With limited outings since Hannah's birth, it seems as though it is time to get up off of the couch and go out. Now that she is sleeping famously from anywhere between 6-7pm until 5am, there really is no reason to sit around all night.
But really how much fun can it be for the grandparents to sit here, Hannah already in her crib upon their arrival? Maybe they don't mind but I feel bad. They've got better things to do than sit here on a Saturday night.
So, I guess the quest begins to find a trusted babysitter.
Even though this person won't be very hands on (unless Hannah's decides to wake up), we both don't feel comfortable with a teenager. I'm tempted to ask some of the nanny's in the park nearby for recommendations.
Unless maybe you have a suggestion?
Not really sure where to start and haven't the slightest idea what the going rate is these days?
Are you sitting on a wealth of babysitter info? If so, please share!
