What is a Night Nurse?

Baby Nurse, Night Nanny and Newborn Care Specialist all have the same meaning…especially to new, sleep-deprived parents.  The term Baby Nurse is misleading.  A Baby Nurse is a medically trained infant specialist with extensive hands-on experience.  She comes into the home to assist new parents with the day-to-day care of their newborn.  The concept of Night Nurse began when mothers and mothers-in-law would offer their precious daughters two weeks of night care for their new grandchildren.  Night Nursing has now grown from grandmothers providing care, to trained professionals giving top-notch service to new families.


How Does it Work?

A new mother needs to take good care of herself, in order to rebuild her strength.  Proper rest, and good nutrition during the first few weeks are important.  The weeks following the birth of your baby/babies are very important, as your body returns to normal, following labor and delivery. 

At the same time, you are welcoming a new life into your world.  As new parents, we tend to have very unrealistic expectations of ourselves and our new baby/babies. 

  • Remember they do not come with instructions. 

This is why hiring Rita's Baby Nursing Service to help with this transition will be a benefit to you, your husband/partner and your baby.  Rita's Baby Nursing Service will be the best decision you can make. Our proven system ensures you and your baby will sleep better and both will be more healthy.
