It is hard to know where to start with the thank-you’s and it is impossible to describe how much you have done to help us. Thank you for all your invaluable help and support this past month. In addition to being the Baby Whisperer, you have also shown yourself to be Supernanny. Thanks to all your advice and tips I really feel like we are able to get the best out of X and he is becoming a delightful older brother. I feel so incredibly lucky to have met you and to have been able to learn from you.
Caroline is a marvel!
I must admit that I had some trepidation that it wouldn't work bringing another child into an already busy household. I need not have worried.
Caroline has worked with us since the birth of my second son and there is simply nobody I would rather have looking after my children. She has done proxy parenting for us since having her own child and I felt no different than I did before.
Caroline is in her element when she is calmly juggling lots of things so bringing her own child into the equation does not on any level affect the attention the other children receive. A is a dear little boy and loves the company of other children. If anyone has any concerns about employing Caroline with A, I learnt quickly enough there is no need and hurry up and grab her!
We booked Caroline as our post-natal carer when both our boys were newborn and we have used Caroline for various “proxy parenting” roles over the past few years. Last October, we booked Caroline again for another proxy parenting role to look after now 5 and 3 year old boys, together with her own child who was 22 months old at the time.
Caroline took responsibility for every single aspect of the children while we were away, including the nursery/school run, playgroups, arts/crafts, homework, cooking healthy meals and washing the childrens’ clothes and bedding.
We feel that Caroline strikes a perfect balance of being disciplined with children, which she ensures is aligned with the parents’ approach, whilst showing them plenty of love and affection. She is incredibly calm and in control and she always shows her initiative, even with the children’s activities (which ranged from t-shirt drawing to baking, arts/crafts and library trips). In addition, whenever we ask Caroline for her thoughts on specific issues we are experiencing with the children at different stages, she provides invaluable advice on how to get the best out of them.
Both our boys loved being in Caroline’s care and they enjoyed playing with her son. Knowing that the boys were so happy meant that we were able to totally relax during our time away. We recommend Caroline with full and total confidence. She is an outstanding nanny and person, and we will certainly be booking her again for more proxy parenting in the future
Caroline’s breastfeeding advice was invaluable to me and without it I may have stopped altogether. Caroline is a professional, caring, understanding and experienced
I have known Caroline Evans approximately 10 years (consultations and reciprocal referrals of clients for infant feeding support). I have personally watched Caroline in interactions with mothers and babies and I found Caroline to be one of the most skilled and conscientious infant care and infant feeding practitioners I have observed and worked with.
Caroline’s skill and knowledge of breastfeeding is excellent, and her interaction with mothers and babies is caring, sensitive, intuitive, supportive and respectful. Caroline’s demeanour is lovely and non judgemental yet confident. She inspires trust in her honesty and reliability in her skills and knowledge.
Caroline is passionate about infant feeding and has a special interest in Tongue Tie, GORD and CMPI (and other allergies) that may impact on the mother and infants feeding journey.
I have no reservations in recommending Caroline Evans and the services she provides.

"What can I say about Caroline? She is one of the most hard-working, ernest, knowledgeable and honest consultants you will ever meet. Caroline has attended several of our courses and the work she produces is of the highest possible standards. She thrives on new research and won't stop until she understands as much as there is to know - why? For her genuine desire to support babies and families in the most evidence-based and considered manner. Caroline is a pleasure to work with, supportive of other colleagues, holistic in her approach and always striving for the best for her families she works with. Caroline also is someone not scared to say, she is not sure what is going on or she doesn't know the answer, but then will ask and will research, get feedback and then share this with families and other colleagues. I recommend her without hesitation."
