What are the pros and cons of hiring an au pair?

Asked by shilolo (17993points) October 23rd, 2008

My wife and I both work, and (sadly) live very busy lives. We have been discussing what to do for child care for our second child, and the topic of an au pair came up. Does anyone have any personal experience or advice to share regarding an au pair versus nanny versus day care? I am particularly curious about people with au pair experience (either having worked as au pairs or having hired one).
