Night Newborn Specialists
A Night Newborn Care Specialists comes into the home from 9 or 10 at night until 6 or 8 in the morning to tend to the baby so that the parents can, sleep.
A Night Newborn Care Specialist will stay in the baby's room, feed the baby, burp the baby and settle the baby back down. A night nurse could offer a wonderful reprieve for couples with multiples, a sick baby, or special circumstances, but, for the most part, these are healthy couples (one or both parents home on maternity leave) with healthy babies.
What are the benefits of having overnight care?
Lack of 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 breastfeeding successfully, decreased rate of early bonding between mother & 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!
