Beware of maid Kusum from Mumbai. Do a proper background check before hirring her. She has a habit of telling new stories about her background. Wilma christian lady who bring her is also very smart. This lady is not reliable at all.

Subject:  dAY CARE V/S BABY SITTER FULL DAY MAID
Hi Friends,
Need your suggetions.
I have a 1yr 5mnts old son. Since past 3 mnts we are keeping

him in a day care. He stays there from arond 9:30 am to

6:30-7 pm. Since I have kept him there, he is falling ill,

quite often.
I have to leave work several times to go and pick him up from

the day care .. and we have been visiting doctors almost

every week..
We are now planning to keep a full time maid to look after

him.
Since we both are working, would like to know your

experiences on keeping a full time maid at home, how reliable

are they?
Is it good to keep a full time maid, without any supervision?
How well do maids keep children....
Do children going to day care, fall ill quite often?
What is a better solution, changing the day care , continuing

the same day care or keeping a full day maid.

I am at bangalore .. if anyone can also provide some pointers

to getting a good maid ..it will be very nice ..
Thanks in advance,
Hema

Hi Hema,
Where in bangalore are you located? I have a 1 yr daughter and she has been going to a daycare in Domlur since she was 6 months. We are very Happy with this daycare and so is our daughter.
Before keeping her in this daycare, we had tried keeping a 9.00am-6.00pm maid at home, but it didnt work out.

Subject:  Maid Vs Day care
Hi Hema,
For a span of 5 years I had almost 6/7 maids changed..I should say that we should be lucky to get good maids.. once u find some one good at any cost we try to keep them.. but the ones who r not good keeps rotating in one house or the other... what i have noticed with my exp so far is some maids gell along with some house.. maybe a person x might not be good at ur house but she will do really good at mine.. so it depends.. wht i have noticed was old ladies are not very comfortable for my fly.. i had around 2/3 which I had to change in very short time.... the best thing u can do is install a cctv at ur house if u have any doubt of the maids behavior..
keep on calling ur kid from office and try to talk so that we can get a picture of what is happening at home..

Subject:  Kids take time to get immune
Hi Hema,

up to the age of 2 - 3 years kids keep falling ill. Especially when they are sent to day cares. This is because of the environment. If the day care is clean the intensity of falling sick is less. If not its high. However the kid will still fall sick as he or she is with other kids and infections keeps spreading. Every time your kid falls sick he gets immune to that particular virus. So the more he falls sick his immunity goes up too.

If you are not happy with the hygiene in the creche then you need to find one that is good else its common for them to fall ill.

Keeping a maid is ok. Again depends on the nature of the maid. If she takes good care then its good. On the other had if she does not then its a major issue. Hiring local maids also exposes your home to theft and looting. You also cannot forget the fact that the kid tends to get more attached to them than the parents. The kid will not be exposed to learning and playing in a day care and hence will pick up lessons and word much slower than his peers who are in a good day care.

I am a father of 2 kids and have experience all what you are going through and I am writing this out of my experience. When my son crawls to my wife and if the maid comes in between, he will suddenly change the route to her. To my luck we had a good maid and now she is gone. My son is 8.5 months old and he goes to a day care from 9 - 6. If you stay somewhere close to Frazer town, Cooke Town, then i can give you the details of the place.

Cheers!

Pete

Hi,

Since you started this thread,let me put in my experience too. Need to be very Cautious with Boss Consultancy in Kottayam. They send a maid by name BABY, age should be 30 - 40 years and she just left after 30 days. The worst past is we hired her for post pregnancy care and baby care and she had no clue as to how to do it. Absolute no concern and caring to the new born.

Avoid them

Pete
