives around! My second child defied everything I had successfully done with the first regarding sleeping, and 6 months in I was beside myself with tiredness. Following our initial consultation Claire’s recommendations dramatically improved the situation almost immediately. My daughter is dummy free, sleeping through the night and the whole family (including her) are happy. Claire’s manner is calm, authoritative and most importantly kind, what I thought would be a traumatic process was dealt with in a fast, super professional and personal manner. At all times I felt comfortable and understood what we were doing and why. I only wished I had called her sooner, I cannot recommend her highly enough.”Emily / London

"Having been advised to demand feed and told you can’t get young babies into a routine, I soon felt exhausted to the point that I wasn’t enjoying the experience of being a new mum. My husband and I called infant sleep solutions and within days she had turned our lives around. Our son now feeds properly and most importantly we are all getting a good nights sleep. Thank you Claire”Lydia / London

"Infant Sleep Solutions is brilliant with young babies and children. She clearly has a way with them. She is also a good teacher, which was incredibly helpful, as we were both novices having never changed a nappy or fed a baby! We are most grateful to Claire for getting our baby into a good routine and laying the groundwork for her to grow into a happy, healthy and relaxed baby.”Karen / London
