Baby Nanny, Choosing the right person for the job

Wednesday, Mar. 31st 2010 3:50 PM

I will be having twins girls in another three months.  My husband and I have been talking about hiring a part time nanny during the day.   I am a work at home mom which works very well for us.  I have been able to take care of my two year old son and continue to work at home.  There are just a few days out of the week I need to go out to appointments for my job and I take my son with me or have my mom look after him.

Now with the girls on the way I will still be doing the same but I am going to just need help with the babies and my son during the day when my husband is at work.   My question is how do you go about choosing the right person for the job.

I am not so much worried about leaving my girls with the person because that will not happen.  My mom would still come over on the days I have to leave the house so that she can be with the children and the nanny.  I am just not much of a trusting person until I feel I really know someone. I need the help but want to pick a person that I can deal with.  So for people that have nanny or long term baby sitters what would be your advise.  All advise is welcome.  Thanks

    I would first suggest that you do a back round check on anyone you are thinking of employing. You may want to look into having someone from a nanny service. Compared to someone off the street.

    Go with your gut feeling. If someone does not seem 100% right move on to the next person.

    The good thing is as you stated you or your mom would be in the house with the nanny/baby sitter. This will give you the time to get to know the person better. I do agree to do a back round check. They are easy to do now and can be done on line.

    When you are interviewing your choices make sure they know what it is you are looking for. Feel them out. The person you get is there to help you so make sure that she is someone you feel good about.

    Remember you are the boss. I went though three nannies before finding the one that really worked best for us.

    Do not commit to anyone at first. Have the few people you narrowed down work a day for you. It is not only about how you feel (though that is a main factor) But how well that person can deal with your children. Or how your children get along with the person.

    Even as babies they may like the way one person is with them over another. This give you a chance to see how they are able to get along with your children before saying you are the one.

    For our two sons we went to our family first and got our niece to baby sit. Both my wife and I worked. My wife part time so we needed someone to baby sit our boys in the morning until 2:00.

    If we could not find someone in our family that we knew and trusted, I think we would have tried figuring out how to stay home with our sons ourselves. We found it very hard to trust someone we did not know. I am thankful we had our niece.

    See if you can go to trusted friends or family members first.
