We're expecting our first baby in mid-April, and I'll be going back to work and need some kind of care for her in mid-July. I say "some kind of care" because I work from home and am starting to think rather than send her to daycare it might be best to have a nanny/mother's helper care for her in our home from about 10-4 each weekday (so about 30 hours per week). So my question is - does anyone have a nanny or mother's helper, and if so, how did you find them and how much do you pay them? Do you withhold any taxes from their pay, or just pay the total amount due with your own income taxes?
