Denver Doula’s

Denver doula

Emotional and physical support is one of the most important things that a woman needs before, during, and after childbirth. Doula is a great option to consider. Your Doula will be by your side every step of the way, helping to provide the most satisfying birth experience possible. If you are pregnant or a new mother in Denver, CO, we invite you to contact Night Owl Nanny Care to learn more about the Doula services that are available. 

Your body is going through many changes during pregnancy, and it can be helpful to have a listening ear to offer advice and support along the way. Many women choose a Doula early in their pregnancy, so that they have the same support system throughout their pregnancy.

Doulas are medically trained to offer support during and after pregnancy, and can offer the comfort and guidance that you need. Together, you will develop a birth plan and you will prepare physically and mentally for the delivery of your new baby.

Doula Care during Birth

Having a Doula by your side during the birth experience is a great way to get the assistance that you need, and your Doula can be an advocate to ensure that your birth plan is followed. Doulas are very supportive of the decisions that are made by your family, and will help by easing the tension and fear that women often feel about labor and delivery.

Your Doula will offer assistance while you are in labor, helping with relaxation exercises and labor positions. The extra support will allow your partner to be mentally and emotionally present during the birth. When the baby is born, your Doula will immediately assist with breastfeeding and the other post-birth bonding activities that you should enjoy with your child.

Doula Care after Birth

After the baby has arrived, you will need the extra support to learn how to care for your new bundle of joy. A Doula can assist with the transition from the hospital to your home, and will offer the caring support that you need.

Many mothers choose to hire a Night Owl Nanny to help with nighttime feedings and newborn care. It is a relief to have an extra set of hands around the house, so that you can recover and rest after a long pregnancy.

If you are pregnant or have a newborn, then we invite you to contact us to learn more about the services that are available. Our Denver, Colorado Doulas and nannies are available to support in any way that you need, and we will cater your service based on your preferences and desires.

When to start Sleep Training an Infant

Age

Infant Sleep Training can start as early as 3 months. Twins and Preemies will usually need to wait a couple weeks or months after 3 month marker. Your Sleep Trainer can give you a better idea once they go over gestational age.

Weight

Babies weight needs to be 10-12 pounds, at least. Some babies reach this weight quickly and easily, while other infants are little guys. All very common and nothing to stress about. Your baby will gain weight in time, no rush.  Formula can be more filling and help pack on those extra pounds. No pressure to start using formula, just an option for parents if they are trying to get longer stretches and pack on a few extra pounds. If you’re worried about your babies weight, please chat with your physician. 

Ounces per day

24-32 ounces per day is mandatory to start training. If they are not up to 24 ounces (including a dreamfeed) a day, they still need to be fed at night.

Patience is a key component when it comes to Sleep Training requirements. All babies grow and develop at different rates. Its very common for a 3 month old to not weigh or eat the required amount, to start sleep training. Be patient with your baby as they develop into the next milestone.

The first 3 days of breastfeeding 

skin to skin

Breastfeeding struggles include: latch, milk supply, bonding, improper position and sore nipples.  92 percent of new mothers said they had troubles breastfeeding. You are not alone. You should have an endless amount of resources around you after baby is born. Welcome these suggestions. As the days move on you will find your support team may have gone back to work and or think you’ve got it.

Who has the knowledge

postpartum doula Denver

The nurses at the hospital should have lots of knowledge to help with latching and milk supply. If your problems arise after you are home, your night nurse and or doula should have plenty of tips to guide you to success. Still having difficulties? Reach out to your local lactation source. They can be found at hospitals and community events for moms. Most insurance should cover your lactation consult. Check with your insurance to see who is in your network.

Breastfeeding Help

Relax! Babies can feed off your stress and in return makes them stressed. 30 years ago docs had moms drink a beer to relax them and have the milk supply arrive. This trick is still used today. Obviously, pump and dump that first supply after beer.

 

Lay on your back while breastfeeding. Baby led breastfeeding.

Sometimes baby isn’t hungry. Offer breast when you and baby are calm. A lot of the times baby gets frustrated when mom is forcing a feeding and baby actually is just tired. Relax, enjoy, and read your babies cues.

Find a night nurse with breastfeeding experience to help you at night.

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.

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.

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.

Postpartum Doula Denver

What does a Postpartum Doula do?

Postpartum Doula

Postpartum Doula Denver

A postpartum doula is a trained professional, that supports mom and baby after delivery. This can be very helpful for the new mom as well as the experienced mom. After birth your’e exhausted, emotions are high, and lots of decisions need to be made. A postpartum doula provides you with options and clarity.

You may need your doula in the hospital, at home, doctors appointments, or at night. Your doula and you will make a schedule to assist you when its most beneficial to your families needs. Postpartum Doulas can assist when you aren’t bonding right away, having mood disorders, or even feeling overwhelmed.

 Doulas assist with breastfeeding (singles and multiples), bonding with the baby, bathing, errands, and small chores. They can assist with sibling and dad bonding with baby, multiple births, postpartum depression, overall support and encouragement.

A mom recently told me “All moms are scared. Scared during pregnancy, scared during birth, and scared after birth”. The whole process is scary. Yes, very rewarding, but the fear of making the right decisions is always lurking. Your Doula will help you navigate all options and help your family make the best choice for your baby and family.

All doulas offer their own expertise. It can be sleep training, essential oils, placenta capsulation, so make sure to pick the Doula that fits your family needs. A lot of the times its an outside pair of eyes that sees what a mom, parent or baby needs to make this new life change easy and rewarding.

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.

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.

  • 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.

Night Owl Nanny Care

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.
