Newborn Care Specialists in Minnesota
Infant Specialists Near Me
Our infant specialists are a minimum of 18 years old and have at least 2 years of professional newborn experience. We thoroughly screen each nanny to make sure they have the skill set to safely care for your newborn.
We rigorously vette our nannies to ensure your child's safety. We don't want your little one's mouth burned from a microwaved Dr. Brown's bottle. Heaven forbid a tiny cherub gets caught up in a crib bumper.
We ask potential candidates a slew of questions. As your child grows and the relationship with your nanny is maintained we want to know that she can advance his or her development past infancy and into toddlerhood.
Types of Questions We Ask:
How do you know when a baby can safely sleep on his or her stomach, if ever?
By what age should an infant be rolling over?
How long can breast milk stay out of the fridge?
What is the worst situation you have encountered working with children? You would be surprised by the number of candidates who do not take this opportunity to show off their emergency-preparedness.
How do you soothe a colicky baby?
Which sleep training method do you prefer and why?
How do you age-appropriate developmental activities?
Plus, as the employer, you are in control. It is important that the newborn care specialist we recruit for you listens and is attentive to your child-rearing preferences.
If you prefer to sleep train your child using the pick-up-put-down method rather than the cry-it-out method, our nanny placement agency recruits a nanny who will support you.
We also ask them to keep a nanny log about your infant's feedings, sleep schedule, and urination habits. We want them to maintain clear communication.
We make every effort to recruit college-educated nannies with a minimum of 2 years of professional childcare experience (required).
We are here to help!
Recruitment Cost: $2,350.00
