Not just a confinement nanny, a companion and friend too.
• Bathing baby daily.
• Feeding baby (once breastfeeding is well-established, you can express breastmilk so that she can take over one or more night feeds).
• Generally caring for the baby so that the new mother can rest.
• Cooking special confinement dishes such as traditional chicken soup which is considered extra-nutritious. In smaller households (especially if it is just you and your husband), it is not unreasonable to ask the Confinement Care Giver to cook all the regular meals.
• Washing the baby and the new mother's clothes.
