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.

With a background in Psychology and Marketing, I have always wanted to help people change their lives for the better, but I wasn’t sure in what way. Then I had my son. He is the reason I am doing my life’s work. I moved into this career because I am hugely passionate about helping others who are going through what I went through.

My little boy was born with laryngomalacia (a ‘floppy larynx’). He also had reflux and as a result was sick a lot of the time. He catnapped all day and all-night long, never sleeping for long stretches, no matter what my husband and I tried.

He woke up every hour. Every. Single. Night…For a year!

Working with a sleep consultant TRANSFORMED all our lives. We solved his sleep issues within a week, and he has since been sleeping 12 hours a night.

He gets ill less, he is even more chirpy than before, we enjoy our time together more, and my husband and I have our quality time back in the evenings. We have all felt so many positive effects from just a few hard nights in the beginning.

Now, I want YOU to feel how life changing this can be and to show you how quickly you will see results.

I work closely with you to create a bespoke plan suited to your child’s needs and then teach you gentle ways to help them to fall asleep on their own (and stay asleep for longer than 45mins)!

Do get in touch if you have a baby or toddler that struggles to nap peacefully or wakes a lot during the night and leaves you feeling exhausted. I work with children aged 0-6 years.

The expert skills and support I can provide you with to help your child learn independent sleep skills, have lifelong positive repercussions for you and your family. Let my story change your story!

Call or email me now to book your FREE 15mins mini consultation, have a chat and get more details about my methods.

The Back to Basics Tiny Dreamer - Support through a regression

It is not uncommon for babies and toddlers who have been taught to be great sleepers to ‘test the boundaries’ from time to time.
This option is for parents who have met with me in the past, but are looking for a ‘refresher’ and a way to get all things sleep back on track, OR for parents with children whose sleep has regressed due to travel or after recovering from a period of illness.

This package includes:
- A 60 mins consultation, usually by phone or Zoom, during which we’ll discuss any particular challenges you are having with your child and how to resolve them.
- Optional 2x follow-up emails that you can use to send me any additional questions that might come up as you get things back on track.

£95, £120 with optional 2 support emails

- Private in-home overnight support - This consultation will take place in the comfort of your own home and we will begin your journey to great sleep together. I will arrive prior to your child’s recommended bedtime and stay overnight until 7am the next morning.
