I am a 31 year old full time Mum, cook & house cleaner. Until I had Noah I used to work in a cosy office 8am-4pm and spend my evening in the gym and doing exactly as I pleased. I couldn’t understand why my friends made such a big ordeal of going out shopping or coming to visit me because they had children. I used to think, how hard can it be! Now I understand exactly and I only have one child. I have made every mistake there is when it comes to Noah & sleeping and fully understand how hard it is to try and give a child boundaries & rules but I also now know how rewarding it is when a child wakes up happy & healthy from a good nights sleep.
I LOVE this website and how easy Wendy has made it to correct sleep problems that if not corrected can seem like they last an eternity. I am honored, and grateful to be using my experiences & Wendy’s techniques to help such a lovely group of Mum’s to get their Babies sleeping better and as a result, getting good nights sleep themselves.
Like Wendy, my cosy pre-baby existence came to an in 1999 when Isabella was born. Like so many parents I was exhausted, over-whelmed and more than anything had this huge urge to do everything absolutely right. This, coupled with a feeling of complete inadequacy, all added up to a colossal amount of anxiety.
After reading every book on every baby situation I could think of and some more besides, I slowly began to find my feet. With the birth of two more daughters, my knowledge and experience grew to such an extent that I was able to help parents who were feeling as over-whelmed as I once had.
My main ethos within Baby Sleep Answers has always been to find a solution that suits each parent and each baby, every situation is different and what fits one, won't necessarily fit another. I like to listen to the parents and tailor a plan to fix to their problem that they can feel comfortable with and that will ultimately work.
Having overcome complex sleep issues with my own children (James age 7 & 3 year old Freya) I wanted to use my experience to help other Mums. I've been a Sleep Mentor for two years now & have helped many parents to improve their babies' sleep habits through one-to-one consultations & on the Forum. I’m not naturally a strict, routine-driven Mum but I’ve learned from experience that by following a daily pattern & introducing good sleep habits, it’s possible to have a baby who sleeps well without compromising your own individual style of parenting.
I am the mother of Ben (12), Caitlin (10), Ewan and Joseph (6 year old twins). I have been developing The Baby Sleep System for the last 11 years, using academic studies, my own research and working practically with parents.
For the last seven years I have mentored many parents through the principles of The Baby Sleep System.I now run my own baby sleep company www.babysleepanswers.co.uk and am thoroughly enjoying helping thousands of parents to get their babies and toddlers to sleep.
