Expert advice for
Parenting is the hardest job in the world and comes without a manual
From birth and into the toddler years, I offer expert advice and support on all areas of parenting. With over 20 years experience working with babies and young children I have solutions to any issues you may have, whether it's as simple as how to change a nappy or as challenging as sleep training triplets.
I offer one to one sessions or group workshops on sleep and routines, first few months, twins, triplets or more, breast/bottle feeding and weaning, toddler sleep and behaviour. I am based in the South West of England but willing to travel.
"Claire has a unique skill set - she is highly experienced yet has more energy than anyone else I know. She is patient and sympathetic, she will listen to a comprehensive hand over and respects the parents' approach to discipline and routine. She will go that extra mile, even tackle bad habits that you may mention, while you are away.
I would not hesitate to recommend Claire with regards to a proxy parenting role. She has an excellent reputation within the multiples community, both through word of mouth, and her professional exposure as a well established childcare consultant."

"We were having trouble with our 9 month old waking up to 5 times a night. Claire was recommended to me, we called had a 30 minute chat where she gave me a few things to try and that very night my daughter slept through for the first time in months."

“When my husband and I brought our twins home at 4 days old we had no idea how hard it was going to be; my husband has a brain injury which is severely impacted by fatigue and that, combined with the unique challenges of multiple newborns, soon found us in crisis. I found Claire's number at 3 in the morning after trawling the internet desperately looking for help. Claire came out that afternoon for an initial consultation and immediately removed a great deal of our anxiety and helped us to come up with a sensible plan which included night nannying several nights a week for the next few months."
