Welcome to Night Nannies Australia! Annemarie decided to start the Night Nanny Specialist Nanny agency after Annemarie had her first baby. Annemarie's baby was not a good sleeper, especially throughout the night. Annemarie now has 5 children (including twins). After having a multiple birth Annemarie realised the importance of having assistance when needed by professionals who are experienced and trained to work with twins and triplets. We love our multiples families.
Annemarie is qualified in early childhood development and has over 20 years centre based & nanny experience specialising in behavioural and sleep strategies for babies and children.
As Annemarie was determined to try and establish a manageable sleep routine herself for her new baby, like she had over the previous years with other children.
Annemarie realised that it is very difficult to implement a good and gentle sleep program with your own child and without the necessary support and guidance. After contacting a variety of agencies, Annemarie found that there were no agencies providing overnight gentle sleep services in your own home.
Although Karitane & Tresillian were options, she did not feel that the short period of time in a foreign environment would be suitable for her and baby.
After much discussion and 12 months of research with a team of Mothercraft Nurses, midwives and Maternity Nannies, Night Nannies was born and has been helping families Australia wide and internationally since 2005.
What does a Night Nanny do?
Night Nannies come to your home for an initial assessment of your child's sleep routines, health and environment, working in with the requirements of your family. The Night Nanny usually then works a shift from 9pm - 7am attending to your child's needs throughout the night, resettling, feeding, changing and encouraging the establishment of a regular sleeping routine to help your family get a good nights sleep.
Night Nannies has a gentle sleep technique philosophy and does NOT follow controlled crying. We work with an individualised program derived from Night Nannies experienced and trained Sleep Specialists.
Night Nannies also offers babysitting, casual day and permanent nanny placements.
We hope that you find Night Nannies before you become sleep deprived and realise that "you deserve a good night's sleep".
