How do you find the right nanny or babysitter to look after your little one? Do you network with other mothers, on who they're likely to recommend? Do you go through an agency? Advertise yourself? How do you know when you have found the right nanny or babysitter? Gut instincts? After checking references?

In order of preference:

Friend and family recommendations.
Help wanted sections

With the latter two, checking references is a MUST.
A family friend is a good idea, even a friend of a friends is better than someone you don't know at all. I would only have someone it's credentials. Perhaps go through an agency as you will get someone good with experience.
Ask for recommendations from family and friends is the best way. Because they have been in direct contact with the nanny/babysitter or know people who have.
