Baby Nurse Holding Baby

 

Do you offer baby nurse services during the day?

Yes, we do! We require a minimum of 8 hours and  per day shift and the hours are arranged according to your needs. 

 

Where will the baby nurse stay?

We ask our families to please provide the night nurse with a  comfortable space to stay close to the baby.  Some families provide a a bed or a very comfortable chair or rocking chair. Some families have the night nurse stay in the nursery with the baby and others have the night nurse stay in the living room with the baby.

 

How long should I have a baby nurse for?

Every family is different. Help is crucial during the first three months and parents start weaning according to their needs. Other families have kept a baby nurse every night for the first 6 months. The best thing to do is contact us, so we can discuss your individual needs. We will support you as long as you need us.  There is no minimum or maximum of nights to utilize our baby nurse services. If you need us, we will do anything possible to accommodate to your needs. 

How far in advance should I book my baby nurse?

Early bookings are recommended. Our baby nurses get booked fast and we can only take a limited number of reservations per month.

However, we do our best to support your family according to availability.

Do not hesitate to contact us! It's never too early to book your Babies RN baby nurse.

 

My baby is one month old, can I still have a baby nurse?

Absolutely, please reach out if you need our support. Even though we recommend reservations, our clients are welcome to utilize our baby nurse services at anytime during the newborn stage.

Can I still have a baby nurse if I am breastfeeding?

Definitely, if you are breastfeeding the baby nurse will support you as much as possible through out the night. She will change the baby and get him/her ready for you to feed. The baby nurse will bring the baby to you or let you know when the baby is ready to eat. As soon as you are done feeding, the baby nurse will put the baby back down for you and you can go right back to sleep. 

How can a Babies RN baby nurse support me if I am pumping?

Pumping frequently is crucial for maintaining a healthy milk supply. That's where having a Babies RN night nurse can be a game-changer! With a night nurse, you can wake up exclusively to pump while she takes care of feeding your baby. Plus, she'll handle storing the pumped milk and cleaning pump parts and bottles, so you can get back to sleep faster. Say hello to more restful nights and a thriving milk supply!

We charge per hour for the services provided and we have a one-time $500 Registration fee per family.

Why do newborn babies need overnight care?

 Newborns require overnight care for several reasons:

  • Frequent Feedings: Newborns typically need to eat every 2 -3 hours, including during the night. Breastfeeding or formula feeding during the night helps ensure they receive adequate nutrition for growth and development.

  • Diaper Changes: Newborns have small bladders and bowels, so they may need frequent diaper changes, even at night, to prevent discomfort and diaper rash.

  • Comfort and Soothing: Newborns may wake up at night due to discomfort from gas, colic, or simply the need for comforting. Providing reassurance and soothing techniques can help them settle back to sleep.

  • Monitoring: Newborns require monitoring for signs of illness, distress, or other issues. This includes checking their temperature, breathing, and overall well-being throughout the night.

  • Bonding: Overnight care allows parents or caregivers to bond with their newborn, fostering emotional attachment and promoting a sense of security and trust.

  • Establishing Routine: Consistent overnight care helps establish a routine for the newborn, which can aid in regulating their sleep patterns over time.

  • Overall, overnight care for newborns is essential for their well-being, growth, and development, as well as for the peace of mind of parents.

What is a Night Nurse - Baby Nurse - Newborn Care Specialist?
