This family are seeking a nanny 5 days per week to care for their adorable 2 year old boy. The boy was born with a rare chromosome disorder and has a physical disability and is developmentally delayed. He has low muscle tone and is unable to sit unassisted so will require a nanny who is comfortable sitting or lying on the floor for extended periods of the day. He is generally very social, happy and playful and loves music, stories and investigating toys and other fun objects. Due to his low muscle tone he is unable to eat unassisted and will require to be fed with a bottle 2-3 times during the day along with 2 spoon fed meals. His feeds can be time-consuming due to the time that he takes to eat.  He still requires to be wrapped and rocked to sleep once per day at around 11 am. Although boy will be almost 2 years old when we wish a new nanny to start he will essentially have the requirements of a 1 year old infant. Overall however, he has a sunny, happy and outgoing disposition and will enjoy the company of whoever is with him. This position would suit an experienced and engaging nanny that is ok with a lot of lifting of 2 year old boy and happy to be patient and interactive. While this position is initially a 6 month position, it is very likely to extend if all goes well.
