What do Newborn Specialist Nannies do?

Newborns are more than cute, sweet, innocent cherubs—they’re a lot of work and a source of anxiety for new parents. Just when a parent thinks he won’t be able to handle the task, in swoops the Newborn Specialist Nanny to take the helm for the first few weeks the baby is home.

As a Newborn Specialist Nanny, you might work with a single parent who needs an extra set of hands so she can juggle her new responsibilities. Or, you might help a client who works long hours and needs someone to run the night shift while she sleeps.
