Nighttime Newborn Care Specialists

nighttime newborn care specialist comes into the home from 9 or 10 PM until 6 or 8 AM to tend to the baby so that the parents can sleep.

A nighttime newborn care specialist will stay in the baby’s room, feed the baby, burp the baby and settle the baby back down. They can offer a wonderful reprieve for couples with multiples, a sick baby, or other special circumstances that are keeping the baby up at night. For the most part though, these are healthy couples (where one or both parents are home on maternity leave) with healthy babies.

What are the benefits of having overnight care?
No more sleep deprivation! Often when a person is sleep deprived, they become frustrated and anxious. If a mom is tired, frustrated and anxious it can lead to a decreased rate of successful breastfeeding, decreased rate of early bonding between mother and baby and an increased risk of postpartum depression. Having an overnight newborn care service will give mom the rest she needs to alleviate these issues. In addition, having mom well-rested makes for a happier family as a whole!

Will I have the same newborn care specialist every night?
We try to keep the same newborn care specialist in a home as much possible. Because the same newborn care specialist does not work every night of the week, if you hire our services for 3–6 nights a week you will be acclimated to more than one newborn care specialist. We schedule this way so that the nannies are well rested when they come into your home.

Do I have to commit to a minimum number of nights?
No, you may pick as many nights as you want.

Do I have to commit to a minimum number of weeks?
No, you can have the service for 1 week or 1 year. It is up to you.

Once we begin the service, how far in advance do you need to know the schedule?
Let us know your schedule at your convenience. We are available to our clients 24/7 and will work with your schedule as needed..

Can the number of nights we use the service vary each week?
Yes.

Are all the newborn childcare specialists trained to care for multiples?
We do have some newborn care specialists that are trained and have experience caring for multiples, but they are in high demand so you’ll need to book them as far in advance as possible.

Are you insured?
Yes, we carry $2 million dollars worth of general liability coverage.

What types of screening do you perform on the newborn care specialists?
All of the newborn care specialists have been screened thoroughly with two types of background checks, including a National Criminal History test and a Local Criminal History test, and also go through a Sex Offender Database Check performed by an independent private company. In addition to background checks, newborn care specialists’ references are called and thoroughly questioned about the Newborn Care specialists’ performance and previous experience caring for newborns.

Are the nighttime newborn care specialists considered baby night nurses?
Although the care we provide to you and your baby is much like the care provided by a nurse, we are not considered baby night nurses because we do not require our newborn care specialists to have nursing degrees.

How far in advance should I register?
It is a good idea to register 8–10 weeks before your 40-week due date. If you are signing on after the baby is born, please call to check for availability.

Will I have to sign an agreement?
Yes, we enter into an agreement with all families.

What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept VISA, MASTERCARD and DISCOVER credit cards.

Yes, but we require advance notice for such requests.
