The night nanny usually works with a family anywhere from one night to seven nights per week.
Because of their deep involvement in raising the children of the family, nannies were often remembered with great affection and treated more kindly than the junior servants.
They are highly experienced in all aspects of newborns aside from medical issues.
They might work 24 hours a day, seven days per week, but most work five nights/days a week for the first three months of a newborn's life.
Nannies differ slightly from others child care providers.
A childminder works out of her own home, operating as a small business; depending on the country they live in, government registration may or may not be required.
