Heydi is a great nighttime nanny! My husband and I met her through Richmond Birth and Baby and have been very grateful to have had her help. She worked with us for 2 months and helped get our son into a great nighttime routine.
Heydi gave advice that was extremely helpful for first time parents. For example, she recommended using a larger size diaper overnight to prevent leaks when our son started wetting through his clothes. This helped him get a better night's sleep. Another great suggestion was to use a mesh liner around his crib, so that his limbs could not get stuck between the slats.
Not only did Heydi care for our son, but she made sure I was doing well as a new mother. She gave me tips on increasing my breast milk - advice that I would not have come across otherwise (and I had definitely done my share of Google searches!). It was helpful that she had firsthand experience in the products she recommended, and also in being a mother who breastfed her children.
I looked forward to the nights when she worked for us, since it meant that my husband and I would sleep well, reassured that our son was well taken care of. I would highly recommend Heydi to anyone looking for a dependable and trustworthy nighttime nanny!
I cannot express how wonderful my experience with Heydi was. She was AMAZING, hands down. From the time she got to my house to when she left, I felt at peace. She brought me so much comfort. Heydi was so gentle and caring with my son and made him her first priority. She helped me transition from a being a mother of one to being a mother of two much more easily. If I could have, I would have hired her much more often than I was able to. I wish I had known her when I was postpartum with my first child. Heydi will make your transition much smoother and easier. Having a newborn is not easy for anyone and the lack of sleep makes it almost seem impossible. By enabling you to have a full night's sleep, Heydi makes it easier to be a mother during the day.
Heydi is a wonderful, caring, considerate person and she is completely trustworthy. It is a little unnerving at first to have someone in your home at night taking care of your baby, but Heydi will put you at ease immediately. I truly enjoyed her company and loved every minute she was in my home. I highly recommend Heydi to any mom out there, whether it's your first or your fourth.
