Overnight Doula, Night Nanny or Baby Nurse?
The newborn days are filled with so many wonderful experiences! We at Memphis Family Doulas are happy to announce Overnight Doula. Just like our regular postpartum services, our Overnight Doula can care for your baby or babies from birth to his or her first birthday. And just like our postpartum services, you can have the Overnight Doula services for a night, or for a few months. Let us know how we can help!
Our focus on your family is helping you avoid exhaustion, and getting your baby or babies to sleep. We care for your baby during the night because that is the natural time for you to sleep. Without enough sleep, you become exhausted and run down. How does 10 hours of sleep sound? It sounds good! Clients tell us that they feel very cared for during the Overnight Doula session.
What about your baby or babies? We care for singles, twins and triplets. Your baby is a little confused after the big day, and isn't sure if he or she should be sleeping at night or during the day time. We only help sleep train if you are interested in that service. But we know that babies benefit from a full night sleep.
Sleep isn't the only important thing. We monitor your baby's feeding habits with a journal, and make sure your baby is feed regularly. Whether you are breastfeeding or formula feeding, it's up to you . This is your baby. You know what is best. Our belief is that fed is best. While you are sleeping, your doula can bring your baby to you to nurse, or we can feed your baby a bottle of pumped breastmilk or formula. It's your choice. We do whatever helps you care for your baby the best way.
Your baby will need frequent diaper changes, because of frequent feedings. We will keep track of how many diapers your baby made, and if it is wet or a bowel movement. You can look back at our journey from over night to see how much your baby has been fed, so you will know how much to feed your baby for the rest of the day.
Did you know we wash the mother and babies laundray? We do! And we load the dishwasher, clean the bottles and do light pick up in the kitchen. We want you to wake up with a smile on your face. Does a Night Nanny do that? No!
And coffee and breakfast too, if your baby is sleeping at the end of our shift! Yes, mornings are going to be fantastic at your house!
Call us for an Overnight Doula consultation, and we will go over the details with you! Thank you for letting us serve your family!
