According to the Gosselins, they do not have a nanny. However, they do have a "mother's helper" that helps with the children 6 hours a day. Whatever title you give her, this woman helps the Gosselin's keep up with their 8 children.

Do the Gosselins have a nanny?

During season 2, the Gosselins hired a babysitter from nannies4hire. She is no longer there, but recently they have said on newer episodes that they will never have a nanny. At this time, the Gosselins have a helper that helps them out 4-6 hours a day. The nanny issue is one of the hot-topics of discussion surrounding the Gosselins and their reality show. Is a help that is there 4-6 hours a day full time? Technically no. Is she a a formal nanny? Technically, no, since she helps the family with general household duties as well. According to the Gosselins, they are doing it 'on their own." But reports and comments from the Gosselins themselves indicate they do have help. It is up to you to decide the rest. In a recent episode, Kate Gosselin said their current babysitter prefers her privacy, so she won't be on camera or have her identity revealed.

How many nannies have the Gosselins had?

How much help the Gosselins have had while raising their children is a hot topic on message boards and blogs about 'Jon & Kate Plus 8." While Kate Gosselin contends that they have never had a nanny, other say that the Gosselins have had substantial round-the-clock help since the birth of the sextuplets. Initially, a cadre of organized volunteers and a state funded nurse helped the Gosselins care for their children. After the first year, the state stopped funding for the nurse, but some volunteers continued to assist the Gosselins. Then, Dr. Phil provided a the Gosselins with a girl from Nannies 4 Hire. Still, the Gosselins continue to assert that they have never had a nanny. As their fame grew, the Gosselins continue to use paid "people" to help them manage their brood of 8. While they may not be nannies, they do things that most people would typically associate with a nanny caring for children. The exact number is not known, however the Gosselin's former nurse said that Kate Gosselin had fired more than 2 dozen nurses prior to her arrival in the Gosselin home.
