What does a Newborn Specialist do?

Newborn Care Specialists will generally work night shifts managing the baby’s care while the parents sleep restfully. When the baby wakes up, the Newborn Care Specialist feeds by a bottle or brings the baby to the mom for nursing. After feeding, the baby is burped and changed and put back to bed.

During the daytime, a Newborn Care Specialist will provide similar care and also strive to create a nurturing and stimulating environment for the baby during waking hours. Both day and night Newborn Care Specialists document the baby’s patterns and keep a log of sleeping, feeding and changing times to assist in transitioning the baby to a regular schedule.

Newborn Care Specialists are generally not responsible for household duties unrelated to the new baby or the care of other children in the household.


Salary is usually based on two factors: the amount of experience the candidate brings to the position and the number of infants involved (singleton, twins, triplets, quads or more.)

The average salary range for a Newborn Care Specialist is $18-$30 range based on the number of children is below:
  • Singletons $18-$25/hr
  • Twins $22 -$35/hr
  • Triplets $23-$40/hr
  • Quads $25-$45/hr
  • The daily rate is $350 and up a day.
