Is Hiring a Baby Nurse Right for You?

Until recently, newborn specialists were commonly referred to as baby nurses. In 2005, a law passed making it a felony to use the term nurse if you are not a licensed nurse or nursing school graduate.

Today most of those candidates with specialized education, experience and training call themselves newborn care specialists. Those referring to themselves as a baby nurse should have a nursing degree and be a registered, practical or licensed nurse.

What experience do our baby nurses have?

Our baby nurses typically have learned their extensive newborn care skills through practical experience and training in newborn and infant care. Many have worked in hospital nurseries or pediatrician’s offices.

Since baby nurses have medical training, they are qualified to provide care for babies needing specialized care.

What does a baby nurse do?

Baby nurses care for newborns and teach parents how to care for their newborns. Baby nurses may stock the nursery, sterilize bottles, feed, bathe and change the baby and launder the baby’s clothes. Baby nurses typically keep a detailed log outlining when the baby has slept and ate.

Most baby nurses provide 24 hour or overnight care. During their shifts they can be expected to bring the baby to his mother for middle of the night feedings, care for the baby overnight, and help establish healthy eating and sleeping habits.

Baby nurses can be instrumental in helping new parents adjust to life with a baby and in helping parents to feel confident in their caregiving abilities.

How do I hire a baby nurse?

Since baby nurses are in high demand, it is not unusual for parents to secure their baby nurse during their first trimester of pregnancy. Many baby nurses will require a contract and deposit to reserve the dates you wish to secure their services.
