@A-Squared just wanted to add hiring your first nanny is a very stressful process. So many people think nannies are a luxury but for my family I can't work without one. My hours are unpredictable and I can't guarantee I'll be at daycare on time so it gives me peace of mind. But you are handing your kids over to someone you've never met before, they basically are in your home all day without you and you have to trust them.
My best advice is interview interview interview!!!! I will meet with 12 nannies before hiring one. I have to get a really good vibe from them and imagine them with my kids. I've knocked back incredibly experienced women because I just felt my kids wouldn't bond with them and gone with my heart. My gorgeous first nanny was a young mum from Vietnam who was here as her husband was studying at Melbourne university. She had one son and looked after my daughter like her own. Lucy loved her and when she moved back to Vietnam we all missed her. She was amazing just because she thought my daughter was wonderful and took great care of her. But she had no prior experience.
Good luck x
