Printable: Daily chart for nannies

accreditation

You're going back to work and you're slightly freaking out. Make that a lot. How can you leave your baby behind? Are you the world's worst mother? Will the new nanny know that the specific look on baby's face means she wants feeding? Will baby even take a bottle?

As hard as it is for you now, as hard it's been on most other working moms. The first few days are super tough, but you're going to find your new normal and, we promise, your baby won't hate you.

To make connecting with your baby's new nanny easier, print out this "Notes from the Nanny" sheet. Eventually you can replace the printables with a notebook your nanny can write in. 

Things to log include your baby's feeding and nap times, which fun activities they did, and anything out of the ordinary. Not only does it improve communication and help you to plan the evening, it also serves as a beautiful journal one day when you look back, unbelievingly, at the days your baby still needed to be burped.
