It is difficult for you to imagine leaving your baby and child with another person at childcare or with a babysitter, but it's a reality. Even though you really want to be with your child, that is not always possible, and you need to find childcare and babysitters to help you with taking care of your baby and child.
It's really hard to imaging leaving baby or child with a new person, but if you approach it correctly you should find someone great.
Start by asking around to recommend a sitter or child care center they trust:
Check references and certification. Ask a lot of questions:
- Do you have any references?
- How much experience do you have?
- Where do you live?
- Do you have any children yourself?
- Do you know CPR?
- What kinds of activities do you do with the children?
Trusting your instincts is just the first step, but get all the information necessary to make the right choice. If it does not feel right, follow your instincts.
