Massachusetts 24/7 Newborn and Infant Care

If you need someone to provide day and night support for your family as you navigate parenting a newborn, 24/7 care might be the right choice for you.

A newborn care specialist is a highly trained individual who specializes in caring for newborns and dedicates a significant portion of their time to one family. They can work with your family for the first few weeks or months of your baby's life.

  • They typically work 16-20 hour shifts, 5-7 days a week.
  • The newborn care specialist will travel to your home and typically stay with you 24/7 throughout the duration of their contract with your family.
  • Assignments can range from 2 weeks to 6 months, with most families booking 24/7 newborn care for around 12 weeks (or until their baby is successfully sleeping through the night). Live-in positions last between 8-12 weeks.

A 24/7 newborn care specialist can take over complete care of the infant or work collaboratively with the family to provide education and support. Live-in care is tailored to the needs, wants and goals of the individual family.

Let’s break down the difference between Overnight Newborn Care and 24/7 Live-In Care:


Overnight Newborn Care

Your postpartum expert will work 8-12 hour shifts in your home, while living at their own home between shifts.


24/7 Live-In Newborn Care

Your postpartum expert will work 16-20 hour shifts. They will live-in and travel with your family, including appointments or vacations as needed. They are assigned to a single family for their entire contract.

Whether you choose overnight or 24/7 coverage, our newborn care specialists will:

  • Provide breastfeeding support
  • Prepare bottles, wash bottles and pump parts, and ensure proper breastmilk storage
  • Feed, change and provide overall baby care
  • Establish a healthy overnight sleep environment
  • Restock diapers and wipes & upkeep nursery organization
  • Maintain a log for the duration of their shift, tracking feeding times, number of ounces, diaper changes, etc.

Massachusetts Sleep Training

Our Massachusetts Sleep Consultants offer a comprehensive range of sleep training services for babies and toddlers. We firmly believe in a personalized approach that takes into account the unique needs of both your baby and your family.

  • For babies aged 0-5 months we offer a virtual 30-day service: We work collaboratively to track data and set attainable goals at your baby's own pace. This gentle approach helps establish healthy sleep habits.
  • For babies aged 5 months and older we can offer both in-home sleep training and virtual options. We create a tailor-made plan that caters specifically to your baby, your family, and your comfort. This plan takes into consideration your unique circumstances and aims to achieve better sleep for everyone involved. The duration of sleep training for older babies and toddlers can vary, depending on your family and your baby. We understand that every child is different, and we adapt our approach accordingly.

If you are struggling with sleep issues, you are not alone. We can help.
