New Moms and The Babysitter!

I wanted to get opinions from all of the moms out there on finding a babysitter. Were you nervous the first time you hired one? How did you find them? At what age did you start leaving your little one with someone else?

I am asking because my husband and I have left our baby girl for a total of 10 hours combined, and it’s always been with a family member (she’s almost 7 months). I am absolutely petrified to leave her with someone. She is so little and can’t speak for herself yet, what if she needs me?! Have you moms out there had the same feelings? How did you cope? Please give me your feedback and comment below.
