 That's great that you have so many people that you can trust with your LO.

Mostly my husband. While my baby was in the hospital, my toddler needed to be watched so we spent a few days apart while I watched the baby and he watched our toddler and we kept a skype line open. Nobody but me watches the baby though! 

While we were in the hospital giving birth to the baby, my mom watched our toddler but that made me a nervous wreck.

My parents live super close so they are always the ones to babysit. I also trust my cousin and a couple friends. Our brothers are too immature or self absorbed, and ILs are really old and mentally not all there. I might expand it once we are past toddler stages

I only leave them with their Dad or my Mom.

My mom or my BFF. There are also a couple of girls in my neighborhood that babysit, and they're great with my kids. When my sister gets here next month, she will be another one I can trust.

My parents, some other relatives, and a select group of people that I know well. My MIL can babysit my six year old but not the babies, she is very trustworthy, she lives with us, but has type one diabetes and sometimes can have unexpected medical complications, so she doesn't feel comfortable with the babies in case she has complications and wasn't thinking clearly. My six year old knows the signs for when she's having a problem and knows what to do, so he's okay for short amounts of time.
