Night Nannies for newborns
Having a new baby is a blessing, but a very exhausting. The one problem new moms suffer from after coming out of the delivery room is catching a good nights rest, without any interruptions. While most moms with newborn babies think they can do it all, lack of sleep is detrimental to a woman recovering after giving birth.
Now, there is a solution, they’re called night nannies. These professional ladies will help you manage your babies at night so that you can sleep well and bond as needed with your baby during the day.
What is a night nanny?
Night nannies, maternity nurses, or baby whisperer; are women that help care for your baby throughout the night while you enjoy some recovery sleep.
Their responsibility centers on taking care of the baby, feeding them, changing the diaper, hushing them to sleep, and keeping them calm all night till the morning.
It is a full day’s job for a night you might say; however, for mothers that intend to use this service to care for their baby, caution is the keyword when looking for the right night nanny to care for your precious loved ones.
5 tips to ease the stress of searching for the right night nanny
Ask, Ask and Ask some more
Your baby is very precious, and leaving them in the hands of a stranger just to catch sleep is not worth it if the wrong choice is made.
Therefore, ask around, ask friends that have tried it, join parenting community online or seek information at a hospital or childcare center about night nannies and if there is a recommended group, society or person that can suitably fit into your home and in your baby’s life.
Check how much experience the night nanny has?
While some programs and establishments provide certifications for learning how to be a night nanny, it is an extra positive to have one that has worked with children (a nurse is even better), a mother (a great option). These two criteria are added values that will enable you to make the right choice.
Has some form of child’s health knowledge
Babies are unpredictable, a sound and healthy baby can go from playful to running a temperature. If you are looking to hire a night nurse, she must have some knowledge of child health, especially how to perform CPR, basic first-aid treatment and when to dial 911 for help.
Compassionate and stamina
Caring for newborns is exhausting- waking up during your sleep can be mentally draining and overwhelming, hence your night nanny should have the stamina to keep up with your baby’s habits.
So if you have a fussy baby, your night nanny must be compassionate with enough positive energy that will calm your baby and put your mind at rest.
We’ve got you covered
Do you need a night nanny but don’t know where or how to start? Well, don’t worry, we have you covered. When you come to us for a night nanny for your newborn, we will provide you with all the background and reference information to you for the night nanny of your choice.
Furthermore, all the nannies on our team have an excellent track record with an experience of more than three years caring for babies as night nannies.
Finally, my baby can start sleeping through the night
For every new parent, there’s one day to look forward to with excitement and anticipation – the day their new arrival finally sleeps through the night without interruption. But getting there can often seem impossible; there are hundreds of books touting different sleep training methods on the market, and discouragingly, many of them strongly suggest that if you miss the ‘magic window’ for sleep training – usually said to be between age 3-4 months – you’ll never be able to get your child sleeping soundly through the night.
We Sleep Train infants starting at 3 months – toddlers
At Night Owl Nanny Care, we know that’s simply not the case. Any child can be successfully sleep trained, even toddlers. While it’s true that you can often begin sleep training around the three-month mark (and get into good habits that will make sleep training easier), all is not lost if you’re lagging behind a little with getting into the sleep training groove.
Sleep Training is individualized to your family
Another common misperception? That sleep training is cruel! The truth is, there is a lot more to sleep training than letting your baby ‘cry it out’ for hours on end, and there’s no need to torture anyone in the family to get your baby or toddler sleeping soundly. Our sleep training Denver specialists are always available to help, whether that’s providing you with an in-home consultation and personalized plan for sleep training, or staying overnight with your child to do the sleep training themselves.
With support and guidance from our sleep training specialists, soon everyone in the family will be enjoying a full night’s sleep – and no doubt, a better mood in the morning!

Your baby needs to weigh at least 10-12 pounds. We want to make sure they are healthy with weight gain to cut off night feedings.

We know sleep is highly important, we also know financially we can’t always afford everything we desire. Our elite team understands not everyone has a guest house or the finances to put us up in a hotel. We will work with you to come up with a more affordable solution or suggest some other options families have utilized.

Give yourself, and your baby the benefit of sleep. 3-7 nights of change, and then you can go back to being the best version of yourself. You deserve this, your baby and or toddler deserve sleep.

Toddler waking up
It happens, we get it. Toddlers are by far the best negotiators. You almost see a little lawyer in the them when they plead their case. Toddlers have regression in sleep patterns a couple times a year. Its very common and certainly fixable. Within a few days of consistency you will be enjoying your sleep anew.
Toddler Sleep tips:
No negotiating. Keep the rules firm.
Give them a choice. They feel like they have a form of authority in the situation. Even if its something small. “Green pajamas or red?”.
Stay consistent with the rules for bed time.
Reward them for sleeping in their bed.

Why would my employer purchase a Night Nanny?
When you are up all night with your newborn, you come in to work exhausted, grouchy and not giving a 100% to your job. Sales go down, office morale plummets, and your safety precautions decrease. You are not the same dedicated, hard working employee you once were. More errors occur on the job when an employee is tired. This package keeps you safe and your company safe.
Night Nanny Corporate Package
Your employer purchases the corporate package for employees that have recently had a baby. Man or woman, your employer provides you with two nights with a night nanny and two nights with a Sleep Training Specialist.
You can go into work rested, and ready to work. The company gets their great hard working employee back and you continue to thrive in your home and with your career.
How does my employer purchase this package?
They simply call and set up the package for their company. The employee will fill out the parent application and schedule the nights they need help with. Additional nights available for purchase.
Helping companies thrive, one night of sleep at a time.
Sleep Training an infant(s)
Anything baby related, your Baby Nurses will assist with while you sleep. Laundry, sterilize bottles and bread pump, fold laundry, tidy nursery, anything baby related.
You barely had time to brush your teeth today, right? We know you get busy, and the day flies when you have a new baby at home. Our Baby Nurses can bathe your babies, put on pjs and do the bedtime routine.

Assemble baby items
Exhausted after a full day of mom life? Of course you are. Leave the new baby monitor, humidifier, and baby seat/swing to your night nanny. We can assemble most items while you sleep.
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.
Not bonding with baby
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
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 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
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.
Night Owl Nanny Care
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.
Not in the state of Colorado? Not a problem. We have guided sessions via FaceTime or Skype.
Give your family, and yourself the gift of sleep!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Did we forget something? Add your thoughts below.
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.
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”.
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.
Did we forget something important? Just add it in comments below.
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.

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!
