Maybe you’re on your maiden journey into diaper changing and sleep loss, or perhaps you’re a second- or third-time pro when it comes to potty training your walking, talking “I can do it!” toddler. Regardless, we all need a little support. Whether you need last-minute drop-in child care to finish those errands tantrum free, or some much-needed comic relief and insight from your favorite mama blogger, here are some of your top picks.


Best of Seattle: A Nanny for UNanny or Babysitting Service

Winner: A Nanny for U
When you need a new nanny, finding the perfect fit can be a real challenge. A Nanny for U allows you to skip past all of the résumés and interviews by pairing your family with the best candidate for your child. But that’s not all; it also offers temporary child care, housekeepers, doulas and more — perfect for when you just need a little help, yet don’t know where to turn. And although voters have plenty to say about A Nanny for U’s speedy service and nanny-matching wisdom, they also comment on the fact that the staff is “trustworthy,” “always helpful and friendly” and that they’re “extremely professional and affordable.”

Annie’s Nannies Household Staffing put up a great fight in this category and is clearly a favorite among parents, with one voter saying, “They always find someone, even in a pinch, and we've got newborn twins. Not an easy task! They also placed two overnight nannies with us, whom we love!”

SeekingSitters gets praise for its “great service” and “overly qualified sitters.”

The Seattle Nanny Network is noted as having “reliable, trustworthy nannies at competitive rates.”

Step By Step Daycare in Seattle offers an bilingual environment where kids up to 11 years old can create, explore and play – all while possibly picking up a little Spanish in the process. Voters rave about Step By Step, saying that it is a “clean, loving and nurturing environment” with an “excellent staffing ratio” and a “good price.”, an online resource covering an array of options from childcare to housekeeping, allows parents to post their childcare needs, view babysitters in the area and much more. Overall, voters give it thumbs up because it’s “easy to use and trustworthy.”
