You Need A Doula; Here’s Why
Being a new mom comes with a few difficulties, it’s even harder when you already have kids, and you just had a new baby. No matter how much practice you have had with the ‘mom thing’, you cannot cheat nature, you will eventually get tired. You have to wake up in the morning to make sure the other kids are prepped and ready to go to school, you also have to make sure that they do their homework when they get back home. Oh! There is laundry. And just in case you think you have all of the above covered, there is also the part of having all your kids talk to you at the same time, and you have to be actively involved in this conversation because you are ‘mom’.
When you look at all of these, the idea of having yet another kid might begin to sound scary, and this is why you need a Doula. Someone who will take care of your baby when you have to tend to the rest of the children, and even when you are asleep.
Here are a few reasons why you need a Doula.
Its exhausting when your newborn needs to be fed every 2-3 hours. But you have to get up anyway, whether you feel like it, or not. This is where a Doula comes in, you need all the rest you can get if you are going to resume mom duties with the rest of your children by morning. The Doula tends to your baby, while you sleep, this way, you can wake up very early, ready and agile enough to start your activities for the day.
You need your head in the right place:
When you have to tend to the baby and the rest of the kids all by yourself, your mind is often all over the place. You are listening to Brian chatter about a new teacher at school, you are helping Natasha with her homework, and then the baby starts crying; you immediately run from them to go check why the baby is crying, and then you run back to continue from where you stopped. This will distort your thought process and coupled with the sleepless nights, you just might end up with a bad headache eventually.
At Night Owl Nanny Care, we provide overnight care for your baby. While you grab that beauty sleep and allow your mind and body to rest, we do the job of staying awake and making sure your baby is well tended to. Thus giving you the chance to wake up strong, agile and ready for the day.
We understand how hard it is for you to juggle ‘mom’ duties and ‘new mom’ duties at the same time, so we help with the ‘new mom’ duties, which includes all the activities concerning the newborn.
If you need a nanny or a Doula to take care of your newborn while you catch a much needed snooze, we have got the right nannies to handle the night mom duties in more ways than one.
Call us to book your Night Nanny today!
If there’s one thing that’s almost as synonymous with new babies as excitement and joy, it’s sleep deprivation – it’s not uncommon for newborns to wake up needing a feed, diaper change, and cuddles every three hours or so during the night. After the marathon of pregnancy and labor, the first few weeks with a new baby at home can be exhausting and highly emotional for new mothers, and stressful for new dads.
Why Night Nannies are needed more
With more and more new families living away from traditional helpers like grandparents and extended family, a night nanny can help get your new family off to a healthy start. Our night nannies can support you with breastfeeding (or bottle feeding for you while you sleep through the night), changing diapers, swaddling and settling your baby. They will also quietly do essential chores around the house like washing, folding and putting away your infant’s laundry, washing and sterilizing bottles/pumping equipment, taking out smelly diaper pails, and even helping you with your baby’s first baths.

Whether this baby is your first or a new addition to an already busy family, you’ll appreciate the calm, supportive help of Night Owl Nanny Care. We have an amazing team of Doulas and Newborn Care Specialist located in Denver and Hawaii. Let us help you adjust to life with your newborn.

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.

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.

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.
What needs to be done before the baby arrives?
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.
Wash and put all clothes away.
Daily Baby Stuff
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
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.
