I have designed this site to give some information to parents and to answer some frequently asked questions regarding baby nurses" A Babynurse is a newborn specialist. Babynurses have a deep understanding
of the developmental stages of newborns. Most have taken courses
to stay current with the latest newborn philosophies and standards.
Babynurses will take special care of your newborn. They will help
teach you how to care for your newborn, including bathing techniques , feeding,
diapering, dressing, how to do the babyís laundry and the maintenance of
your babyís room. They will help to get the baby on a schedule, which will also
help the parentís sleeping pattern once the Babynurse leaves.
Babynurses base their rates on 22 hour days, their average daily rates are:
for one child
The length of a Babynurse stay is usually between 1 and 6 months,
but is negotiable depending upon the needs of the family.
Interviewing a Babynurse is often as simple as having a phone conversation,
a physical interview and/or both. Some families wish to have their
Babynurse meet with the motherís OB/GYN and/or the prospective pediatrician.
Some Babynurses go to the hospital and accompany the "family" home,
or just welcome you at your home upon your return from the hospital.
The time you spend with the Babynurse should be pleasant and gratifying.
Because you and your Babynurse will spend many hours together, I encourage
meeting and interviewing candidates to make sure their skills and
personality are the right fit for you and your family. Please give me a call to
discuss your needs.
