The NurseMaid sings Rock-a-Bye Baby to the occupant and gently moves the buggy back and forth to get the baby to fall asleep.
The NurseMaid is equipped with a bee-like toy that she waves in front of the occupant as it makes a whistling noise. The NurseMaid also tickles the occupant. The NurseMaid also plays "This Little Piggy" with the occupant. Given that most characters in Donald's world only have three toes, she only says "This little piggy went to market. This little piggy stayed home. This little piggy went, 'Whee, whee, whee, whee, whee!' All the way home." After the last piggy, the Nurse Maid tickles the occupant's foot.
The NurseMaid can produce milk which she uses to feed the occupant if he or she cries for it or is very grumpy.
The NurseMaid has a metal belt she uses to stop the babies from falling out of the buggy
When the NurseMaid feels like the occupant needs it, she changes his or her diaper. First she sets a cloth diaper down and then powders the occupant's bottom. Following that, she puts the diaper on them and uses a safety pin to keep it there. After that, she powders the occupant some more.
The NurseMaid's only problems are when the Nurse Maid gives milk, she takes a bottle and slams the bottom of it, spraying the baby with milk. Also, the Nurse Maid can't distinguish who's in the buggy, so as long as the occupant fits, she treats them like a baby.
The NurseMaid is very calm and speaks in a motherly tone, often speaking in baby talk. She's very playful as shown when she kept tickling Donald. She's also very protective as she stopped Donald from leaving by trapping him with her belt. She appears not to like when the occupant talks back or is violent as when Donald tried to bat the Nurse Maid's toy away, she used it to hit him in the beak.
