About Baby Nurses America
Baby Nurses America is the National Baby Nurse Placement Division of Absolute Best Care Nanny Agency, rated “Best of the Best” in New York City and the Tri-State area since 2002. Over 10,000 families have chosen to trust Absolute Best Care with their childcare needs from newborns, toddlers and school age children to housekeeping and house management.
All Baby Nurse Agencies are not created equal. Most agencies simply reserve the next available care specialist based on the due-date. What distinguishes Baby Nurses America from other placement agencies is that we recruit the highest quality, hand-picked newborn care specialists based on your specific goals and needs.
Each family is unique with varying circumstances and situations. Families reserve Baby Nurses for many reasons and have different objectives in mind. Based on our communication with you and our required questionnaire, we select the perfect match for your family by very carefully considering your specific goals and needs and what you would like to accomplish by having a Baby Nurse in your home.
Our Baby Nurses guide new and experienced parents to fully understand everything from implementing healthy nursing and sleeping patterns to swaddling, bathing and much more. All the nuances of parenting from the moment you arrive home until your baby sleeps through the night are covered. Several months prior to your due-date your Baby Nurse is secured so you are worry-free and set with the perfectly matched caregiver who is excited to join your family. If needed we have back-up Baby Nurse fill-in and emergency care, so you will never be without coverage. Additionally, we offer specialist Baby Nurses for premature births, twins and multiple births, surrogate, adoptions, colic, gassy babies and for other special circumstances.
Whether you are a new parent or experienced parent, our Placement Specialist and Baby Nurses will cater to your exact family’s needs and requirements. Most Baby Nurses reside in the New York/Metropolitan area and travel anywhere throughout the United State and abroad. There’s 24 hour care available nationwide and night nurses and day-time coverage available in the Tri-State Area. Please note: A Baby Nurse is not a Registered Nurse or LPN. These caregivers are Newborn Care Specialists who are all legal to work in the United States and are all Infant CPR Certified.

Kind Words from Happy Clients
Reviews that prove how much we truly care.
“We received prompt introductions to baby nurses and out of the three we met, we found the perfect nurse. The only thing we could complain about was when we wanted to extend her stay by a month, being as amazing as she is, she had already been booked by another family. We couldn’t be happier with the nurse Baby Nurses America helped us find!”
“I wasn’t sure what to expect when I contacted them @ 6am while in the hospital with our baby, but immediately heard from Monique. She listened to our concerns and our needs, which was no short order because we needed a nurse the next day. She found someone and worked well into the night to make sure we had what we needed. Marlene was incredible, just as Monique said she would be. I can’t recommend BNA enough.”
“I appreciated the level of professionalism and the unobtrusiveness that BNA offered in their approach. They were incredibly helpful in guiding me towards the best decision we could have made. I would highly recommend BNA services and of course, Pat- the baby whisperer to anyone seeking assistance and relief from the struggles of those first few months.”
“BNA is by far the best service we have ever used. When I gave birth to our twins I was so overwhelmed. The baby nurse they sent us, not only calmed me down and taught me so much, but has become part of our family. We’ve already requested her for our next baby due in May. Every care giver they have sent us over the past 15 months has been fabulous, warm, caring and loving. The staff is fantastic and always accommodates us no matter what, even last minute. I cannot gush enough or recommend them enough. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for a baby nurse.”
“Monique found us a baby nurse who was a force of calm from the minute she arrived in our home! As first-time parents we were completely unprepared for what our new life would be like, and our nurse taught us about the importance of schedules, organization, and preparation. She was patient and easy to talk to, and felt like part of the family. My husband and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I am grateful to Monique and BNA for making the process as seamless as possible! I would definitely recommend BNA to other parents.”
If you really do not want to worry, don’t waste your time calling anyone else! Monique is truly the absolute best. We lost our original baby nurse we hired on our own last minute, and when I was exhausted and home with a 3 day old baby, I finally found out about Baby Nurses America at Absolute Best Care. I had contacted other agencies, but no one could help at the last minute. Monique told me she would have someone for me that night, and something in her voice told me she would. Not only did she have someone, our baby nurse Deanne has become part of the family in such a short time. We extended her twice and I feel so comfortable when she is here. I was able to sleep through the night and recover from pre-eclampsia. We have also had a couple of fill ins on nights she was off, and they were equally warm and wonderful. Monique truly cares about her clients, she is full of energy, is available when you need her, and listens and understands what your needs are. I am so thankful I found BNA – her team of baby nurses are true professionals who all love what they do and it shows.

BABY NURSE Q & A
Frequently Asked Questions
A Baby Nurse is a non-medical newborn care specialist that is highly experienced in infant care. Baby Nurses work in private homes and care for newborns from when baby comes home to up to 3-6 months of age. There are 24-hour care baby nurses who can assist both new and experienced parents in caring for the newborn baby(s) and establishing eating and sleeping patterns. A baby nurse can also work a night-time or day-time shift if she is in proximity to your home. We have baby nurses who are located in the tri-state area of NY, NJ and CT who can do 24-hour-care, night-time or day-time care. If you live outside of the this area, our baby nurses can do 24-hour care and travel to you.
Our Baby Nurses fill out an extensive application, all are met in person and all references are checked and verified. They must all have extensive baby nursing experience to be considered. Many of them have taken a Baby Nurse training course and all must be Infant CPR certified, have proper vaccines, flu shot (if in season) and Tdap. A full criminal check is completed prior to placement.
No, Baby Nurses are not RN’s or LPN’s. They are non-medical newborn care specialists who focus on the baby and the parents.
The sooner you know you want a baby nurse; the better. We recommend at least 2 months for single babies and 4-5 months for twins or triplets or if you require longer than 2-month stay. Please remember it’s never too early to reserve a Baby Nurse because they do offer pre-delivery phone support and the earlier you reserve gives you more options.
The typical stay for our clients varies per family. Most families want a Baby Nurse until the baby sleeps through the night which is about 90 days for a single baby and 120 days for multiples; (many times longer). We do have clients who keep baby nurses for the first year of life as well. If you can afford it; it’s well worth the investment. We do have a 14 day minimum for all Baby Nurse Placements.
It is important to us that you let us know approximately how long you would like to reserve the Baby Nurse for so we can reserve someone for you with matching schedules. If you are really uncertain we can coach you and help you come up with a good time frame that works for your needs.
Please call us to discuss.
