Tending to Baby: CareSquare

Your best friend's party is tomorrow night, your babysitter canceled, and your mom has the flu. What's a party-starved mom to do? to the rescue.

The website is a place where parents and caregivers can connect and gather information on each other. Each sitter posts a profile, schedule, references, and notes. You need not worry about babysitters misrepresenting themselves since you can check out peer reviews and feedback for each one.

Getting started is simple — just post a profile. Once it's up, you can recommend sitters and book them. And, an availability calendar makes it easy to find specific times and dates.

Then, you're off to the party.

I like the idea of this for finding babysitters but, yeah, I think it's just a tool to possibly find someone and test out. I certainly don't think I could just leave my baby with someone I'd never met. Maybe if there were lots of background checks and some way to ensure this was someone... well, it would just get too complicated then, I think. I guess I'm divided on this.

WOW. There is NO way in hell I'd invite some stranger over that I found online so I can go out to a party. I'm surprised there are people out there that would actually use this.

The concept is good, but I would never, ever do this.

Using someone I found on an emergency basis would scare me. I'd stay home rather than use it, too. I can "go out once in awhile" with the regular sitter and my mom if they're normally available. Or, if it's my best friend, my husband can stay home while I go celebrate with her.
