Sitters.co.uk is our favourite online service for finding one-off baby sitters. After inputting your postcode they’ll match you with a baby sitter who can be at your door in as little as 90 minutes!
If you’re looking for regular childcare then Sitters might not be the right option for you, but for those odd occasions when you have to travel for work, or maybe you fancy a romantic night out, Sitters is definitely the place to go.
Speaking of travelling for work, perhaps you need a childcarer to stay with your baby at the hotel while you head to that special conference? Not a problem with Sitters!
There is a small monthly fee of around £5 to have access to Sitters and a booking fee of £4-6 but we think it’s well worth it for the peace of mind.
What we love about Sitters: Sitters do all the usual things you would expect from a baby sitting platform. They perform background checks on all their childcarers and make sure they have at least 2 years experience before bringing them onto their team.
What we think makes them really special is the speed at which you can get a sitter. Stop planning your date night 2 weeks in advance. With Sitters you can get some spontaneity back in your life.
