Have you used a nanny cam with your babysitter/nanny? Would you?

I have. On my babysitter. Never saw anything bad but I feel good about doing it and recommend it because you never really know people..

  • I have not, I hardly ever use a babysitter as a SAHM, but I definitely would if I needed a babysitter more often.

  • I only allow family to babysit, aside from the DCP my DD goes to. I've known her for over 2 years though. My cousin used one for a sitter she had hired. It put her at ease.

  • While I feel that it is wrong, I know that I would be tempted. Thankfully I am a SAHM and don't really need a babysitter.

  • I haven't mostly because they are pretty expensive. My in-laws babysit the most and don't think because they are family I wouldn't use it on them too, they can do more harm than a stranger. They never sit here at our house so it would be hard, but you better believe if we get a sitter here then we will get one and use it. It is maddening that our DD can't tell us how her stays go and that is why a nanny cam would get ride of that issue.

  • I've never used a sitter but I would definitely use a cam if/when I do.

  • If I were to use a babysitter, I would use a nanny came. I want to know my children are being treated right.
