A night nanny and baby sleep consultant, Brenda’s expertise is much in demand. Over her 30-year career she’s helped hundreds of new parents learn to cope – and enjoy – their precious newborns.
My speciality is sleep training, but working with babies and children encompasses many other childcare areas. One concern can often envelope another area of childcare. I provide help for mums who want to establish a routine, breastfeeding, poor eaters, inappropiate behaviour, weaning, and potty training.
I give a personal service which will meet the needs of your individual child. My approach is non fussy, clear and non judgemental. I look at the 'broader picture' to elliminate anything that could be hampering your child's sleep and give you the routine that is right for your child's stage of growth and development. I will always look ahead so you will have an assessment of your child now and beyond.
I sleeptrain children of all ages from babies upwards and will offer various options to overcome the difficulties. Please give me a call as a phone call can make a world of difference.
Hello, I’m a full-time night nanny and sleep consultant. I had two years of sleepless nights with my own son and if someone had given me some sleep advice I’d never have let it go on for so long. There’s no need for a child's sleep pattern to be continuously disrupted, and once sleeping improves you’ll see such a difference in your child and your own life!
I have been working with children for over 32 years and have been to well over 1000 families with sleep issues. I enjoy my job and always endeavour to give whatever it takes to come to a successful result.
