    DS is 20 months and we either use DFs parents, my dad or my 16 (almost 17) year old sister.

    We recently took my sister on a holiday to Qld with us so we could have a few nights out alone. She is awesome with DS and he adores her. I completely trust her with him.

    I have only had a babysitter once and she was a 30yo diploma qualified childcare worker. Otherwise my mum has had her a couple of times but she lives 2 hours away so it's not often.

    For Miss3 & Miss5, my 13yo daughter.

    For all the children, my 18yo daughter - but only for one night or one day, not for too long at once.

    For just Miss9 and Miss11, I could leave them with Miss16 for a few hours only.

    At a pinch, Miss13 looks after Miss3 & Miss5, and Miss16 looks after Miss9 and Miss11, but only for a few hours not too long.
