- To ensure the nanny share is a successful arrangement for everyone involved, open and clear communication is needed. The nanny must be organized and be able to handle the responsibility of two babies.
- Both moms plan to breastfeed, therefore the nanny must be knowledgeable and comfortable with breastmilk handling, storage and preparation.
- The nanny will be responsible for tidying up after the days’ activities, and washing bottles.

- A schedule and sleep routine is appreciated, although with flexibility; it does not need to be a rigid schedule.
WISH LIST ITEMS (NOT MANDATORY):

DO THE PARENTS WORK FROM HOME: Occasionally one Mom will work from home in her separate office in the basement.
COMFORTABLE WITH A NANNY MOM: Because of the job responsibilities and two small infants, this is not an ideal position for a nanny mom.
