Love Notes

lorelai-2

From the very first night that we brought our baby home from the hospital, Nightingale Night Nurses was there every step of the way. It was such a wonderful feeling to not only know that our baby was in the safest and most caring hands (other than our own) overnight, but also that we could get a restful night’s sleep. We were never truly prepared for the exhaustion that came with bringing our bundle of joy home with us, but it was overwhelming to say the least. Knowing that at the end of the day, we would have a trusted, knowledgeable Nightingale watching over our baby and helping us get a good night sleep was sometimes all we needed to get us through those early days of exhaustion.

We learned so much from the Nightingales (from swaddling techniques to napping schedules) and are so grateful that they have been a part of our lives. If you are expecting and are considering overnight care, you will not find a better option out there than Nightingales Night Nurses. They are the best!

"Karen is an absolute life saver! With bags under our eyes and at the ends of our wits, she first came to save us during our first week as new parents. Instantly, her serene confidence and excitement to help newbies like us put us at ease; we knew we had found someone special. Throughout our time working with Karen, she combined the wisdom of her years of expertise with children with her utmost respect for how we want to care for our little one. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found her in this exciting (and sometimes terrifying!) time in our lives. She is a treasure who has taught us so very much. We wholeheartedly recommend her!"

Monica & Colin

"Nightingale Night Nurses was a pleasure to work with! Kristin was extremely responsive to our (somewhat last minute) inquiries about getting help with our new little one and Heather was a complete pro. The first night she was with us our son visibly relaxed as soon as she held him and she allowed us to get some much needed sleep. We were so fortunate to have found the Nightingales!"

Katherine & David

"Gloria was an angel and I felt relieved whenever she walked in the door. She helped me set goals early on and allowed me to relax and truly rest knowing my baby was in her capable hands. When I ran into some challenges breastfeeding, she was able to advise and support me. My son was sleeping beautifully by the time we were done working with Gloria and, while I know all children are different, I am confident that her gentle comforting techniques taught him healthy sleep habits that have lasted long after our time with her."

My family gave us several nights of overnight nursing as a baby shower present for our second son, and what a gift it was!! Our night nurse Tara was *amazing* - she immediately put us at ease with her calm, competent presence. She took our lead on how we wanted our little man's night to go, but also helped soothe him so that I got far more sleep than I'd have thought possible. I slept incredibly soundly between nursing him, knowing she was watching over him! Such a wonderful gift for a mom - peace of mind, and sleep!!

"I was so fortunate to have Vanessa’s help with my newborn our first week home. She is so compassionate and supportive. It was very clear to me right away that she really loves babies. Vanessa provide great support on nursing, infant bathing, and remedies for baby’s upset tummy. As a single mom this service was the best gift I could give myself and my child."

- Kimberly

"Kristin replied right away and helped put my mind at ease by scheduling Shannon for our family. Shannon is remarkable! She is extremely thoughtful, positive and knowledgeable. She gave our family support and I felt that she truly cared for my newborn. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough! I am very happy that I found Nightingale Night nurses."

As you promised, we have loved working with Tara! We will sad to see her go after this week.

"Jill was with us the first night I came back home from the hospital and provided great care for my newborn for the first month. Her work was super critical for both the baby and me. She is a thought partner for me. Any time I have a question and seek for Jill’s opinion, she would always provide her thoughts but would also emphasize that it is up to us to make the final decision. She also shared great tools. A new swaddle, gummy bear lamp and helped us find a pacifier that was the right fit for our baby. Jill has good work ethics. She always arrived a few minutes early, and she would diligently track the timing of feeding, diaper change, amount of feeding, etc. Besides basic care, she also paid attention to the growth of my baby. My daughter dropped quite some weight in the first 3 days after birth, and we had to visit her pediatrician multiple times to make sure she stopped losing weight. Jill asked me to text her the weight after the doctor visit. When I told her the baby had finally gained weight, she was as happy as I was.

Jill has my endorsement as a caring, competent night nurse who will consistently provide dependable child care for newborns."

"Kristin is literally the baby whisperer! Our daughter would literally turn into a different baby (in a good way) the moment Kristin walked into the house. Kristin started coming regularly when our daughter was 2 weeks old. We had her for about 2 months, took a break and then had her come back a few nights per week once I went back to work. She was a huge source of support in the first weeks and months—a time that is most vulnerable and stressful for new parents. She has an extremely calming and grounding presence. She is also a wealth of knowledge (especially after raising 4 children)and manages to share her knowledge in a very judgment free manner. She consistently checked in on days and nights when she wasn’t with us. Now that our daughter is almost 6 months—I still text with her and send her photo updates. I will absolutely schedule Kristin the moment I find out I’m pregnant with my next!"

"We used Gloria as a sleep consultant and a night nurse—this was a very unique experience as many sleep consultants don’t even meet your child, but Gloria not only met our baby, she also had the opportunity to observe her patterns at night and help give recommendations based on what she saw. Once she was no longer spending nights with us, she continued to check in daily to find out how our daughter was doing and give advice based on the progress she was making. We really appreciated how she respected our desires to “gently” sleep train and not just let her cry it out. Over the 2 weeks we worked with Gloria we saw a marked improvement in the number of wake-ups."

- Joanna

"We used Nightingale Night Nurses to help with two overnights for our 13 week old during my first week back to work after maternity leave. Our nurse, Toireasa, was amazing! I was concerned that our challenging sleeper wouldn't take to someone other than mom or dad at night, but Toireasa knew exactly how to soothe him, while also teaching him how to self-soothe. After two nights under her care, he's going to sleep on his own and I'm finally getting more than 2 hour stretches of sleep!"-

Kristin is the best! You do not need to look any further. Always on time, always there to help, and when mom needs sleep more than anything, she is trustworthy. This is the night nurse you can welcome in your home. Absolutely the best.

- Melissa & Chris

"Tara was absolutely amazing. She really helped, not only did she give me the support I needed after my second child but also helped build my confidence. She is reassuring, gentle, professional, and totally competent. I am someone who has a hard time trusting others to care for my children and after the first night I realized she is totally capable and trustworthy. I really believe she has a special place in her heart for each child she cares for."

- Steph & Sam

"We worked with Nightingales after the birth of our second child. They were supportive, positive and knowledgeable. But their support actually started before the baby was even born. I went into early labor and was put on modified bedrest. Nightingales reassured us that if the baby came early they could step in. We were fortunate that the baby waited until week 39 to join us. Nightingales started the night he came home from the hospital. It was great to be able to have time to connect with our older son and get some sleep between feedings. And to have the reassurance of experts taking care of him. However, the team went above and beyond as my husband travels for work, and I was back in the hospital twice after the birth. Nightingales stayed with our little ones and gave me peace of mind so I could concentrate on getting me back to full health. Nightingales had great advice on common baby ailments and they were so capable in helping us care for my son after a small surgery on his mouth and his circumcision. They were also able to help with breastfeeding, swaddling and when to start tummy time. But most of all - they approach everyone in the family with a deep sense of caring and concern. Celebrating the small joyful moments such as first smiles and giggles and being empathetic with the load that parents carry- particularly while trying to juggle work. It was great also for us to be able to talk with different caregivers and for Kristin to help us navigate to the right fit. We highly recommend Nightingales."
