Like clockwork, each week comes to an end and the posts start in the local mom groups:
“Can anyone babysit for a few hours tonight?”
“Anyone know of a local sitter they would recommend?”
“We need a sitter this weekend…”
Finding a reliable babysitter can be a challenge. Moms in the DFW area finally have a great option, thanks to Babysitting Connection.
Babysitting Connection meets your last-minute sitter needs and more through their membership service, matching top-notch babysitters with local families at affordable rates. Each sitter from Babysitting Connection has been through a careful and attentive vetting process, which means we busy moms don’t have to seek out those references and background checks ourselves. And, lucky reader, Babysitting Connection is generously offering a great promo!

Membership includes options for those who only need an occasional sitter and for those who need more regular childcare. With Consistent Care, your family can match with a sitter for regularly scheduled care over a period of six weeks to three months. Those who are interested in Sporadic Care can book a sitter as needed through Babysitting Connection’s easy-to-use scheduling software. And you won’t be locked into just one option. If you’ve got a sitter scheduled under Consistent Care, you can also add in Sporadic Care as needed.
I know I’m not the only mom who is anxious about leaving her children with babysitters. And finding someone new means taking time to crowd source, check references, interview, and more. It’s a lot. And we’re all already busy enough, right? If that’s you, too, here’s what you need to know to feel good about signing up as a member with Babysitting Connection:
Babysitting Connection sitters are personally interviewed before they can be added to the roster. And they must meet specific qualifications. Moms can rest assured that any sitter they find through Babysitting Connection is 18 or older, CPR certified, has passed a federal background check, has a vehicle and insurance, and has paid childcare experience. You know from the start, the sitters to choose from have been carefully vetted. Babysitting Connection does the hard work for you.
Finding Your Perfect Sitter
And what about availability? Well, don’t worry. With more than 200 sitters on the Babysitting Connection team, you’re sure to find a good fit for your family. And Babysitting Connection sitters come from many backgrounds. Some of their sitters are studying child development or have a background in nannying or child education. There are bilingual and multilingual sitters, so you can find a sitter who speaks English, Spanish, French, Urdu, or other languages.
They have sitters experienced in working with special needs children or with babies who are still nursing (experience thawing breast milk, etc.). Some sitters are musicians and will bring instruments along to entertain your little ones. Some sitters are experienced lifeguards or swim instructors and can take your children to swim. Hello, summer plans!
Babysitting Connection provides such an excellent service for local families with babies and young children. I know many moms who don’t have family or loved ones nearby to help with childcare, whether it’s for date nights, nights out with friends, gym time with a trainer, or last-minute help when work has us extra busy. Check out their great FAQ page for everything you need to know!
Parenting can be stressful. Finding the right sitter doesn’t have to be.
