Nannysharing is where two families share a nanny. Good for all parties; it is more reasonable for the families and gives the nanny a greater return, plus the children have the social interaction that they may not have had otherwise.
Male nannies (Mannies)
Trained or not, male nannies can be great; particularly if yours is an all boy family who want to play football constantly.
Will come in and do the night shift with your baby or child, giving you a break. Night nannies can also cover when both parents are away/work at night.
