As a certified newborn care specialist I am, above all, another nurturing caregiver who can give you and your baby the confidence and support you need to ease into parenthood. I offer the following services to my clients.
Nighttime Newborn Care
This is one of the most requested services so that you can manage your busy days without the extra stress of sleepless nights. By 12 weeks, I will guarantee to have your baby sleeping through the night. I will take the night shift 5 nights a week (Sunday-Thursday is the most requested nights) for 10-12 weeks. During my shift, you get a full night’s sleep so that you can guide your infant through the daytime portion of our schedule. Working together, your infant will stay asleep all night by the 12th week.
In-home consultations are key opportunities to observe my techniques and to experience the delights of a happy and healthy baby. You and I will work together in caring for your little one and addressing any sleeping or feeding challenges.
The rate for in-home consultations is $250.00 for two hours. Longer in-home consultations are available. A two-hour minimum applies.
Corrective Sleep Habits
When your baby is older than 12 weeks and is still not falling asleep and staying asleep for naps or for 12 hours each night, you may just need 2 to 4 nights of corrective sleep training services. Perhaps your baby is fussy and can’t get to sleep without being rocked, being driven around in the car or sleeping with you in your bed. There are steps we can take to teach your baby to fall asleep without help and to stay asleep in his or her own bed. Imagine the difference with your baby waking up refreshed and happy from naps and with the whole house sleeping all night long.
Please call for rates.
Reflux and Colic Treatment
Crying for no apparent reason or vigorous crying at certain times of the day are common indicators of colic. Frequent and recurrent vomiting and spitting up are just a few indicators of reflux. I have extensive experience dealing with reflux and colic. I will teach you about both conditions and show you methods you can use to relieve your baby’s discomfort. I may also be able to suggest to you medical treatments for reflux that you can pursue with your pediatrician. Best of all, you and your baby will both be happy and comfortable.
Mom’s Off Duty Night
If all you need is a good night’s rest for yourself, I am available to step in and give you a well-deserved break. I will continue right where you leave off and make sure the baby is cared for throughout the night so that tomorrow gets off to a great start.
Call me to set up an immediate in-home consultation or to reserve sleep training services before your baby arrives. You can leave a message 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
