Sleep Nannies – Home Visits

There is no single solution and every family is unique. I do not claim to have any revolutionary or unique technique up my sleeve, but I do have techniques and strategies that are well recognised and based on over 30 years practical experience, of which I will select and combine the most appropriate methods in a way that is right for you, your child and current situation.

What can I expect to happen during her visit?
Every single sleep, weaning or feeding programme that I implement is tailor-made. It takes into account not only your child’s history, personality and developmental stage but also your expectations and family dynamics.

2 or 5 Hour Visits (Zone A, B or C only)
I will discuss your usual routine and then go through with you a plan of action. I will always explain in detail and give a reason to justify my methods. On the 5 hour visit there will be further opportunity do discuss breastfeeding, formula feeding, weaning and diet, teething, potty training for older siblings, or anything else relating to your baby.

24 Hour Visit (Zones 1 or 2)
I will observe, as you take your baby through her usual mealtime, bath time and bedtime routine. I will then assist you, as you settle your baby to sleep for the night. Once baby is tucked up in bed, I will go through with you in detail how the problem began and explain her plan of action. I will always explain in detail and give a reason to justify my methods. I will then commence implementation of the programme and take over the first night time wakings, allowing you to sleep and recharge your batteries (only waking you if breastfeeding is required)

What will the following day involve?
This will be a time to reflect on the night before and for you to catch up on your baby’s progress. Discuss, evaluate and fine tune the routine for the following night. I can advise you of a suitable routine for the day also, which generally helps promote better sleeping habits during the night. There will also be plenty of opportunity do discuss breastfeeding, formula feeding, weaning and diet, teething, potty training for older siblings, or anything else relating to your baby.

48 Hour Visit (Zones 1 or 2)
I can take care of your baby during the afternoon of the second day  if you wish, so that you can rest. On the second night, I will go through the mealtime, bath time and bedtime with you. I may offer some direction. My advice will always make your life easier and help to promote confidence. I will then assist you during your baby’s wakeful times during the night. This time she will be directing you with clear instructions on how to teach your baby to settle back to sleep with the minimal of fuss. I will be guiding you through every step of the way. If you prefer, I can take care of your baby during her wakeful times on the second night too. This will allow you to get plenty of rest ready for the third night. I will will call you later during the day to make sure you feel confident and happy to embark on the third night by your self.  Once the routine is established your baby or toddler will be happy & content. You can then stop being exhausted & you can start to enjoy being a parent again.
