Let's Get This Baby In The Crib, Shall We?
Local night nurse agency Sweet Dreams Infant Care is making a name for itself by helping families break the co-sleeping habit—without crying it out. These pros prefer a soothing "check and console" method to help keep everyone sane. The agency sends night nurses who will coach you through the night. Besides helping your tot transition to the crib, nurses assist parents in feeding their babies, prepping and cleaning bottles, laundering baby clothing and linens, and tiding up the nursery. Sweet Dreams suggests reserving a nurse two or three months in advance, although last-minute requests are often accommodated. Overnights cost $550 per night and include follow-up phone consults.
