Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A NEWBORN CARE SPECIALIST/ INFANT SPECIALIST?

 

In a way, a newborn care specialist is like Mary Poppins. It sounds funny and a little fanciful, in reality, we come in and take care of all your needs after you deliver. So, what does that mean?

The minute you walk in the door, we are waiting, or we arrive in the evening giving you time to adjust as a family.

Personally, giving you time to adjust is my FAVORITE thing to do.

So, what do Newborn Care Specialist do when they arrive? First is make sure mom and dad are comfortable, along with checking on your baby. Usually we sit down and go over any concerns, check on how nursing is going. If we feel mom is struggling, we will line up an IBCLC.   

Our main job is to take care of your baby at night so parents can rest without worry. We stock the nursery, make bottles, clean pump parts, baby laundry along with bringing baby to mom for nursing or we will feed the babies a prepared bottle.

The process is to make sure having a baby is seamless. I love my job walking in and instantly seeing what I can do to make things easier. As a newborn care specialist, we are specifically trained in all baby care and parent bonding. We offer education and resources. If we have concerns we will talk to parents and see a doctor.

Most contracts will be 12 weeks long. During this time frame, we are working with the daytime schedule, naps, feedings, and playtime. Setting healthy guidelines for sleep shaping. Which will allow us to guide your baby to sleep longer at night, because they are getting all the ounces during the day to slowly sleep shape during the night so by 12 weeks baby will sleep 10-12 hours which is the ultimate goal of a newborn care specialist.

Of course, all babies may take a little longer or shorter time to learn how to sleep. We have to consider the health of the baby to make sure he/she is growing and pediatrician has no concerns. Some parents want one feeding throughout the night which is no problem. Overall the welfare of the family is the most important part of our career.

 

Sleep Success through a more NATURAL Sleep Approach

Do you struggle with bedtime? Does your little one stay up all night? Have you felt helpless and exhausted? We have a natural and family friendly approach to training your baby. Will work with your parenting style bringing together peace and calm to EVERY bedtime. 

As a sleep coach we support and look at the whole picture. Our focus is the daytime routine and how many ounces your baby consumes, sleeping arrangements, daycare.

This is where it is helpful to hire an infant sleep coach, that will make a personalized more holistic sleep plan.

What about the pesky sleep regression (a.k.a. transition)? Transitions are periods when a baby or child is having a growth spurt! We help adjust your baby during this period. Each family will need to fill out a questionnaire allowing us to personalize your support.
