I am planning to go back to work soon and I have a seven month old baby. The nurseries in my area are not great so thinking about getting a childminder. What should I look out for in a good one? How do I know she is right?

Gut instinct is always something you should go on. Make sure the childminder is registered with your local authorities and check out references.

You should be able to get a list from your local council of registered ones.

I agree that you can't really beat gut instinct, but you could also ask around - do you know any other mothers who can recommend a childminder who is known to them?
