Over the weekend a friend of mine gave me valuable insight into the challenge families with multiples face - finding the right sitter. She loved her regular sitter, but had to part way when she had her twins earlier this year. Her sitter didn't feel she could adequately care for her infant twin and the other two siblings. I've posted about what other mothers of multiples have said about this challenge on Sitter Pals, and I would love to hear from this community! Please share your experiences and insights.
I like your tip especially! How old are your twins?

I rarely leave my children with anyone. Most people think it is overwhelming. However, as they get older it is much easier to have others care for them. Overall, I think it is best to leave your children with someone that has extensive experience working with a lot of children and someone they are familiar with. Ultimate Tip- As long as the sister has activities, food and not much down time lined-up they will have a blast.
