Yesterday coming back from work I caught my 8 month boy naked playing with the nanny with the inflatable pool (she was in a bathing suit and he was butt naked).
Now, she is very affectionate with him whenever she bathes him and changes him, she tickles play-bites and kisses him on tummy and butt ... What bothered me was that she did not tell me out before and she did outdoors with an open fence
What do you think?
Shouldl I tell her something?
What would be your reaction in a similar situation?

I wouldn't have any problem with my 8 month old being naked in an inflatable pool. Babies are allowed to be naked IMO.
I would be OK as long as it is in my own fenced backyard, but not if it was where other people could observe them. I am with Bonita on the 'too many sicko's' comment. My husband is RCMP, and a few years ago they arrested a guy for filming naked babies and toddlers at the local outdoor swimming pool. He was parked in his van, filming them out the window. SICK!!!
I would also make sure that my sitter knows I dont want any naked pics taken. Not that she is using them for anything bad, but it is so easy now to snap a pic with a cell phone and send it out onto the net, because she wants to share how cute and wonderful your son is. And naked babies are cute and totally natural, but once that pic is out there it just skeeves me what it could be used for.

I want to add that part of my opinion comes from one of my oldest daughters good friends. Here is this 9 year old girl that has been taken out of the home and put in foster care. Her father put in jail for the next 20 years at least. Her father and possibly older brother has been raping her for years. Beyond makes me sick. We knew this man well and had him over to our house without ever knowing what was happening. It has blown my trust in allowing people access to my girls. In a perfect world kids could go around naked, but we do not live in a perfect world.
I wouldn't have an issue with a caregiver allowing naked time. If I trust them to change diapers/panties and bathe then I trust with naked time. DD loves to be naked! We allow it in house or backyard (privacy fence).
I wouldn't have a problem with that. Our kids all went naked in the daycare's inflatable pool, outdoors with no fence, until they were old enough to put on their own bathing suits.

No problems here. Our nanny is a freak about getting him dressed. I had him in just a diaper one day a couple of weeks ago and forgot my hat and when I came back in from the car, she was dressing him. I wouldn't worry about our backyard either. While I don't like our next door neighbors (who the F cuts loops in the top of a privacy fence?), I don't think they're perverts and even if they are, I think she'd notice if they were staring let alone taking pictures. I even change his diaper in public (the waterpark only has one changing table and it's usually occupied so I just take him in the grass).
