Their main goal is to support you as parents and help you navigate the exciting yet challenging journey of caring for your little one. They offer guidance, education, and a comforting presence to ensure that you and your baby feel confident and well-cared for during this special time.

Typically NCS’ are hired during the evening, anytime between 6-10pm, and stay throughout the night, working shifts that range from 8-12 hours. They will focus on establishing healthy sleep habits for your baby and attending to their needs, including feeding, changing, burping, and soothing them back to sleep.

Most NCS’ require at least an 8-hour overnight shift. The rates for NCS’ services range from $30 to $50 per hour depending on the specialist you choose and your location.
