Katie Forsythe - owner of The Baby Sleep Company

Owner & Certified Child Sleep Consultant

Katie is Australia's leading Certified Child Sleep Consultant and has worked with tens of thousands of parents worldwide over the last decade to improve their children's sleep. Katie believes passionately in supporting families not only to find a solution to their child's sleep issues, but also one that they feel comfortable following through with. There is no 'one size fits all' approach to sleep; each family has their story and that story will shape how we move forward towards blissful blessed sleep. As a mother of three children, Katie understands the extreme highs and lows of parenting and is guaranteed to be completely judgement free! She really has seen it all and NOTHING phases her when it comes to current sleep habits. She feels strongly that families should never feel bullied or blamed and cajoled into doing something with their children that they do not feel comfortable with and she is a vocal advocate for vulnerable tired mamas.

Katie lives in Brisbane, Queensland with her three adorable (and well slept!) children.

Baby Sleep Consultants Who Listen

There are many methods of sleep training out there that can provide great results but we recognise that no one textbook routine may be the best fit for your family. Katie believes in getting to know you, your parenting style and your little one and offering solutions that you are comfortable will fit within your parenting style. Previously a single mother of three small children, Katie has walked thousands of miles in your tired shoes and has seen everything! She is 100% judgement-free with a focus on offering guidance and reassurance where needed and will happily carefully explain a sleep training program that best suits your lifestyle, beliefs and parenting style. While the process may differ from familiy to family the result will be the same – a happy and content baby and a peaceful household enjoying restorative sleep.
