Postpartum Bliss Overnight Care: Benefits, Duties and Support
Bringing home a newborn is so exciting, but it can also be very intimidating and stressful. Overnight newborn support can relieve the stress, provide calm assistance and allow parents to recharge themselves with rest and a good night’s sleep!
How can Postpartum Bliss help you at night?
If mom is nursing, we will:
• help with breastfeeding especially in the early days of arriving home
• bring the baby to mom for feedings
• change and soothe the baby back to sleep after feedings are completed
• bring water and snacks to mom as needed
• If and when the mom is pumping her milk, we will care for the baby exclusively, retrieving any pumped milk from outside the mother’s room that she has pumped during the night and properly storing it.
• wash pumping equipment
If mom is bottle feeding, we will:
• exclusively care for the baby for the duration of the night.
• feed, change, and settle the baby throughout the night
• keep a detailed baby log at night that will be emailed to parents after every shift
• give suggestions for building healthy sleep foundations
• clean the bottles and make new formula for the next day
What are the benefits of having Postpartum Bliss Overnight care?
• Parents can have their questions from the day answered about their baby by an experienced caretaker
• You get the much needed sleep you need, while knowing your baby is in loving professional hands
• Sleep helps promote healing, giving the mother a more restful postpartum
• Support with nursing relieves anxiety and gets mom back to sleep quicker
• We offer short-term, long-term, and 24 hr support packages giving you as many or as few nights as needed
Does the doula/newborn care specialist sleep at night?
• Yes, Night doula/ncs may nap when the baby sleeps. They will sleep on a couch or bed next to baby’s bassinet and be ready to care for baby as soon as baby wakes up.
What is the difference between an Overnight support and Daytime support?
• Overnight care focuses on care for the baby only, and for mom if she is breastfeeding/pumping.
• Daytime support includes baby care but also light housework, cooking, shopping, laundry and support for the family as a whole. Daytime Postpartum care’s main focus is moms recovery.
• Daytime support provides sibling care
• Daytime support is a minimum of 4 hrs/day and Overnight support is a minimum of 8 hrs/night (10 hr shifts are prefered)
