Helping Hands

If you are feeling exhausted after the birth of your new baby, or babies and would like a good night’s sleep to help you recover, please give us a call. 

 

We can also help you teach your older baby or child how to sleep through the night.

Chris & Vanessa the Night Nannies

Helping Hands when you need them… at night

We’re Chris and Vanessa and we help parents through the first few months of their baby’s lives, or help those whose older baby or children, are not sleeping through the night.

 

We will come to your home and care for your baby though the night. We can also recommend strategies for good day and night time routines and breast feeding advice.

 

We also specialise in twins and sleep training older babies and children who are waking through the night and, with new parents in mind, have recently introduced our “Welcome  Home” package.

Sleep Training 

(from 5 1/2 or 6 months) 

 

Contrary to popular belief, sleeping through the night is a learned skill.  If by five or six months (or four or five years) your baby or child is not sleeping through the night we can help change this.

 

We use a variety of techniques and strategies to suit individual babies and families and most babies/children will sleep through the night after two to three nights of training.

 

On the first night we will arrive just before bath time to observe your baby's bedtime routine. When it is time for your baby to go to bed, the sleep routine will begin. We stay through the night (and any night time awakenings), returning the following evening and help you firmly establish your baby’s new sleep routine. Again we stay through the night.

 

We encourage all parents to keep in touch for further support and guidance whenever it is necessary. Most parents find that they have the confidence and skills required to ensure their baby sleeps through the night, every night.

Cost:               £400 per 24 hours for one baby  

                        £450 per for twins 

 

Hours:            24 Hours by arrangement,

(Additional hours £25 per hour or £400 per 24 hours) 

 

Frequency:    By arrangement 

 

Travel expenses: If you are based over five miles from Muswell Hill or Harrow, We will make an additional charge to cover petrol costs.

You’ve had the baby! Now what? Unfortunately babies are not born with an instruction manual… but we are here to help. Think of this as a crash course in all things baby, with an expert instructor by your side

With a wealth of experience we will help you with all aspects of your new baby’s care, guide you in the best techniques to help establish breast feeding and also give you the opportunity to get some sleep.

Vanessa Crane 

 

I have spent the last eight years working as a night nanny. Caring for very new babies as soon as they come home from hospital is my passion. After the difficult birth of my eldest son and his subsequent reflux, I can really relate to parent’s exhaustion and anxiety in the early weeks and months of their babies lives.

 

I also love helping parents to teach their children how to fall asleep unaided AND stay asleep! Usually, after two or three nights of training.

 

In my old life, I was a professional cook and owned a speciality cheese shop. I still love to make wedding cakes (so if you know anyone who is getting married soon….). I’m happily married with two teenage sons.   

 

Relevant Qualifications 

Nursery Nurse NNEB (Ealing College)

I hold a full UK Driving licence and own my own car. 

 

Nanny Experience & Expertise 

I have had a wide variety of nannying experience, both as a full-time long term Nanny - from birth to five - and as a specialist Night/Maternity Nanny.  I also have many years experience of sleep training which I find very rewarding. Teaching parents how to get their babies/children to sleep through the night with a few nights of sleep training, feels almost like a miracle.
