This was for my third baby and this review is for Mama Jin. I wasn't planning on having a post-partum nanny since I never had one with my first two but it is the BEST DECISION we have ever made. With this situation with Covid, my older two are always at home and my husband was unable to take any sort of leave from work. I don't know what I would have done without Mama Jin. She is truly a Godsend. From the moment we came home from the hospital, she fed me delicious meals and made me feel super comfortable and she had already befriended my older two so we felt like family right away.
My baby actually came on the day our family moved homes (crazy) and so our nursery was not set up at all. Mama Jin pretty much moved into our home before the baby and I did. She set up the nursery and organized all her clothes/diapers/etc so that everything would be ready when we got home. I felt so bad and thankful at the same time...
My third was not a great sleeper but Mama Jin always knew what to do and immediately knew what our baby needed/wanted. She's very knowledgeable about taking care of newborns and even as a third-time mom, I learned a lot from her and her methods. She's also very considerate and sensitive to my wants and ways with the baby. She always asked if I felt comfortable with this or that as she knew all parents are different in their 'parenting' ways.
Her cooking was AMAZING. There really isn't anything she can't make in the kitchen. From Korean to Mexican to whatever else, I ate so well the last four weeks and I am going to miss her food so much. I also learned several things from her and wrote some of her recipes down in my notes :) My older two kids are super picky and while it didn't need to be her priority to feed them she made sure ALL of my kids were fed!
Lastly, she was always kind, full of amazing stories, and so caring. She felt like a friend/mom I've had for a long time. I am truly going to miss her. Thank you so much for making my first four weeks with baby number 3 so smooth and enjoyable. I am forever grateful.
