Camilla Pretorius

Hi mamas! My name is Camilla and I am a certified baby and child sleep consultant based in South West London and a mama myself. As a South African living in London, I understand what it’s like to not have the support of close family nearby to alleviate some of the pressures of being a new Mum, especially the need to get some sleep. ‘It takes a village to raise a family’ – it is my mission to be that ‘village’ for as many parents as possible. That is why I started my own sleep consultancy, Tiny Dreamers Baby Sleep, and am so excited to offer my services to the parents here on Apparently Kids.
