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 had an emergency situation and had a nanny sent over for the following day. I am so pleased with the service provided by Morningside Nannies. My son immediately fell in love with the nanny assigned to us. We couldn’t be happier.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
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. Many thanks go to Morningside Nannies for that.
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.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
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.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
The quality of candidates was very good. It was a difficult decision but Amy has proven to be a wonderful choice. We could not have found a better person. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a nanny.
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.
