Choosing a Nanny
If you do decide upon a nanny for your child's care, allow plenty of time for making this important hiring decision, says Frost. "Choosing a caregiver for your child is one of the biggest, most important things you'll ever do," says Frost. "Set aside any time from four to six weeks to look for a nanny, because this is something you shouldn't rush."
At the beginning of the hiring process just start jotting down notes, making lists of the things you think are important. This will help you prepare for the interview process. "When you're in front of a nanny, especially if the baby is there, the jitters of an interview can set in and make you forget what you wanted to know or to say," says Frost. "Be sure and have your questions prepared in advance in writing so you don't miss anything."
