We were suffering from sleepless nights and days. Because my little one didnt want me to leave nursing or swinging. We didn’t have any routine at all and when we put him down into his crib, he was waking up after 15-30 minutes. And suddenly i said to myself we needed to do something and found Brenda, who is an expert of routines. From the first day, my 6 week old son started to get into the routine. Sometime it was difficult for me because he was crying for a while but he got used to the routine and he can sleep longer and at the end he s happy. I really appreciate Brenda because she was on the other side of the phone 24/7. Thank you so much.

Thank you Burcu. I am glad everything is progressing in the right direction.
Regards to your family.

Brenda supported us as night nurse on the days she covered for her sister Sarah (who was otherwise night nurse to our new born baby girl). She was gentle, confident and relaxed in her handling of the baby, and was extremely knowledgeable and experienced in various baby issues, with good advice to offer. A thorough professional, we would highly recommend her to all new parents!

Thank you very much for the review.
A very happy new year to you and all the family!

Brenda is absolutely wonderful in providing guidance for a structured routine that works instantaneously on children for sleep training. She has a very simple military approach with regard to timings and the routine is presented very clearly on one A4 sheet of paper so that it’s easy to read, and it really does work - infants respond very well to it.

After one 3 hour visit in the day the routine was implemented immediately, the night nanny told not to come and since then we have not needed a night nanny once as my twins were sleeping through the night for 11 hours by the 2nd evening! The routine also helped remove any fussiness when drinking milk and weaning, and also cleared the wind and reflux issues entirely that my twins were experiencing without having to use any medication. I am so grateful to have found Brenda on childcare.co.uk, and highly recommend her as she has allowed us to have our nights back with good sleep and thus a far more harmonious home for all of us with raising twins.

Thank you E, it was lovely working with you and all your family.

We had been struggling in an unpredictable cycle of napping and feeding, making it incredibly hard to make social plans (or even leave the house some days!).

We had tried starting to follow a routine based on the books we had read with mixed success, but a half-day visit from Brenda really helped give us the confidence to follow through with it. We saw the results almost immediately and now have a much more content little girl.

During our visit Brenda quickly established the issues and gave us practical advice we could follow. After the initial visit Brenda was very responsive to our follow up questions, which we really appreciated.

Keep up the good training and baby S will always nap and eat well 🙂

We found Brenda on childcare.co.uk and struck gold! Brenda supported us closely for the first few months of our little boys life as a night nurse, breast feeding advice, routine planning, and most invaluably gave us confidence to dive into parenting, which being our first child, was a huge unknown! Brenda is incredibly professional, experienced, knowledgable, and dare I say it - always right, because her experience of multiple years leaves few baby habits unseen!
Brenda has also looked after our son for days when I kept in touch with work and they had a great time. I didn't worry about our son in Brenda's care for a second and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone - in fact, I have already recommended her to several friends, particularly for 'routine setting' help who now share our gratitude and admiration of her fantastic work, and sleep results.
