I need to find a baby sitter at short notice, don't leave near any family for their help. There are loads of websites advertising baby sitters, but where to I go to find a trust worthy one?

If very short notice you could use an agency like Sitters (they have a discount for mumsnetters, see mumsnet discounts section).

If you have time to do a short interview, then you can find local people via

Recomendations from patents you meet such as at toddler group.

As a nanny I get last minute bookings through Tinies or MyFamilyCare if that helps? smile

I started using Sitters last year and have been very impressed by the babysitters they have sent. They've generally been nannies and have had a really good way with my children. I didn't realise there was a MN discount so worth checking out.
