Testimonials

My work as a baby sleep consultant gives me the most amazing feedback and a lot of the time I am helping give parents back their sanity, sleep, confidence and sometimes even relationships.
Parenting is hard, and full of judgements, so to be that person to help a client create positive change for their whole family is such a special role.
The messages I receive at the end of working with a client are just wonderful.

  • Finishing off a week of Birthday fun with some family time this weekend 💙 . . Funny how such a special first birthday is so overwhelming in so many ways. For me it has been the emotion of it all - I’m so happy and lucky to have a healthy little boy turning one to celebrate.... . . But it also felt like a goodbye to the baby years and wondering if I can cling on to those memories, and if so for how long. Can he be a baby just for one more cuddle? One more snuggly squeeze? I’m desperate to find the time to write some memories down before life and old age takes them away from me! . . Those of you with older ones tell me that you never stop feeling this either. Just another reminder then to treasure each memory as much as possible and be as mindful you can 💙 . . #babydays #milestones #familytime #oneyearold #toddler #toddlerlife #firstbirthday #baby #mummy #mindfulness #mindfulparenting #mindfulmoments #newmum #parenting #parenthood
  • Let's stop striving to be perfect and be kinder to ourselves. 💗⠀ ⠀ I know I am guilty of this for sure… feeling bad if I don’t cook the best homemade meal one day, missing bath time, not being around 24 hours a day 7 days a week. ⠀ ⠀ But there are a million things I do each week that make me a good mother as does everyone else too. ⠀ ⠀ Hold on to the small things and don’t let the seemingly bigger things worry you. It makes for a better, stress free parenting experience. 💗⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #MindfulParenting #PositiveParenting #GentleParenting #Parenting #ParentingTips #ParentCoach #InspirationalQuote #InspirationalParenting
  • "Father Christmas is watching....!!!!" - who's caught themselves saying that to their toddler this week?! 😆⠀ ⠀ If this isn't working the good news is that due to popular demand I've scheduled another date for my #ToddlerBehaviourWorkshop. It covers all things "Toddler" from #Tantrums to Teatimes and everything in between.⠀ ⠀ The workshop is on 4 December at 7.30pm in #Wandsworth and suitable for parents with children aged 9 months through to 3 years - they always sell out QUICKLY so head over to the website (link in bio) to book.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #Toddler #ToddlerLife #Parenting #ParentingTips #ParentCoach #MumLife #ParetingWorkshop #TerribleTwos #Threenager #TheParentAndBabyCoach
  • I am a huge fan of #comforters and Rupert just loves his little snuggly. 💙 It helps him recognise when it is time to sleep and means that in different environments he feels safe and secure knowing his little friend is in his hand.⠀ ⠀ I often introduce comforters with clients when changing sleep patterns – maybe replacing a dummy, feeding to sleep or co-sleeping. There are lots of wonderful brands out there, some of my favourite include @merinokids @jellycat_official and @adenandanais.⠀ ⠀ #TopTip – don’t forget to have a few to rotate – one for the wash, one for buggy sleeps and one in the cot. If you have different animals too, baby wont get used to just the one (although ultimately they will probably choose their fave once they're big enough!) 💤⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #BabySleep #ToddlerSleep #SleepTraining #SleepHabits #SleepTips #SleepRoutine #SleepShaping #SleepConsultant #GentleParenting #Parenting #ParentingTips
  • When a baby is born, if you run your hand very lightly over his skull you will feel some soft spots under the scalp. ⠀ ⠀ These are places where the plates of the skull are not quite fixed together yet and are open. As baby grows and develops these will close up but to begin with it is important to make sure they're not poked and prodded.⠀ ⠀ A baby who is dehydrated will have sunken fontanels which is something to look for if baby is ever sick or unwell.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #NewBorn #NewMum #Baby #BabyCare #MumLife #Instamums #Parenting #ParentCoach #MindfulParenting #GentleParenting #ParentingTips #SleepConsultant

  • One whole year of Mummying and the most common question I have had is whether I have “practised what i teach”....the answer would be yes! Rupert is no different to any baby that I have worked with (other than being my own!) and was in a good routine from an early age. Granted we had reflux and food allergies to confuse us along the way so it wasn’t always straight forward, but it didn’t mean my approach changed and if anything, it reassured me that you really can have a good sleeper even with reflux as long as it is under control. . . So what else have I learnt in a year of being Mummy? . . 1) That you are always tired EVEN if your baby sleeps through the night. The emotional energy involved in loving a child and bringing them up is crazy! . . 2) That admin becomes impossible - quotes for the house become bottom of the list and there is always something that doesn’t get done... Life becomes one big list. . . 3) That to have a full time job and a child means basically virtually no self care whatsoever - something I’m working on but getting that balance is HARD. Somethings got to give. . . 4) That your relationship is even more important once baby arrives and it is totally worth leaving your baby occasionally for date nights and to spend time together. Behind all the tiredness and crazy going on’s, there is a reason you’re together and it’s worth working hard to keep that going. . . 5) That no matter how tired or emotional you are, or what sort of argument you have had or rubbish kind of day, there is literally nothing better in the world that a squeeze from your baby. Best. Thing. Ever. . . And finally, that clothes no longer belong to you and instead belong to the snot monster that seems to get onto even the cleanest, nearest item of clothing within hours of wearing it. . . What did you learn along the way? . . #mummy #baby #parenting #babyboy #toddler #parenthood #parentlife #becomingmummy #snotmonster #postnatal #postpartum #thingsivelearnt
  • 🌟Happy 1st Birthday to our gorgeous boy Rupert bear🌟 . . I always wanted to be a Mummy, but it’s something extra super special to be a Mummy to you 💕 . . Here’s to a whole year of adventures and another one to come. There’s no one I’d rather spend my days with. . . #babyboy #happybirthday #parenting #parenthood #oneyearold #mummy #toddler
  • 🌟Birth Story🌟 . . On the eve of little mans first birthday I have finally found the time to write Rupert’s birth story which was kicking off exactly this time last year...😱 . . Reflecting back on what at the time was a fairly traumatic birth for various reasons...it took me a good few months to “get over” what happened and this included a lot of tears when hearing other people’s “better” birth stories as well as sitting down and re-running it so many times with my husband too. . . The reality is though, I did get the birth I wanted in the end and that’s what matters. Just the journey to that end point was tougher than I had imagined and I felt underprepared for how an induction would go. I don’t feel there is anything natural about an induction birth and in the future I won’t opt for this again unless my baby is in any sort of danger. I know some people have induction births and are fine, I just wasn’t one of those. . . Over the last year at times I have had comments suggesting it’s not worth preparing for birth as there’s nothing you can do and “do I regret doing some much prep?” when I ended up with an induction anyway. I will ALWAYS stand by and believe that both mindful birthing and hypnobirthing got me through an experience that otherwise was very close to ending in an emergency c-section. Of course there are many situations you can’t control, but I did feel an element of control just towards the very end when it seemed like so much had been taken away from me and that was down to the tools that I had learnt to keep focused and just keep going. . . So this is a blog (link in bio) for anyone interested in a good old birth story, for anyone who is toying with the idea of hypnobirthing or using mindfulness as or alongside pain relief and also for anyone who had a traumatic experience and has come out the other side smiling. Birth doesn’t always go to plan, we all know that, but education about types of birth and most importantly for me NOT being scared of what’s to come in a birth is hugely important. . . #birthstory #inductionbirth #naturalbirth #hypnobirthing #mindfulbirthing #birth #induction #babyboy #parenting #pregnancy #mummy #parenthood

  • I recently helped out a client with a four month old who has been waking regularly at night and not going back to sleep from 2am for weeks. He also had never napped alone for the first 16 weeks of his life.⠀ ⠀ We started making some changes to his sleep and it went very well and now they are on their journey to a more contented and well rested household. ⠀ ⠀ It was an emotional one as mum admitted that she hadn't enjoyed being a mummy so far, but hopes to enjoy it more moving forwards for the rest of her maternity leave as she has more energy and is less sleep deprived to be able to cope with the demands of a new baby.⠀ ⠀ It's something that I see and hear all too often, is this something you can relate to as well? I think it's so important that we share these experiences and particularly what you did to find help...💞⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #FirstTrimester #Postpartum #NewMum #Newborn #PostNatal #BabySleep #ToddlerSleep #SleepTraining #SleepHabits #SleepTips #SleepRoutine #SleepShaping #SleepConsultant #GentleParenting #Parenting #ParentingTips
  • It’s a complete #MumJuggle at the moment - #teething, bugs, not enough childcare to cover work commitments... 😣⠀ ⠀ But then you have those cuddly moments that just make everything worth it 🥰 ... the not managing to get through the day’s jobs; the never ending admin list; and the lack of clean clothes because you’ve not even managed to put a wash on this week and everything is covered in snot. 🤷🏼‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Team work little man - we’ll get there 💪🏻⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #MumJuggle #Immunity #MumAdmin #MumLife #Mummying #MumBoss #Parenting #MindfulParenting #WinterGerms #Teething #WorkingMummy #Parenthood #Cuddles
