“Must-have app for every parent!” ~Colorado Parent Magazine

"This app has literally changed my life as a busy working mom. It makes finding, booking, and paying sitters so easy! Could not recommend it enough! You won’t be disappointed.” ~iOS Review, Boulder Momma 7

"Love this app! Finding a babysitter is never a limiting factor for our family anymore.” ~iOS Review, Jjungman

"Greatest app ever for booking sitters." ~iOS Review, Jbird8282


1. Import your sitters' phone numbers from your contact list. It’s completely private! We don’t share their info or spam them.
2. Select a date and time.
3. Tap "Send".

That's it!

Sitter sends a message to your sitters with the details. They reply with a “Y” or “N” to accept or decline. The first one to accept gets the job! They don’t even need the app!

At the end of the night, confirm the amount and tap "Pay". You’re done!


When you need to hire a new babysitter, the best way to find them is through friends. Connect with friends to create a private network of parents and trusted sitters, so you can find new sitters quickly, based on your friends' recommendations.

Babysitter side

This app has been amazing for scheduling. I just wish it would let me block out days I know i won’t be available so that the family can’t even request it. For that day. It would maybe then send the request to the other sitters. Would make it easier then trying to verify my schedule before accepting the request if I already had the days I couldn’t blocked out. I also wish there was a way to review all my payments easily instead of having to go through all past bookings. Other than that this app has been amazing.

So convenient for 3 kids and 2 full time jobs

I seriously love this app. Being able to notify all sitters at once is awesome and so convenient. It’s really great. When we can we try to use his or my parents but when they are u available I can message all my sitters simultaneously and not have to wait for one to respond before reaching out to others. I get much faster childcare coverage than traditional methods of phone chaining.

Great app!

I've been using this the app for a few months but now I'm locked out. It said an updated was needed so I updated it through the App Store but every time I click on open it says update needed and I click on that and it takes me to the App Store. It's a never ending circle and I'm scared if I delete it and reinstall all my data will be lost. :(
