How a Nanny Can Fit Into Your Growing Family

Parenthood is hectic and busy! When you add in your children’s various interests, it might seem like you don’t know which way is up or that you are always rushing from one place to the next. You might be driving across town every day to different appointments or activities and it might feel like you simply don’t have time to fit everything in. If you work outside of the home, things might feel especially chaotic!

When things feel like they are getting a little bit out of balance, or you are starting to neglect time for yourself or spending quality time with your family, it might be time to come up with a plan that can lighten the load. Hiring a nanny is one of the best options, and it’s one that families around the country turn to. This is especially the case if you plan to grow your family or will be welcoming a new baby into your home soon. Nannies can make your family even stronger. Here’s how.

Nannies offer critical attention and love in your absence.

Daycare centers are often crowded and multiple children need attention all at once. Because of this, your child might not get the individualized attention and care that is needed. Having an in-home nanny means your child gets the personalized and attentive care that they need. When children experience this love and care while you’re away, it helps fill their bucket, and they’re more likely to share that love with others. The result: a world that is more compassionate.

Nannies can step in to help the entire family.

While a nanny’s primary job is to care for the children, a great nanny steps in to help the whole family when needed. Maybe it’s throwing an extra load of laundry into the washer, offering to run to the grocery store when you’re running late from work, or helping prepare dinner ingredients while you’re stuck in traffic. Nannies are able to bring balance and lighten the load, so your home runs smoothly.

Nannies introduce children to new outlooks in life.

Your nanny has a story – a unique background, culture, or passions. Keeping your children surrounded by people that introduce them to new perspectives and different life experiences is one of the best ways you can raise children that are well-rounded, interested in the world, and aware of others.

Nannies can make a lifelong, positive impact.

Nannies are in charge of what might feel like an endless cycle of small tasks – changing diapers, preparing bottles, or shuttling kids to and from activities. But, when you look at the big picture, these small tasks really end up being big tasks. Why? Because even in those small moments, your nanny is connecting with your child and building a relationship. This helps create a nurturing environment of trust between your nanny and children and this can be built upon as they get older. When there is trust, your children can feel free to express themselves, ask questions, and learn. As the kids grow up, this has a monumental impact on them. They will feel like they have another adult, other than their parents, in their corner – cheering them on, advocating for them, and encouraging them to discover who they are.

For many families, their nanny becomes an integral part of their family. Even after the children grow up and nanny services aren’t needed anymore, some nannies stay in touch with the family by attending holiday parties or family dinners or corresponds with letters or e-mails. When you find the right nanny-family match, there is a special bond that can form that can last years – or even a lifetime.
