Baby Nurses in Los Angeles
What is a Newborn Specialist or Baby Nurse ?
Also known as a night nanny, post-partum doula and most commonly known as a Baby Nurse, a Newborn Specialist is not a Registered Nurse, but is an extensively experienced individual proficient in all aspects of newborn baby care and parental education and support. Whether you need loving care for your baby so you can sleep peacefully at night, an expert in the care of multiples, a lactation consultant, a sleep schedule specialist, a post-partum doula, or just an extra set of hands, a Baby Nurse can meet your needs.
What are the responsibilities of a Newborn Specialist or Baby Nurse ?
The primary role of a Newborn Specialist is to provide assistance during the post-delivery recovery period and assist you 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 you get much needed rest. When the baby wakes up, the Newborn Specialist feeds by bottle or brings the baby to Mom for nursing. After feeding, the Newborn Specialist burps, changes and settles the baby back to sleep. (A nursing Mother can hand the baby over immediately after nursing and can get right 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. Typically one of their key objectives is to help transition the baby to a regular feeding and sleeping schedule.
