I have been babysitting for a while now and love kids! I get clients from my church (I work in the nursery) and would like to know how to deal with infants. Like what supplies do I need? How to feed them? And other helpful hints when deeling with babies. Thanks.

Hey! pack a bag of infant safe stuffed animals, everything else the kids parent should have. To bottle feed an infant, cradle them in your arms, giving their neck and head plenty of support with your hand or shoulder. If they can't hold the bottle yet, hold it for them while they eat. Good luck!

hey im eleven and am to o young to baby sit so i was gunna be a mothers helper. my mom says i should stick flyers in all the mail boxes of all the moms with young children neerby im fraid that would be weird and i think most people need baby sitters and not mother helpers thank you

Hey! It might feel awkward, but it would be a good way to get the word out. I mean you won't know who needs a mother's helper till you get the word out right? Good luck!

my mom wants me to babysit for her friends baby to make me more responsible. I've been around the baby and he hardly ever cries (which is awesome!) and he's uber cute but i'm nervous about changing diapers! my mom says its no big deal but i still really dont want to!!!

Mod! I'm eleven, can I babysit yet? Or do you have to be a certain age? I love to take care of kids, I took care of my 4 year old niece for a week. I'm pretty sure I could handle it!

Hey girl, it's up to the parents but you're a little young right now. Most girls start at 13 or 14.

I'm 11 and want to babysit . how can i get my daddy to say yes. i'm very mature and babysit for my eight year old bro. i'm used to be left alone for up to 6 hours


Hey girl, def continue watching your little bro because that will show your dad your committed to baby sitting. Keep doing chores around the house, and it will slowly but surely build up his confidence.
