Daytime Newborn Care
Daytime newborn care services allow you to have an extra set of skilled-hands to care for your child while you carve out a little time to focus on something other than baby.
You will also have the opportunity to learn about infant care through a skilled baby provider. Your provider is responsible for feeding, burping, changing diapers, and getting your baby down for naps. In addition, your provider will help with baby’s laundry and wash bottles.
