They have advanced knowledge in lactation support, sleep training, caring for multiples, resolving common issues & ailments that newborns may experience such as reflux/GERD, postpartum recovery, and preemie care. An NCS goal is to establish a daytime routine for your baby by helping her learn to sleep through the night (7pm-7am) by approximately 12 weeks old. A Newborn Care Specialist provides you with information on the most effective techniques to care for your baby that follow the latest recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and other professional health organizations.

As families transition into full-time nanny-care, an NCS can provide hands-on training for your new nanny so that consistency in care can continue after her term ends. Newborn Care Specialists are hired to provide 24-hour care 5-7 days/wk or only 12-hours overnight, usually between 2 weeks and 6 months.
