DS1 was playing with the babysitter today and she pulled him up by his hands and he ended up dislocating his elbow. It is called nursemaid's elbow. The doctor was able to fix it and he was fine a couple minutes later.
What I am debating now is wether or not to keep using this babysitter. She just started with us a couple of weeks ago, and she has two children of her own, and has watched other children. I don't think that she did it intentionally, but DH and I both know that you aren't supposed to pick small children up with their hands because this can happen. DH feels that she should have known this and questions her competency. Plus he is a very anxious person and now doesn't feel comfortable leaving the kids alone with her.
I am torn because I do like her, but don't know her well. I also feel like there isn't a point in having a sitter if you can't trust her alone with the kids. Right now I am home, but was planning on going back to work part time. Are we overreacting? WWYD?
