Get a good night’s sleep! Your Night Nanny will not only care for your baby, but will also guide your child to sleep through the night; building good sleep habits to last a lifetime.
Cocoon have taken great care researching the best night nannies, maternity nurses and sleep trainers available. Our highly trained nannies are either paediatric nurses, maternity nurses or qualified nannies with extensive newborn experience.
A Cocoon Night Nanny is qualified to:
- Provide advice and strategies coping with post-natal depression
- Prepare and sterilise bottles
- Change nappies
- Do the night feeds
- Give advice on breast feeding
- Settle the baby
- Give help and advice on establishing the baby into a sleep routine
- Stay longer in the mornings
- Dress and prepare the baby in the morning
A Cocoon night nanny’s normal working hours are 9pm to 7am or 10pm to 8am. Our night nannies are flexible so if longer or different hours are required then this can be pre-arranged directly with your nanny. Please note that a Cocoon night nanny does not provide domestic cleaning or laundry unless pre-arranged with Cocoon. Night nannies should be allowed to rest in between the babies needs.
Cocoon advise parents to book a night nanny prior to giving birth particularly as you may wish to have the same nanny for the entire period.
Do you think you may suffer from Postnatal Depression?
This may be your first or subsequent pregnancy and at this very exciting time you want to be able to experience the wonderful joy without the worries and stresses of wondering how you are going to cope after giving birth.
