    Turning on the TV more than you’d like= meh, whatever.

    Letting a strange man into your house= dealbreaker.

    downonmulberry :  I agree with you, the age is not the problem here.

    There are teenagers perfectly capable of babysitting. At 21 I was in midwifery school and attending births and caring for preemies in NICUs for God’s sake. And she couldn’t even FEED a baby for five hours? That’s lack of common sense, not even maturity.

    pinkglasses :  This girl sounds like a straight potato.

     

    OP stand your ground. “Give her a second chance” – NO. THERE ARE NO SECOND CHANCES. If she can’t get a feeding schedule right, how long until she microwaves  his bottle or leaves him unattended at the changing table? Will she stop picking him up by the arms when he starts crying or when she hears a skin-curtling ‘pop’ and his shoulders are forcefully removed from their sockets? NONONONONO

     

    There are no second chances with safety. My mother is a nurse and she’s told me a heartbreaking story a few times. A mother of 4 left her children home alone, the elementary school child was watching a slightly younger child, a toddler, and a baby (fuck no #1). I guess the stove was on or something, because the house caught fire. The oldest and the two middle children made it out safely but they forgot about the baby, who was laying in his crib covered in blankets (fuck no #2). When the fire reached the master bedroom, the blankets and crib mattress cooked this baby alive. He came into a Pediatric Burn Unit with 3rd and 4th degree burns across his entire body. When the hospital staff finally reached the mother, she was too emotionally distraught to visit her baby.

    So my mother held this horrifically burned baby in her arms as he died a slow, painful death, alone, because the mother left him in the care of someone who could not protect him.

     

    When you consider worst case scenarios, do you trust this woman with your baby’s LIFE? Because I wouldn’t. I would bet money that she cannot function in an emergency, because she can’t even read a clock.

    There are no second chances and fuck your husband’s opinion, you are the mother and if you are not 100% comfortable with the situation, it doesn’t happen.

    My mom’s favorite saying is “sorry doesn’t bring back the dead”.

    This wouldn’t even be a question for me. The first time I saw her carry my kid by her arms she would have been done.

    At 21 I had a degree in child development and had worked at a daycare for 3 years… this isn’t about age. She’s stupid and doesn’t give a flying flip. She needs to be gone. Let your husband read this post.

    livster :  i think you meant to copy another bee. I’m with you though! Camera or no camera, nanny should have been properly doing her job.

    lilceeja124 :  your husband needs to be informed of all she’s done wrong asap….

    But I would have fired her without my husband’s permission. Nobody would be able to convince me to just let this all go. Sorry. Time to be a mama bear for your baby, OP.

    I wouldn’t give a shit what my husband says, she’s fired.

    I mean the VERY FIRST DAY she’s alone she’s doing all this? Just imagine what she’d try to pull once she got more comfortable. Red flags abound.

    And there are plenty of young women working at my dd’s daycare and they are all loving and careful caregivers. I don’t think age is an excuse; this girl is just a bad nanny.

    100% this. I would have left work and went home and kicked her out. But I’m also crazy protective so there is that. chocolateplease :
