What is a Night Nanny?

Having a  baby usually means getting up at various intervals overnight to feed, soothe and calm your baby and help them get back to sleep. This can be an exhausting experience  leaving you  feeling sleep deprived and overwhelmed at times.  A Night Nanny is a nanny who pworks overnight. They  have l knowledge & experience of caring for babies from new born up to 1 year of age. They will arrive at your home in the evening and take care of all your baby’s needs throughout the night. Normally a Night Nanny would start at 9.00pm and finish at 7.00am. ( or 10pm - 8 am iif you prefer)  They  gently guide your baby to sleep through the night whilst you catch up on some much needed rest & sleep.

Night Nanny duties include:

  • Night feeds ( either giving your baby a bottle of formula or expressed milk or bringing baby to you to feed if you breastfeed)
  • Change nappies.
  • Burp & settle your baby to sleep.
  • Prepare and sterilise your baby’s bottles & breast pump equipment.
  • Dressing your baby in the morning.
  • Giving help and advice on normal sleep habits & getting your baby into a sleep routine
  • Cleaning a circumcision and / or umbilical cord
  • Giving you a full written report of all overnight feeds, changes and additional information when required. 

Night nannies rest between meeting the needs of your baby overnight so will need a bed or appropriate place to rest during the night.

A night nanny is not responsible for laundry or domestic household duties. Night Nannies are self employed and handle their own tax and national insurance contributions. 

Night nannies  hold a paediatric first aid certificate, have a clear DBS clearance and hold appropriate nanny insurance.
