Night Nannies, Newborn Care Specialists or Baby Nurses - What is the difference?
Updated: Feb 23, 2021
I was having a conversation with a client this week and the comment came up that they had a difficult time finding our services online. It turns out they were searching for baby nurses. I thought I would take some time and discuss the difference between baby nurses, newborn care specialists and night nannies.
The term Baby Nurse is often used in different parts of the country for describing a night nanny or newborn care specialist. This is obviously different from a licenses RN (Registered Nurse) or LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) working as a Baby Nurse and providing infant care. For us, they are all extremely caring and knowledgeable women that can aid you and your family with your overnight infant care needs. However, here at Night Nannies for Newborns we prefer to use the term night nannies or newborn care specialists instead of baby nurses.
We have extensive experience working with infants that have special needs such as: being on oxygen, using apnea monitors, have reflux, colic or other medical issues. So we are equipped to care for your infant once they are able to go home. Your specific needs and concerns will determine whether or not you need a licensed nurse.
