We are so grateful for Alana!! As first time parents we were excited but terrified to bring home our baby from the hospital. We immediately felt comfortable when we met Alana and had an instant connection, Her love, dedication, and overall knowledge of babies was evident from the start. In order to make her time with us most effective, she took the time to ask us what we wanted to get out of our experience with her. We ultimately decided to trust her schedule method that she has developed from her 11+ years of experience. We had mentally prepared ourselves for an abundance of sleepless nights which ultimately never happened thanks to Alana’s schedule method. She took the time to engage with our baby and demonstrated such love and affection, as if he was her own. Alana managed to exceed all of my husband’s and I’s expectations. She taught us s many things from morning routines, feeding & pumping, bath time, changing diapers, burping, sleep time and a variety of little tricks regarding baby care. When it was time for her to go, we were crushed, but we knew we would be okay because she provided a wealth of knowledge to use for years to come. I truly believe I am a confident mother because of Alana. My husband and I highly recommend her to any parent! We look forward to being blessed to have her back for baby #2!

As first time parents, we were referred to Alana by a close friend of ours. Nervous for both a new baby and new addition to our small New York apartment, Alana blended in seamlessly from the moment we met her. She cared so well for our daughter, and helped me a great deal with breast feeding and pumping, while also giving me the time I needed to heal. She was a wonderful teacher and helped us feel comfortable and ready to care for our daughter after she left. She is sweet, funny, nurturing and easy-going. We love Alana and continue to recommend her to all of our friends.

I would like to give an outstanding review for Alana Kirk. As first time parents, we were apprehensive for anyone to care for our newborn son. Alana had a wonderful disposition with both, us as cautious parents and more importantly with our son. She essentially taught me how to be a first time mom. I had a traumatic delivery and she prioritized my healing while caring for our son with such ease. She stayed with us for three weeks, day and night, providing the best guidance I could have ever asked for. She went the extra mile in all she did whether it was helping me breastfeed and store up my milk supply or organizing my son’s closet and drawers with all newborn “must haves”; she paved the way for us as a new family of three. She is well versed in newborn care and helped us establish our son’s feed/play/sleep routines. She taught us that it’s not about putting your baby on “schedule” it’s the fact that your baby will thrive on consistency. We are living proof that her words are true. Our son has been doing amazing with eating, playing, and sleeping since she left. She helped us establish healthy bedtime habits. When she was here she was always helpful and non intrusive. I would walk into our son’s room and she would be playing with him and doing tummy time often. Having Alana in our home allowed me to become a caring and effective mother and I can’t thank her enough. We truly enjoyed her as our baby nurse and would recommend her to anyone.

It is hard to put into words just how amazing Alana is. Before she even steps foot in your house, she puts you at ease by providing endless reassurance that no matter how little you know about being parents, by the end of your time with her, you will feel prepared to take it all on before she moves on to her next family. And family it is, Alana cares for each child as if they were her own, and has the most genuine love for what she does.  She is able to adapt to each family and child, and in the midst of what is often a very hectic time, has the ability to remain calm and be the voice of reason for all. Alana not only supported our daughter in the first 2 weeks of her life, but supported us as well.  She provided helpful suggestions for breastfeeding, which was a challenge for me in the beginning, and was a source of support while I found my way.  Alana was beyond patient with my endless hormone induced indecisiveness, sleep-deprived mood swings, and beyond all, was someone I genuinely enjoyed spending time with. It is an interesting dynamic to welcome a “stranger” into your home during one of the most vulnerable times in your life, however, at no point did she feel like a “stranger” as Alana walks into your life and immediately becomes family.  On the day she left to join another family, I cried for an hour after she did as I felt like a ray of sunshine walked out the door.  When I finally checked my cell phone, I already had a message from Alana reassuring me that it would be okay. And she was right – thanks to Alana, we have a happy baby who sleeps 12 hours a night and eats like a champ.  We wholeheartedly believe that this is because of Alana.  We have kept in touch along the way, with Alana checking in every now and then, and us the same, as we still reach out to her for guidance or to share our daughter’s most recent milestone.  Should we have another baby, we would without pause welcome Alana back into our home as we cannot imagine coming home from the hospital without her!

Being a FTM was daunting. The fears of if I was doing anything right frustrated me to say the least- I was obviously going through PPD. I had absolutely no idea what a baby nurse was or did therefore I didn’t hirer one; until my friend saw me looking sleep deprived and asked if I needed a contact number for her Baby Nurse which she LOVED. I believe she referred Alana to over 15 of her friends and family . After a week I called Alana and although she was booked for the year she made it happen. Absolutely NO words can describe how Alana controlled and organized everything. The baby’s nursery, closet, drawers, sterilized baby bottles and pump stuff, the belly button, baby massage, baths, tummy time; helped with my milk production and made sure my baby didn’t get a “flat head”. My baby was not latching at first and Alana was very knowledgeable on the reasons why. I was ready to give up on breast feeding and pumping but the support I got from her was very encouraging. I started off pumping 1.5 ounces of milk sometimes I got none but by the time Alana left my milk supply was in fully. I would pump 11 ounces. She would make me a pot of mummy tea every morning and strategically gave me my vitamins even when I would forget. My baby is now 9 months and my freezer is stacked with milk for rainy days or when I decide to stop. Alana put the excess milk in storage bags and organized them by days and months. What amazed me most was how my baby was sleeping 8 hours at only a couple of weeks and past his birth weight in only 2 days. Mummies you NEED Alana she is what I would describe a Wonder Woman. Beside all of this Alana also helped even after she left by taking the time to reply to my many questions. Because of her we are considering baby number 2 soon and we are hoping she’s free for that time. We love you Alana xoxoxo
