I have been babysitting my siblings since I was 8 and other families since I was about 10. I nannied one child for two summers, about 4 days a week when I was 16. I have extensive experience watching infants (the youngest being 1 month old) overnight and for long periods of time. I am willing to watch toddlers, though I prefer older children and very young infants.
