as a 'Baby Nurse', Newborn Specialists are extensively trained and
experienced in all aspects of newborn baby care and parental
education and support. Whether a family needs a lactation
consultant, a sleep schedule specialist, a post-partum doula, an
expert in the care of multiples, or just an extra set of hands, Baby
Nurses help families in their time of need.
The primary role
of a Baby Nurse is to provide assistance during the post-delivery
recovery period and assist families with all aspects of newborn care
including feeding, changing, bathing, infant laundry, sterilizing
bottles and helping parents catch up on much-needed rest.
Baby Nurses who work night shifts typically stay in the baby's room
and manage their care while parents sleep restfully in bed. When the
baby wakes up, the Baby Nurse feeds by bottle or brings the baby to
the mother for nursing. After feeding, the Baby Nurse burps, changes
and settles the baby back to sleep while the parents immediately
back to sleep. A daytime Baby Nurse provides similar care and also
strives to create a nurturing, stimulating environment for your baby
during waking hours. Both day and night Baby Nurses document your
baby's patterns and keep a log of sleeping, feeding and changing
times if parents wish to transition the baby to a regular schedule.
Most Baby Nurses

Nurses that work 24-hour shifts (with a scheduled break).
