Read on for our best tips for securing a local, recommended New Year’s Eve babysitter. Here at Bambino, we make finding, booking, and paying great Sitters easy!
Top Tips for Finding an NYE Babysitter
Use the resources available to you! Bambino shows you a list of vetted, available, and recommended Sitters nearby. In the app, you create a booking request with the times they’ll need a Sitter, how many kids will be present, and any additional information they would need to know before accepting your request.
You review and select Sitters based on their profiles. We recommend checking the suggested Sitters box so that we can select additional Sitters for you if the ones you select are not available. Then, click send request and the request goes to your selected Sitters. They tell us if they’re available and then you can select the Sitter that is the best fit for your family.
Parents have 24 hours to confirm a Sitter on Bambino. For New Year’s Eve, we recommend confirming quickly and messaging your Sitter with any additional details of the sit so everyone is on the same page.
Tip: Make sure to give accurate times in the request. The Sitter needs to know whether you’ll need a babysitter all night or if you’ll be back before midnight. If plans change, message your Sitter immediately. Your Sitter is making a commitment to be available to sit for the times you need. Once it gets closer to the date, if you need to cancel or shorten the hours, it’s polite to compensate your Sitter appropriately.
