is help for NIGHT OWL BABIES!
The main thing
we find ourselves doing at Tranquil Seasons is helping
families get through the night with their newborn.
can a postpartum doula help at night?
1. Simply by being there.
We bring mom snacks while nursing in the middle of the night,
and then when she has finished, she toddles back to bed and
easily falls back to sleep, while we burp, change and soothe
her newborns back to sleep. It's nice to know you're not alone
when you're tired and overwhelmed, because the middle of the
night can be the hardest time emotionally, to get through.
We can give advice on healthy sleep habits.
When your doula is there, with fresh eyes, and lots of experience,
she will get to know your family's dynamics, the personality
of the babies, and also your desires for night-time feedings.
With all that information, we can work with you to develop a
customized, loving plan. We will help you take your parenting
style through the transitions from child-led into a gentle,
flexible, yet structured night time routine.
We are more than baby nurses/nannies.
We will not just hold the baby all night if fussy- which makes
it hard on you when we're gone. We will help teach your babies
ways to self-soothe, and we will troubleshoot and solve the
obstacles that keep your babies from learning that important
Your home will smile at you in the morning.
And you will smile back... because when you emerge from your
den of slumber, the common areas will be tidied, your dishes
will be done, the piles of laundry will be clean and folded,
one-handed snacks will be prepared in the fridge, and your hot
breakfast will be waiting for you. Your home will be quiet,
with babies soundly sleeping and you'll be able to take a deep
breath, spend some grown-up time with your partner and feel
an overnight doula is the perfect way
to start the day off right as a new parent.
THAT can make all the difference!
