I have a big day at work tomorrow and must be in. What do I do? am in a total panic now. CM does not have an alternative minder.
Whereabouts are you?
You could try searching childcare link for childminders near you and having a ring around. Can the CM suggest anyone, even if she doesn't have a formal arrangment with them?
Where in South Beds. Postcode?Am in Hatfield, have a car, could travel to you?
How old is/are your child/children?
How big is big?D you have a partner, can they not take the day off?
no DH works in the city and firm would not be impressed besides DH could not cope all day on his own with DS.DS is only little still and not quite 10mo which makes it a bit harder.
tried childcare link once before but everyone said no and many said they no longer do it but could not get details removed.
dh can't cope with his nearly 10 month old on his own
Did you see my post moocowme. Would somebody coming to you for the day be an option?
Have you tried herehttp://www.emergencychildcare.co.uk/index/index.php
no DHis not really good in a crisis. he can do it for an hour or two but a whole day would be too much for him as he does not have the patients of a women.nbee that could be a possibility
tried emergency child care before as well and they were a bit out of date. registration fee was a bit ofputing but found a way round it in the end.
Your dh should be able to cope for one day - ditto his firm. I know that's not helpful but it's how I feel.Ermm, any friends, family etc nearish? (I'm sure you've thought of that!) Any nanny agency type places near you?
I am actually a Nanny that works Mon-Weds, but have also been a childminder previously (between 1996 and 2006). Have 2 children of my own (19, 14) and over 20 years experience - much of that with babies.Whereabouts are you?
I am a maternity consultant that used to nanny and maternity nurse and am free tomorrow is that of any help, not as cheap as childminder though.
dh woud not cope for a day?well fuck me
i don't have a single relation in this hemishere. all my friends are a bit older really and not sure they would cope for the whole day with a lo as he is a bit demanding.
Could DH have him for the morning and a friend for the afternoon then neither of them having to cope for the whole day!
moocow is really jumping at two people's offers to help out
Where are you in South Beds? Off the A1? I have the number (somewhere) of a couple of registered CMs in that area, not sure if they have spaces but worth a shot.
My email is surreynanny at hotmail dot co dot uk if I can be of any help.
Indeedy pointydogMoocowme, most 10 month old babies are demanding. Ask, or rather tell dp take a day's leave
Pointy - I think she's waiting for the bidding to come down.
