PROFESSIONAL NEWBORN CARE
If you’re looking to outsource or supplement aspects of newborn care in any way, you might start here. Many of these companies offer a variety of services ranging from night nannies, multiples care, parent education classes, sleep training, postpartum doulas, lactation consulting, and more.
What is a Night Nanny?
An experienced infant care giver (sometimes a certified newborn care specialist or even a nurse with NICU background) who helps manage sleep training, night time feedings, soothing, etc. during the night.
This service comes with a pretty steep price. If you’re interested but the cost makes you balk, consider asking for a few nights with a night nanny as part of a group baby shower gift. Or book a single night and see what you think before deciding whether to make such an investment.
What is a Postpartum Doula?
Typically hired for a minimum of 4-8 hours but can help out as often as 7 days a week, postpartum doulas are basically an extra set of hands. They’ll help with emotional and physical recovery, breastfeeding support, errands, assistance with baby and any siblings, things like that.
This is another one that could be a good group shower gift. And depending on your insurance, you can sometimes pay for this service using a health savings account.
