I'm trying to find a nanny and I'm having such a difficult time.  I'm a first time mother, my daughter just turned 2 and I worry about everything!  I can't imagine this is much help to my search.  Can someone give me some some helpful advice or possible recommendations?


Thanks ; )

Hmm...  I've heard that there is a difference in the job "Nanny" and "Babysitter".  A friend of mine who advertised for a "Nanny" was asked by the prospective job applicant how much time she would be asked to spend in the States with the family and how much time overseas at, perhaps, the families European villa...

What kind of nanny are you looking for?  That helps, to figure out what you really want.  Obviously someone who loves kids... but, are you looking for a young person with high energy, or an older one to act like a grandparent?  A live in, or one that comes during the day?  A girl or a guy?  (yes, there are more guys out there now, working as "mannies".)  There are placement agencies, if you want to go that route.  They usually do background checks, and will help match you up with someone who will work well for you. 

Of course, there are also daycare centers, or you could do a home daycare....  and even with that there are large centers with lots of kids, or small ones with just an adult and a couple of kids. 

But, interview, interview, interview.  If something makes you nervous, listen to your instincts.
