How to find a last-minute babysitter, fast


We’ve all been there.

The reservations at the fancy restaurant with the mouthwatering brazed short rib and to-die-for locally brewed lager were made weeks ago. You maybe even splurged on a new outfit and got your nails done for the occasion. The baby sitter is booked and everything is ready to go.

But what’s that they say about the best-laid plans?

Even though the reservations are set and the new outfit is ready to go and the sitter will be over in a half hour, kids get sick. They go through epic teething struggles and get devastating owies and sometimes they just need their mommy or daddy. If nothing else, kids are unpredictable.

Does that mean you should quit making plans and set your relationship aside? Absolutely not.

There are ways to make date night happen despite the odds. There is an intervening force that can make a childless grocery shopping experience a reality. There are local services that are revolutionizing the way parents approach time away from their kids.

These services take the stress out of finding a last-minute babysitter. Each service is slightly different, but in general, users are able to simply login, review the profiles of trusted, reliable baby sitters nearby, select the right one and that person will be at your doorstep within minutes.

Here are two valuable ways most of these kinds of services can change everything for you and your family:

  1. It’s fast: You don’t know when your youngest is going to spike a fever or your oldest is going to get his leg stuck in an awkward position while trying to ride his training bicycle. These things happen on a daily basis, but that doesn’t mean your marriage should ever take second place. Instead, immediate babysitting services offer an easy-to-use system that lets you roll with something spontaneous. Because you don’t always know when the stars will align and that perfect evening could happen as a result.
  2. It’s safe: It’s always best to do your homework and find companies that value safety as much as you do. Fortunately, safety is the No. 1 priority for reputable services, where each sitter goes through an interview process, background check and is referenced. The interview process at many services is extensive, including both phone and face-to-face interviews as well as a full background check, including a social media screening. References are checked and a virtual interview is created to help parents get to know the person behind the name. Throughout the entire process, the service does the vetting for you so you don’t have to worry about the safety of your children.
