Feedings

Get some more sleep...

Whether it's one shift or three, Tamara will take care of the baby during evening so you can get some rest.  While the demands of a new baby are plentiful, your body also demands that you need to rest so you can be present for your baby too.  Tamara is happy to help take some of the load off at night so you can wake up feeling refreshed to chase your kids when the sun comes up.
