Newborn & Night Nannies

Welcoming a new baby into your home is very exciting, however, it can also be very stressful. When I had my first child, I was so overwhelmed, especially since my insurance only covered 2 days in the hospital. I was not physically or mentally prepared to take on all the home responsibilities, care for my new baby and take care of myself. That is why hiring a newborn care specialist can help you enjoy the birth of your new baby and give you peace of mind that everything, including you is taken care of.

Loving Nannies offers two types of newborn specialists-newborn nannies & postpartum doulas. Newborn nannies (daytime and overnight hours) are nannies who care for the newborn so the parents can rest. Postpartum doulas help with baby care, household chores, breast feeding assistance, sibling care and more. All newborn nannies have been specially selected by the owner. Prices will depend on the individual nanny, their experience and qualifications. In general, if you are looking for a newborn nanny for twins or triplets or have special needs, then the price will more in the $25-$35/hr range.

Overnight Newborn Nanny Fees

For regular newborn nannies that work during the day, we charge our normal placement fees for part time or full time. Click here to see our rates page.

For temporary overnight newborn services,  we charge an upfront application fee of $250 and then 25% of the nanny’s salary, calculated & paid upfront when booking the nanny. As soon as the family books one of our newborn nannies for the dates needed, the family will be charged the placement fee. Most families use an overnight nanny for 1- 3 months (it can be just a few nights/week or 7 nights/week). Every family is different and we can accommodate any time frame.  While many companies charge a high hourly rate (usually $35-$45/hr) and then pay the nanny only a portion of that rate, our nannies charge anywhere from $18-$25/hr , you pay them directly and they get to keep all of their pay. You also have peace of mind knowing that you will be using the same newborn nanny for the amount of time you need. Once you book one of our newborn nannies, they are dedicated to starting when you need them and staying for the full amount of time that you’ve booked them.
