The National Association of Neonatal Nurses states that a neonatal nurse can assist a baby from birth until up to two years of age. Neonatal nurses work with infants who have problems in the first month (called the neonatal period), as well as with infants who have longer-lasting problems.

According to the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, neonatal nurses may work as staff nurses doing routine care at hospitals; they may help mothers with breastfeeding. A breastfeeding consultant is another job opportunity for those who want to work with babies.

Additionally, as a therapist or counselor, there is the option of becoming an Infant Mental Health Specialist. This position would allow the therapist or counselor to work with infants and their caregivers regarding topics such as attachment, developmental delays, foster care, and abuse concerns.
