How much does it cost to employ a daytime confinement nanny in Singapore?

The cost of employing a daytime nanny matches that of a full-time nanny, owing to the expenses related to transportation and accommodation for the nanny.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the working hours of the daytime confinement nanny flexible?

Our daytime confinement nannies typically follow a standard schedule, working from 9 am to 5 pm to provide care and support during the day. This includes a wide range of services aimed at helping new mothers recover from childbirth and ensuring the well-being of their newborns. Despite this standard timeframe, we understand that every family's needs are unique. Therefore, we are more than willing to discuss and accommodate different arrangements that better suit your specific situation.

Whether you need extended hours, a shift in the working hours, or any other modification to the standard schedule, our goal is to provide flexible and personalised care to meet your needs and ensure the best possible experience during your confinement period.

Who should hire a daytime confinement nanny in Singapore?

A daytime confinement nanny is a suitable option for families who either don't have an extra room or feel uncomfortable with a stranger staying overnight. On the other hand, hiring a full-time confinement nanny in Singapore would require you to arrange proper lodging for them during the night, as they would be staying under the same roof for 24/7 over the next 28 days. Opting for a daytime confinement nanny eliminates this hassle while still providing the same level of care from our experienced nanny.

What is the drawback of hiring a daytime confinement nanny?

Caring for your baby at night can be one of the most challenging aspects of newborn parenting. The disruption of waking up every two to three hours to feed a hungry baby is unfamiliar territory for many new parents, making it difficult to function during the day. If you opt for a daytime confinement nanny, they will not provide support during nighttime feedings, resulting in less rest for the mother.

We strongly recommend having nighttime support, especially for first-time parents, as it offers the following benefits::

  1. Sufficient rest to aid in recovery and recuperation.
  2. More time to adjust and adapt to parenthood.
Where do I go to hire a confinement nanny in Singapore?

There are several avenues you can explore to hire a confinement nanny in Singapore. One way is through personal recommendations from friends, family, or colleagues who have previously used such services.

Alternatively, consider engaging a confinement nanny agency in Singapore that specialise in connecting families with qualified and experienced nannies just like NewBubs Confinement Agency. We’re an MOM-licensed confinement nanny agency (MOM License Number: 23C1524) in Singapore that carefully vet our candidates, ensuring they meet high standards of professionalism and expertise. By working with a reputable agency like us, you can be confident that you'll be matched with a suitable nanny who meets your specific needs and preferences so you can rest and recuperate properly.

When should I hire a daytime confinement nanny?

As a general rule of thumb, it is advisable to hire a daytime confinement nanny as early as possible. It is common to see more experienced and highly sought-after confinement ladies getting reserved well in advance, with some clients even securing their services during the first trimester. By making the arrangement early, you can have peace of mind, knowing that you have one less thing to worry about.

We understand that pregnancy can sometimes be uncertain, and in such cases, we offer a 100% refund of the deposit in the event of any pregnancy complications certified by a doctor. This policy ensures flexibility and support during unforeseen circumstances.

Must I really hire a daytime confinement nanny in Singapore?

While it is not mandatory to hire a confinement nanny, many new parents in Singapore choose to do so because they believe it can greatly benefit their physical and emotional recovery after childbirth, as well as help them adjust to the demands of caring for a newborn.

Hiring a confinement lady can provide new parents with much-needed support during this period of adjustment, and can also alleviate some of the stress associated with caring for a newborn, such as sleep deprivation and anxiety.

This is especially so for first-time parents where everything is new to them. Not knowing what to do when the baby is crying or in an emergency situation can be extremely stressful.

How much does it cost to hire a daytime confinement nanny in Singapore?

The cost of hiring a daytime confinement nanny is the same as hiring a full-time confinement nanny. You might be wondering why the cost remains the same despite the daytime nanny working fewer hours.

The reasons behind this are straightforward:
1. Lodging - Since our confinement ladies are non-Singaporean and don't have a permanent residence here, we need to rent a place for them to rest overnight. This incurs additional costs.

2. Transportation - Daily transportation is arranged for the nanny to commute to and from their workplace.

What kind of support can I expect from a daytime confinement nanny?

A daytime confinement nanny is specially trained to provide a comprehensive range of support services tailored to the needs of both the newborn and the recovering mother. This includes expert infant care, such as feeding, bathing, and sleep routine management, to ensure your baby's needs are met with professional care. For mothers, the nanny offers assistance with postnatal recovery processes, nutritional advice, and preparation of confinement meals to promote healing.

Additionally, our nannies can offer guidance on breastfeeding techniques and emotional support to help mothers navigate the challenges of the postpartum period. Our aim is to ensure that families receive the highest level of care and support during this significant time, fostering a positive environment for both mother and child.
