I am currently on mat leave with our 2nd child and we are anticipating the arrival of our first live-in nanny. Has anyone else gone through a similar situation?

i think you can ask whether she want to join your family during her off-day or not,give her options.i did give options to my nanny,and surprised she rather join us than having a day off or going home.

yes she is from another country,i include her in every occasion including our family gathering so that she will feel like family member too and she really like it (though she was a bit shy at first).i never treat her like nanny but as a sister who help me in taking care of my son and do the house chores.we even celebrate her bday!i hope you will get along with your nanny,keep in touch ok :-)

hi, thanks for your reply. Did she come from another country? My nanny is coming from a different country and I want her to feel welcome and part of our family. Did you include your nanny in activities over the weekend or evenings when she is supposed to be "off shift"?
