Childcare tips


Welcome to BITW: Easy, Healthy, Start In Life

Are you at that weaning stage?

Daunting, I know!

Another barrage of information!

Do you require help and advice?

Perhaps you would like fresh food cooked and delivered

to your door!  That is if you are local enough to me!!

I can prepare, make and freeze your baby food then deliver it to your door.

Or I can just talk you through this next stage of development.

Alternatively, you may want to invest in my Little Babes Book of Weaning Advice and Tips.

Children & Babies Sleep Advice

Good morning,
Did you sleep well? 
If the answer is no!!  Read on.....
I am in the process of writing an easy to follow sleep 
training book.  
After 28 years in the childcare field and many 
families calling upon my expertise in this area and having 
many success stories. 
I have decided to not only offer
sleep consultations (£25 ph), help & advice via email (£10 each)
but to develop an easy to follow sleep training book to help families.
This is paramount to your child as good sleeping habits are beneficial to your child's all round well being, growth and development but incredibly important for your quality of life and relationships.

Positive Parenting

If you are struggling with your child. 
 Try turning things around instead of a "No", say a well done and make your child realise how happy they make you feel when they do something good.



Yesterday I learnt the hard way!!
I obviously put sun cream  on too late!!
We went for a lovely walk, explore and a picnic.  We were oblivious of the suns harmful rays and it caught us by surprise!

If in doubt apply it... All children are different with varying skins.

I know now that before we leave home, we will apply!! 
 Better to be safe than sorry!! 
 I am feeling very sorry today.

It did not even feel very warm.....

Secret to Parenting

How will your life change having a baby??

So you have just discovered you are pregnant or you might be trying for a baby...
Well, stop, breath, relax and read on....
Being a parent should be a happy and joyful time..
The reality is you become exhausted! 
Bombarded by different views and approaches, sleepless nights, endless obstacles..
I have been in childcare for 24 years, I have had my own children..
I think it has been a pretty easy ride compared to some of the awful experiences some people suffer and put up with.

Grandparents looking after Grandchildren

What do we think about Grandparents looking after Grandchildren?
For some it is wonderful for both the Grandparents and the Grandchildren!
For others it can be a nightmare.
My children spent many a day and night with my lovely parents.
My Dad can get wound up quickly and has a short fuse, but deep down he loves being around my children. 
Who wouldn't, it keeps you young!!
My parents have always followed my way and never have we conflicted that they knew better!

Childcare vouchers

Childcare Vouchers

What are childcare vouchers?  How do they work?
Who can use them?

You can use childcare vouchers to pay for the childcare you use for your children.  You can use them at a nursery or a Childminder or Nanny, they must be Ofsted registered.

 The part of your gross salary you exchange for childcare vouchers is tax-free and exempt from National Insurance contributions (NI). Because of this, you can make savings of up to £933* a parent, a year. It doesn't cost you anything to sign up for

Why use a nanny agency

Babes In The Wood is just what you have been looking for, the right place!
All your childcare requirements under one roof!

I have been in the childcare field for 24 & 1/2  years.  I was a private nanny so I know what my families are looking for when searching for a new nanny!
I am more than a nanny agency, I run a Childcare Consultancy too!  I can help you with any troubles you may tumble across with your little ones.  I have years of experience of helping families with sleep training, I have given advice and support on weaning, potty training, behaviour issues, mealtime difficulties.



Right way or wrong way!!

Weaning is the process of introducing solid foods into a baby's diet.
It is a gradual process.
By about 6 months, sometimes earlier, your baby will become used to this gentle milestone.  In my opinion food is most importantly given slowly and at your baby's pace.  Start with just plain baby rice.  Just mix up to a loose texture and place towards the lips and allow your baby to lick taste and decide whether she wants to continue.
You will introduce one mealtime to start for a week or so.
