When Moms Go Back to Work

I heard on the news the other day that more moms are working throughout their pregnancies and going back to work after the birth of their babies much sooner than they were 40 years ago. In fact, the number of first time moms going back to work within a year of giving birth has nearly quadrupled in that time. That means more and more moms are leaving their newborns in the care of a babysitter.

Finding a good babysitter can make going back to work a little easier. You want to leave your child with someone you can trust and feel comfortable with. AuPairCare offers their Infant Specialized Care Program that provides families of infants with au pairs fully trained in infant safety and caregiving and infant stimulation and development. These au pairs have at least 400 hours of child care experience, as well as being certified in infant CPR and first aid. They also engage the baby in learning activities and teach the baby sign language. Part of their job is to communicate with the parents about baby caregiving, and I'd think that would be a great help for first time parents. Most of us just learned as we went along. We didn't have a fully trained professional there.
