4 things to help you select your dream confinement nanny
Article by Cherlynn Ng
Trying to hire your ideal confinement lady can be a nerve-wrecking process when there is so much to consider and you don’t know where to start. You want to select the very best while being cost-efficient, but there are so many choices out there. Fret not, we have come up with this guide that will help to simplify the process!
Always do research before making a commitment. Ask yourself what are your needs and prioritise them accordingly. Some common questions are:
- Are you looking for a part-time or full-time confinement nanny?
- Do you prefer a freelance nanny or to go through a confinement agency?
- What skills must the confinement nanny possess and in what order?
- What do you need help with e.g. baby care, household chores, confinement meals?
- Do you want someone older or younger?
After coming up with these questions, read up on what are the differences or pros and cons for each selection. For instance, a freelance confinement nanny might be cheaper but going through an agency gives you additional perks and added peace of mind. Meanwhile, a younger confinement nanny will be more mobile and have no problems with heavy chores or climbing stairs, but an older confinement lady has a generous wealth of experience on hand.
Reviews from people who have previously used the same agency or nanny can help to make or break a decision. They are able to share timely and accurate information about their own experiences, whether good or bad. You can easily look for these reviews with a click of your mouse; on blogs, motherhood forums, Facebook groups and more. If you already have a few confinement agencies in mind, look them up on Google and Facebook for a comparison. Even better, try asking people you personally know for trusted recommendations.
The next step would be to visit events such as roadshows and baby fairs to find out more about confinement services being offered. Gather brochures for an overview of prices, ongoing promotions and other guidelines. You may even be able to enjoy special discounts and extra goodies for signing up on the spot! This is also a good way of scoping out potential confinement agencies in person and getting a feel of their vibe.
Last but not least, conduct interviews with potential candidates who you have shortlisted. Keep communication open by asking questions, clarifying any doubts and making your expectations clear. This stage is crucial as not only do you get to know your confinement nanny, it’s also a way of establishing whether you can connect — and ultimately work — with each other.
