Talk to someone about diabetes
No matter how much you want to protect and care for your child, it’s impossible to do so 24 hours a day. For some of the time, you’ll have to rely on others to look after them.
Nobody knows your child better than you, and learning to trust others to care for them can be difficult. But, if you refuse to allow anyone else to look after your child, two problems can arise:
You may need a carer for a variety of reasons – perhaps you need a regular childminder to take care of your child while you’re at work, or maybe you just fancy an evening out. You may opt for a professional childminder or go for a more informal babysitting arrangement with a friend. Whichever you choose, the following checklist will help you plan what you need to do so that you can leave your child safely with somebody else.
Discuss your child’s needs around their diabetes with their childminder. Your PDSN should be able to provide training.
