Passionate about great parenting? Want to learn more about your little ones? But feeling just a little bit overwhelmed by all the so-called ‘baby experts’ out there telling you what to do? Don’t worry, you’re not alone – we’ve been there too.

So, if you’re looking for practical, well presented and evidence based research about your child’s brain development and what life looks like from their natural perspective, explained in a safe and non-judgemental environment, then CalmFamily is just for you.

Our unique range of BabyCalm™ and ToddlerCalm™ classes are aimed at parents who really want to understand their babies & toddlers better. So, get ready for an amazing journey, with Workshops & Courses, including; antenatal, fourth trimester, sleep, baby-led weaning, behaviour, building better brains, calming and nurturing.

We take the rigidity out of raising your little ones and put you firmly back in charge, as the real expert in your own child, giving you information, facts and invaluable tips & techniques, so you can approach sleep, eating and behaviour with complete confidence. Our flexible toolkit means you’ll always be ready to deal with whatever life throws at you and will help you create a calmer and happier family life.

We can’t wait to meet you!

I did sessions with Lauren, and found them so insightful. Honestly I wish I’d done them sooner. I learnt so much. And I feel like it’s really helped my relationship with my little girl. Everything was delivered professionally, but in a friendly way. Lauren has such a wonderful way of teaching about parenting that is human and warming, not condescending like others can be.

Disposable Nappies – tips from Mumblers

Naty Nurture nappies are lovely. Never had a leak! Buy from Boots. Pricey but worth it and environmentally friendly too.

I use Naty by Nature babycare nappies, never had a problem with nappy rash with my 4 using them. I get them from amazon (cheaper)

I find asda little angels ones to be really good

Another vote for Asda nappies, I have tried so many different brands for both my little girl and little boy and have always found these the best, also a great price when the large bags are on offer.

Aldi nappies are brilliant. They also won the baby award over pampers! They must be good also as in my bounty pack this time it was mamia nappies, wipes and bubble bath! Less than two years ago when I had my son it was pampers!
