Nurse externships occur while a student is still in nursing school. They are meant to give the nursing student more clinical experience and confidence prior to graduation. Nurse externs work under the supervision of an experienced registered nurse serving as coach. Nurse externs may also have the opportunity to take nursing workshops and attend conferences during the extern period.

How often should I nurse?

Every 2-3 hours

Developmental_pediatrics
If you just had your baby, you should plan to nurse at least every 2-3 hours, with a goal of about 8-12 feedings per 24 hrs. It is a good idea to keep track of your feedings in the first week of life. Once your milk supply comes in and your baby starts to take more milk at a time, the feeding frequency declines. This is something your pediatrician will be able to provide further guidance on.

How much do baby nurses cost?

You mean neonatal?

Nurses
Do you mean the nurses that take care of babies in the hospital? Or do you mean private duty nurses that help take care of babies in the home ? With both answers it depends what part of the country/world you are in, how much experience nurse has, & what the work circumstances are. A nurse who works the night shift, might be paid more than one who works the day shift, because fewer want nites.

Can I nurse my premature baby?

Yes

Baby
As your premi's status improves and feeding is started, your expressed breast milk can be used for early gastric tube feeding. Sometimes they will mix this with material to increase the protein & calorie content. When some of the breathing support is removed and baby shows a good latch & swallow, you can feed in the unit. You can work with your OB & lactation consultant to boost your supply if low
