Common Responsibilities of Infant Care in California

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.

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.
