Hiring a confinement nanny is becoming more and more common nowadays. You might be considering to hire well-trained confinement nanny from an agency or not. If you are still uncertain, let’s see what a nanny can do if you are in any of the situations below.
If you have no experience in parenting
As a first time parent, you have zero experience in parenting. If you do not know many parents, you may lack the chance to directly consult them for advice or tips. A well-trained confinement nanny can give you advice and support during your confinement period. After giving birth, you will spend most of the time resting and you will need mental support from someone who can be physically present as well. You can consider joining a group or community but other parents would experience things differently than you. Their advice may be based on what they think is the best according to their circumstances but not yours. Therefore, it is best to have a well-trained confinement nanny who can give you their full attention and monitor your recovery and your newborn’s growth closely.
If there will be no other adult present in the house
This can be more challenging, especially during the day when both you and your newborn may need to be frequently tended to. Imagine when your baby needs to be bather, changed, and fed whereas you need ample rest and have proper confinement meals. If having an adult around, it would be more beneficial. An adult will be more knowledgeable and skilled in handling whatever you may encounter during your postnatal period. Hence, opting for a well-trained confinement nanny would do you more good than you may think.
If you have an older baby
If you are not a first-time parent but you have an older baby, how will the situation be? Having a sibling that is only 1 to 4 years old apart means that at some point, there used to be two babies in the house. It is quite common as many couples often get a second (or third) child when the previous one is still a baby. If this would be the situation in your house, you will need to make sure that there is a reliable person who can take care of your older baby. If your older baby hasn’t weaned, you may need to tandem nurse which means you need to breastfeed more than one child at the same time. You may face certain issues so you would need guidance and help with the breastfeeding. In such a situation, a well-trained confinement nanny will help.
If you have no one to cook for you
After giving birth, you will need to eat well and obtain enough nutrients to recover well. You should exclude yourself from the cooking task as you will need to get enough rest. If you are not a fan of delivery services, you may want to think of how you are going to have your daily meals in confinement. Even if you have a maid, they may not be able to prepare proper confinement meals for you. Hence, a well-trained confinement nanny is an expert in such matters.
If you desperately need to get ample rest
All mums need to get enough rest after giving birth. But perhaps for some reasons, you might face some difficulties in getting sufficient rest either due to external or internal factors. You might be a workaholic who works from home. You may feel the need to get back to work as soon as you could sit up in bed. However, you need to refrain from doing this and give yourself time to rest. Therefore, a confinement nanny works. Ask your confinement nanny to ‘ensure’ you will get enough rest!
From the reasons above, we can tell that there is more beneficial if you hire a well-trained confinement nanny. PEM Confinement Nanny Agency provides expert and experienced confinement nanny and we are the confinement nanny Singapore recommendation by many mums!
