I'm getting a babysitter for my DD and she will be going the person house. My question is where will she sleep? I'm like 95% sure this lady I think I am going to hire does not have a crib at her house.

If she wants to provide childcare like that, she can get a pack and play.

well will you be leaving her there in the future? if so i would invest in one. but i think if you dont know where shes going to sleep obviously you need to ask the babysitter what her plans are. i would have assume before you hired her, you would have planned a sleeping arrangement out

How well do you know this lady? I made the mistake of leaving my daughter in an unregistered child care. It honestly ended up costing more than I would've spent sending her to commercial child care due to the fact that commercial child care provided more than the in home care did.

I have not officially hired her as the babysitter. I meet with her later tonight and then I will decide. I can't really afford a pack n play right now. We are saving for a new place to move to. My grandmother is the one who knows her so I am getting a good deal. It would only be for 2-3 days a week for no more than 7 1/2 hours at a time.

I provide child care from home. I have a cradle but other then that I ask people to provide a pack n play for their child. Nobody has yet to provide one so their infants sleep in their infant seats after I rock them to sleep lol But hey, I told them.

Check Craigslist. You can't leave her all day without a safe place to sleep.

If you're collecting money aren't you supposed to be supplying things to care for their child? That is like a daycare asking a parent to provide a crib for their child to sleep in. Babies shouldn't be sleeping in car seats due to the risk of SIDS.

In home daycare shouldn't be more expensive. Day cares have over head costs to pay more than an in home daycare. I just TERRIBLE experience with the in home cares and have heard from co workers ever worse stories.

When the one parent came and checked my place out. I told her that I would need her to provide a pack n play. She said not to worry about it right now because her last sitter just used his car seat. That was her choice. I've worked at a daycare before and yes, while they provide cribs that's about all they provide up to 18 months. Up to 18 months the parent provides all bottles, food, formula, diapers, wipes etc. I tell them when they interview me what they need to provide. If they still bring their child here when I've told them I don't provide a bed. That's their choice.

Daycares aren't all they're cracked out to be either. I've worked there. They may be all shiny and nice but you never know. I love the babies I watch. I give them lots of love and cuddles and personal care infants do not get at a daycare.
