How to request your sitter when you schedule your sit:
When scheduling a sit, include in the Sit Comments the sitter you want to have fill the sit, as well as the date you want to hold the sit for her.
Example: "Request Jessica Plunkett or Tori Hartigan, please hold until 8/23."
The sit will be reserved for your requested sitters until the hold date. Using the example, after 6 p.m. on August 23, all sitters will be permitted access to the sit. Holding a sit for three days should be sufficient for the sitters to have time to check their schedules.
We have been concerned that allowing these requests would negatively impact our ability to get your sit filled, but we want to make it easier for our sitters and families to stick with each other. Therefore, when you schedule sit requests of this nature we can't guarantee your sit will get filled, and will not offer any compensation for sits that don't get matched up.
We at BabysitEase hope that this new Sitter Request option will provide families and sitters with sitter request success.
