- NO administrative or scheduling hassles

What’s a Babysitting Co-op / Swap / Exchange?
You sit for my kid, next time I’ll sit for yours
- Instead of hiring babysitters, simply exchange babysitting duties within a group of other local parents. Your child gets a playdate, and you save serious $$$ on sitters! It’s free childcare!
- BUT, how do you track who sat for whom?
Who’s not doing her fair share?
Who keeps records?
Who calls everyone?
Dues, meetings — really?!
- And do you even know all these neighbors???
How uSit iSit improves on the traditional sitter swap:
- NO strangers — exchange babysitting ONLY with friends you’ve invited into your circle
- NO scheduling headaches — skip the endless phone calls, texts, emails — the app handles it
- NO record-keeping— automatic tracking keeps everyone honest
- NO meetings to waste precious free time
- YES, it’s FREE — unlike your babysitter!
How the uSit iSit babysitting exchange works:
- Friend-based, not neighborhood-based. You have your own individual co-op, trading ONLY within your circle of friends that you invited.
- Each friend is then the center of her own co-op, swapping only with her own, unique circle of trusted friends, and so on…
- Automated administration & communication. Need a sitter? One tap tells your whole circle. When someone responds, the app tells you.
- Points track sitting-hours, keeping it all fair. Earn Points by sitting; spend them on a friend who sits for you.
