Gifted Asked: What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
You Responded: “Sleep! My husband booked me a night nurse so we could both get few nights sleep without waking up with our son. This is the greatest gift someone could give to an expectant/new mother. I slept soundly knowing he was being watched by competent hands and I was getting the rest I needed so that I can be the best mom possible during the day.” – Elisa, Toronto
My new mom friend basically screamed this gift idea at me. She was giddy after getting her first full night’s sleep in 4 months. A night nurse or sleep doula can coach new parents through how to develop sleeping routines for their baby as well as help relieve feeding, changing and cuddling duties throughout the night. Two that were recommended to Gifted in the Toronto area are Twinkeys and the Sleep Doula.
Night nurse, approx $150-250/night.
