Recent Babysitter reviews in Melbourne

"Catherine is highly skilled and has impressive qualifications in the children's services industry. After a really hard time in choosing to have someone look after my children a stranger I felt much at ease with Catherine she is more than capable. A polite woman with empathy and compassion is essentials the best traits to have Catherine was all of these and more she is a lovely person. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Catherine to anyone I know that's requiring a highly trained babysitter/nanny or children's educator I am sure she will do very well on airtasker. AAA+++ thank you so so much Catherine for your underfunding I can't wait to have my children looked after by you with future tasks. Chloe "

What do Babysitting services include?

Babysitting services include several tasks such as changing the diaper, preparing the baby’s meals and feeding them, ensuring they take their afternoon nap. If specified, and other services like administering any medication as necessary, bathing them and putting a new change of clothes on them as needed.
 
Diaper Changing

The babysitter disposes soiled diapers and changes them with new ones. Any cleaning and disinfecting of the baby will be done as well before fitting a fresh diaper. Babysitters will also perform any clean up as necessary if the baby left any messes. Be sure to provide the needed cleaning equipment as well as disinfectant, baby soap and detergent.
 
Preparing and Feeding Meals

Should the babysitter’s hours reach any feeding times, babysitters will prepare meals and patiently feed your babies. Be sure to have the appropriate food ready for them to prepare and feed to your babies. Babysitters will disinfect baby bottles and prepare formula and prepare the cutlery and flatware before proceeding to feed your bundles of joy. Cleanup after feeding is also part of the service, and the utensils, flatware and bottles will be put away.
 
Playtime with your Babies

Before taking your babies to their cribs or beds for naptime, some babysitters may engage your babies in a short play session. Babysitters can place them in their play crib and play with them using their favourite toys. If your children are toddlers, the babysitter can engage them in simple games using their toys and even read them a story to prepare them for naptime.  

Preparing for Naptime

Babysitters will take your baby to their cribs or beds for naptime at the time you specify. They will patiently rock or lull them to sleep and ensure they are safely tucked in. You can provide some items to help your babies sleep, like a music box or mobile that plays a soft lullaby. Babysitters will remain with your baby as they nap and periodically check on them. Should they rouse from the nap due to a wet diaper, the babysitter will change their diapers straight away.
 
Other Services

Other babysitting services can include bathing and changing the clothes of your babies as necessary. If they have any medications, the babysitter can administer these to them. Be sure to advise them of the dosage and have their medications ready. Some babysitters may offer to buy the baby food or formula for their meal times during the day if you’ve run out of these items.

Hi, looking or a nanny for our 24 months old boy. We live in an apartment in toorak and would like to meet a nanny that also lives in the area. Nanny need to be over 30 of age, experienced with toddlers, patience, lovable and preferably a mom herself. As a start, we need the nanny to look after our son 2 full days a week. No matter which days. We need to meet the nanny for an interview first, so I will schedule here on Airtasker 1 hour only, for a symbolic price...... Only serious candidates please. Thanks Michelle

We are shocked by this lady. She came for a nanny job and all perfect. She supposed to start the day after. Later on when she left she asked many questions by messages and all were answered and agreed no, even her payout methods etc. An hour later, she wrote me that she is not coming and taking the job. We had enough of crazy people. No more for us! Be aware of this if you are to employ this lady.

Hi there, we are a friendly, warm gay couple. We're looking for an experienced baby sitter for the following 2 dates, but hope through these 2 sessions we can get to meet someone lovely and keep in touch for regular work :) Two dates to start with: > Tue 9 Feb (next week) from around 5.30pm to around 11pm AND > Sat 20 Feb from around 6.30pm to around 10pm Must be free on both dates, and have experience babysitting infants (and/or have had children of your own). Would love if you're happy to do a couple of light tasks around the house once baby is asleep like folding laundry or stacking/un-stacking the dishwasher, tidying up toys if at all :) Must be comfortable working with a queer family, in our home. If we all feel happy/comfortable, we'd love to see if we can stay in touch for future baby sitting down the track! We are happy to pay $20/hour and we have only put 1 hour on the airtasker advertisement so you don't have to pay high fees. The remainder will be paid in person in cash for each session. Hope to meet someone lovely and look forward to hearing from you.

Ruby is communicative, clear and diligent with her approach. Ruby had to manage an unsettled baby when we left and used her skills and attentiveness to get baby to sleep. Ruby kept us up to date during the evening, paying special attention to how baby was doing during the night. Thank you Ruby. Highly recommended.
