Would you leave your baby with a babysitter from a babysitters agency?
My fiancee and I have no family or friends where we live and therefore we don't have the luxury of having a family member or someone we know and trust to look after our baby for a few hours so that we can spend some quality time together.
We have been nowhere alone together since our daughter was born 3 months ago and I really feel that we need some time alone to go out to the movies and have dinner.
I don't have any contacts where I live and don't really know the neighbours very well so I can't really ask any of them. The only people I know are other mums from a parents group but they are all busy with their own babies so cannot ask anyone there either....
What do I do?? I thought about contacting a Babysitter/Nanny Agency to see if I could organise a babysitter to sit for us maybe one evening a month so at least we can get out together but I am a little frightened to be honest. These people may have Police Checks and credentials but behind all of that they could be a mental psycho for all I know.....what if they abuse my daughter behind doors and I have no way of knowing or am I just over reacting???
