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.
While you sleep your baby nurse will feed, burp, and settle your newborn back down to sleep. Specialized in newborns they make sure your infant(s) tummy is settled and ready to be laid back down flat on their back. Experienced in reflux, oxygen, multiples, gas, constipation, breastfeeding, setting your newborn up for sleep success and sleep training. Your baby nurse will keep a log of how the night went. Logging sleep schedule, diaper changes and feedings. Your baby nurse will keep the nursery tidy. Doing any baby related chores, including baby laundry, sterilizing bottles/breast pump equipment, and taking out diaper pail.
Baby nurses will work around your families needs. Helping anywhere from 1-7 nights a week. You will grow to love and trust your nanny very quickly. Whether this is your first or your third child, this service comes in very handy. Let a caring professional and experienced baby nurse care for your baby so you can sleep.

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 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.
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.

The hardest part about traveling with an infant or child is the fear of others being upset they may have to listen to a screaming kid the whole flight. Not knowing if your babies ears hurt. How do we ease our minds when traveling with a kid? We take a few important steps.
Surprisingly some kids do shockingly well. It can be exciting for a child. Its new, its fun, its distracting, and its a lot of attention from strangers.
Airlines allow families to board first. Get on the flight early and get snacks, milk, books, coloring books out to have ready when your child needs some distractions.
Time the flight around nap time.
Be sure to do all the same cues you use for nap time at home. Blanket, sound machine (headphones), warm milk, read a book. Whatever your routine is at home, try to mimic it on the plane.
Wear your baby on the plane.
If your infant is small enough to wear on the plane, it is advised to do so. If your child is older they have rolling, traveling car seats you can push or pull the child in. Strollers can be taken to the end of the gate as well.
Give nearby passengers goodie bags.
Pinterest has cute ideas on giving little goodie bags with ear plugs, candy and a little note apologizing if the kids are loud. If your kid(s) are old enough have them pass them out to a few people around them. This reminds the passengers how cute your kids are and that they are in fact children.
Carseats are considered “damaged”
after one use of travel. This is only if you check the car seat. You may want to look into renting a carseat if you are renting a vehicle. Lugging around a carseat can be a lot of work. If you can rent or use a family members, do so.
Toys, books, movies and food.
Make sure you have plenty of toys, movies, books and food for your little one. Distraction is key. Don’t forget their favorite blanket. Headphones can be helpful with noises. Make sure baby drinks while airplane is taking off and landing. This will help his hers pop.

When to Start
As a new parent, you’ve had an exhausting couple of months – up at all hours of the night, feeding and caring for your newborn. It’s been tough yet wonderful, but it’s time for your baby to start sleeping through the night, so you can, too.
At about 3 to 5 months or at 10 to 12 pounds, your baby will be ready for sleep training – gradually teaching him or her to sleep longer periods of time through the night.
Sleep training can be tricky, especially when you, yourself are exhausted.
This is where Night Owl Nanny Care steps in – guiding you and helping you train your baby to make sleeping through the night an established routine.
We understand that sleep training your baby is no easy task, especially for new parents. Which is why we offer top of the line service to sleep train and care for your baby while you sleep soundly. This leaves you well rested the next day, and ready to care for your little one and spend quality time with each other.
Are you located outside of Colorado? Not a problem. We can consult with you via Facetime or video chat, for an expert assessment of the nursery and to go over sleep training methods with you, so you can have the confidence to do it on your own.
You can then contact us at any time during a 30 day period to discuss how the nights are going, what needs to be changed, or to ask any questions you may have during the sleep training. You will always have the help you need, when you need it.
No matter where you are located, we are dedicated to help you and your baby to better sleep, and an improved quality of life.
