How to Find Infant Care in the United States

Start by posting a profile with everything candidates should know about your infant care position. Next, browse candidates and reach out to a few people you think might make a great fit. Once you find the right candidate, you can take advantage of Nanny Lane’s services, including background checks, PLUS, and nanny payroll.

Common Responsibilities of Infant Care

Infant nannies are best suited for families’ that have newborns. An infant nanny offers support with the care and well-being of newborns. Infant care nanny responsibilities include diapering and providing care for any rashes, swaddling, bathing, feeding, and burping. Infant care nannies are very skilled in caring for newborns, and some have experience specifically with premature newborns or multiples. It is important to take these factors into account when determining how much you should pay an infant care nanny.

If you’re looking for early socialization for your baby while saving on the cost of an infant nanny, you can try a nanny share. In a nanny share, you split the costs of an infant care nanny with another family. Alternatively, you could create a nanny share to create an infant care nanny position by having two families who want part-time child care. Beyond costs, there are other considerations in deciding between an infant nanny and an infant nanny share. It is essential to think about your family's additional desired responsibilities and the infant nanny when making this decision.

Nanny Interview Questions for Infant Care Providers

Once you start connecting with prospective infant nannies, the next step is an infant care interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:

  • What do you love about being a nanny for infants?
  • What is your specific experience with this age group?
  • Are you Infant CPR/First Aid certified? If not, are you willing to be trained?
  • How do you handle a crying baby?
  • What do you feed an infant? At 0-3 months? 3-6 months? 6-9 months? 9-12 months?
  • How do you set up the infant’s crib for a nap?
  • What kind of activities will you plan to engage my baby?

At this stage, you can ask for references to better understand if they should move forward in your hiring process.

Contracts for Infant Care

After you’ve found the right candidate to be your infant nanny, writing a job offer can your family think through the what you’re asking of your infant nanny and help determine what compensation is fair. For your infant nanny, a job offer fosters understanding and enables them to commit more easily.

If you want to run a background check on the candidates for your infant nanny position, we recommend giving a job offer that is contingent upon the results of the background check.

After presenting your job offer, facilitate a discussion between your family and your infant nanny to clarify any confusion. Once you have found an agreement with your infant nanny, you can document this in a contract for your infant nanny. Setting clear expectations and fostering an environment for trust is essential to building the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny.
