I'm a FTM to my 16-month old son. I went back to work when my baby was 4 months old, but I was very lucky to have my parents/his parents to care for the baby untill now. My son is EBF, I continue to breastfeed, we co-sleep, he shares meals with us, we have ec'ed him since 3 months old etc. in essence, we practice attachment parenting.
DH and I have spent some time looking for and interviewing nannies. We are having a hard time finding some one who understands not letting my son CIO or elimination communication to help my son relieve himself. We do live in a fairly mainstream neighborhood (Santa Clara in South Bay). So, where do you look for nannies who are attachment parenting friendly?
My experience has also been that some nannies tell you what you want to hear in an interview, but then turn around and do things their way on landing the job. What type of questions do you ask to get a feel for their care-giving style?
