  • It's really hard sometimes. I have found mine through my mommy groups on meetup.com and also my girlfriends from work watch her for things like date nights. One thing I've found out by trial and error if you're looking for a full time babysitter makes sure you not only like them, but that they have the same parenting methods as you. I had issues with my last one because, though we were friends, she had very different parenting methods, like she would let her son cry it out and I don't do that with my daughter, etc. Hope this helps.

  • Believe it or not, I found mine on Craigslist.com lol. She's really great with my daughter and my daughter plays really well with her kids. She's a neat gal and I really like her.

  • ask around, the best way to find someone is find out who other people use, they may also know of someone else who has an awesome sitter. I have found many sitters asking friends and co-workers. Many times you can also ask a sitter who they would suggest, some sitters cant always take on more kids but they normally know of another sitter who can.
