Getting the right help. We understand that taking care of your baby’s medical needs is emotionally draining and it’s ok to ask for help. Knowing that your baby is safe and well taken care by our trained team of professionals can allow you to go to an appointment, or out on a date night or visit with friends. Don’t lose yourself during this time. Taking care of your emotional and mental health gives you the energy you need to take care of your baby.

You need sleep. You are tired. The vast majority of babies with feeding tubes have reflux and aren’t always the best sleepers. You investigate every noise and jump to the sound of every beep or little fuss your baby makes.You will do anything you can to prevent that ng tube from coming out. There are a lot of things that keep you up at night, let us worry about them so you can sleep.

You need support. Sometimes just knowing that you have someone to talk to, that really understands the level of care involved can be very comforting. It’s also helpful to have an experienced nurse by your side to help you navigate challenges as them come.

What do we do? (the specifics)

Your Night Nurse will arrive between 9-10pm and stay throughout the night, working an 8-12 hour shift. She will attend to your baby’s every need; feeding, initiating and keeping a schedule, swaddling (if possible) & soothing, pumping support, preparing bottles or filling the feeding pump, bottle & breast pump cleaning, parent education and keeping the nursery stocked and tidy.

We have worked with babies that have:

  • Heart monitors
  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Sleep apnea
  • Nasogastric (NG) tubes
  • education on the benefits of a routine
  • Gastric (G) tubes
  • Supplemental oxygen
  • Heart defects
  • Preemies

Why work with the Nightingales?

  • Personalized Process

We are not a one size fits all agency. We don’t just send you any night nurse, each placement is unique and customized for the special family it serves. Let us connect you with a night nurse who specifically fits your needs through a trusted and unique personalized placement process based off of three components; your intake form, your consult with Kristin (either phone or in person) and your favorite color.

  • Quality Coverage

We can ensure that you always have quality care you can count on! We take a team approach and have a built in backup system.  Every family that works with the Nightingale Night Nurses meets with two Nightingales, one who will be your primary support person, and the other who will be able to cover extra nights that you might need or if your regular support person is sick, or has a family emergency or scheduling conflict.

  • Ongoing Support

Our skilled and compassionate newborn care professionals will give you in home hands on support as you transition into life with a newborn. In the event that you have questions during the day, we are happy to answer them by phone, text or email. In home daytime support is available for a minimum of 4 hours per visit.

Nightingale Night Nurses was a lifesaver for us when we brought home our newborn son who required a bit more medical attention. Tarzia and Kristin were wonderful to work with. We built a great working relationship and friendship as well!

"Hiring the Nightingale Night Nurses was the best thing we ever did. It wasn’t just about the luxury of a better night’s sleep, it was of an an investment in our entire first year with our children. I was able to to sleep through the night and have the energy to care for our twins during the day and my husband didn’t miss much work from being sleep-deprived. If we decide to have another baby, Kristin will be the first person we call!"
