Naomi Wildman can babysit . . ..
Assuming both parents are still in whatever amount of hours passes as full time employment on Voyager I think this is way too much, and beyond the word babysitting and into the word nanny. I think it would be nice for Naomi to help out a few hours a week, especially as the experience of caring for something dependent on you is not something she's had and if she'd been on earth she would have had a puppy or something by now. It's good for her social development. But she's not going to be taking care of the baby 40+ hours a week.
Okay, a holographic nanny can do the lion's share, but let's give Naomi a chance to earn some babysitting credits!
