The typical hours for Charlotte Newborn Care are 10:00 P.M. – 6:00 A.M. Our nighttime routine includes feeding and burping the baby, diaper changes, swaddling, soothing and rocking, preparing and washing bottles, light cleaning in the nursery, folding newborn laundry, and supporting getting your baby on a night time schedule. If you are breast feeding, we will bring the baby to you when it’s time to nurse and come get the baby when finished. If you have also chosen to pump, we can feed the baby the breast milk in a bottle if you wish. Every night, a log sheet will be completed so you can see how your baby did throughout the night.
We recommend contacting Charlotte Newborn Care later in your 3rd trimester, so we have enough time to assess your needs and get staff in place as soon as you get home from the hospital. Please keep in mind you may not have the same person covering all of your nights. We will try our best to keep it consistent, but in most cases, you will have a couple different staff members working with your family.
No medical care is provided with Charlotte Newborn Care. If you have questions or concerns related to your newborn’s health or condition, please contact your pediatrician.
