I would ask your friend to contact local nanny agencies to her or ask the venue if they can recommend anyone
Assuming anyone she knows or trusts would be at the wedding
Or google agencies near her and email them and explain what you want
Sorry to hear doing preg alone. That must be hard
PS. I am a single parent, so no partner to help out. I realise it's really far in advance but I'd like to start thinking about it now!
My friend is getting married in her home state of California next May. I will have an 8 month old by then (if all is well). Aside from mine, children aren't actually allowed, so there's no childcare there. The ceremony etc starts at 5pm.
I lost my first to SIDS and don't really want to leave the baby with any of the bride's teenage relatives, etc, so I'd like to get a professional – someone versed in CPR/First Aid, and all that business. I was hoping to be able to have them come to the wedding with me and be there throughout the night/evening to keep an eye on baby until we leave.
How do I go about finding a babysitter abroad?
