Post subject: Night nurse
We used a night nurse when our little guy was born, and it was the best thing ever. We were assured of 3 nights sleep a week, and Audrey followed our instructions to a T. I can highly recommend this to anyone who is sleep deprived. Audrey also took on a job 2 nights a week with twin girls who were 18 months and not sleeping.
Audrey can be contacted on 073 413 4247 and is available 7 nights a week. Please let her know I referred you if you do call. Thanks, Katherine

Hi, Just out of curiosity where is Audrey based and how much does it cost.. and also if this was something I could consider ( and afford!!) what qualifications do these night nurses have to have??

Audrey is based in Alex I think, and uses public transport (don't let this deter you, she is uber reliable and never late). She charges R200 a night from 6pm to 6am or 7pm to 7am and you give her dinner. She will bath the baby, feed as per your instructions, change, rock and soothe.
She was awesome for us, and started when Seb was about 4 weeks old. We met her first, and she asked all the right questions. She has a certificate on baby care, and previously worked with old people.
Good luck with your little guy! Kat

Find it hard to believe people want a stranger to look after their children just to sleep. I struggle when my 2 sleep at Grandma's for our very occasional night out. It's funny how different we all are with our children!!!!
