This is our first baby. We are very structured and routine people. We would like someone who will adhere to our routine, and values routines and schedules. Our jobs are very demanding, and involve very early mornings. Our ideal caregiver: A very calm and loving person who is very flexible. Also, someone who wants to be very engaging, and work with the baby on developmental milestones. Our jobs are not the typical 9-5 jobs. Someone who can be available some mornings by 5-5:30 a.m. We for sure need someone at the house by 6 a.m. Additional needs include having a reliable car and must be a non-smoker. My schedule varies. I work 3, 10 hour shifts, and do not work the same days every week. I usually know my schedule about 2 months in advance. It would be a guarantee of 32-35 hours/week. Hence, why we need someone flexible.
