Nanny has been bringing her child once a week
Our new nanny is so great and really good with our baby (after going through so many wrong or not so nice ones). We're very happy with the way she loves and cares for our child. However when interviewing she never mentioned she wanted to bring her child along sometimes. Since she started she has been getting her child along, averaging about once a week. It has only been 2.5 weeks that the nanny has started so we don't know if this frequency is going to increase in the future. On one occasion she has asked just before bringing the child, other times she has brought the child and then asked if it's ok (and obviously what can I say in that situation).
We think our baby quite enjoys the company. However, I have myself seen (when I've been at home on such a day) that nanny's attention is definitely divided. Our baby is at an age where he needs to be constantly watched or he will hurt himself or will be putting something into his mouth that he isn't supposed to. Nanny's child is a little older but also needs attention to make sure she isn't up to something she shouldn't be. While I've been home one of those days, I've had to point out to the nanny a few times that my child was about to either trip or hurt himself because he wasn't being watched with all her attention. Yet, I haven't quite been able to point to her the reason for these almost about to happen incidents has been her divided attention.
What would your suggestion to? Broaching this topic can be sensitive, but it still is making me uneasy. And we're definitely paying more than nanny share rates because no concept of any kind of sharing ever came up during the interview.
