Has anyone ever shared childcare with a sibling or friend?

And if so, how did it work out?

The shared childcare I mean is if for example, two mothers decide to drop full time hours to work part time. One works mon-wed, the other works wed-fri. They look after each other's kids when they each have their days off work, then on the one day that they both work the grandparents look after the kids.

Has anyone done this or something similar, and did it work out well? Would you recommend? Or can you give me an idea of reasons why you think it wouldn't work or wouldn't want to do it yourself?

I appreciate your feedback.

Cheers 😊

Great question. I wonder if anyone has had this arrangement.

Legally it is possible to do in the UK. Legislation is here:

The legislation got added following the case of the two police women in 2009. news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8277378.stm
