The Bradley Family
Portland$15/hr  |  2 kids
Hello! We are looking for a loving nanny to be with our two children starting this November when I return to work. Our son just turned 3 and our daughter is two months old.

Before Covid, my son was part of a nature based toddler program that was a wonderful fit. We loved that he was outdoors everyday with a really loving caretaker and 1-2 other toddler friends. They had the best life!

While finding care for our kids is our first priority, we’d also be interested in exploring an arrangement with another family so our son could be joined by a similar aged playmate, perhaps just for one or part of the days. This is all TBD based on the comfort level of the caretaker (3 is a lot!) and the ability to find an interested family.

We are still learning and growing as parents but aim for a peaceful parenting approach based on positive connection and communication. We mostly try to use natural consequences for discipline.

Our son is very verbal, focused, sweet, observant and curious. He loves to read books, all things construction, magnet tiles and Duplo. He can get very immersed in his indoor activities but is also content once you get him outside to climb trees and run. Our daughter continues to wake up to the world and is easy going and delightful.

We are conscientious about limiting our risks during covid and would like for you to do the same. We are fortunate to be working from home through at least the end of this year. I will have calls (so many calls!) and at times I’m sure this won’t work out perfectly, but hope to continue nursing and being available to my baby as much as possible throughout the day. Let’s be in good communication so the arrangement feels supportive and respectful for all of us; I understand that working while both parents are home is an unusual arrangement.

Ideally we’d find someone who sees this as a long term commitment, especially since you’ll be developing a relationship with our kids at such critical early years.

Hoping to find a full time nanny/nanny share 4 days a week with a nanny and family who are comfortable practicing social distancing as much as possible during the COVID19 pandemic.

days a week. It would be helpful to have someone who is able to stay overtime when needed. Of course, there will be compensation for this. Also, I will need my son driven to my office during my lunch break for feedings. My office is only about a mile from my home.

We are looking for someone who is reliable, creative and supportive. Second languages and a related college degree are a plus. We prefer someone with at least 5 years related experience with infants and will need a clean background check. This site does not give an option for a salary range. We are looking for someone between $15-25 per hour.

I will be pumping at work, so it will be bottle feeding for the first year with supplementing with solids beginning at 6 months. Meal preparation will be required along these lines. If you could do some light housekeeping throughout the day, that would be helpful. Just cleaning up the messes as they occur basically. We have a cat and some chickens but we will be able to care for them before and after work.

How to Find an Infant Care Job in Portland, OR

If you’re looking for an infant nanny job, you’ve come to the right place! We can help you find an infant care job in your area. Start by telling families about yourself in your profile, and then chat with families to find the right fit. When you think you’ve found the right match, you can turn the discussion towards compensation and responsibilities.

What is an Infant Nanny in Portland, OR

An infant nanny is a nanny that specializes in caring for newborns. They are skilled in diapering and providing care for any rashes, swaddling, bathing, feeding, and burping. Some infant nannies further specialize in care for premature newborns or multiples.

Preparing for a Nanny Interview for an Infant Care Position

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is an infant nanny job interview. Here is a list of some infant nanny interview questions to prepare for:

  • What is your specific experience with this age group?
  • Are you Infant CPR/First Aid certified in Portland, OR? Are you willing to be trained?
  • How do you handle a crying baby?
  • How often do you usually offer parents updates during the day?
  • 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?

You should be prepared with your references for past nanny jobs, and ideally, past infant jobs. Prior to the infant nanny interview, be sure to think about questions that you might have for the family. This is a great time to ask questions about the responsibilities and compensation for the infant nanny position. To make sure everyone has a shared understanding of the role and responsibilities, we recommend asking for a job offer or a nanny contract. By doing this, you can get off on the right foot with your future employer.
