A newborn specialist, more commonly referred to as a baby nurse, is one who specializes in the care of newborn babies. We provide both types of baby nurses: those with medical backgrounds and those without medical backgrounds. Whichever type of baby nurse you need, we accommodate.
Infant care specialists are well-versed in the aspects necessary to feed, diaper and clothe new babies. Baby nurses also possess teaching capabilities that allow them to provide education and resources to assist parents in properly developing their infant.
Baby Nurses working the nightshift are responsible for feeding, burping and changing a newborn enabling parents to get a full night’s sleep. Some Baby Nurses work 24 hour shifts if required by the client.
Baby nurses are commonly responsible for feeding, burping and changing a newborn. Newborn specialists, if desired by the client, also teach new moms how to breastfeed and offer tips to make the nursing process easier and more successful. They also keep logs of your baby's habits such as eating, sleeping, urinating and bowel movements.
They can help bathe your newborn, teach you how to care for the umbilical cord tissue or circumcision site, prepare and sterilize bottles, do your baby's laundry and help you maintain a neat and tidy nursery. There are also specially trained Baby Nurses that can help you care for twins, triplets or a premature infant.
