Your baby is already so loved by you, your family, and your loved ones, and that love is only going to grow as he gets older. A special babysitter, nanny, or other caregiver will come into his life and be lucky enough to love him nearly as much as you do. It’s going to be amazing!

If you can believe it, there are even more reasons why Care.com is great for new parents.
Finding the right care takes time
The nanny you ultimately choose is going to be close to your family and become a significant part of your lives, so the right fit is essential. For some parents, it can take months of looking through candidates, conducting interviews, and checking references to find the person they’ll trust with their little one.
Even if you don’t immediately plan to bring in a part-time or full-time nanny, starting to look now means you’ll be able to have that perfect person when you are ready. You won’t be scrambling at the last second or getting frustrated that you can’t find care. For those special date nights, that week when you’re sick, or for when you go back to work, Care.com can help you start meeting qualified caregivers now.
You have a lot to juggle
When your little one arrived, everything in life got more joyful and more complicated. You don’t need anything else to keep track of. With Care.com, you can find all of your potential nannies in one place, and you’ll easily be able to access their profiles, qualifications, references, and your message history with them. You also won’t be posting your job on a general website: everyone looking at your listing will be specifically looking for caregiving jobs.
Instead of keeping track of multiple website postings or sticky notes with random phone numbers, you’ll post your job, respond to candidates, and search through profiles with one simple Care.com login.
You want to get to know your caregiver
This person is going to be handling precious cargo! Your neighbor’s daughter might have some experience babysitting, but a small child requires special attention and care that you’re more likely to find in an experienced nanny. Using Care.com allows you to easily evaluate a caregiver’s experience, certifications, references, and background checks.
You can really get to know them and find out if it’s the right fit for both of you, especially if you’re looking for full-time care. With all your ducks in order and many great candidates to choose from, you won’t feel rushed or need to “settle” for a nanny you’re not totally thrilled about.
With a premium Care.com membership, you can contact unlimited caregivers, screen candidates, read background checks and references, and find the perfect nanny for your family. And because it’s such an important resource for new parents, Ovia users receive 20% off premium memberships with the code OVIA20!
