If you’re looking for a baby photographer near Annandale VA then you’ve come to the right professional photographer.
Are you a new mom and looking for a sitter for your newborn that you can trust? It may seem like an impossible task. Here are some tips from The Bump’s How To Find A Great Babysitter to give you some insight into the process.
First start by talking to family and friends to get recommendations. Don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions to see if this person is the right fit for you.
Check out any organizations that you feel are reliable. One possible source is your place of worship-do they have people to take care of babies during your service? Normally organizations require specific training such as infant CPR and do background checks.
Go online to sitter websites and agencies. You can view an online profile and see a person’s experience to find potential candidates.
Once you find some sitters to interview look for these things to determine if they would be someone you would want to hire.
Having good references is a must. Ask the candidate for a list and call these people to find out what former employers say about this person and their work.
Does the person know or been trained in CPR and first aid?
Punctuality is important. If the person does not bother to show up on time for the interview then they may not be that interested or responsible for the position.
See how the sitter interacts with your baby. After the interview if you are unsure you can schedule a short babysitting session. This session will include you being present part of the time to observe the sitter with your child and part of the time to go run an errand. You will have to pay the person for this but it can be money well spent.
