Sleep? Did someone say sleep?!?! Just kidding! We know that sleep comes in shorter intervals than you may be accustomed to. But worry not, new friend! When everyone else has gone home we are here to help you every baby step of the way.
No matter what feeding method you choose our doulas are here to help maximize the amount of sleep you get while meeting the demands of night time parenting.
We are more than a night nanny. We are specially trained to:
- Help you understand and learn normal newborn sleep patterns
- Establish day and night rhythm and healthy sleep habits
- Understand sleep cues
- Establish an age appropriate bed time routine
- Sort through sleep theories and find the one that works best for your family.
- Achieve both optimal sleep and your breastfeeding goals
- Support your postpartum recovery
- Set up a safe nursery that is conducive to sleep
- Ease those 2am concerns by answering any questions you might have
It doesn’t stop there though. Wake up with a head start on the day. While your little one was sleeping we folded the laundry, picked up the living room, washed all the bottles and pump parts, restocked the diaper changing station and breakfast awaits you.
Overnight Doula Customized Packages
Omaha Birth & Babies families can have our support during the day or overnight. Our packages offer flexibility as we don’t anticipate our clients predicting what their future needs may be.
Our doulas support families that only need one 4 hour day shift, one 9 hour overnight shift or families that need 24 hours of support for months and anywhere in between.
No two families are alike and we want to make sure you get the customized expert care & support your family needs and deserve.
Whether you have a newborn and are ready to start healthy sleep habits from the beginning OR even with the best of intentions fell into routines and habits that are not allowing for the best sleep for your family, our sleep consultant is here to gently work with you.
Upon payment, you’ll receive a welcome email from us. This will include an in-take form with questions about your baby’s age, temperament, routines, and current sleeping environment. Once our sleep consultant receives your responses, she will create a customized sleep plan for you and email it to you the night before your call so you have time to review it.
Depending on the package you choose, she’ll provide unlimited support via text messages and email for the next two weeks – including 2 phone calls per week OR unlimited email support for two weeks. You’ll also receive documents that will help nap transitions and bumps in the road. Families with newborns will receive a Happiest Baby on the Block Digital Parent Kit.
*Please note that we only support babies within age appropriate expectations. During the newborn stage through four months old we are here to help establish a solid foundation for healthy sleep and provide proven techniques to help your baby calm and stay settled to optimize sleep.
