Should You Start Sharing a Nanny?
By Shareable on January 03, 2012
I never considered a nanny, because unless you have tons of kids, they don't make a ton of sense in a smaller city.

Would it make sense for you to share a nanny with another family? Kathleen discusses the ins and outs of sharing a nanny in this informative post.
What happens on sick days? Most families will agree that fever, vomiting, or diarrhea are all illnesses that should cancel the share for the day. But what about the nanny? Will she care for the sick child? The healthy child? What if the healthy child doesn't live in the home where the care is provided? Families need to be very frank with each other, BEFORE the situation arises, as to how this will be handled.
