The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone who has infant experience with this age group and is CPR certified. Someone who is more relaxed as the baby tends to get over stimulated easily. Someone communicative and open. Someone proactive and who is mindful to her needs, especially if mom and dad aren't there. Being able to discern what the baby needs or being comfortable communicating with mom and dad. Someone who can take charge, though connect with the family.

About the Children
baby girl, 6 weeks- She is a pretty easy baby. She gets a bit fussy some times and has a bit of stomach issues. She only really gets fussy if she has gas. They occasionally give her a supplement to alleviate gad before she eats.
Taking care of the baby while mom is teaching that evening. She is cluster feeding and they are flexible with the schedule. Mom pumps and she breastfeeds so they make sure there is enough for the baby. She take probiotics and supplements with her meals, though mom will likely take care of it before they feed her. There is a lot of holding her and moving around, burping her. She is in a phase where she really wants to be held and soothed.
They are thinking about installing some, but only because the dog has been acting out since the baby came. The dog has been eating stuff she isn't supposed to be. Otherwise, we have baby monitors in the baby's room.
as long as you can! They are flexible.
