Okay, so we live in Iowa. My husband and I have a wedding to go to in new haven at the end of April. We also have four children, my sister has agreed to watch the older three for a week, but she does not want to take the baby. He is 11 mths right now and still nursing, although he prefers a cup during the day and sleeps through the night. We would like to spend some time in new York and possibly go to a few shows. My dilemma is that if we take the baby with us, the only way we would be ale to see a show is if the hotel has some sort of sitter service. My oldest is seven, and I have never left my kids with someone other than family. I could possibly ask my mom to take the baby for the week, but I don't really want to separate them unless we takethebaby with us. Have any of you ever used a sitter service from a hotel? What was your experience like?
When it was night and I had to put them to bed, it was easy and I was right there with them in the room so I think they felt fine since they weren't alone even though it was a strange place.
I haven't ever used a hotel sitting service, so I can't offer any feedback on that. I too am one that only left mine with family for a long time, and from there transitioned to a teenaged neighbor. I would never be able to enjoy myself on an outing leaving mine with a stranger. As an alternative, perhaps someone from the wedding could recommend a sitter. There's a pretty good chance that someone from NYC will be coming to the wedding. Perhaps some legwork in advance would leave you feeling more confident?
