The First 24
Within 24 hours of arriving home, I will be there to help begin the transition of your new life and family.
Whether bottle, breast, or a little of both, I will encourage you and your decision. Together we will build your confidence in giving your baby nutrition and establishing expectations for you both.
Establishing A Routine
Newborns typically laugh in the face of routine, and simple daily tasks can have an amazing impact on you and your support person as you adjust to your new life. I'll help create a sense of order among the new "normal."
The transition period for older siblings can be difficult. I can help ease your "first baby" into the role of big sister/brother by playing, interacting, and demonstrating how a family of 4+ feels.
Maintaining a household should be a mother's last worry when bonding with her newborn. I'm there to help with high priority chores such as laundry, feeding pets, accompanying Mom on errands, and dishes.
Each family and experience is different. My role in your life will include more than what is listed here. For more information and price/package options, please contact me.
