First, congrats! Second, NOW! It is never too early to start looking!
Nannies prefer 8-5 or like 7hour days so I think this sounds great!
I wonder the same thing...I'm curious what it looks like on the other side as a parent looking for a sitter.
I think people are looking for consistency in work. I think it just depends upon the day and time. I would be frustrated if I were you as well.
Bring the baby to the bathroom with you. Put them on a towel, mat, etc... on the floor of the bathroom. Or, leave the door to the bathroom open so the kid can see you.
Does the baby wake up in the night? If yes, then if they are sleeping they will need a monitor. I would allow the sitter to sleep because a well rested sitter makes for a better sitter. I would request that the sitter is up at least 30 minutes before... more
I'm not sure how young you are (18? 16?). I think at the end of the day it is all about the experience you have.
