of coz not, a maid is an outsider, unrelated to you at all....will she care and love your baby as much as compared to your parents or parents in law??? Nannies and Infantcare centres are paid to look after babies for you so its more of responsibility then love and care.
So maids are not trusted....still needs supervision, no matter how good they are.
But there are pple who left their newborns to their maid alone....my neighbour (at least i think so) does that. And you know what?? They left the baby entirely in the maid's care until like no one's business...and i think the baby will think the mother is the maid instead of the natural mother ....i think! LOLs
it depends on your luck whether you are able to get a really good one...but chances are slim...hard to find a really good one.
having said that, hope it wil help you to make an informed decision if you r looking for one. If you r checking for information only, my opinion is a NO.
