Babysitting or Childcare

The focus of this honour is on how to care for a baby during a short absence of one or both parents.  A ‘baby’ is defined as an infant whose age is roughly between 6 months and 2 years.

Because of the many cultures and different legal requirements in the South Pacific Division, the notes are general in nature.

Topics include caring for a baby, preparing the baby’s bottle, bathing a baby, making a baby’s bed, the advantages of breast feeding, weaning a baby and a baby’s fontanel.

Then there’s the practical parts such as interviewing mothers and babysitting babies yourself; a wonderful opportunity to give frazzled parents a break . . . . Coo Coo!
