Where to find the perfect confinement nanny
Sourcing and selecting your ideal confinement nanny is just about to be made so much easier with the information in this article...
Whether you are a first-time mum or a mum of many, having a new baby is a beautiful, yet challenging experience.
In the past, mums often had their own mothers helping out with a new baby, especially during the confinement period. But now, more and more mums are turning to confinement nannies to help them out, especially in the first month.
Who is a confinement nanny and what does she do?
A confinement nanny is usually an older woman well-versed in traditional Chinese confinement practices. Considered to be an expert, she cares for the needs of a mum and her newborn during the one-month confinement period.
Apart from her primary role of caring for mum and baby, a confinement nanny also:
- Bathes baby everyday
- Feeds baby with expressed breast milk if mum chooses to do this, especially in the night
- Looks after baby in general so mummy can rest
- Cooks traditional, nourishing confinement dishes for the new mum.
- Washes baby's clothes and milk bottles
Needless to say, a good confinement nanny can truly be a blessing to a mum, whether new or experienced.

How much will it cost?
CaregiverNanny charges a flat fee of just SGD$600 (with a SGD$120 surcharge for urgent bookings for nannies to start within 30 days).
This includes advice on picking a nanny, arranging interviews with the chosen nanny candidate(s) and the paperwork for getting visas for the nanny, should she be from Malaysia.
Depending on your personal preference and the additional services you need from your nanny, you're looking at paying a Malaysian nanny between SG$2,500-3,000, and a Singaporean nanny between SG$3,000-3,500.
Full-time or part-time
CaregiverNanny provides both full-time and part-time nanny service. If you prefer to have a full-time nanny, you have the option of having either day-care or overnight nanny services depending on your needs.
For day-care service from Monday to Friday, a nanny can be arranged to babysit at your place, or you could even take your baby to the nanny’s place.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a part-time nanny, you can request for this service for a few hours (minimum four hours block) each day for at least three times a week, be it at home, a hotel, or a serviced apartment.
When should I book my confinement nanny?
Due to increasing demand for CaregiverNanny's services, it is recommended that you book the nanny of your choice at least three to six months before your estimated delivery date.
However, there are also a few nannies who are available to start urgently, i.e. within a month, and you can check out their profiles on the CaregiverNanny website.
What's more, ad-hoc part-time nanny services can be requested via email at least one day in advance.
If you find that the nanny doesn't meet your requirements, a free nanny replacement will be made within the first 5 days.
