16 month old Girl
"Miranda came to us for only 3 days to help my 16 month old daughter who was refusing solids and also waking sporadically at night. She was full of ideas from the start and quickly made an accurate assessment of the situation, while really listening to our needs and coming up with practical, positive solutions. Miranda had lots of tips on what to feed her and how to keep her interested at mealtimes. She was full of brilliant menu plans and tempting recipes and already on the first day my daughter was trying new things and showing a fresh interest in food. Miranda also helped with my daughter’s general routine and made insightful recommendations on her sleep schedule in order to improve her night waking and provide more of a balance to her day.
Miranda bonded with my daughter immediately and formed a great rapport with her even over such a short period - both my daughter and I missed her hugely on her departure! However Miranda was brilliant at empowering me so I felt able to cope when she left and since our time together my daughter has been continuing to eat really well and genuinely seems a happier baby for it, I cannot recommend Miranda highly enough!"

"Miranda has given us the benefit of her expert advice and coaching on a whole range of different issues - and it’s no exaggeration to say she has transformed our family life. Her Norland training, coupled with her vast experience position her well to quickly grasp family dynamics and her positive coaching style is a breath of fresh air...I am so happy that I found her!"

"I will call Miranda my miracle worker, I think she is worth every pound spent! I have a 3.5 year old son who refused to chew and was only comfortable eating his baby cereal. If he had to eat solids I would force feed him. Miranda changed him in 3 days, he was chewing, sitting at the table and feeding himself. Miranda was also very helpful in advising me on other child developmental areas. Thanks Miranda!"

"Miranda was so knowledgeable on a wide range of issues she helped us with. For example, she advised us on developing the independence of our children; increasing trust through putting boundaries in place; providing us with lots of lovely helpful recipes and diet advice; daily structure and planning routines; toys to develop interests in things; how to inspire children; types of schools; sleep routine and bed wetting advice."
Twin Girls 5 Months
“We had just returned from six weeks of holiday, during which our 5 month old twins seemed to have forgotten all the stellar sleeping and eating habits that they had developed in the their first three months. Miranda came in, watched us in action for a day, and then suggested a number of tweaks and changes to their routine. Within about one week, they were sleeping through the night and eating very well. She was also an endless source of good ideas for their leap to solid food – not only the preparation and timing of the meals, but also menu and feeding techniques.”
10 month old Girl
"We had what felt like several issues to deal with but they were managed effortlessly. Miranda offered a completely personalised service, she is completely respectful of the family as a whole - of our own sensitivities and the fact we were nervous after so many bad experiences. I was expecting to be bullied into dealing with issues but we weren't.
I am now sleeping!! My baby is happy!! As a result the family is a far more positive unit than before. Thank you Miranda!!"
Girl 6 and Boy 2
"I would thoroughly recommend Miranda for providing excellent, practical and easy to follow advice. She certainly is my Super Nanny!"
Boy 5 and Girl 3
"Miranda has a deep understanding of what motivates children, how to gain their confidence and interest, and how to develop their potential."

"I was not sure what to expect or how things would be handled but the firm, gentle approach really does work! You don’t have to be a monster to get the best out of your kids! I learnt so much and felt revived after her visit. I am excited about being a mom again! Our family was in such a state and we were not sure where to turn. Having twin girls was taking its toll on me. I was not sure if 3 days would be enough to help us, but it was. Miranda armed me with all the tools I need to follow through on all she taught me. I only wish I had called her earlier and I will be sure to turn to her in the future!"
