Night Nanny vs. Baby Nurse

Many people call asking for a Baby Nurse. This term is not allowed in many states unless the person is a certified nurse. A Night Nanny does NOT offer any clinical procedures or medical advice. Similar to a Postpartum Doula, the Night Nanny is well-versed in all aspects of infant care, however, her role is focused primarily on the care of the baby throughout the night. Her help is limited in order to keep things quiet and calm, however, she may do babies laundry, clean and prepare bottles, or other small tasks throught the night.

When looking for postpartum care, or night nanny services, it is advisable to begin by assessing your needs. Are you looking for experience, education and guidance? Do you want someone to come in and help care for you so that you can better care for your newborn? Do you want someone to teach you baby care and calming/soothing techniques and support your breastfeeding efforts? If you have answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then a Postpartum Doula might be what you are looking for. If you feel like you would like someone with the same experience and education, but primarily provide overnight care for the baby, then a Night Nanny may be more of what you are looking for. A typical night shift is 11pm to 7am. Fees for Night Nanny services begin at $25.00 per hour.

    "We wouldn't want to ever do it without the help of a doula now. We loved having Lori be our doula.."
