You can add your own babysitters two ways: manually or from your phone contacts.

In the app:

  1. Open the main menu in the top corner of the app.
  2. Tap “My Sitters”.
  3. Tap the “+” icon in the top-left corner of your sitter list.

From here, you can add sitters manually, from your phone contacts, or from friends.

Adding a Babysitter from your Phone Contacts

  1. Select “From Contacts”.
  2. If this is your first time accessing your contacts on the app, you will need to give Sitter permission to access your phone contacts. We only need access so you can select the babysitters you want from your contacts. We will only contact the babysitters you add to the app.
  3. Select the contact from your contacts list.
  4. If you wish to add more than one, tap “Add Another”.
  5. When you have the babysitters you want to add, tap “Next”.
  6. Enter a custom message for your babysitter. This message will be included in the message sent to the babysitter.
  7. Tap “Add Sitter”. When you add the sitter, a text message including your custom message and instructions on how they can respond to your booking requests will be sent to your babysitter. The text message will come from a Sitter phone number but will have your name in it so they know who added them.
  8. That’s it! Now, you can book them through the app!

Adding a Babysitter Manually

If you don’t have your babysitter’s information stored in your phone, you can input their information manually.

  1. Select “Manually”.
  2. Enter the babysitter’s first name, last name, phone number, and email address. Email is encouraged but not required.
  3. Enter a custom message for your babysitter. This message will be included in the text message sent to the babysitter.
  4. Tap “Add Sitter”. When you add the sitter, a text message including your custom message and instructions on how they can respond to your booking requests will be sent to your babysitter. The text message will come from a Sitter phone number but will have your name in it so they know who added them.
  5. That’s it! Now, you can book them through the app!
