Baby Nurse Services ~ FAQs
How does the process work?
Families complete our basic family registration form online and a placement coordinator will contact you soon to review your needs and our process further. We will check availability and select a caregiver most suitable for your job based on dates, location, duration, preferences, schedule, pets, etc. We will email you the resume/profile of the baby nurse for your review. If time and availability allow, we can set up a meeting and or phone call.
What are the qualifications of the baby nurses?
We refer the same group of newborn specialists and know each caregiver we recommend. Baby nurse is a general term used usually to describe certified newborn care specialists and postpartum aides who exclusively care for newborns and provide postpartum support to new parents. They have received newborn care training as well as newborn CPR. They have a wealth of experience and knowledge about providing care for newborns including sleep training, breastfeeding, routine and schedule development, colic, reflux, preemie care, twins and triplet care, and much more. They have helped many families and have excellent newborn care references.
How long should we hire a baby nurse and are there any minimum requirements?
Some families hire a baby nurse for two weeks and others for up to 6 months or more. It ultimately will depend upon your family needs and budget but 90% of our clients extend care services beyond original requested time. We find that 2-3 months is a good minimum to receive the most benefit from hiring a baby nurse. More Than A Nanny requires a 10-day minimum. It is helpful to understand how long you may want a baby nurse since selection is highly based on job duration for advance scheduling purposes.
How far in advance should we reserve a baby nurse for our newborn?
As far in advance as possible! Although we can accommodate last minute requests, the caregiver may only be available for a short while before starting with another family previously reserved. We can select the most suitable person for your family with advance scheduling.
Why isn't there a big difference in price between night and 24 hour care?
Schedule is mostly a matter of what works best for your family. Our 24/7 baby nurses will not need to commute back and forth to your home each day and will also be provided meals/food and accommodations. 24/7 baby nurses will also need some uninterrupted sleep at some point during the course of the day.
What are the rates and fees?
We offer flexible schedules and competitive rates in order to help as many families as possible, while still being able to retain the best baby nurses. After years of service, we have found our current rates to offer the most affordable opportunity to hire the most qualified care. Our NY, NJ & CT baby nurses come highly recommended and are worth every penny!
