Find Caregivers
As a typical COVID toddler, our 15 month old son had not been around many other people. And he had never been successfully put down for a nap by anyone besides me... until our sitter came along! Her skillful combination of stories & music managed to get our overtired son to nap. She also has taken the time to soothe us as first-time parents in these unprecedented times and provide us with much appreciated insights into his development.
