How can I find a nanny to take care of my infant?

Finding a Nanny for an Infant

Finding a nanny for an infant may be more difficult than finding a nanny for an older child. While children in general require a lot of time and energy, infants are particularly demanding in their helplessness and total dependence on someone to care for them. Parents can use a nanny agency, advertise in the classifieds, or ask for recommendations from friends and family, but they will still need to compile a list of important questions to help them find a nanny for their baby. Interview questions should include the following:

  1. How long have you been employed with this nanny agency?
  2. What was your last job?
  3. What medical training have you had?
  4. How much experience have you had with infants?
  5. How well do you handle a crisis?
  6. How do you respond to a crying baby?
  7. How do you feel if a baby cries for long periods of time?
  8. What do you think is your main responsibility toward an infant?
  9. Do you think that you can spoil an infant? If so, how?
  10. Are you an organized person? Give me some examples?
