Baby Nurse, Night Nanny, and Newborn Specialists
A Baby Nurse / Newborn Specialist is hired to care for your baby if you decide that you need some temporary help. A post-natal helper will assist in all newborn needs that take place during the day or night. They will feed, burp, diaper, rock, sing, administer medicine (upon parent's approval), etc. A post-natal helper may work as little as a week or may work until that new little one is on a regular sleeping schedule. A post-natal helper must have experience with newborns and may have experience with multiples and/or preemies.
A Post Natal Helper has more experience than a night nanny. She can teach how to swaddle, burping positions, bathing routines, and even help with getting the baby on a sleep schedule. A Post Natal Helper may help with the infants laundry, and any care of the infant.
