Night Nanny Service
This provides parents of newborn infants with 1-2 night of respite per week. For breastfed babies I will care for the infant between feeds, taking baby to mum with as little disturbance as possible, and then collect him when the feed is finished. I will then wind and settle the baby until the next feed. For bottle fed babies I can take care of the baby throughout the night allowing parents chacnce to have a full night's sleep.
This service is for parents of older infants and young children, who have not yet leant the art of settling to, and staying asleep during the night, The service aims to assist the child to learn good sleeping habits and to support the parents during the process. The parents will also be advised on how to continue to encourage good sleeping habits in their child.
The service entails an inital assessment of the problems, the development of a plan of action for the parents, and should they wish, support in the home during the first 1-2 nights of the sleep training programme.

All services can be tailored to indivdual family needs.
