My goal is to help parents achieve one of their most important goals which is to build a safe, loving and nurturing environment for their babies.


To Whom It May Concern,
Working with BB was one of the best decisions that my wife Tilly and I ever made.  We are lucky beyond words to have met her.
We hired BB as a night nurse for our first boy in 2021, for 10 weeks, and for our second boy in 2023, for 9 weeks.  And we have had her back from time to time to handle nights and weekends.  We consider her to be part of our family and keep in touch — and, in fact, when we learned that we were having our second baby, we called BB to book her right away, even before telling anyone in our immediate family about the news!
As first time parents with our (now older) boy, BB taught us so very much, and was so loving and patient in doing so.  The lessons from those early days still reward us today, as we continue lean on the routines that she established to navigate the ever-increasing demands of our busy family lives.  As second time parents, we obviously had more experience, but BB continued to teach us, in terms of the way that we balance the demands and routines of both children, making certain that our older boy navigated the major change of the arrival of the baby.
BB doted on both of our boys with very special love and affection.  Every night that she walked in, the older boy perked up with a big smile, and the moment she said hello, the baby recognized her voice immediately, and started to settle down with anticipation of the bath, bottle, and bed routine to come.  I should add that there is nothing cuter than the happy and serene face on a baby when BB takes him for his nightly bath!
I also cannot heap enough praise on BB for her sleep training.  We trusted her routine, and both boys were great sleepers by the end.  We are told that our experience is rare in that regard.  The boys are still great sleepers to this day, and we credit BB’s work and advice for it.

BB was always very prompt and communicative, about her schedule and everything else.  She is fastidious in cleaning her spaces in and around the kitchen and bedrooms.  Always alert, in the evenings and the mornings, and always at work, from the moment that she arrives to the moment she leaves.  And an absolute pleasure to have around (my wife and I frequently enjoyed dinner with BB together, because we love her company so much).

All of this is to say, we highly recommend BB to anybody without hesitation.  We have recommended BB to friends, and they have been very pleased as well.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us, and you can speak to me or my wife.  (Contact information will be provided by BB).

B.R. was with me and my newborn son for 6 weeks and she is an absolutely tremendous baby nurse I will recommend highly without any reservation. B.R. was with us for 24 hours from the day we got back from the hospital and I can say with full certainly we would not have been able to do it without her. In fact, the first break she had after 9 straight days was over Christmas and it resulted in me begging her to come back a day early because we and most importantly my baby hadn’t slept well in two days. B.R. is incredibly skilled and I had full confidence in her from day 1. She had great suggestions for a schedule for the baby and started getting him into good habits very early on. She also always checked in on me and made sure I had eaten and rested enough. Having B.R. around the house full time was a joy. She was very easy going and built a great rapport with me and my parents even though they don’t speak English. Not only is she very skilled at her job (e.g., bathing the baby, feeding, etc.), what was much more important to me is that I could feel she genuinely cared for my son. She has so much affection for him and I could see it in his face that be thoroughly enjoyed her and would always be super happy when she held him. Fundamentally, I can’t underscore enough how crucial B. was to me in those few weeks. I am someone who enjoys sleeping and had big concerns on how well I will do at night. B. made it all so easy to the point of me barely feeling like my sleep was disrupted even though I was breastfeeding at night. My only regret is that I am moving out of the country otherwise I would have had B. stay with me for at least 3-4 months. I would encourage anyone considering B. to book her asap because she is too good to let go! I am hoping she still has some time for me if I have a second baby in which case I will call her literally immediately when I find out I am pregnant to make sure she is free! I am happy to speak to anyone who wants more details about B.!

“Dear Stephanie,
I’m writing to highly recommend BR to any potential client who may be interested in her night nurse services. BR worked with us for five nights a week from the night that we came home from the hospital for three and a half months. Although she mostly worked with us for 12-hour nights on weekdays, we valued her help so much that we asked her to stay a couple of 24-hour periods. If we could, we would keep her forever.
B’s expertise, support, and loving care for my baby Jackson made my early parenthood as magical as I could have hoped. She was there to help as soon as I came back from the hospital, when I was exhausted, in pain and overwhelmed. Her confident yet calming presence immediately put us at ease during an otherwise stressful life transition. She played a crucial role in my recovery and first weeks of having the baby, as I was able to get sleep and “shut off” my new mommy brain for deeper rest. I always knew he was in good hands with B. and that’s a priceless feeling for any new parent. As I was well rested, I actually could enjoy this special time with my son and maintained quality time with my husband. Our friends often asked us how we looked so energized and happy during the newborn stage and our response was always “B.”
On top of her support at night, we were also grateful to have B. to teach us how to take care of an infant as this was our first child. She taught us everything from establishing a comfortable pumping/feeding schedule to giving him his first bath. I can’t count the number of times Jackson would cry or fuss and B. would immediately figure out the problem, soothe him, and then teach us how to do so ourselves. Because of her deep knowledge and experience with newborns, she helped us all develop a good routine as a family that is paying off even after her time with us. For example, she effectively sleep trained him from day one, so now we have an easier time getting him to nap in a bassinet or self-soothe than other parents.
Finally, she’s just a great person and adds such a warm, wonderful presence to our home. It is not an easy decision to let someone new into your house and family at such a vulnerable time. However, B. had an honest, funny, and up-front approach while also being very respectful. We would have fun chatting with her in the early stages of the night and we would even say to each other privately, “man, we’re really going to miss having her around.” Her love for babies and especially our son was deeply moving, as they bonded beautifully. I’ll always remember the many evenings I would see her smiling and talking to my baby, who would look up at her with equally loving eyes. She will be forever part of our family.
We welcome any potential client who would like to discuss her qualifications or services further and recommend her without any hesitation.”

“I am writing on behalf of B.R. who is applying for a position as your baby nurse. Let me assure you that you would be hard-pressed to find a better candidate for your child.

In the few weeks B. worked with our baby girl, she truly become a part of our family. She began watching our daughter when she was just a few days old.  She worked with us every night for 4 weeks and we were comfortable with her instantly.

B. has mainly strength but her greatest is her knowledge and experience with newborn babies. She devoted her full attention to Sophia and understood what we needed from her as first time parents.   We learned so much from her in such a short time and were so grateful for the short time we had.  She taught us how to swaddle properly, soothe, bathe and teach good night time sleeping habits. Sophia loved Bernadette and was always so calm and happy with her.  I felt comfortable and safe knowing she was there to guide us through the initial turmoil of having a newborn.

I understand that the demands of a baby nurse are different from one household to the next, but I am confident that B. is more than ready for any challenge. She conducts herself professionally, respects confidentiality, and is able to connect with the babies and parents.

We are so saddened to have lost B. but know that she will make so many other children feel her love and warmth. She is irreplaceable! I sincerely hope that you are quick to give her a position, as her warmth, attentive care, and inviting personality will be sure to endear her to you and your children. Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email if you’d like any additional information; I’d be happy to share!”

I am writing to give my recommendation for B. as a baby nurse. B. is very experienced and wonderful with babies. I am so grateful for the care that she provided to my firstborn son when we came home from the hospital. Walker was premature and was able to come home from the NICU at just 34 weeks gestation so he was very tiny and challenging to feed. B. was always able to get him to take full bottles which allowed me to have peace of mind during a very stressful time – and kept him from a return to the NICU! More recently, I had B. return after the birth of my second son. She is such a wonderful resource and since this experience was different from the first, it was great to have the benefit of her years of experience.

I can’t recommend B. highly enough – anyone would be lucky to have her as their baby nurse.
