I remember the first time I left my baby with a babysitter. It was terrifying. Not necessarily for me (I was so ready for it), but I was worried that the babysitter would be stuck with a crying baby for 3+ hours.
So, I made a cheat sheet with Andersen’s favorite toys, secrets for calming her down, and all the other important information.
Just put yourself in the babysitter’s shoes. How would you feel watching after a new baby, not knowing any of the tips and tricks specific to the child since each one is different, and then having to try and remember everything the parents tell you before they leave. I’ll be honest and say I’d probably be overwhelmed.
Here’s my cheat sheet (which I actually modeled after a friend’s):
^^^This is the PDF you can download and use for reference.
I know you’ll ask, so here are the links to the products I mentioned in the babysitter cheat sheet. 😘
Also, a bunch of the information you provide on this sheet can also be used when making a Smart911 account. If you have a family, I HIGHLY recommend doing this. It’s fast, easy, and can make a huge difference in emergencies.
If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below and I’d be happy to help!
