Mother's Helper--tips for finding one

Hello!

 

I am new to this board--and newly pregnant (first trimester). DH and I are really excited about our first baby. This was also the year that I decided to quit my job outside the home and work on developing my piano studio. I was planning to do some classes outside the home, as well, but there have been some road blocks along the way. Then the morning sickness started, and it is on hold for now. But I am still building the in home portion.

When the baby comes, I plan to take 8 weeks off, then hire a sitter or sitters to stay in the room with the baby while I am in the next room teaching. I plan to BF and schedule around feedings. Has anyone made these kinds of arrangements? Do you have any tips?

I know Craigslist gets a bad rap sometimes but it's actually how my friend found her mother's helper. There was a "childcare" section that had ads for both those who were looking for work as one as well as those who were looking to hire one. If you think about it, it's not much different than looking at your local newspaper's classified section. 

Good luck and congrats on your pregnancy!
