Am I the only nutter who does overnight care???? I know loads of childminders around here, but I am the only one who does overnight care! I had a little girl (5months) who was dropped off at 9.30am on Monday and she doesn't go home till 1.30 on Thursday! Bless here, she is asleep now as she has been up a lot in the night..........she isn't a great sleeper! Wow I am tired, and the next one arrives at 9!!! Then one more to pick up at 12.15!!
No point to this really!

SSD - her mum is very sick still from having her, and her health visitor begged me to help so I did.......she is such a sweetie!
Jelly Jelly - I can only have her for a max of 14 days/nights as she is still so little and needs to be with her mum for as much as mum can manage.
But mum is doing much better and they had a good weekend with no problems.........will be sad in some ways when mum is better as I won't have her any more!

Jeez,what sort of a family allows a child to go to a stranger's house (although I'm sure you're lovely Booh) for that long???????
Where are her dp,parents,and siblings???
My aunt was asked to look after a child of a similar age for a few weeks back in the 60s when she lived in Africa (was a nurse for prem. babies).
The family were going to Germany for something.
They returned three months later.

Can I just say again....
THAT THE BABY I CARE FOR OVER NIGHT HER MUM IS VERY VERY SICK
Other wise I wouldn't even entertain teh idea of looking after such a tiny baby for such a long time.
Dad has to work to keep their business going, and mum is in and out of hospital. Each week mum and baby spend more time together and the long term goal is to get mum and baby together full time..........but with help.
