The ‘3Cs’ to consider when getting a confinement nanny

Article by Cherlynn Ng

During your paktor days, you might have fantasized over the 5Cs of Singapore: Car, cash, condo, credit card and country club membership. But now that you have matured and are settling down to start a family, you are probably thinking of a very different set of Cs: Conceiving, children and confinement nannies.

Well, we have come up with another set of Cs for those who have embarked on another milestone in life: Hiring a professional confinement lady.

1. Cost

Some of the most prominent questions weighing on your mind will probably be budget-related. Will it be too expensive to hire a confinement nanny? Is my money going to well-spent? What exactly am I paying for?

For parents who do not have any word-of-mouth recommendations to rely on, Google is your best friend. Make a list of reputable confinement nanny agencies in Singapore and check out their websites to find out whether their services meet your needs. Feel free to make enquiries about prices so that you can compare them against your budget. Most importantly, read unbiased reviews from parents like yourselves for an accurate picture of their experiences.

2. Chemistry

Not only will a confinement nanny be staying under the roof, she’s also most likely the person you are going to spend most of your time with as you recuperate at home. This makes it all the more important that your confinement lady is someone you can click well with in order to avoid unnecessary tension and clashes at home.

Always meet and interview potential candidates before you commit to anything. Like with any job interview, both parties should communicate their needs and share what they are able to offer. Real-life interaction is also effective in letting you gauge someone’s character and determine if you have good vibes about them.

3. Capabilities

Other essential factors to consider when searching for a professional confinement nanny are her experience, expertise and skills. Everyone has different preferences so make sure you are clear on what you want. Ask questions such as:

  • How many years of experience does she have under her belt?
  • How strict or flexible is she with traditional confinement practices?
  • What household chores can she help with?
  • What kind of confinement meals can she cook?
