Newborn Care Specialist


What is a Newborn Care Specialist?

A Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) is a highly specialized and trained childcare provider who focuses on the care and well-being of a newborn baby during the first 12-16 weeks of life. They are familiar with common issues such as reflux and have proven solutions and resources to help.

An NCS often has extensive knowledge in caring for multiples and premature infants and is well-versed in establishing good eating and sleeping habits to set the optimal stage for sleep conditioning, with the goal of getting the newborn to sleep through the night and take age-appropriate naps as soon as it is healthy and possible for that individual newborn.

An NCS is also well versed in supporting family values and understands the importance of a child having healthy, educated, and empowered parents. An NCS will understand the value of and will support a breastfeeding parent and will also understand and support without judgment a parent who chooses to formula feed.

As your NCS I will:

  • Assist with informative education for parents after the baby is born and settling in at home
  • Help with sleep training
  • Change diapers and bathe the newborn
  • Help with breastfeeding and/or formula and bottle feeding
  • Create a stimulating environment for the baby when awake
  • Document sleeping, eating, and changing patterns for the baby
  • Help the baby transition to a routine/schedule
  • I will do anything and everything I can to care for your baby as if it were my own.
