When parents first hold their babies, they feel a fierce love and sense of protection for the child. They want to do anything and everything they can to care for the baby as best as possible and find others that love and care for the baby as much as they do. And when the time comes, one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent is who will help care for your infant. You may have heard of Newborn Care Specialists, also known as infant care specialists! 

What are Newborn Care Specialists?

These individuals are trained specifically for newborn care, and work with babies from birth through several months, depending on the needs of the family and baby (or babies!). This person has a variety of skill and experience with caring for newborns and has expertise in not just newborn care, but parent education and support. The services they provide include:
  • Assistance and education for parents after the baby is born and settling in at home
  • Sleep training
  • Changing diapers and bathing
  • Help with breast feeding and/or formula and bottle feeding
  • Creating a stimulating environment for a baby when awake
  • Documenting sleep, eating, and changing patterns for the baby
  • Helping the baby transition to a routine/schedule
  • Newborn Care Specialists often work at the home during the night shift and take care of the baby while the parents sleep and assist with feeding as necessary.
  • If the baby is breast fed, the specialist will bring the baby to the mother for feeding then get the baby back to bed.
  • During the day, the specialist provides similar care. (They are not usually responsible for other household duties and are not usually in charge of watching other children in the household)
  • This position is a temporary one, with the average specialist working at least 2 weeks and sometimes up to four months.
