The lovely ladies Sophie & Faye from Blissful Bambino arrived [also armed with goodies] and were greeted warmly by us all, after a round of introductions we got cracking, Top of the list was SLEEPING! All of the Slummies had experienced some form of sleep issue with their babies over the past few months, from issues going down, to waking up in the night and not going back to sleep. Faye & Sophie had some great advice and really re-assured the group that we were on the right track. For the more intense issues they offered practical step by step advice on what to do. [Cross fingers it’ll work]
Next on the agenda was discipline, how do we say no and mean no and they understand the no, and no just laugh and copy us…ahhhhhh…. Again Sophie & Faye gave us some top tips, for example distract the baby with something else, and decide when you want to pursue the no and how to get that message across. We then moved on to discussing feeding, controlling screeching, baby movement and more.
The evening was really pleasant and all the Slummies left feeling more confident and thoroughly impressed with the great advice that was given –
"So, Faye and Sophie were a revelation. I would most definitely recommend them to brand new parents finding their feet in the early days, as well as parents of older babies looking for practical, meaningful advice from warm and friendly professionals. It is rare to come across people who are so obviously passionate about what they do. This is coupled with a no-nonsense, knowledgeable and caring approach. I liked the fact that their emphasis was on building babies' and toddlers' independence and confidence. Faye and Sophie gave some invaluable tips and answered our questions with honesty and humour and, best of all, I went away feeling really quite inspired and keen to put some of the ideas into practice! Thank you so much Mummy C for organising this, thanks to Mummy La for being hostess with mostess and thanks to Faye and Sophie for a brilliant session." Mummy S
