If your nanny takes care of one baby boy who is twixt 8 months and 14 months, I think you should investigate your nanny's activities at the mall. I saw the nanny behaving suspiciously at Charlotte Russe, but didn't think much of it. My gut told me she was shoplifting. But, it would be normal for a mom or nanny to go in and out of the stroller and diaper bag. I saw the nanny again at Macy's and she was definitely maneuvering something underneath the child. She looked to be putting clothing directly under the child.
I was not able to recognize the brand of the stroller, but it was three shades of blue with a metal frame. I saw the logo and I remember that I thought of Arabic writing and a bird. The stroller had an oversized hood that would protect the child from the sun, rain and other people. Does this help? The boy was in a dark blue jacket and was white with a pretty small amount of hair for a kid his size. The nanny was white with dark hair she wore with the front in an uptail. She was wearing a man's style coat, heavy looking with wool on the collar. I can't say for certain what she was doing, but I know that she caught me studying her at Macy's and she looked 7 shades of guilty. She then left the area and possibly the store. If I was more certain, you bet I would have called security. But I have heard of this before moms and nannies who use the kids and strollers to steal all kinds of gifts and loot, especially at Christmas time. And you know when someone is watching for security guards, your baby isn't her #1 priority. Not too mention-just think of what happens when she gets caught with your baby. And she gets arrested. Your kid is going to end up traumatized.
