A new baby in the house is a transition for everyone. While welcoming home a new baby with hugs and love is amazing, sometimes bringing home a baby can be overwhelming. Mom is recovering, Mom and Dad are sleep deprived, and siblings miss being the center of attention.
TLC for Kids knows this transitional period requires more help than usual, so we have two different options to help your family adjust to a new baby.
1 . Newborn Overnight Nanny. At TLC for Kids, we have caregivers who work as overnight newborn nannies. An overnight newborn nanny is a caregiver that comes to your house around bedtime and stays awake through the night (they are required to stay awake the entire time) to take care of the baby when he/she wakes up. The overnight nanny will feed the baby(or bring baby to mom for nursing), change, rock and put the baby back to sleep. This allows new parents to catch up on rest and enjoy a full night’s sleep because they know their baby is receiving the best care possible.
2. Newborn Specialist. If welcoming a new baby is harder than getting sleep at night, TLC for Kids also offers child care providers who are newborn specialists. Newborn specialists help parents in their home the first few weeks or months of baby’s life with parent education, feeding/breastfeeding, basic baby care, and light housekeeping. Newborn specialists can also help older siblings adjust to sharing mom and dad’s attention with a new baby in the house. Whether you are a seasoned mom or new to parenting, a newborn specialist is an option to help your family adjust.
TLC for Kids is ready to assist you and your growing family, so whether you are expecting and want to find a caregiver before your baby arrives, or already have a newborn but need help, call TLC for Kids today: (314) 725-5660.
All parents strive for a good night’s sleep. That is hard to do with a newborn baby in the house. Most newborns will wake every 3 hours or so to eat. After feeding, burping, diaper changes, swaddling and getting baby back to sleep parents have about an hour or two until they need to do it all again.
TLC for Kids can help. TLC’s Newborn Overnight Caregivers come into your home and take care of your baby for the night. Our caregivers have been screened by our professional staff and have years of experience caring for newborns. They even specialize in multiples!
Newborn overnights caregivers typically work 4 to 7 nights a week for the first few months. They will help get your baby on a night time schedule and stay with you until your baby is sleeping through the night.
Let our overnight caregivers help you be your best for your busy day!
