Providing The Nurture And Love Your Child Deserves





Become A Baby Nurse



Commonly known 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 work eight to twelve-hour shifts, day or night. We also have Baby Nurses that work 24-hour shifts (with a scheduled break).

Salary is usually based on two factors: the amount of experience the candidate brings to the position and the duties included in the job description. The average salary range for a Baby Nurse is $20 to $30 per hour. Baby Nurses for multiples typically start at $25 per hour.

The Nannies of Children's Learning Place recruits only the highest of qualified Baby Nurses in the industry.  To be considered, all candidates must be experienced, sensitive women, knowledgeable about breast feeding and the early postpartum period and CPR trained.
