Hello - We're looking for an energetic, dependable, and caring person who has experience with infants. Our son Dominic will be just over 6 months in mid-September when we need his care to begin as I will be returning to work. We can guarantee 30 hours a week but will probably need a bit more. Our schedules and days are fairly flexible, but would generally be 8am-6pm when I'm in the office and a little shorter, probably 9am-5pm when I'm working from home. I will work from home a couple days a week, but will be in our office and and unable to care for our son. Dominic - Dominic was born March 21st and is a very happy, healthy, and loving baby. We're lucky that he is a very good sleeper, started sleeping through the night months ago, and also a good eater. He's always smiling and very easy going. He has been exclusively breastfed which I hope to continue to do until he's one year old. Us - My husband, Adam and I have been married three years. We met and lived in San Francisco for two years before buying the house in San Rafael. We're both Bay Area natives enabling us to have some family help in caring for Dominic. Both of us work downtown in the city. We also have a very friendly 2 1/2 year old 30 pound Labradoodle. We joke that she loves Dominic too much and wants to lick him to death. Our House - We live in San Rafael close to the Lincoln Ave. exit. Right up the hill which would hopefully be convenient. Additional Job Info. - When you’re watching Dominic we’ll expect you to provide all care including making his food and picking up after him and yourself. We may ask for some light house cleaning/household tasks - emptying the dishwasher, washing his bottles, changing his sheets, running the laundry once in awhile, getting the mail. We have a housecleaner who comes weekly and would never expect you to clean a bathroom or something like that. Requirements - We will ask for references after interviewing you and conduct a background check before hiring. We’re also thinking it would be best to start with a two week trial to make sure that everything is working out for both you and us. We would like you to be CPR infant certified. We look forward to meeting you!
