  1. You have to admire the persistence of this twins' mum......... or the twins persistence!!

    This time lapse video recorded by Henriette Jonassen will have you in stitches!!!

    Henriette Jonassen, a Norwegian mum of almost-3-year-old twins Leon and Nathaniel, deserves a medal for not giving up when dealing with her twins. It doesnt get dark till 10pm in her native sweden so she tried out an experts advice (can say who's it wasnt mine!)

    This video is hilarious and no doubt many mums have felt like this at some point or other at bedtime, with their kids!!

  2. It was my birthday Last Thursday! I was looking back on my career over the years and reflecting. I’ve been working in early years ever since I left Sixth Form College more years ago than I care to admit. My work with babies began nearly 15 years now as a night nanny and even though I've not had much sleep over the years I've loved every moment of it.

    I love love love working with babies!! I love how small they are when they are first born, their smell,

    Missy was 8 weeks old when she slept through the night for the first time, and she has slept through the night, every night ever since. She’s now 12 years old but I remember those first few months with her at home as if they were literally yesterday.


    I had my daughter in my early 20s and I had been a night nanny for about 3 years,   so had no fears or worries when I found out I was expecting a baby as you........

  4. I seriously have a dislike for the term expert!

    I shudder whenever anybody introduces me as a sleep or baby expert, im just not comfortable with it.  They say to be able to call yourself an expert you should have 10,000 hours experience in a role. Well I think after 15 years of working with babies overnight I've definitely clocked up the hours, but i feel like despite my NNEB training, many  courses and many years experience there still lots for me to learn and lots that i dont know, not to mention new developments in babycare over the years. 

    I prefer the title advisor (if i really must label myself at all) I know a lot about babies in general but until and unless I get to meet or work with you I don't actually know YOUR baby. And i feel like a parent is the only expert a baby really needs.

    Sometimes that expert needs training and......
