@littleG:  Good for her. Why not if she can afford it?

Though since she’s pumping breast milk, won’t she have to wake up at night to pump anyway? After 10 hours my boobs would have exploded 🙂 So why not just wake up and breast feed?

That said, it’s her choice.

@lilchicana:  +1

Also, I feel that once you have a baby, you’ve decided to give up your life and freedom, so hiring someone for that just seems selfish to me. I don’t think she’s cut out for motherhood.

Why wouldn’t she? Sounds kind of like a wonderful idea.

This is probably the only time I won’t judge her. If I could afford help, I’d probably want to hire somebody to help out too. 

Motherhood shouldn’t be a contest about who does the most or sacrifices the most or is the most exhausted.

Not gonna lie, it would have been nice to have someone else handle DD in the middle of the night. But I breastfed, so it wasn’t an option.

People underestimate how out-of-whack chronic lack of sleep can make you feel. I remember genuinely feeling like I was bordering on Crazyland some days due to lack of sleep. Having someone else get up with her even a couple nights a week would have been lovely.

I don’t really care. I know a couple who considered hiring a night nurse, and it wasn’t because they didn’t love their child. They both worked full time doing law, and I’m sure they wanted a full night of sleep. They never ended up hiring the nurse because they felt so judged for it. If you have the money and are still loving on your kid when you can, then a night nurse can be wonderful I think.

I see nothing wrong with it whatsoever. Baby is looked after and someone has a job, therefore win -win!

I agree with PP, parenthood shouldn’t be a competition over who has it harder. Honestly, as someone with insomnia (that I’m under a specialists care for, currently managed by sleep hygiene, but I’ve taken different meds for it before), I’m really anxious about nights if I ever have a baby, and FI will be taking on a large part of night duties. If we could afford a night nurse, we totally would.

I would totally hire a night nurse if I could! Someone to change the nappies and just bring me the baby to breastfeed or use pumped bottle then put them back in their crib. I think it would help me to sleep better knowing that I could really rest and not have to listen for baby. I think anything that helps the parents stay strong so the time you spend with the baby you are fresh and happy to be there, why not?

i agree with pps who say why not have alittle extra help fi she can afford it.

You make it sound so negative, like being a mom = martydom. Game over mom, your life is over now. I don’t personally agree with that. I also don’t think having a little extra help means she’s not cut out for motherhood, i thnk you sound a bit judgemental!

Good for her. Nothing wrong with that. If it not something you would do it doesn’t automatically make it wrong.
