Newborn Care Specialist
Newborn Care Specialists (NCS) are highly experienced individuals who have chosen to specialize in newborn and infant care. Many have undergone specialized training and have advanced knowledge in a wide variety of subject areas including lactation support and sleep training. Whereas nannies work and grow with a family for many years, an NCS is an expert who will work with you for the first weeks and months of your newborn’s life. 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. Our clients routinely tell us that hiring an NCS was the best decision they made providing them sanity, support, and much-needed sleep.
Who's It For?
Families that benefit most from hiring an NCS are first-time parents expecting singletons and/or multiples, families with heavy or atypical work schedules, moms recovering from a c-section, adoptive, surrogate, and same-sex parents, those without family support nearby, or parents who simply need a good night’s rest!

Schedule & Rates
Newborn Care Specialists typically work either 10-12-hour overnight shifts or are hired to provide 24-hour care 5-7 days/wk. Terms vary in length between 2 weeks and 6 months; on average families hire an NCS for approximately 16 weeks (or until their baby is successfully sleeping through the night). Depending on experience, qualifications, and number of children (singleton or multiples) rates for Newborn Care Specialists can range from $30-$60/hr.
Happy Baby recommends booking your Newborn Care Specialist 2-3 months prior to your due date (or as early as possible) as highly experienced candidates book up quickly!
