How to become a nanny?

My wife and I attended the newborn care class last night and had a great learning experience. The instructor was informative and passionate about baby care. We walked away with valuable information including how to swaddle and soothe a crying baby, proper feeding positions, and diapering. Highly recommend it and encourage others to take it earlier in their pregnancy because the instructor offers great advice on what products you need and not need to register for.
