Are you a mom?
If so, you can ask real moms your parenting questions and get answers in minutes!
I am pregnant with our first baby ( girl ) , I plan on going back to work when my maturnity leave is up .
My fiance said he wants his sister to babysit the baby, because he wants our daughter to grow up close to the family and he trusts her, however seeing as she has 2 young kids and a small house I would prefer one of my friends do it.
Now his sister is upset because she said she had planned on watching her , but I dont think that is my fault because I didnt tell her she could. My main friend that might watch my baby has a bigger house and her child is 9 and hardly there , so I can expect her to pay more attention to my baby.
Now my fiance keeps saying "mean" things about my friend and being very immature because he isnt getting his way ...
This just makes me so mad that I can barely think straight !

I'd want family over a friend any day. Your DD could be around her cousins, and bond with them even more as she starts growing. The size of the house would be irrelevant to me.
You saying your friend has a messy house (and only a 9 yo) screams lazy to me as well. ::shrugs:: You have no guarantee she would give your baby 100% focus, or if she would leave the baby in a playpen and do her own thing. She is USED to NOT having kids around. I'd go with the family member.
