Babysitter checklist

What's in my Babysitting Bag! (September 2018).

Here is a compilation of the most important information every babysitter should have:

Contact information for you and your partner

Private telephone number, the number you can reach at work, mobile numbers and the telephone number of the place where you will be (restaurant, friends, etc.). Tell your babysitter not to open the front door to someone who is not expected and tell your babysitter if someone wants to come or call you.

Emergency Information

This includes fire department, police, doctor and hospital numbers - compare to our safety checklist. Provide your child's health insurance card, as well as information about special medications if your child needs to take any. It is also advisable to contact some people in the vicinity (neighbors, friends or relatives) and write down their names, addresses and telephone numbers. This allows your babysitter to contact someone directly in case of a mishap such as a power outage or the escape of a pet. Write accurate directions to your home so that even in an emergency your baby-sitter will be able to tell the fire department, the police or the ambulance about where to go.

Layout with Escape Routes

In the event of a fire or other emergency requiring an immediate exit from the apartment, your babysitter must know all possible escape routes from the house. Also, make sure your babysitter knows where the fire extinguisher is, the first-aid box, the power fuse box, the central tap to turn off the water, and a flashlight.

Medical information about your child

If your child has an allergy, has a medical condition or needs to take medication, tell your babysitter in advance. Also tell him if there are health issues such as a nasty diaper rash or if your baby vomits more frequently. Just in case you or a relative can not be reached in an emergency, you should leave a power of attorney to allow your babysitter or the attending physician to make the medically necessary decisions for your child.

List of foods

Leave nothing to chance. Perhaps your babysitter is unaware of what foods your child may be swallowing. Give an exact statement of what your baby is allowed to eat and drink and what is not. If your babysitter prepares bottled food or breast milk that you pump out, make sure your babysitter knows how to do it.

Daily Plan

Your baby will feel most comfortable when it stays in its usual rhythm. Therefore, your babysitter should know at what time your child gets his meals, when does he sleep, and what are the rituals for bedtime. (If you're always reading a particular book to your child, tell the babysitter.)

You can also create and print out a plan that your babysitter will fill out. That way, you can see what and how much your baby ate while away from home, when it had a wet or full diaper, and so on. It is also beneficial if your babysitter knows special terms that are common in your family, such as a favorite toy or prohibited things.
