A Baby Nurse (also known as a Newborn Care Specialist) is a newborn care expert who is educated, trained and highly skilled in all areas of infant care and parental education. They extend their service during the post-delivery stage before starting the baby’s regular eat, sleep and wake schedule.
They work with families at home for a couple of weeks or months, depending on the family’s preferences; assisting the parents to be familiar with numerous tasks in taking care of their newborn and guide them in dealing with challenges with their baby.
Baby Nurses are not considered medical experts or even registered nurses. They are also not responsible for tasks that are unrelated to newborn care (such as housekeeping). Their goal is to ensure that the babies are well taken care of and that parents are properly educated in caring for their newborn.
