These days, it's not uncommon for new moms to hire an extra set of hands to help her out with the family's latest addition.

Whether it's a baby nurse, night nanny, or a sitter for a few hours during the day, it seems that the latest generation of mothers have figured out a way to lighten their new load.

While it may help relieve the much dreaded insomnia, some argue it takes away from the learning and bonding experience that takes place in the first days of parenthood.
