Telephone Consultations do work

Telephone Consultations do work
I'd like to say a massive thank you for your recent help. Since our call I went to the doctors and got our daughter on losec. Since then things have improved - she now sleeps 7-6 at night and when she does wake she is generally able to resettle herself. Her daytime naps have improved - from 20-30mins she now has 30-40 mins in the morning and then about 1hr 20 at lunch. She's also generally a happier munchkin!   So thank you for listening to me and not just telling me 'that's what babies do'. It's taken 9months but things are definitely b...

A Doctors View of the Sensational Baby Sleep Plan

A Doctors View of the Sensational Baby Sleep Plan
This is an Amazon review of my book from Doctor Keller I am a doctor and the small number of reviews that have given this book a 1 star are not accurate and seem to be written having not read the book properly. This book is outstandingly good. I have known many mothers to breast-feed for much longer than they envisaged as a result of having the energy to do so (because their baby and they sleep well). Further, if you read this book before you give birth, you will not have to leave your baby to cry because your babies good sleep habits will be ...

£200 vouchers for Breastfeeding????

£200 vouchers for Breastfeeding????
In the news today, £200 to be given as an incentive to encourage women to breastfeed for 6 months. Now I'm all for encouraging longer term breast feeding but honestly, this scheme is just open to abuse and how on earth are they going to police it? Put CCTV in your house to make sure there is no sneaky bottle feeding going on and that you are still breastfeeding? Apparently your Health Visitor will confirm whether you are or not..... There are some interesting comments attached to the BBC article, a lot of anger from those who are unable...

Thank you so much.....

Thank you so much.....
I just wanted to thank you for your determination to continue despite the unnecessarily cruel comments people make. Whilst constructive criticism can be helpful, insults rarely are. When my son was born he slept for no more than 20mins at a time and only then when held. I was assured he was 'normal' and I ended up hospitalised for 2 months with severe postnatal depression and psychosis - mainly due to sleep deprivation. Whilst in hospital I saw your tv programme (July 2010) and on discharge bought your book and insisted on a hospital referra...

A Success Story in Sevenoaks

I was recently in Sevenoaks with a delightful little 1 year old who has had such horrendous reflux that at one stage she dropped in weight from the 75th to under the 4th centile and still didn't get diagnosed!! Thankfully she is now eating well but does not drink milk at all - She was exclusively breast fed as she refused a bottle, but she even refused the breast from 10 months. Solid food was the way forward for her although only dry finger food, not puréed or mashed slop of any sort. However, after teaching her the art of independent s...

Screen Test for Alison!!

Screen Test for Alison!!
The Magic Sleep Fairy has been invited to attend a screen test for a new USA TV show working with A-List celebrities and their troublesome tots. All very exciting in one way, but sad in another that it just highlights the fact that no matter who you are or how much money you have - life for parents today is TOUGH! There is no real help, guidance, support and advice that actually works within the reality of the way we live in our Western World today. Mostly all that new parents are offered is strict but unrealistic guidelines, conflicting advic...
