A little bit about us…

Nursing student at Palos Hospital, recently got back to work after staying at home with Valentina. Valentina just made one in February, very energetic and loves to play. I need a nanny for Wednesday from 7:30AM to 3:00PM and every third Friday from 7:30AM to 3:00PM. Would just need help with meal prepping for Valentina, light house work (cleaning up after Valentina), keeping dishes clean, maybe help with dinner.

A little bit about us…

My name is Hailey and I am a young mother to a sweet six month old baby girl. My husband travels for work and I work 12 hour third shifts (7pm -7:30am) so that I’m able to stay home during the day with the baby. I’m looking for someone to help out and stay with baby overnight while I work. The schedule is part time and not consistent but we have our work schedules six months out in advance so we would be able to provide the exact days and times needed six months out at a time. Baby girl is a fantastic sleeper and has been gently sleep trained so she sleeps from 7pm - 6am with one wake around 11-12 for a quick change/bottle and and right back to bed!
