A little bit about us…

We're first time parents to our sweet little baby boy and are looking for the extra set of hands helping us throughout the day. Ideally, you have 3+ years experience with an infant, be CPR/First aid certified, and enjoy being active/doing a lot of activities with a baby. Our baby boy is sweet, curious, always happy, and smiles a lot. We're currently sleep training him, so we have implemented a daily schedule for him that specifies times for napping, feeding and activities such as walks, reading books, playing with toys, singing, dancing, tummy-& rolling-over time. No screen or TV time allowed. Some light housekeeping pertaining to the baby is required. Ideally, you are also occasionally available on evenings and weekends but not required.

My wife and I had our miracle baby in October and are going back to work in February. I work Thursday Friday and Saturday and every other Wednesday 7am-7pm. My wife works 6-430 Monday through Thursday so one week we will need just Thursday and the next both Wednesday and Thursday. We do have two dogs and two cats in the house so you would have to be good with that.
