Kate was great with our boys! We hired her twice to watch our newborn so my husband could handle our 3 year old and have some downtime while I was out. We'll definitely see her again!

My daughter had a great time with Kate! She successfully steered her into playing when she was melting down over a present that she wanted. She put her to bed with ease and communicated with me through the night with updates on how it was going! Definitely would have her back!

Kaitlyn was awesome! We chatted about random stuff for a solid 15 minutes after I got home. Which is probably a recorder for me because I'm super anti-social. Needless to say, she is very easy going and friendly. Plus, she was great with my kids.

Kate was awesome. Made us feel so comfortable leaving our 9 mos old with someone we didn't know by making us feel like we had known her forever. She jumped right in to reading a bedtime story and putting DD to bed and then talking with us for a little bit before we headed out for NYE. We found the dishwasher emptied and bottles cleaned the next morning when we woke up. Such a thoughtful touch that really wasn't necessary but made our day so much easier.

My child had a great time with Kate, playing chess and engaging with our pets. And... I appreciated Kate's (unsolicited!) help in tidy-ing up the dishes from dinner.

Katelyn is a real pro and we loved her! She was so great with our two kids, ages 3 years and 11 months. They warmed up to her very quickly and had a great time together. No tears from my 11 month old, who is going through her separation anxiety phase, and her extensive experience made for a very smooth night with our 3 year old who currently likes to test boundaries. We were very reassured to know they were in caring and capable hands.

Kate was a perfect sitter for our son. She took the time to email us with pertinent questions about food allergies and other care before the date. She left a very extensive note about EVERYTHING they did & what happened during the day. She took him for a walk & the stroller, and to a park, & even sent pics. He got himself dirty during dinner (as he does often) and she gave him a bath. We will definitely be looking for her the next time we need a sitter!

Kate was wonderful. She pitched right in when she arrived and started helping out with both of my kids. She was really great with my son and I loved watching her interact and play with him. He loved her! And when my daughter accidentally spilled a bowl of soup during dinnertime, she immediately helped me clean up and offered to take her from me while I got cleaned up, no questions asked. She was also able to get my son down to bed with no trouble at all, which is no small feat! I felt comfortable with her right away and would definitely have her back!

Arrived on time, friendly and easy going. My 15 month old clicked with katlyn immediately, playing and reading books as I was getting ready to leave. I was able to leave feeling confident. I also really liked how Katlyn was comfortable with babywearing to help keep my little one secure and safe, especially since it was his first time with a sitter. Upon her leaving for the night, he was all smiles, even waving bye to her. She left a good impression on all of us. I'd book with Katlyn again.

Kate was, once again, amazing. She even took our dogs out for a walk with our son! And it's always fun to hear the stories she shares of her time with him.

My boys had a wonderful day/evening with Kate! This is the longest we've left them with a sitter (7+ hours) and they were happy and all ready for bed when we got home. She went above and beyond cleaning up the kitchen (ran the washer and put away the dishes) which was such a wonderful surprise. We'd love to have her back!

Robert G.

Kate was like no sitter before. She kept detailed notes about our baby's day, kept him playing all morning, and even took it upon herself to tidy up the kitchen while our son was napping. 6 out of 5 stars. She's the best.

Katlyn was great. She knew exactly how to walk into a new situation and set everyone at ease. We communicated beforehand and she was very thorough and prepared. On the day of the sitting, she texted ahead of time and arrived a few minutes early. Our toddler is usually very shy when he meets new people but was interested in Kate from the moment she introduced herself. She was great at occupying him while we left. We felt very comfortable with Kate as a sitter and we would definitely have her sit for us again!

Katlyn was outstanding. If all the sitters on this app are as good as she is, I'll be using it for a long time to come. She was super-engaging with my twin 19-month olds, even taking them to the park for 2 hours and returning with everyone in one piece--a remarkable feat. My husband won't even take both to the park without reinforcements. We even got pictures of the adventures. I would most certainly recommend Katlyn and plan to use her frequently in the future.

Kate recently watched our two children ages 7 and 1 1/2 and did an excellent job! She was great when it came to interacting and playing with the kids! You can tell she's been doing this for a while! Our kids took to Kate right away which made us happy and comfortable. She also kept the house tidy and cleaned up after the kids...which was a nice surprise. You can tell she had things under control. We will certainly ask Kate to come and babysit for us again real soon!! THANKS KATE!!
