Re: Who should buy it?

If you just want to avoid the hassle then it is you who should buy the seat. They have a seat and if you have access to it then you should use that. I would personally would not buy a new seat for a nanny or daycare provider.

Stay away from the Comfort Sport seats. They have very low top slots and are outgrown early. They have the lowest rear facing weight on the market too. You are better off with an OnSide Air In that price range.

Its paRt of your business so I think you should. Plus if that kid grows out then you own in case you watch another that will need it. Expense it on taxes.

You should, unless this job is temporary (like 6 months or less) and they plan to take the seat after IMO.

I was a nanny. I needed to transport her periodically but not for things related to my job. I bought the seat and left it with my employers when I left. I was there 2 years.

if you are doing it for your convience then you should buy it.

Unless the kid is on the very small side I would not get the comfort sport. We had one for DS1 and he outgrew it FF before he was 2.

I guess the way I see it is if transporting her is a required part of your job, then they should provide it. If it's your choice to drive places, you should.

Ok I made a mistake she is actually 23.5 mths ,18 mths is for the little girl of the other family I interviewed for the day before. She'll be 2 yrs on the 15th of Jan. she'll meets the requirements of my Britax frontier 85 that is still 5 point harnessing,was only used about 6 months and has never been in an accident,if I had a choice she'd be riding rear facing with me but she's been forwards facing since 14 mths with her parents already. so I guess I'll wait until her 2nd B-day to use my seat even though she meets the weight/height requirement already.

If you are a nanny, meaning you are the parents' employee, then I would expect the parents to cover all costs related to the job. If you are a babysitter for several families or run a home daycare, meaning you are an independent contractor or small business owner, you should pay and factor the cost into your rate.
