We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
Originally, I tried to find a nanny on my own and it took me much, much longer and only half of them spoke English. I had to do my own background checks. Morningside Nannies made it much easier, faster and more efficient.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
Indera is just wonderful. She is always happy and clearly loves her job. She is kind and fun and as for the practicalities, she is always on time and very flexible.
It’s been a dream to work with Morningside, the caliber of nannies was definitely apparent.
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
I just wanted to let you know that Elizabeth is fantastic! She is great with the boys, and so helpful with such a calm and pleasant way of being. We are so happy with her.
We put our trust in Morningside to place us with a nanny that was perfect for our family’s needs and Morningside delivered.
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.
