Care

Your Nightingale, a newborn care specialist or postpartum doula, will typically arrive between 9-10pm and stay throughout the night for an 8-12 hour shift. Upon arrival, they will discuss how the day went and address any questions you may have. Throughout the night, they will stay in the same room as the baby and will handle all the tasks in between feedings such as waking, diaper changes, settling, soothing, and attending to any other needs your baby may have. If you are breastfeeding, they will bring the baby to you for nursing and if you are bottle feeding they will fully take over the night.

This includes guidance on feeding methods (breast, bottle, pumping, or a combination), preparing and storing breastmilk or formula, cleaning bottles and pump parts, burping, soothing, changing diapers, dressing, and nail care. Moreover, they will help you understand your baby's needs and interpret their cues effectively. Their expertise ensures that you receive the best care and support during this precious time.

Routine

Your night nurse will diligently maintain logs during their shifts, carefully tracking feeding and sleeping patterns, as well as other relevant information and observations. This valuable data will contribute to establishing a healthy routine for your little one. Our newborn care specialists can guide your baby into a routine starting from week one! Our ultimate goal is to provide you with a baby who enjoys restful naps, receives proper nourishment, and sleeps soundly throughout the night. *Please note that it typically takes 4-7 nights a week for sleep conditioning to be effective..*
