Who Are The Mummy & Daddy Sleep Consultant?

We’re Dani and Chis McFadden, the UK’s leading infant sleep consultants (and husband and wife!), helping families get the sleep they deserve.

After months of sleepless nights with our first baby, we were at our breaking point as parents. Unhappy in ourselves, as a couple and as a family, we sought help from a sleep consultant and it transformed our lives. 

Not only did our baby start sleeping soundly, but he was happier and healthier. We also became the parents we always thought we would be; happy, patient and calm.

Now, we’re passionate about helping other families achieve the same sleep success and even use our extensive experience to run The Sleep Consultant Academy, where we train others to become sleep consultants.

An investment you won’t regret

We don’t mean to blow our own trumpets but we’re among the most experienced sleep consultants around, and we believe we’re the best there is. We also own and run a sleep consultant training academy where we train and mentor other sleep consultants in the industry. We want to work with families who are really committed to making a change, so we offer up to 3 weeks’ full support (most sleep consultants offer 2)., which is why our fees for the one-to-one plans might seem a little higher than some. 

Given our experience and success rate, however, we know no parent ever regrets the financial and time investment, when you can all enjoyand after all, you can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep to improve or the health and wellbeing of your family.

Dani has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology covering infant development, and Chris is the first qualified male infant sleep consultant in the UK & Ireland, possibly even the world. 

More importantly, we are simply Mummy and Daddy to our three amazing boys: Teddy, Rafferty and Malachy. You can find out more about us here.

Our experience as parents, coupled with our expertise, empowers us to guide families towards a calmer, happier sleep routine. We’re committed to helping you navigate the challenges of infant sleep and experience the transformative power of a well-rested household.

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 our own method Comforting Through Change™.

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.
