Night Nanny for Twins

My Motherly Duties

Postpartum Doula and Night Nanny for my twins? Like all mothers we want to be the strong mom that did it herself. I was on maternity leave, why wouldn’t I wake with my twins and breastfeed? Its my motherly duty and job, my time to bond, right? The first night home with my babies went smoothly. “Ive got this” as I patted myself on the back. The next day I had energy. 

3 nights later I was shocked at how tired I was. Hating my husband for sleeping through the chaos, and leaving me the next day for work. I couldn’t wait to go to sleep day or night. Being cranky, and thinking motherhood wasn’t for me.

My husband realized the exhaustion and moodiness. His friend had a baby a few months ago and he’s never heard him complain about sleepless nights. He began to inquire with his buddy/co worker how he helped his wife and baby through this new sleepless life. He said “two words my friend, Night Nanny”.

How Night Owl Nanny Care saved my sanity

It took some convincing, but I agreed to meet with Night Owl to see how they could help us. 

Emily at Night Owl Nanny Care walked me through all the things a Postpartum Doula and Night Nanny can do for me. Breastfeeding assistance, bonding, swaddle assistance, helping babies sleep better, cleaning and mom/baby support. It was exactly what I needed. We met with 2 Postpartum Doulas/Night Nannies. Both Doulas were great. Lilly’s schedule fit ours best.

Postpartum Doula and Night Nanny for Twins

The Doula came to our home the next day. She helped me with breastfeeding, did my dishes, let me shower and take a nap. She came to doctor appointments and helped me see all options. I was very comfortable with her in our home and caring for my little guys.

That night she came back. She gave me a monitor to check on her or babies if I felt I needed to. Watching the monitor through out the night,  I thought “this is silly”. We turned off the monitor and slept, not like a baby, because they don’t sleep. We slept like a bears in hibernation. My husband and I woke up refreshed to our boys still sleeping. She taught us some sleep tricks and walked me through their night. 

Sleep Training, date nights and Vacation

 

Lilly Sleep Trained the boys at 4 months. Education on sleep training was provided. Our Sleep Specialist helped transition our boys into sleep lovers. She was sweet, helpful, and caring. 

Night Owl Nanny Care continues to offer their services. Our night nanny, and a few others have helped with date nights and we even got a parents getaway. We fully trust they provide excellent, screened nannies and doulas. We are pleased with the support they provided to our family.

postpartum depression

4 Things Parents Don’t Discuss Openly

Not bonding with baby

skin to skin

skin to skin

Its common to not bond with your baby right away. It happens quite often. So why is know one talking about it? Women fear they will be judged or something is wrong with them. The best way to bond with your baby, is skin to skin contact, staring into babies eyes and having baby mock your facial expressions. This can be helpful for mom, dad, and siblings. Moms, you will eventually bond with your baby. Give it time. Everything will be ok.

Breastfeeding is hard

breastfeeding

We are all told breastfeeding is the most natural thing in motherhood. Thats not the case for many. Latch and position are important. Most moms can’t throw their baby on a breast and expect perfect feedings. If you are having troubles breastfeeding, no worries, plenty of expertise around to help. The most helpful tip we can offer is lie down on back and have baby find your nipple. They can smell that delicious milk and become very determined. If breastfeeding is painful, unlatch and try again. You want babies mouth wide and around most of the nipple. Its a common struggle, you are not alone. It will get better.

Postpartum Depression

postpartum depression

Postpartum depression affects 1 in 7 women. Thats a huge amount of women struggling and being hush hush about it. It’s ok to be depressed after your baby arrives. Its common. Solution seeking should be your first priority. Talking to your doctor and family about your depression will open up some helpful solutions. You will get past your depression, and love your baby. This feeling is not permanent. Sleep is a huge impact on depression. Make sure you are taking care of yourself as well. If you have feelings of hurting yourself or your baby you should call 911 and or your doctor immediately. 

Everybody has a “right” opinion

swaddled baby

Everybody has an opinion or experience they want to share with you. How to swaddle or not to swaddle, bathe, give a binky, don’t give a binky. You will always be told what you are doing wrong and rarely what you are doing right. Most people are genuinely trying to be helpful. Do your own research, take into consideration of what others suggest and decide as a family whats best for you and your family. Parenting is hard at all stages. You’re doing a great job!

If you need assistance day or night, please reach out to us. We offer Postpartum Doula’s, Night Nannies and Sleep Training Specialist.

The Sleep Fairy

What is a Sleep Fairy?

A Sleep Fairy comes to your home and helps your toddler(s) or infant(s) sleep through the night. She educates the family on the sleep training process. Your sleep fairy will guide your tiny ones through the night and set them up for sleep success for life. If you have sleep regression, (which you will until kiddos are 4) you will have access to your sleep fairy for life via text, email or phone calls. 

How does it work?

Your Sleep Fairy has an initial evening visit to assess the nursery, bed time routine and daytime/nap routine. She will meet the toddler and make sure they are all set for sleep success in their room. Infants get to know their sleep trainer a bit in this visit, this will prevent “stranger danger”. She will then arrive between 6pm-11pm (8 hour minimum) to start the magic. She will ease and guide your infant or toddler through the night and teach your babies how to self soothe. This process tends to be 3-14 nights. Depending on the family and situation, it may take longer. 

Why are mornings so exciting for toddlers?

Toddlers are great at negotiating. Always needing one more hug, or a drink before they can sleep. How do we keep toddlers enticed to stay in bed? We bribe them. Whether its a balloon or two pieces of bacon in the morning, they will be very excited to see what The Sleep Fairy has left for them. The small prizes are only to get them started and excited about sleeping in their own bed all night.

How did the name ‘Sleep Fairy’ start?

Miss Cecile the Sleep Fairy helped a family get their toddler to sleep in his own room and stop coming into mommy and daddys room. This process was a quick 3 days. Miss Cecile The Sleep Fairy called and checked in with the toddler and the parents a few times within the next couple of weeks. If the parents had sleep regression they would “threaten” to call Miss Cecile. Miss Cecile was very much liked by the toddler and he did not want to “upset” her because he knew she meant business.

Do you need help with your infant or toddler? Call, email or text to chat with a sleep specialist today or tonight. We have helped hundreds of families. You will be pleasantly surprised on how quickly you can see results.

Nanny vs Daycare

Whats right for your family?

Nanny, denver nanny, daycare vs nanny

 

There is no right or wrong answer in choosing a nanny over a daycare, or vice versa. One will suit your needs more. It can be different for every family. Its a big decision and you want to weigh all the pros and cons of each. When it comes down to it, a lot of parents are choosing price over all other aspects.

The Pros and Cons of Daycare

Daycare Cons

  • Daycare cost roughly $972. a month for one child.
  • Your kiddos will be exposed to lots of germs.
  • Staff turnover can be very high.
  • You will have to get your kiddos dressed, fed (some daycares provide breakfast), and out the door.
  • Daycares have set hours. Working late? Daycare doesn’t care, you need to pick the kids up within a 30 minute block of closing time.
  • When your kids are too sick to go to daycare, you end up missing work as well.
  • Your kids can pick up bad habits at daycare. Example: Kicking, screaming, bad words, etc.

Pros of Daycare

  • If staff is sick or out, somebody will fill in. Your children will still be supervised by a teacher.
  • Your kids will be exposed to social interaction and learn some great growth and personal skills. Social skills, sharing, and working together.
  • Your child will be supervised by multiple adults at times. 
  • No need to pack a lunch. Daycare provides lunch and snacks.
  • Set hours can be very helpful. You can always rely on having coverage for your kiddos Monday through Friday 7:00 am-6:00pm. (Hours can vary per daycare.)

The Pros and Cons of a Nanny

Cons of a Nanny

  • Price is roughly $2,820 a month for one child.
  • If your nanny calls out, you will be staying home with your kiddos.
  • Nanny’s don’t always have a lot of learning activities through out the day like daycare does.
  • It can be hard to find a good fit/nanny  for your family.
  • At first you will have a stranger in your home, and thats scary for most parents.
  • Theres no guarantee your child won’t be mistreated.

Pros of a Nanny

  • Nannies do light housework and child laundry.
  • A nanny helps build consistency and stability with your child.
  • A nanny will provide bonding and caring with a parental surrogate. This helps with child development.
  • Your child is less likely to become sick from your nanny.
  • Your child will form a one on one bond with their nanny.
  • There is no rush in the morning to get your child up early, dressed and fed.
  • Your nanny can feed the kids breakfast in the morning.
  • Nannies tend to be more flexible with their schedules when you need to work late, or leave early in the morning. 
  • Your nanny can schedule play dates for social interaction.
  • Your nanny will most likely become apart of the family.

Nannys and Daycares all have pros and cons. Pick what suits your family’s needs. If you have suggestions or feedback we would love to hear it. Comment below on how you chose one or the other.

Night Owl Nanny Care

What does a Travel Nanny do?

Travel Nannies Help with many things

Caring for the children

Your traveling nanny will care for your children day and night.  Late dinners with friends or clients, your nanny will be with your child until you have released them to do otherwise. Whether its a vacation or you are traveling for work, your nanny will keep your child happy, engaged in learning and fun, fed, and making sure naps and bedtime are on a schedule.

Household duties of a Traveling Nanny

Your nanny will do anything child related. Child’s laundry, dishes, clean up the play area, washing sheets, sterilizing bottles, and taking diaper pale out to trash. Most nannies are more than willing to do other light household chores. Discuss with your nanny ahead of time to have a clear understanding of what is expected from your nanny. 

Errands

You are either busy playing, or working on your traveling adventure. No need to worry. Your nanny will keep track when diapers are running low or milk needs to be picked up. Your nanny will do light grocery shopping and help keep everything stocked for your child to thrive and stay healthy. Most parents provide a credit card or cash for the nanny to spend on play dates, milk, or other miscellaneous items the home or child may need. Please keep in mind you will have to pay for the transportation for your nanny and the children to take a cab, bus or subway to activities or store.

Paying your Nanny while traveling

Every nanny will be different but majority of traveling nannies have a similar request as follows: 

Paying for the travel of the nanny (plane ticket, baggage fees, cabs, etc.)

Hotel room. Discuss with your nanny before you travel what the room situation will be. Nannies will request to have their own room. If you are in a house or a hotel, keep your nannies privacy a priority. Traveling many days with a family can be draining and they need down time as well. 

Hourly fee

If you are leaving your child with the nanny for the night your nanny will request half the pay while sleeping. For example: If you pay your nanny $18 hourly, $9 hourly is expected while she is watching over them while sleeping. If your baby wakes in the middle of the night, it will either be the full $18 or  may be more for newborn or sleep training infants.

You will be expected to pay for the hours of travel. If its a 3 hour flight expect to pay for the hourly rate of 3 hours and give or take an hour at the airport. If she is helping get you on the plane, and playing with kiddos, she is working.

Things to keep in mind

Traveling is tiring in itself, add kiddos and unpacking, activities, etc. It adds up. Some parents and kids get cranky when traveling. Your nanny is trying their best to keep everyone happy. Please make sure your nanny does get a couple hours to themselves to sightsee or relax as well. 

Nannies become family in most cases. If the family is going out to dinner and you want the nanny to join, invite them out. They may love to be included or maybe they want to relax. If its a non work outing, don’t expect to pay, but make sure you and the nanny are on the same page.

Food

Expect to pay for your nannies food, unless otherwise discussed. If your nanny has a special diet they entertain, most nannies would be happy to shop for themselves if they can get their hands on food they enjoy. Eating out with the kids, dinners with the family (while working), groceries should all be paid for by the parents. If you want to give a $20 allowance for food, discuss with your nanny.

What does a new parent need? Sleep, Night Nanny, and more sleep

Sleep.

The average parent(s) work 40-50 hours a week. Leaving a few hours at home with their new baby. After a long day at work and traffic most parents just want to spend time with their kids before bedtime. We all hope that our babies are sleeping through the night by the time we return to work. Depending on weight and babies age that is always pending.

How does a working parent handle staying up all night with the baby and work? You don’t. You sleep. You hire a Newborn Care Specialist or Doula, also known as a night nanny, night nurse, or baby nurse. Its exhausting working on a lack of sleep, and then coming home to house duties and your family’s needs. Its only a matter of time before you get burnt out. Lets face it, we all fizzle at some point. You’re not alone! 

This service is for the new parents but also the already thriving parent. Your second kid you’re more willing to ask for help. Working, getting a toddler and your newborn dressed in morning and then heading out for the day is hard. Thousands of moms are asking for the help, don’t feel like you’re the only one wanting some extra hands and sleep.

Our night nannies care for your newborn through out the night. Feedings, diaper changes, baby laundry, tidy nursery, and setting up for sleep success (sleep training included). Your night nanny can have the baby ready and dressed for you to get out the door in the morning. The number one cause of postpartum depression is a lack of sleep. Don’t let your family and yourself go through the pain. We have nannies to help and you WILL ENJOY those nights of sleep.

How to prepare for a Baby

What needs to be done before the baby arrives?

baby67

You never know when that baby will arrive. Start early, around 32 weeks. When you get your energy back. You don’t want to wait too long, not only will you be big, and tired, but your baby may arrive early.  Don’t stress yourself out. Ask for help.

We will make this sweet and to the point.

Clothes

Wash and put all clothes away.

Daily Baby Stuff

 

baby37

Make sure crib, diaper changing table and swing are put together. Diapers, swaddles, lotion, put in its place. Once baby arrives home, you will be too tired to do chores.

Pack Hospital Bag

baby33

Extra clothes, slippers, diaper wipes, blankets, breast pads, snacks, etc. All in arms reach after baby arrives. Keep it in your car, starting early on. Plan on breastfeeding? It doesn’t always go as planned. Have formula and bottles on hand just in case. You will want to do your research on formula and make sure you have the right fit for your family. 

Freeze Healthy Meals

Have healthy meals prepped in your freezer for your family to heat up quickly. You may get lots of food from guests. Remember people don’t know your eating preferences as well as you do. Last thing you want to do, is stomach something you dislike.

How to get your Toddler Excited about a New sibling

New baby on the way

Its very exciting news to have a brother or sister on the way. Most kids are very excited at first. Once they realize all that undivided attention that was once on them, is now on their sibling, perspectives change a bit. I asked my parents when my sister was going back to the hospital. Its very common. How do we get them excited? We bribe them with gifts, like usual. 

Get your toddler excited

Tell them all the things they can do with their new sibling. They will have somebody to play with at all times. A forever friend. Excite them about how fun it will be. The important role a big sibling has. What they can do to help Mommy and Daddy when their sibling arrives. Show them the ultrasounds, feel when baby is kicking and let them help you decorate the nursery.

Gifts

Families have started this new trend of “the baby” giving their older sibling a “hello” gift. In return you have your toddler pick out a “welcome” gift for their new baby sibling. What toddler doesn’t love gifts? Its a fast way to a toddlers heart. It doesn’t have to be extravagant but get her excited about a gift and keep telling her, “maybe the Baby will get that for you”.

 

Attention 

Make sure your toddler is still getting lots of attention. Kisses and hugs from mom, dad, grandpa, the whole family. Take her and the new baby on “Sister dates” “Sibling fun”. Just so she knows she can have fun with her non mobile friend. She will want to show her baby sibling all the fun exciting things she sees. Some toddlers take a few to warm up to their new friend. Be patient, and encourage them to be happy and excited about their new friend.

5 things new Daddies need to know

New Dad

Being a new Dad can be scary, but the most rewarding feeling. There will be lots of things you didn’t know. You may feel unready or like this Dad thing wasn’t made for you. Good news is, all first time Dads are scared. Its very overwhelming at first. You will have many questions, don’t be afraid to ask. The hospital is a great learning time. Ask, ask, and then ask some more. Hospital staff has heard every question you could imagine.

Giving Birth

We’ve heard it is the most beautiful thing to watch. It is, but be prepared to see the not so beautiful part about it too. Your love may pee or poo, there will be blood and stuff you didn’t know existed. Be understanding and helpful during this time. That beautiful woman of yours has a lot to worry about while birthing. Being embarrassed about normal bodily, birthing functions should not have to be one of them. Don’t bring up how gross, or light headed you were because she was going through something 100 times harder. Give her love and support. Tell her how beautiful and brave she is. Thank her for bringing your child into the world. Some significant others give a “Birthing Gift”. Just a heads up, you may cry like a little baby. It will give you tears of joy you didn’t see coming. 

Baby’s need to burp after every feeding

Their wobbly heads make it hard to burp at first. Burping comes in many different positions. See which one works best for you. Have someone show you each way to burp and use the most comfortable to you. Spit up is very normal. Sometimes its seems like they spit up their whole feeding. It usually looks like more than what it is. If you feel they spit up excessively, talk to your doctor about GERD. Keep burp cloths handy. Keep baby upright 10-15 minutes after feeding. Keeping upright helps settle their tummy and should help with excessive spit ups.

Diapers

Grab both ankles with one hand and clean bottoms and genitals with the opposite hand. Diapers can leak. Make sure you keep diapers snug to bodies to prevent leaking. Babies poo will be a dark black color, and tarry-looking for first few days. It will turn green and yellow earth tones when the meconium (sterile poo) has expelled itself from the intestines. Babies can poo several times a day. Its usually very evident when they need a diaper change. Faces and loud noises from that tiny body will surprise you.

Pacifier

Discuss with your wife if you will be using pacifiers or not. Some dads give pacifiers when left alone with the baby. Its a quick solution to crying in most cases. Sometimes pacifiers can cause nipple confusion. If your wife is planning on breastfeeding, make sure you and her discuss pacifier plan. 

 

Mistakes

We all make mistakes when parenting. It happens, don’t be too hard on one another. First time parents should share things they learn, so they are on the same page. For example: My husband didn’t know babies shouldn’t have peanut butter before the age of one. We were scared and I was upset at first. Our baby is fine, no harm done (don’t try at home). We learned from it and tried to educate each other on bits we learned. Studies have varied since then so do your research. Help each other out and try to learn as much as possible in each month of your child’s development.

Have questions? Just ask. We have a community of parents asking the same thing. 

Let us know what we left out and what helped you as a new dad.

We are here to help!

A baby nurse is not an actual nurse or woman with a medical degree. Baby nurse, night nurse, Newborn Care Specialist and night nanny are all pretty much the same thing. A baby nurse provides overnight care for your newborn(s). They will come to your home between 7pm-11pm and stay anywhere from 6 am- 9:30 am depending on your families needs.

Logging sleep schedule, diaper changes and feedings. Your baby nurse will keep the nursery tidy.

Postpartum depression~ Sleep

Founder

Cecile

The owner Cecile Bergren is very hands on with the company and families. She surprisingly enough started when she was just 11 years old, caring for her newborn cousin. It seems crazy to her now, but she had a passion for infants at a very young age, and her family saw it and trusted her with that gift. Calling her the ‘Baby whisperer’ at such a young age has given her 20 years of rewarding experience. Her passion is helping families sleep so they can enjoy their time together even more. She loves to hear of the success stories and how things have improved inside a home when everyone is sleeping. She laughs “While the Snickers commercials are about not being yourself while you’re hungry, they are almost an exact duplicate of parents trying to make it through the day on no sleep.” Night Owl Nanny Care wants to help.

 

Merlin Magic Sleepsuit partnered with Night Owl Nanny Care

Magic SleepSuit

 

Our sleep training program is in depth, educational and guided. We know tired moms and dads don’t always have time or the energy to stick with a 3 night process of being firm. We welcome helpful tools, tricks and products to aid in making sleep transitions as smooth as possible. The winning combination of our Sleep Program and Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit, a patented swaddle transition product, is giving thousands of parents sleeping success.


The Magic Sleepsuit® is an innovative swaddle transition product that provides babies with a cozy, calming, and safe sleep environment. The patented Magic Sleepsuit is designed for babies who are ready to transition from the swaddle, yet still need that cozy and contained feeling to aid in their sleep. The Magic Sleepsuit is designed with the ABC’s of sleep in mind, Alone, Back sleeping in the Crib. It is to be used for back sleeping only in the crib, not in a Rock N Play, Dock A Tot or co sleeping environment.


The Magic Sleepsuit is the perfect transition product for parents who need a little extra help getting their infant to transition comfortably from swaddling around the three month mark. The inner layer of the Magic Sleepsuit is a breathable, soft jersey cotton, followed by a layer of polyfil, and an outer layer or either Microfleece or Cotton. It is designed with open hands and feet that allows a baby’s heat to dissipate as they sleep and a scooped neck that keeps the fabric away from the baby’s face. Either version can be used during any time of year as long as the baby’s room is kept on the cooler side as recommended by the AAP and only one layer is worn underneath.


The Magic Sleepsuit was designed by a mom going through probably a lot of the same sleep struggles that you are currently going through. Her young son wouldn’t sleep anywhere but the stroller. Being a Pediatric Physical Therapist and having a child not sleeping was making her desperate since she knew how important sleep is for proper development and for a happy baby. She used her background and small sewing skills to create sleep aid that gave him the “womb” like feel. To her surprise, it worked really well. When her daughter was born, she pulled her creation back out and used it once again with success. By the time her third child came, she shared her creation with her mommy group. Realizing the success that they all had, she and her husband decided her invention was indeed magic and the Magic Sleepsuit was born. Never did she imagine the success and help that her product would provide to so many sleep deprived parents!

3 tips to get your infant sleeping through the night

3 Easy Sleep Training Tips

Is your Infant not sleeping through the night? It can be very hard on a family when you have an infant waking up 2-4 times a night. Mom, dad, siblings and baby all become exhausted and irritated. A lack of sleep affects everyone in the household. Get more sleep for you and your family. These 3 tips can help you and your baby sleep through the night.

 

Make the nursery dark.

Use black out curtains, and cover all light in the room. Light from windows, underneath the door, humidifier light, monitor light, firearm light, cover it with a piece of tape. Make the room pitch black.
If you need to go into the nursery at night, use a red light. Less stimulating for an infant. This creates a womb like feel for the baby, and creates a sleep environment that won’t simulate baby if they wake in middle of night. Sleep training a child is hard, blacking out the room will make it easier for baby to continue sleeping.

White noise machine

When sleep training an infant a white noise machine on ocean or rain can be very helpful. You want the waves noises to be loud. You want it to drown out any noise going on outside the nursery room. Make sure to cover the lights on white noise machine.

Bedtime routine

Sleep training success doubles when creating a bedtime routine. Make a bedtime routine of 7 things/ habits. Examples: Change diaper, sing a song, lavender lotion, read books, pajamas, etc. 7 things you want to do before baby goes to sleep for the night. Start night time routine 30 minutes prior to bedtime every night.
