The Faye and Lou team comprises experienced mothers and expert nannies dedicated to making a mother’s life easier. We are trained nannies with 40 years’ experience between us. At the last count, we calculated we've had a hand in raising more than 200 children from newborns to teenagers.

We don't claim to know everything, but we've got a good idea of what parents need, of what works and what doesn't. We passionately believe in the preciousness of childhood. Every child we've cared for is special to us. We understand too the guilt and pressure that busy parents feel under to provide the best for their children.

Here are some of the tips and advice that have helped us over the years. Remember that every baby is unique and what may work for one will not always work with another, you have to try different things till you find something that works.
