Attention breastfeeding moms! Are you planning to return to work soon? Feeling overwhelmed? Need daily support while you continue breastfeeding? Want help establishing routines with your baby? Go Au Pair wants to help support you too! Be sure to inform your au pair of your choice to breastfeed, as well as the importance of timing feedings with your time home in order to keep up your milk supply. Au pairs can be an invaluable partner in the parenting process, even if you are pumping at work.
Be sure to keep the lines of communication open with your au pair so that he or she knows your schedule, when you will be home to nurse, when you will need pumped milk or formula to be given, and so forth. Keeping a notebook each day can be helpful to keep track of feeding, naps and toileting. Like your local chapter of LaLeche League, your au pair can support you when you need it most, when you are tired and easily emotional. You might consider taking your au pair with you, if you attend chapter meetings, or even join local groups like RI Nursing Moms Network on Facebook or Meetup group Northern RI Moms.
An au pair can help baby-proof the house, while helping you provide a safe, healthy environment for your infant (not less than 3 months) & older children, all for one price! She can even help do kids’ laundry, light meal preparation & clean-up so you can read that bedtime story! How about just a little extra coverage so you can shop, go to the gym, or on a date night without the baby along?
An infant-qualified Au Pair from Go Au Pair has at least 200 hours of documented experience caring for non-family-member children under age two. At least 50% of our au pairs have more than the minimum, some with thousands of hours of experience! Au Pairs from Go Au Pair stand out, since they get infant & toddler-specific safety training, and there is no extra charge for being infant qualified or caring for more than one child!
That’s right! If you have older kids, ALL your kids are one price, less than $7.55 per hour for 45 hours of childcare (not more than 10 hours per day), flexible around YOUR schedule & YOUR needs! Do you need flexible, caring & culturally enhancing child care? Part time options available.
You do need an extra bedroom, since it is a live-in program. Most au pairs stay at least one year, creating consistency for you and your baby. Au pairs have the option to extend for 6, 9 or 12 months after successfully completing his or her first year of service. He or she could still be around in a year when you need help with potty training, discipline and bedtime routines!
Parents get built-in consistency & coverage, allowing time to focus on just one kid, help with homework, or attend that recital while the au pair can assist with kids’ laundry & light meal prep/clean-up. Even the youngest of kids benefit from foreign language introduction & exposure, making them overall more creative & happy.
