My son was born 6 weeks early so he is a little behind in his development, especially his immune system, but he does not have any significant health issues. We have one large dog that is very friendly and two cats. Our ideal caregiver: My ideal caregiver would be someone that had experience with preemies but definitely someone that is patient, understanding, flexible, and responsible. Additional needs include being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my infant son. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
