Her timing was oh so perfect, as we just started leaving Cooper with a sitter. Then, my in-laws were here, and even though I trust them, it is so nice to be able to give them all the particulars about my little man, without talking for hours.
This book covers all the basis. Basics, including routine, foods and favs, emergency info, medical info, a section for babysitters to take notes, and parents to keep all the sitter info. There are things that I have never thought about leaving for a sitter, but they just make so much sense! All you have to do is fill in the blanks on the pages that look like this.
The book is available as a hardcover book, or an e-book. I got the e-book version. It is a 100 page book, split into 5 sections, that I got in Google Documents. I just had to print off what I wanted, and put it into a cute binder. I never have to scribble a list of things down on Hannah Montana paper and leave it for the sitter again. I bought the paper for the hubs as a joke and I am the one embarrassingly using it.
I am a bit of a perfectionist. This book is great so when something changes, I can just print or purchase a new page instead of scratching stuff out. Cooper turns 2 and starts eating peanuts? New page. New emergency contact digits? New page. New bedtime? New page! Get it?
This book is PERFECT if you use a sitter, have family or friends keep your kids, or lets face it, for your forgetful husband. Last night my hubby put Cooper down and “forgot” to change his diaper, brush his teeth or wash his face. Should have left the book out for him!
So all you need to do it go check this book out!
