What Every Babysitter NEEDS TO Know
Babysitting is a very important job, especially with an infant. Babies can’t tell us what they want or need, we have to know. All babysitters should talk about the following safety practices with baby’s parents or guardians.
Naptime and Bedtime
When it’s time for nap or bed, KNOW THE ABC’s of safe sleep:
No Smoking. Even a little bit of smoke is harmful to baby. Never smoke or let anyone smoke in the same house or apartment as baby.
Know How to Call for Help. Have the phone number for baby’s parents or guardians written down and in your phone contacts. No matter what, if something happens that you think is an emergency, call 9-1-1, then call the baby’s parent or guardian.
