A night nanny provides specialist and dedicated support for families with newborns and/or young children, throughout the night, from evening until the following morning. Whatever help you need, your nanny is there to support you so that your experience with your newborn is a positive one that also enables you to get some rest and recuperation.
Night times are generally the most trying times for new parents, especially if your baby is struggling to sleep, has colic, or feeding problems. Our night nannies are highly experienced in post-natal care and can provide advice and help how and where you need it. You can arrange a night nanny in advance, which we’d recommend, however, we can arrange at short notice. You can hire on a short-term basis, or longer-term if needed.
Happy Nest provides made-to-measure packages to provide new parents with the very best post-natal support, guaranteeing continued care and advice throughout every minute the nanny is with you. Our nannies are available to visit for short periods, day or over-night care in person or we can arrange a chat on the telephone with one of our most expert consultants about any apprehensions you may have. We will work closely with you to ensure you feel supported and safe through those early days and weeks and for as long as you and baby require the help of Happy Nest Post-natal Care.
Why employ a night nanny?
A night nanny can provide invaluable support for families where mum needs to recover from the birth or has had a caesarean section; where mum and/or dad work and need to get some rest; or parents that work shifts (e.g. doctors or nurses) and need cover when they are at work or need rest.
A night nanny can also help you establish routines and sleeping patterns, help with feeding (breast & bottle), assist with health issues such as colic, and are generally a pillar of support that you know you can rely on. We also place night nannies with families where help from family isn’t available for whatever reason.
A night nanny can be arranged in advance e.g. if you have a planned caesarian and need to know you have support at home when you leave hospital, and can help you for as little or as long as you need. Families that we’ve placed a night nanny with have said that the main benefit was to be able to rest and recuperate knowing that a professional that they trust has everything looked after.
