What is a
Newborn Care Specialist?

Bringing a newborn into the world is a joyous and transformative experience, but it comes with its share of challenges and adjustments. Sleepless nights, feeding routines, and the overall well-being of the infant can sometimes be overwhelming for new parents.

Hiring a Newborn Care Specialist with Household Staffing can provide the invaluable expertise needed to solve these challenges.

The Newborn Care Specialist

A Newborn Care Specialist (NCS), often referred to as a baby nurse or infant care specialist, is a trained professional specializing in providing comprehensive care for newborns and support for new parents during the crucial early weeks or months of a baby’s life. These specialists bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to guide parents through the maze of caring for their newborns.

On average, our Newborn Care Specialists and Night Nannies we place have more than five years of professional experience caring for newborns.

Training & Certification

Newborn Care Specialists typically undergo specialized training programs covering newborn care techniques, feeding practices, sleep training methodologies, and postpartum support. Certification from recognized organizations adds credibility to a specialist’s qualifications, ensuring they are well-equipped to provide expert care.

Most of the Newborn Care Specialists we place hold multiple certifications and participate in regular training programs.

When to Hire

Hiring a Newborn Care Specialist is a personal choice and depends on various factors, including the family’s needs, lifestyle, and available support system. Families with first-time parents, those with parents returning to work, multiple births, postpartum recovery, or exceptional circumstances may find the expertise of an NCS particularly beneficial.
