What can I do next?

She is amazing. We used her after our daughters birth 4 years ago. She came highly recommend from many of my husbands co-workers.
She stayed with us for 10 days and helped get out daughter on a great routine. Good luck!

y name is A.. I am 20 years old and a student at Santa Monica College. I am currently fulfilling my GE requirements before I transfer to UCLA to study either Child Development or Nursing. Currently training to become a Newborn Care Specialist and looking to do an internship at a discounted rate. I have worked with infants before and have experience, however I need to work with a couple more families to receive my certification. I absolutely love children and have spent 7 years caring for them, both as a babysitter and a nanny. I am now trying to pursue a career in infant care. Please let me know if you're in need of infant care help!
