A Newborn Care Specialist (also commonly referred to as a baby nurse, night nurse, or night nanny) fills a very special role in your home. Her job is to provide expert newborn care during the precious first weeks or months of your baby’s life. Most Newborn Care Specialists work at night; some even work 24 hour shifts to give new parents the rest they need!
