Do you have to do Sleep Training? No, not at all. Everyones goal should be to set up sleep success from the start. This way your little one creates healthy sleep habits on their own and gradually sleeps through the night around 3 months. You’re the parent, and you know what is best for your family. Don’t ever feel pressured into doing a certain sleep training or method you are not comfortable with. Every family has different needs, and that is why each sleep training is catered to your families individual needs.
Is your baby meeting the markers to start Sleep Training?
Every agency and doctor has different recommendations for Sleep Training ages. Please do your research and start when you are comfortable with the age requirements. Some recommendations start at 3 weeks, we start at 3 months (meeting other requirements, to be continued), and some start at 6 months of age. There is no right or wrong answer. It’s what your family agrees on and feels comfortable with.
Weighing 10-12 pounds. 10-12 pounds shows us a healthy weight for them to do 10-12 hours stretches.
Eating 25-32 ounces in the daytime. If your little one is really close to 25 ounces, we can add in a dream feed to help them get the required ounces in the day time.
Now the Tips
I know you’re busy so lets get right to it.
You need a dark room. Black out curtains, cover the camera light, light from the hallway peeking through, it all triggers their little brains when they wake up.
White noise on a healthy level, no higher than 60 DB. You can download an app to confirm it is at a safe level. White noise machines are not monitored safely by the creators. They can go up to levels of 120DB. This recreates the womb noise and can help keep outside noise from disturbing them .
Cluster feed before bedtime. Fill those little tummies up to help give them long stretches.
Bedtime routine of 7-8 things every night, at the same time.

The first few months after having a newborn can be very tasking for the mother, especially if she has other children to take care of. Or if you’re a new mom traveling to the island to vacation, we want to help you enjoy the island while resting and taking care of yourself.
This is harder at night because newborns do not seem to understand the concept of time, hence the staying awake during the night and sleeping during the day. This where a Night Owl nanny comes into help. A night nanny has the task of taking up the night duties of your newborn while you catch much-needed sleep
When you have other activities to carry on with during the day, you cannot afford to miss a second of snoozing. If you do not have a night nanny, you will be losing more than a second of that night snoozing because your newborn will keep you awake. Its not always for food, or dirty diapers. Sometimes your newborn just needs some comfort or snuggles.
Night Owl Hawaii offers doulas and newborn care specialists, with all the knowledge and information about taking care of a newborn. You have absolutely nothing to worry about when getting the services of the doula on the island.
What are the duties of a night nanny in Oahu?
Night Owl Nanny Hawaii will perform all the duties of a mom to a newborn, (except breastfeeding) can be handled by the newborn care specialist. From diaper changing, feedings, to baby laundry. Think of anything you need to be done for your newborn, and they can handle it. They are experienced and trained to act as a substitute mother when you are resting.
If your baby is craving personal contact while you are sleeping , they can give snuggles and rock your baby to keep them calm while you catch up on much needed rest.
With all the stress that comes during the day, and your healing body, a good night’s sleep cannot be, and should not be negotiated. And to help you get this sleep you need to get the services of Night Owl Nanny Hawaii for your newborn.
When a newborn arrives, it is easy for the mother to forget that she is human too. They usually go into a full superhuman mode which usually involves staying awake at night when the baby wakes up and starts crying, and then carrying on through the day like she was not awake for the better part of the night taking care of the baby.
If this continues for a while, a breakdown is inevitable, because the mother is forgetting that she just went through what many would term a miracle- bringing a human to the world, and she needs to heal. Mentally, physically and otherwise, she needs to heal. This healing will not happen if she is depriving her body of sleep.
Our services spread through out Hawaii, our main hub is located on Oahu. We can fly Night Nannies to other islands if you are comfortable with the Night Nanny staying with your family. We provide trained and professional newborn care specialists, our night nannies are trained to administer care to your baby and yourself if needed. The island of Oahu, has amazing Ohana feels, we offer the Ohana night nanny service.
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 on Oahu 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 Hawaii. 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.
A Postpartum Doula supports mom and baby after birth. This comes with many rewarding duties. Mom will have a lot going on, a doula is there to help clear her mind with all possible options. A Doula will support mom with breastfeeding, bonding, sleep schedules, sibling bonding, mom and baby chores, and overall emotional and physical support.
Night and Daytime Support
This can include daytime and night time support. Helping mom rest, answer questions she may be having, and educating her on her options with no judgement. Daytime duties can include letting mom rest, light household chores, making food, baby laundry, caring for newborn, and breastfeeding support. Night time duties can include caring for newborn while mom sleeps, washing bottle/breast pump equipment, changing diapers, settling baby back to sleep, and snuggles.
This role as a postpartum doula does not include medical advice, driving mom or baby, and babysitting.
If your doula suspects postpartum depression or a physical abuse situation, her role is to get the mom and or baby the support they need with no judgement. After birth, hormones can be elevated and emotions run high. Your doula will support you through this time and help with solutions, offer support groups, or gather family support for you when needed.
Your Doula quickly becomes a family friend. Each doula comes with different and unique education and skills. This can range from essential oils, sleep training help, grief counseling, to postpartum depression expertise.
Love your Doula
Interviewing your Doula ahead of time to find the perfect match for your family is recommended. Its important for your personalities to mesh well. This woman will be with your family in a very vulnerable state. You should feel comfort having he or she with you, and trusting what she says to make your transition with your new baby as easy as possible. Your doula will be available via text/phone, email and in person. It is important for your doula to be professional, knowledgeable, kind and understanding. Your doula should feel like your trusted right hand.
How long does a Doula stay with a family?
Your postpartum doula is usually involved within the first 3 months of your child’s life. They can support you for a few weeks up to a few months. Doula’s support your family in many different ways, and it can be catered individually to your families needs and their expertise. We do most anything baby and mommy related.
Finding the perfect Doula for your family
When looking for your perfect doula. Do your research, feel comfortable, ask questions, and make sure you have your postpartum plan clear with your providing doula. This process will be rewarding, caring and helpful as you transition with your new baby. They will care for you, for newborn and your family every step of the way.
Family is not located in the same state
Doulas fill the gap of missing family support. We once had a village of woman by our sides helping raise and tend to the mother and newborn. Times have changed. We no longer have the support close by. Families surrounding us have their own families, busy lives, and work, or may not live in town. Let your Doula be your village, and help make this an amazing experience with your new baby.
Wishing you a positive, uplifting, and an organic experience with your doula.

Preparing your newborn for bed around 7 or 8 pm, establishes a routine early on. Dim the lights, turn off the tv, have other kiddos have quiet time. Stimulation in the evening can be hard for your newborn to settle for the long stretches to come. Change diaper, put pajamas on, read a story, or just snuggle. This will create cues and good habits when its time for your baby to sleep through the night.
Your night nanny can help guide your nursery into a sleep haven for your little ones. White noise, light, curtains all play a huge part in your babies uninterrupted or interrupted sleep.

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.
