Travel Nannies Help with many things
Caring for the children
Your traveling nanny will care for your children day and night. Late dinners with friends or clients, your nanny will be with your child until you have released them to do otherwise. Whether its a vacation or you are traveling for work, your nanny will keep your child happy, engaged in learning and fun, fed, and making sure naps and bedtime are on a schedule.
Household duties of a Traveling Nanny
Your nanny will do anything child related. Child’s laundry, dishes, clean up the play area, washing sheets, sterilizing bottles, and taking diaper pale out to trash. Most nannies are more than willing to do other light household chores. Discuss with your nanny ahead of time to have a clear understanding of what is expected from your nanny.
You are either busy playing, or working on your traveling adventure. No need to worry. Your nanny will keep track when diapers are running low or milk needs to be picked up. Your nanny will do light grocery shopping and help keep everything stocked for your child to thrive and stay healthy. Most parents provide a credit card or cash for the nanny to spend on play dates, milk, or other miscellaneous items the home or child may need. Please keep in mind you will have to pay for the transportation for your nanny and the children to take a cab, bus or subway to activities or store.
Paying your Nanny while traveling
Every nanny will be different but majority of traveling nannies have a similar request as follows:
Paying for the travel of the nanny (plane ticket, baggage fees, cabs, etc.)
Hotel room. Discuss with your nanny before you travel what the room situation will be. Nannies will request to have their own room. If you are in a house or a hotel, keep your nannies privacy a priority. Traveling many days with a family can be draining and they need down time as well.
If you are leaving your child with the nanny for the night your nanny will request half the pay while sleeping. For example: If you pay your nanny $18 hourly, $9 hourly is expected while she is watching over them while sleeping. If your baby wakes in the middle of the night, it will either be the full $18 or may be more for newborn or sleep training infants.
You will be expected to pay for the hours of travel. If its a 3 hour flight expect to pay for the hourly rate of 3 hours and give or take an hour at the airport. If she is helping get you on the plane, and playing with kiddos, she is working.
Things to keep in mind
Traveling is tiring in itself, add kiddos and unpacking, activities, etc. It adds up. Some parents and kids get cranky when traveling. Your nanny is trying their best to keep everyone happy. Please make sure your nanny does get a couple hours to themselves to sightsee or relax as well.
Nannies become family in most cases. If the family is going out to dinner and you want the nanny to join, invite them out. They may love to be included or maybe they want to relax. If its a non work outing, don’t expect to pay, but make sure you and the nanny are on the same page.
Expect to pay for your nannies food, unless otherwise discussed. If your nanny has a special diet they entertain, most nannies would be happy to shop for themselves if they can get their hands on food they enjoy. Eating out with the kids, dinners with the family (while working), groceries should all be paid for by the parents. If you want to give a $20 allowance for food, discuss with your nanny.

The hardest part about traveling with an infant or child is the fear of others being upset they may have to listen to a screaming kid the whole flight. Not knowing if your babies ears hurt. How do we ease our minds when traveling with a kid? We take a few important steps.
Surprisingly some kids do shockingly well. It can be exciting for a child. Its new, its fun, its distracting, and its a lot of attention from strangers.
Airlines allow families to board first. Get on the flight early and get snacks, milk, books, coloring books out to have ready when your child needs some distractions.
Time the flight around nap time.
Be sure to do all the same cues you use for nap time at home. Blanket, sound machine (headphones), warm milk, read a book. Whatever your routine is at home, try to mimic it on the plane.
Wear your baby on the plane.
If your infant is small enough to wear on the plane, it is advised to do so. If your child is older they have rolling, traveling car seats you can push or pull the child in. Strollers can be taken to the end of the gate as well.
Give nearby passengers goodie bags.
Pinterest has cute ideas on giving little goodie bags with ear plugs, candy and a little note apologizing if the kids are loud. If your kid(s) are old enough have them pass them out to a few people around them. This reminds the passengers how cute your kids are and that they are in fact children.
Carseats are considered “damaged”
after one use of travel. This is only if you check the car seat. You may want to look into renting a carseat if you are renting a vehicle. Lugging around a carseat can be a lot of work. If you can rent or use a family members, do so.
Toys, books, movies and food.
Make sure you have plenty of toys, movies, books and food for your little one. Distraction is key. Don’t forget their favorite blanket. Headphones can be helpful with noises. Make sure baby drinks while airplane is taking off and landing. This will help his hers pop.
