Meet Heather

Hello there, My name is Heather, although My Friends and Family sometimes refer to Me as "The Baby Whisperer", because I just have always had a way with Babies and kids! I can get the fussiest baby calm and happy and asleep peacefully in no time, as well as being able to connect with the most aloof, Seemingly UI think it's because of my absolute LOVE of children and because of my confidence, having babysat and been a Nanny for lots of families since I was 9 years old!!! No "Tough Case" that I can't crack, I have tamed the wildest toddlers and the most difficult babies alike. I truly enjoy and look forward to my time spent with the kids in My care, I give them 110% of my energy and attention, I am creative and very hands-on on, always coming up with new, different, and imaginative fun things Read more to keep them engaged and happy. I have extensive experience with all ages, from Newborns to Teens, a single child up to groups of 18 kids! I am available for a few hours, up to extended lengths of care for weeks. I really ,really love Babies, and I have cared for more Newborns than I can count. And on the other end of the Spectrum, I've cared for many families with Teens, being somewhat of a Life -Coach/Mentor/Tutor, helping them with obtaining Jobs of their own, from filling out Job Applications to getting prepared fro The First Day of Their First Job! I've helped many New Mom's with adjusting to bringing that special, but at times daunting, First Newborn Baby home, often literally going Home with them straight from The Hospital to their home and helping them figure out each step involved in establishing a smooth daily routine, which is so foreign and ofter overwhelming for First Time Parents. I am able to share what I've learned over the years in a relaxed, easy going way, and I will actually listen to your concerns and help figure out simple solutions. I offer ideas and suggestions to help You figure out what's right for YOU, since every family has different needs. I am experienced in helping work out any Lactation issues as well, being a firm believer in the Magic of Breastfeeding! I am proud to provide many glowing references either by phone or written. I pride myself on lots of parents telling Me: " Our kids don't want any other Babysitter but Heather!", even changing their dates if I am previously booked, which I consider a huge compliment! Please call or text Me directly at (818)581-5865 to discuss your specific needs and I look forward to talking with You!
