Count Down to Midnight! New Year's Eve Babysitter Tips


New Year's Eve is a night when some moms go wild so call a sitter and take a much-needed break to ring in 2011.

  • Rather than juggling your kids while getting dressed, have the sitter come over early so you can get ready in peace and feel relaxed when heading out the door.
  • If you are planning to party like you did in your pre-baby days, hire your sitter to spend the night and tend to your tots the following morning.
  • If your night on the town involves a loud location, consider communicating with your babysitter via text so you don't have to keep dashing outside to check in.
  • There's no need to fret over how much to pay the babysitter. Sittercity offers an easy and free solution with their rate calculator that configures the rate.

Since it's a holiday I would pay the sitter a little more then I would for any other day. Especially if you want them to spend the night and take care of your kids in the morning.
