Bilingual Babycare Guides

Does your baby speak more languages than you? Your child may be growing up in a bilingual househould whether you intended it or not if your nanny or babysitter speaks a language different than yours. Bilingual Babycare Guides, available in English/Spanish and English/French are a tool for helping you communicate with your child's caregiver. Essentially they're phrase books that focuse on words relevant to childcare: sleeping, eating, health, safety, etc.

It would seem that these guides might best be used in conjunction with a full dictionary, but these should help you find some common language ground. The guides costs $16 and can be purchased here.

Have language barriers with your child's caregiver been an issue for you? What solutions have you found?
