I am not sure about you, but I have found that during the holiday season that I find myself needing more time…alone. OK with my husband too. Be it the stress of the holiday season or the busyness with the preparation, events and kids’ activities but all I know is that momma needs a break.
In comes Urban Sitter – an online resource founded by four busy parents where parents can go to find and book babysitters recommended by people they know. How is that? Urban Sitter syncs with your social networks to show you babysitters personally recommended (used and reviewed) by your friends and local parents in your mother’s group, child’s school, sports team and more. Urban Sitter combines two of the most important factors in choosing a new dependable sitter in my opinion: friend recommendations and important information such as experience, background check and hourly rate all in one convenient place!
You can create an account by logging in with Facebook and then simply search for sitters by the exact date and time you need them. You can even sort your babysitter results by filters including background check, hourly rate, and experience. Super useful badges on the sitters profiles indicate average response time to job requests, number of ‘repeat families’ who have booked them multiple times through the site, and if they accept credit cards for payment.
There is a wide range of babysitters on Urban Sitter that can fulfill any of your babysitting needs from last minute help or a recurring needs sitter or heck, even full time nanny. If you are looking for something specific you can even post a job and when a sitter is interested you will be contacted.Parents have the choice to interview the sitters or book them for a babysitting job by the click of a button. Parents can even pay the sitters online with a credit card and book a sitter while on the go with the free iPhone app; Urban Sitter really is the most convenient way to hire a trusted babysitter. Using Urban Sitter is currently free, but there is a $7.50 charge when paying by a credit card. However, the first credit card charge is free, so go ahead and try it!
Urban Sitter is hosting a giveaway of one year free of babysitting services, a $4,160 value of Urban Sitter credits. Enter now for a chance to win a year of babysitting from Urban Sitter.
