Overnight Newborn Care in NYC

Are you a new parent struggling with sleep deprivation? We understand that getting enough rest is crucial to your success. That's why our team of Newborn Care Specialists and Postpartum Doulas in New York are here to help!

Our Nightingales will come to your home and take over while you get the rest your body needs:

  • Breastfeeding parents can rest easy knowing they only need to wake up for feedings and not the fusses, grunts, and diaper explosions in between.
  • Formula feeding parents can sleep through the night while their Nightingale ensures their baby is well-cared for.
  • Pumping parents can also work with their Postpartum Doula or Newborn Care Specialist to balance their sleep with supporting their milk supply.

Parents who use our NYC night nurse services regularly report that their baby will sleep longer stretches and safely on their back independently. Don't let sleep deprivation affect your success as a new parent.

24/7 Newborn and Infant Care in NYC

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 in NYC 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.

DISCOVERY. We set up a phone call to answer all of your questions and thoroughly explain our services. Then we send over an intake form which helps us understand your needs and goals for in-home newborn care.

Baby Sleep Training & Sleep Consulting in New York City:

We are excited to offer virtual sleep training services through our New York Sleep Consultants. We understand that sleep training can be a challenging and confusing process, which is why we offer customized plans that work with your baby's individual needs and your family's lifestyle. We believe that sleep training should not be a "one size fits all" approach and we offer solutions that fit your baby's needs and your family's comfort.

For babies aged 0-5 months: We offer a gentle sleep coaching where we work together to track data and make and attain reasonable goals at your baby's pace. During this time, we will provide you with support and guidance as you navigate this new journey with your baby.

For babies aged 5 months and older: Our sleep plans are designed to help your baby unlearn unhealthy sleep habits and get the rest they need to grow and develop. Sleep training for an older baby or toddler typically takes between 72 hours and 30 days, depending on your unique family and baby.

Our experienced New York Sleep Consultants will be there every step of the way to offer support and guidance as you work towards your sleep goals.
