A friend of ours recommended Tabu and she is AMAZING. She worked with us for 3 months, 5 nights/week and was a huge help in ensuring that my husband and I could get some much-needed rest after our baby was born. She was my partner in the new-mom journey and even helped our son get into a good sleep routine toward the end of her time with us.
In the beginning, I slept between the baby's feedings and because we had Tabu my husband got a full night's rest every night, and as a result was very energetic and able to help me during the day. Tabu helps with light housework as well - it was a huge relief in the morning to wake up and have a sink clear of dishes. Our baby is now almost a year old and we've recommended Tabu to 2 families, both of whom have had positive experiences. She even comes back to watch our son sometimes so that we can have a date night and is filling in this week while our regular nanny is on vacation. I would recommend Tabu to anyone!
We found Tabu through a friend's referral, and are so thankful that Tabu helped us the first few months of our daughter's life. Our daughter was a little colic-y and had a difficult time sleeping more than a few minutes in a row. Tabu gave us a much-needed break from the crying and bouncing during the night, helped stretch the time between feedings so that we could get longer stretches of sleep (when appropriate), and did it all while maintaining a positive outlook. Tabu drew from her years of experience with babies to help us identify potential issues that we would never have known to look out for (e.g. very hungry baby that required formula supplementation, silent reflux), while putting our minds at ease when we worried over the little things (like hiccups!). We would, and have, whole-heartedly recommend Tabu!
We were so fortunate to have Tabu Boone join our family for the first 6 weeks of our newborn son’s life. She not only took great care of our son overnight so that we could get some rest, but was a wealth of information and hands-on guidance about postpartum health, breastfeeding, infant sleep, and general infant care. We felt immediately at ease when she was around. Even since she worked for us (oh, I wish we could have kept her longer!) we have remained in touch. She is, simply put, lovely. I would not hesitate to employ her again in the future.
