  • some towns and cities have babysitting services that provide background checks on there babysitter's before they are able to work and they are trained with saftey training with baby cpr ect. My dh and i generally have family watch my son but it is a good option if your family is busy. Hope you have good luck with yours mine is 7 months old too!
