Our current schedule changes all the time. My husband works swing shift but also works a lot of off duty because he is a deputy of our town. He will be in and out of the house while the caregiver is at the house with our daughter. She is 4 months old and on a pretty lax schedule. She drinks a bottle every 2-4 hours, plays and then sleeps. She loves to be rocked and will rock all day. Our ideal caregiver: My ideal caregiver will be patient and loving towards my 4-month-old daughter. Also someone one who has a flexible schedule because I only need care for 2-3 days a week. Someone who is responsible and follows direction well.. Looking for a caregiver for my infant. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
