Business Spotlight: Night Nanny

Lola MagazineLola Shreveport, Melody Wheeler

Over the past three decades, my journey in childcare has been a remarkable one. It all started when I ran an infant nursery for 10 years, caring for precious little ones from birth to 15 months of age. Seeking to expand my knowledge and understanding, I pursued a degree in psychology, immersing myself in the fascinating world of human behavior and development.

After 15 years of enriching experiences in the field of psychology, my heart called me back to my true passion—nurturing and guiding children. While having lunch with one of my best friends, we discussed ways I could enhance my support for parents. I embarked on a new chapter as a night nanny, dedicating myself to providing exceptional care and support to families for the past decade. Through my years as a night nanny, I have gathered a wealth of invaluable tips and tricks that can greatly benefit new parents.

Drawing upon my extensive expertise, I am excited to share my knowledge and insights with new parents, offering them a wealth of practical advice, proven techniques, and personalized guidance. With a deep understanding of child development, a compassionate approach, and an array of experience, I am committed to empowering new parents with the tools and confidence they need to navigate the joys and challenges of parenthood.

Clients can place their trust in my guidance, forged from years of valuable experience, and anchored by a deep love, understanding, and compassion for every family I am blessed to work with.

Consultations take place in the comfort of your home or can be conducted seamlessly through Zoom calls. Reach out to me to schedule an appointment, to begin your journey of parenthood with expert guidance by your side.

New parents can benefit in several ways from working with a new parent consultant. Some key benefits include:

1. Guidance and Support: I offer guidance and support tailored to the specific needs of the parents and their baby. I can provide valuable advice and reassurance during the early stages of parenthood.

2. Expertise and Experience: I have experience in infant care and parenting and can share my knowledge and expertise. I can offer insights into topics such as sleep techniques, feeding routines, baby care, and developmental milestones.

3. Personalized Approach: I can help parents develop a personalized approach to parenting based on their baby’s unique needs, temperament, and family dynamics. I also can assist in creating schedules, routines, and strategies that work for the individual family.

4. Setbacks: I can help parents navigate challenges and setbacks that may arise, such as sleep regressions, and feeding difficulties. I can provide strategies and solutions to address these issues effectively.

5. Confidence and Empowerment: Working with a consultant can boost parents’ confidence and help them feel more empowered in their parenting journey. By providing education, resources, and ongoing support, I can help parents make informed decisions and feel more capable in caring for their baby.

Overall, I can offer valuable guidance, support, and expertise to help new parents feel more confident, informed, and prepared as they navigate the joys and challenges of parenthood.

As a new parent consultant, I specialize in teaching effective routines, setting up schedules, and promoting healthy sleep habits for babies. Working with me, parents can learn the skills and strategies to establish consistent routines, create structured schedules, and foster healthy sleep patterns for their little ones.

One key area of expertise is guiding parents in teaching their babies the valuable skill of self-soothing. This involves equipping parents with techniques and methods to help their babies develop self-calming abilities, which can contribute to better sleep and overall well-being. I provide practical advice and support to parents, empowering them to navigate the challenges of sleep and create an environment conducive to healthy sleep habits.

With my expertise, parents can gain the knowledge and confidence to create nurturing routines, establish consistent schedules, and guide their babies towards better sleep habits.

I am thrilled to bring my unique blend of experience, skills, and genuine care to support and guide you on this incredible journey of parenthood. Together, we can create a nurturing environment and foster the best possible outcomes for your little one.

As first time parents, my husband and I needed lots of guidance on how to take care of our new born baby. We heard about Ms. Melody through family and friends, and she was a gift from up above! She had great recommendations of the things we needed, what to expect, and helped our little one to be on a good, solid schedule. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she genuinely cares and will listen to all of your questions and concerns about parenthood. I highly recommend her to help anyone who’s starting a family!


Melody was a lifesaver for us. I had my 4th child and knew I needed help when I went back to work. Melody helped us get on a schedule and gave me so much peace of mind! She is so knowledgeable and caring. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. I give her the highest recommendation!

“I have been blessed with one son who brings so much  joy to my life. He is my pride and joy, and I cherish spending time with him. In addition to my son, I have the privilege of being a grandmother to a wonderful grandson and a precious granddaughter. They bring an extra sparkle to my life, and I absolutely adore them.

Being a grandmother is a role I hold dear to my heart. I embrace the title of “Mimzy” with love and excitement. Spending quality time with my grandchildren is a true delight, and I cherish the special bond we share. Whether we’re playing games, baking, reading stories, watching movies, or simply laughing those moments create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

My grandchildren bring an abundance of love and joy into my life, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of their journey. They have enriched my life in countless ways, and I look forward to creating many more treasured moments with them as we continue to build beautiful memories.”
