Hi, I’m Vickie and I am a certified Sleep Nanny consultant as well as a qualified Nanny with over 20 years experience. My passion is and always has been helping families with children. I am also blessed to be a Mummy to girl boy twins.
Nothing can prepare you for parenthood and all the emotions that come flooding in along with it. Tiredness is one of the biggest challenges that come from being a parent but it doesn’t have to be. Sleep is a vital part of a child’s cognitive, emotional and physical development and overall health. Sleep has such an important part in our daily wellbeing, it helps build our immune system as well as helping with our memory and giving our brain a detox of unwanted chemicals overnight.
Even with over 20 years experience with children of all ages I was not prepared for how sleep deprivation would affect me once my twins arrived. With multiple night wakings, very little quality napping and early rising, I felt as if I spent the first 9 months of their lives feeding or trying to get them to sleep. I vividly remember sitting feeding my son at 10pm one night and not knowing how I was going to get through the feed, my whole body hurt and I could hardly stay awake. This scared me as I was putting my child in danger and it was at this
point I knew it was time to make some changes. With some gentle and mindful sleep training methods we were able to change our twins sleep habits and within a very short space of time we had fantastic sleepers and we were happy, rested and the contented family we had dreamed of being.
Settling to sleep is a learnt skill and due to all children having different temperaments not all of them can pick this skill up naturally, instead they need a little help. This is where my knowledge and expertise comes in to help you. I create a bespoke and personalised package for each family, not one child’s sleep needs are the same. I will work closely alongside you to help make the perfect package. I will then be there to guide you through every step of the way, leaving you and your child with invaluable sleep skills.
