:boggled: I am a medical student who is expecting a baby in two months. When she is two months old, I will start my fourth year of med school. When she is 1 year old, I will start residency. This baby will be our first child…and I’m not too familiar with all the pros and cons of various types of child care. What are my options for child care during that grueling first year of residency? A nanny? Multiple baby-sitters? My husband is military and will be working every fifth night (on top of M-F). I will probably be on call every fifth night for the majority of that year. We have no family nearby. I really need some good advice about various child care options. What has worked for you?
