Overnight Newborn Care FAQs

Why should I choose to work with Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny?2022-06-02T10:29:23-04:00

This is an important question!  Because the newborn care industry is unregulated, anyone can set up a business with a fancy name, regardless of qualifications.  It’s important to know that not all agencies are created equal.

Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny maintains strict adherence to the guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Association of Sleep Medicine.  Our newborn caregivers have all successfully completed a rigorous training course created by several expert pediatricians and our founder Carole Kramer Arsenault, a Registered Nurse and one of Boston’s leading newborn experts.

Our business is built on a foundation of honesty, trust, and integrity. There is no greater gift than the peace of mind and reassurance that comes from knowing your child is in the very best of care.  That is why BBN&N has become Boston’s most sought after childcare resource.

What is the difference between a Newborn Care Expert (NCE), Newborn Care Specialist, or an Overnight Baby Nurse?2020-10-15T20:06:19-04:00

A newborn care expert, newborn care specialist, night nurse, night nanny, and baby nurse are different terms used to describe an infant care provider. It is important to note that these individuals are not licensed professionals and that skill levels will vary depending on the agency they represent. When it comes to caring for babies, competence and knowledge are very important.

What makes the team at Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny so special?2020-10-15T20:09:27-04:00

The Newborn Care Experts at Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny must successfully complete a rigorous training program, created by a team of medical professionals and licensed newborn experts, before they are approved to join our team. This ensures that your caregiver is up-to-date on the guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) about the latest sleep safety guidelines, soothing techniques, and baby care recommendations.

The two types of caregivers offer similar services. However, a Daytime Newborn Care Expert provides new parents guidance and directions about how to take care of their newborn. A Postpartum Doula offers support for Mom and also helps with household chores, running errands, and can even give Mom a massage.

I had the wonderful good fortune to find BBN&N. My daughter was new to the Boston area and needed both a baby nurse and a nanny. The firm’s level of professionalism and commitment to meet the needs of the mother are very impressive. Through the outstanding help and guidance of Elizabeth Grealy, my daughter was able to find both a very qualified baby nurse and an equally qualified nanny. I urge anyone in need of a nanny or baby nurse to go no further in your quest – you are in excellent hands with BBN&N.

We worked with Boston Baby Nurse for our 2 month old, who was extremely fussy and not a good sleeper. Bryn arranged for 2 newborn care experts, Doreen and Kimalyn, to provide us with much needed overnight support. My wife and I were immediately put at ease after speaking with the team at Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny.. Our newborn experts were both extremely patient, caring and professional. Moreover, Doreen helped to sleep coach our baby at 5 months, which was really helpful as we had no idea how to even begin this process. She continues to be a resource for childcare advice, which we really appreciate. We really enjoyed working with the entire team at Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny– they got us through some tough nights which was a lifesaver!

We all thought Breanne was terrific. It’s amazing how great everyone you send is, and it’s exciting to learn all the little tips and tricks they all seem to have. Breanne recommended doing a double swaddle, which none of us had ever even heard of! Seems like it works well for our daughter.

Yes, I am getting some sleep—certainly so much more than I would have been if we didn’t have your terrific team. This has been especially important since I have been battling my share of postpartum depression. I think the sleep has played a key role in helping me get through the fog the last couple of weeks, so I really appreciate all of the help Christine, Andrea, and Breanne provided. Thanks also to you for making this all so seamless!

Yes, tomorrow will be our last night w Teresa – and I’m very sad about that. Will definitely be in touch if we change our mind, but I think we have to cut the cord at some point :). Thank you for connecting us – Teresa is an amazing wealth of information, help, and support, and we’re really going to miss her. Finally, I just wanted to compliment you, Teresa, and BBN for providing such tremendous support during our first months home with our daughter. We were nervous to let strangers in at first, but you guys earned our trust immediately. You should feel very proud of the work you do – it has helped me and us tremendously. I also think you are an amazing asset to the company and have been super impressed with you speed and reliability. I will definitely recommend BBN far and wide (already started)… please let me know if there is anything I can do for you all – including serve as a reference for your services

It’s been an exhilarating week, between my return to work and our older daughter beginning preschool. Teresa actually saved the day on Tuesday! In my sleep-deprivation, I had set my alarm to 6PM instead of 6AM, and she (and little Emily!) are the only reasons that I made it in to teach my first classes on time! Teresa has been just so amazing with Emily and supportive with me. I’m so grateful to her and the whole BBN team for all your help during this exciting time in our lives.
Sophie, Boston, MA
Thank you so very much for the last minute arrangement. Antonina was a great help! Not only did we have a good nights sleep after almost a month but she was an incredible hands on help and support with my lactation difficulty. She also shared tips which I hope would help us dealing with a fussy newborn. Once again, thanks for the valuable service.

Thank you for checking in! We LOVE Elizabeth!! She feels like part of the family!! It’s been amazing to sleep through the night and to know that Grace is in great hands with Elizabeth.
