I got contacted by these guys a few weeks ago and I’ll be honest with coming out Christmas and getting organised and on the straight and narrow for new year it took me a while to actually take a good look at what the service provides.

Babysits provides an online directory and community to link parents and childcare providers in a safe, easy way. They also have a handy app for both IOS or Andoid users. The steps are as easy as below but you can check is out for yourself here:

We only really have one grandparent to call on for babysitting duties so with two now in tow I think it would be no harm having a back up sitter that the boys were familiar with. 

I found this site very easy to navigate and liked the extensive descriptions. It has each minders availability too and some have references there to see. It’s a great start and then you use your own judgement when meeting the person if they will be a right fit for your family. I’m not going to lie I’d be pretty nervous leaving the boys in the care of someone other than family/friends but if there was a route to go down this is a good place to start!
