Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
We’ve placed ads in newspapers on two occasions and have gone through an Au Pair program twice. This has been our best experience by far!
I trust Morningside Nannies & their research into their nannies more than any of the other seven agencies we talked with. The checks are reliable and the quality of nannies was superb. The process of finding a nanny was handled quite professionally.
Morningside Nannies was far more professional and focused than the other agencies. They listened to my request and responded promptly. I feel very fortunate to have such superb childcare and appreciate the luxury of returning to work with-out worry.
We put our trust in Morningside to place us with a nanny that was perfect for our family’s needs and Morningside delivered.
As a new mom I was nervous about hiring a nanny, but now I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
I liked the fact that you screened the candidates before sending them to us, rather than sending the candidate to me before I knew anything about them, like happened with (name withheld), your competition.
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank 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.
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.
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.
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.
