Finding good nanny for baby is a daunting task. However, if you keep few things in mind while searching a nanny, you can find right nanny for your littler wonder. Here are some tips which will make it easier for you to search a good nanny

Tips for finding Good Nanny


You will find excellent nannies. However, your task ends when you find the right nanny for your baby. Have a quick look at some tips for finding good nanny for your baby.

  • Do a research on internet about nannies, before you appoint nanny for your baby. Internet is the best medium to find out experiences of parents about nannies. However, your decision should not be completely based on what you find on internet and other case studies. You need to be practical as well.
  • Talk to your friends, relatives and neighbours who already have nannies at their place for taking care of their babies. Talking to them will help you to know what exactly they went through when they were searching nanny for their baby. You may even find good nanny with their references.
  • Avoid taking help from agencies which provide maids and nannies as much as possible. Many parents have bad experiences of dealing with such agencies.
  • Try to meet as many nannies as you can before taking a final decision. Take at least two rounds of personal interview.
  • Appoint an experienced nanny who is well versed with the skills like feeding, diapering and grooming the baby. Try to look for a nanny who is older in age and who can take care of your baby like a mother.
  • Do not give total control of your house to the nanny before you develop complete trust on her.
  • Try to find the credibility of nanny by carrying out small inquiry at the places where she has worked earlier if possible.
  • Let your family and yourself spend some time with the nanny so that you and your family understand her very well. At the same time, your baby will also get sometime to adjust with nanny.
  • Try to get complete information about the family background etc; of nanny when you take final decision of employing her. At the same time, try to make her feel comfortable at your place. Stay at home for few days and observe her to make sure that everything will go smoothly after you start working.

You can find a full time or part time nanny for taking care of your baby. However, you need to decide in advance regarding this issue so that you can select good and right nanny. The most important thing which parents should make sure while finding a nanny is that their baby is in safe hands. Therefore, be careful and alert while finding nanny for your little wonder.

a nanny should be kept only after a reference as then one is sure of her credentials but this is also not a fool proof plan. Your tips are great.
