The secret is to build a team of sitters you trust. Sitter makes it ridiculously easy.

“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

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.

Good app


The registration process is a bit lengthy but we have used this to find a successfully find a sitter at the last minute. My husband and I are having trouble installing the latest updates - something in our firewall is blocking it, despite not having this issue with any other app or with previous versions of this app.
