Xanthe came to help us with our twins when they were just 5 weeks old. She is a very kind and gentle lady who obviously has a wealth of knowledge with babies and children. She enabled us to have some well needed rest and encouraged a good sleep pattern for the twins. I felt very comfortable with Xanthe and felt as if she was more of a family member than an employee. She is very reliable and gives great advice. I cannot recommend her enough.
