What You Need to Know
DO YOU HAVE AN HOURLY MINIMUM?
Yes, in order to reserve my time commitment for your family, my shift minimum is 8 hours. Typically, my shift schedules begin between 9-11:00 pm and end around 5-7:00 am.
WHAT ARE THE TOP 3 NURSERY PRODUCTS YOU RECOMMEND FOR OUR NEWBORN?
I get this question often. The top 3 nursery products I recommend are: a loud sound machine (think blow dryer), a swaddle (not a blanket, but an actual swaddle) and a flat, firm sleep surface for baby (like a crib, bassinet or play yard) that meets safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
IS THERE ANYTHING OUT OF YOUR SCOPE THAT YOU WOULDN'T DO?
Yes, since I am not a trained nurse or medical professional, I will never refer to myself as a nurse or "night nurse". I also wouldn't diagnose or treat any medical issues in either the mother or baby. I would, however refer you to the proper medical specialist based on the situation, should the need arise (pediatrician, OB/GYN, IBCLC, pediatric dentist, chiropractor, etc.).
Also, I will do light household organization and cleaning duties that pertain to the baby and the nursery (baby laundry, wash bottles, restock diapers, etc.). However, I do not do heavy housecleaning, such as sweeping, moping, taking out the trash or scrubbing toilets.
