Night Nurse

A Night Nurse or night nanny is an individual trained and skilled in providing newborn and infant care throughout the night.

Sleep deprived parents can take advantage of the services of a night nurse so they can catch up on some much needed shut eye. A night nurse can be hired after birth and can provide services for the first several weeks or even months of a child’s life. They can provide care on either a part-time basis or a full-time basis. Many night nurses are also certified newborn care specialists.

What does a Night Nanny Do?

A night nanny can help a newborn develop healthy routines and work toward good sleeping habits. Hiring a night nurse also gives tired parents the ability to sleep through the night so they can be rested for career responsibilities as well as caring for their child throughout the day.

Common night nurse responsibilities include bottle-feeding, rocking, swaddling, soothing, comforting, diaper changing, bathing, and more. Night nannies can often be an excellent resource for parents by offering extensive experience and knowledge in caring for newborns.
