Babies: 3 - 6 Months

XP: sittercity or care.com

Hi--coming from the 0-3 month board & thought those with older babies might have more experience. Just curious about people's experiences with both. We are looking to hire a nanny and want a high quality person. I'm curious about the people you found on the site, the quality of the background checks, search features, etc. I have an unpaid trial thing on care.com & I have quite a few applicants, but I can't contact anybody unless I pay for membership. I also read from a few people that the background checks offered on both sites vary. Thanks!

  • Our is from care.com.

    In all honestly you have to know what you wNt/ are looking for and weed out the ones that don't apply like teenagers. For me college kids. I wanted someone older who would treat my own like their grandchild.
  • I only used sittercity for a babysitter to help out when DH is gone. I had horrible luck. I was looking at local college students due to pay and availability. But with them being in college I swear I only heard back from one out of all the emails I sent out. So I ended up getting rid of the membership and getting recommendations from friends instead.
