About this nanny job

We are looking for someone to care for our baby girl, June when we go back to work (from home) after leave. My leave ends beginning of December and my husband's leave will end mid-January, however, we are open to full time care starting December but have flexibility to start earlier or later (as late as January). We would like the caregiver to feed June, play with her when needed and make sure she receives regular naps. We don't have a structure per se, but we do expect the caregiver to learn our baby's sleep and hunger queues. Right now, most of her diet is breast milk via nursing and bottle. The caregiver should have some knowledge of handling breast milk (including sanitizing bottles) and giving bottles, but also have knowledge of infant solid consumption. We will prepare pureed foods, but are open to paying more of a caregiver that is willing to prepare food as well. We will have a regular housekeeper but it would be helpful if the caregiver could do some light housework such as loading/unloading dishwasher and cleaning bottles during naps. We would hope in the long run that the caregiver can help us introduce June to other peers. We also enjoy reading to June and expect the caregiver to be proficient in reading, writing and speaking English - other languages are a plus but not required! Caregiver will have access to family car if needed. We are open to paying more per hour. We can also pay vacation & holidays and some med expenses. About us: My husband, Radu (40) is a mathematician by training, born and raised in Romania, but has been "stateside" for over 20 years. I (Susannah, 37) am an in house attorney for a solar development company, born and raised in southern California. We are both only children. We have been together for over 14 years and this is our first and only child. June is a very mellow and loving baby. We have moved twice and taken two vacations since she was born and she handled both events with little fuss. She enjoys independent play, but she also needs affection and interaction with others. She does not appear to exhibit a lot of stranger danger and enjoys being held by others. Since we are first time parents, we are open to caregiver opinions and suggestions. We live in a 5 bedroom house (2 bedrooms are used for office purposes), a 10 minute walk from downtown Menlo Park about 7 minutes from the MP train station. We have a large backyard and an in law unit that will be occupied by grandparents from time to time.
