Stephanie added a great comment to my recent Monday Night Date Nights post, asking if I had any suggestions about babysitting options.
I’ve had a draft post about babysitting for over 2.5 years! I just had no idea where to start. So I thought I better get on and get this post published!
I put out a plea on NHM on FB asking for suggestions. There are a LOT of people who are looking for babysitters or who would like to be in a babysitting circle.
So, in an attempt to help people, I’ve created a FB Group for Babysitting in Basingstoke:
This is for parents and for qualified babysitters to make contact.
It is also a place where people can put up their comments about wanting to be in a babysitting circle.
I have no idea if this will work but at least it’s a start.
Please add anyone else to the group who you think would be interested. There is such a demand for babysitting in the area, that I can’t believe someone hasn’t jumped on this business opportunity already!!
For those who are interested in creating a babysitting circle, why not organise a family catch up so that groups of families meet so you know whether you feel comfortable leaving your child with other people.
Don’t forget there is the NHM Summer Picnic coming up on the 2nd of July, which could be a great opportunity to meet like minded NHM Readers.
Disclaimer: I would also like to add a disclaimer that I take no responsibility at all for via this Babysitting FB Group. I’m just putting people in touch with other people. It’s your responsibility to vet people, etc.
