Sleep and Routines
When sleep goes wrong it can be disrupting to the whole family and doesn't just affect your nights but also the daytime for the whole family.
With so many different opinions on when and how to sleep train it's hard to know where to turn to. Let me help you guide your baby or young child into better sleeping habits using only gentle sleep training methods, to help all the family have a better nights sleep and a more productive day.
Though sleep training can't be started until they are 6 months old, getting into good sleeping habits can start from birth. Learn about sleep cycles, how much sleep does your baby need and assisting with developing the pattern of day and night. For older children help to transform your night into one where everyone in the house sleeps through.

Night Nannying and Maternity Nursing
Hiring a night nanny helps the parents get some much needed sleep and gently guides your baby into build good sleep habits that last a lifetime. I usually arrive at 9pm and leave at 7am as many nights a week as you need. During these hours I feed, change and help your baby sleep allowing you to have a restful night.
As a maternity nurse I will assist you 24hrs a day for between 2-6 days a week.

Is your baby constantly crying and won't settle?
Baby doesn't want to eat? Possible reflux but you just aren't sure.
Older siblings not impressed at the new arrival?
Don't worry, you may feel your the only person with this issue but I bet I will have assessed and guided parents through the same issue before, and have many tricks up my sleeve to help with a whole host of problems.
There are many different reasons for families having difficulties and parents should not be frightened or feel bad asking for help from a professional. Sometimes problems are very easy to solve and having someone emotionally removed from the situation come in and help can be just what's needed, a fresh set of eyes! Sometimes an issue can be changed in a matter of minutes, other times it may take a few days while new routines or behaviour are established.
Call me for an initial chat, from there we can go forward with a home consult for a few hours or a few days depending on how much support is required.
From £25 per hour or £300 24hr
Twins, Triplets and More
Going for your scan and being told you're expecting more than one baby can come as a bit of a shock, and not only for first time parents.
I have experience with twins and triplets, from birth to school age, and the many extra challenges multiple children bring. Having helped with over 45 sets of multiples I've got lots of tricks up my sleeve to guide you through the first few years.
Getting into a routine with multiples is an excellent way to establish both parents and babies getting the right amount of sleep and feeds, and keeps everyone in control. I can assist with feeds, sleep, reflux, routines, behaviour in older babies and toddlers.
I offer as much or as little help as you want, please call to discuss and we can work out a plan to suit your needs and budget. It's amazing what can be established from a 2hr consult.

Have a wedding to go to?
Need a few days break without the children?
Moving house and could do without the children doing the unpacking?
I offer proxy parenting where the parents go away for a one off night up to a full week, and I look after your children in your own home doing everything you would normally be doing.
I have proxy parented for many families from 5 days with 12 week old twins who's parents had a wedding to go to in Tuscany, a week with a family's 4 children (4 year triplets and a 6 yr old) who were moving house, to a family with teenagers whose parents were going on an adults only ski trip.
With most proxy parenting roles the families got more than they bargained for as I sorted routines, sleep and behavioural issues during their time away.
