Download the 7 sleep secrets that your mid-wife won't tell you
Welcome to Sanity Nanny, offering effective solutions to give you the confidence to create a happy and healthy family life.
Parenting is one of the toughest jobs for which we receive no training. Children are wonderful when things go well but they are also full of surprises when you least expect it. Family time is precious and if being super busy is the norm for you, you will want to get the most of those first few years without experiencing daily struggle and sleepless nights. I offer intuitive, practical support and child focused solutions to parents like you, who are seeking more confidence with childcare dilemmas and desire time saving tools, so together you can all enjoy a healthy, happy, fun-filled family life.
You can tap into my 25 years of experience as a nanny, maternity nurse and Montessori teacher. All coaching and sleep techniques can be tailored to your family’s individual needs.
Family harmony and childcare matters are important especially in the formative years 0-5. As a certified parenting mentor, I bring a breath of fresh air along with tried and tested techniques, that will leave you gasping, as you restore faith in your own abilities and turn stressful moments into pure bliss with your new baby/child. After many years of UK and international experience I can support you with:
Pre-birth Preparations / Early Parenthood:
Call me old fashioned, yes, you can buy all the parenting and baby books, search google, ask friends but you’ll still not find the answers to:
If only your son/daughter came with a tag that deciphered their wants and needs, and you knew which button to press for success! Hint- when you have the ‘right tools’, child insights and understand child psychology, life is much easier and you soon ‘get’ your child. Let’s not play the ‘wish and hope’ game anymore, let’s banish your worries- allow me to teach you
Understanding and Aligning Parenting Styles:
This is a ‘biggie’! Your parenting style says a lot about you and it unconsciously feeds messages to your child, so this is one area that you will definitely want to focus on and get right, ideally from day one.
This subject is what my 1-2-1 private clients learn most about, as it helps to give your child a firm foundation and a head start in life. Yes, your child’s future success lies in your hands, and boy what a responsibility it is. What’s worse though, is when you have no idea how you are impacting or upsetting your child or why they continue to wake during the night and are well beyond 6-7 months old.
To help innocent Mums and Dads I have developed four different parenting styles, these are the Kangaroo, Cat, Tiger and Dolphin. There are some overlaps, but I wonder which one are you? When you have this all worked out, your parenting path will be a smooth ride. Ok you will have the odd bump here and there, however it is the key to you feeling happy, successful and enjoying a perfectly balanced work and family life. Life cannot get much better than being genuinely proud of your delightfully entertaining, co-operative, calm baby/children.
Juggling a professional life and spending quality time with your children is the key to a fun, fulfilled home life. You never get a second chance with childhood, so you will want to start now and get things right, for you and your child’s sake.
Manage Life events/Challenging Times:
Sometimes life throws us a new challenge that can throw us off course. Having someone by your side that won’t judge you, who is there to simply listen and provide emotional support with an understanding of your situation, will help you feel ‘less alone’. No matter what you are dealing with, there is always someone that can ease things and give you the personal guidance and hope you seek. Together we can create a plan of action and discuss your next steps, whilst keeping family tension/stress to an acceptable level and help you overcome fear, overwhelm or anxiety.
Another baby / Returning to work Mum / House / Job move
Any of these situations can cause stress at home, particularly when you have little ones and a busy life to manage, having someone to ‘lean on’ who’s got your interests at heart can help provide a different perspective, (if needed) and will soon have you feeling back in control of life again.
These circumstances are never easy. Where do you start, what do you tell the children, what will upset them when you separate or live in different homes? Children, including babies are more sensitive to what’s going on at home than you probably realise. By handling things well, you will reduce their anxiety and keep sleepless nights/bad behaviour down to a minimum and learn how to re-establish yourself and gradually regain your identity as a single/divorced parent. Over time, having tools and new strategies will build confidence and keep your children feeling safe and happy.
Coping with Baby Loss / Death / Depression / Anxiety
Having gone through these myself and supported clients through difficult and dark times is never easy. For some, it can feel hopeless, each day may fill you with dread or fear. You are not going crazy though, you will find new strength and gradually find your way back to health and happiness.
No-one can feel your pain unless they have experienced the same or similar. Drugs may help but are not a good long-term solution. When you have someone who understands, accepts you are doing your best and can take some of the pressure off, you will feel a cloud lift.
Life will seem lighter and more joyful again. Time is a great healer together with healthy food, both will help take you back to your former self. You will gain relief by learning to adapt to your situation and slowly find the joy in life again, as you hold on to those crucial family relationships.
