I’ve been meaning to get a babysitter for a while now. No one has watched Gabriella besides her father, myself, and close family & friends. Although we have a great network of people in our lives, sometimes they aren’t available. I’ll be honest- I have also just been scared to get a “stranger” to watch my child. However, my friend was telling me about UrbanSitter not too long ago, so I felt better about it. It was perfect timing when I was asked to do an UrbanSitter review for my blog- Mom In Love Forever!
What Is UrbanSitter?
UrbanSitter is a convenient way to find babysitters and nannies for occasional needs, last-minute help, backup care and part- or full-time needs! Get recommendations from parents you know. I love that feature! UrbanSitter taps in to your friends and parenting social circles to help you find sitters personally hired and reviewed by parents from your child’s school, after-school activities, and your network of friends on Facebook and LinkedIn. Easy online scheduling. UrbanSitters keep their schedules online, so parents can book a job or interview with just a click! Best of all, at the end of the night, skip the ATM and pay your sitter conveniently by credit card with a tap! Talk about convenience all around!
I am so happy with UrbanSitter! I wish I had started using them sooner! Let’s start with ease of use. It was really easy setting up my account, putting in my info and synching my social media! Searching was easy. I love that it shows what sitters my friends have used in the past or are currently using. My friend who uses the service, lives in the same area as me so I requested 1 of her sitters when I was doing my search. She was unavailable though. It’s important to choose a few sitters that way someone is bound to be available.Don’t worry, only 1 person will get booked. I love that you can filter your search as much as you want, which is great! Ultimately, I am VERY happy with the baby sitter Gabby and I ended up with!
You can use UrbanSitter online through their website or via their app! I’m all about ease of use, and the website and app are very user friendly! Another feature I loved which I mentioned above is being able to pay with your credit card! It just makes things a lot easier that way. You can even tip your babysitter when doing the payment which is great!
Our babysitter Iva was awesome! The minute she knocked on our door she had a smile on her face and immediately asked me what I needed help with. I asked her if she could take Gabby to the nearby park so I can go run some errands and get some work done. Gabby was so excited, and Iva seemed really friendly and had great reviews so I felt at ease. After they left I kinda of just sat there for a while and thought “Whoa, I actually have some “Me Time” right now!
I love being a mom, but it’s important to have “Me Time” as well! I worked on some blog stuff for a bit then headed out to run some errands and grabbed a bite to eat. I figured since Iva hadn’t called me, everything must have been going well! I definitely plan on using UrbanSitter again in the near future, especially now that I feel comfortable with the service and can hopefully get the same awesome sitter again! I sometimes need a sitter for when I get invited to last minute events, or who knows, perhaps for a date night!
Gabby approves! Thumbs up!
