Hiring a Night Nurse or Baby Nurse for Newborn Care? Why Newborn Care Night Nurse? Parents left to their own devices are said to lose an average of six months of sleep in the first two years of their child’s life. That’s not good. Proper sleep isn’t a perk; it’s a priority as essential as nutrition and exercise. Failure to satisfy this need has consequences: impaired focus, confusion, fugue, and the sort of haziness that takes people “off their game” – and these are just precursors to more serious problems, like migraines, impaired vision, seizures, hallucinations and a host of latent conditions that thrive on inadequate rest.
Problems of this sort don’t just interrupt the quality of life; they also come at a cost.
I once had a client who was initially resistant to this advice, but came around, just in time. “I’m young,” she said. “I can always make money – but this is once-in-a-lifetime. I want to be present for every minute of it.”
Another was so thrilled upon my arrival that she said, “I’m going to bed; I’ll just leave a suitcase full of cash by the door.” Then, there was the mom who swore she’d’ve written a blank check had she known about this service. That’s the thing about a Night Nurse – it is, at its core, an almost indescribable relief.
