Hi there.. Welcome~~
I never dare to employ a maid coz of sooo many horrible news about maids ill-treating newborns and no one is around to see to her.
At nite, both my kids since newborn have been sleeping on the baby cot. I bought those cots that can be transformed into toddler bed so until 4yr old, my dear daughter can still sleep in it comfortably. Depends on the size of cot you r buying..
Who is gonna feed the newborn his/her nitefeeds? Think by law, maids are supposed to sleep in the nite to rest. But some maids can help you out with the nite feeds too. Is the baby gonna sleep in your room or w the maid? If in your room, can she wake up & come into your room to feed?
