Find a Babysitter in Austin, Texas

Our Mission

Babysitting Connection was founded on the idea that parents already have enough on their plates. Finding reliable and trust-worthy babysitters can be a lot of work. Babysitting Connection can help. Whether you need an urgent sitter for a sick child, consistent reliable care on a weekly basis or a few date nights each month, we have you covered. Our service offers sitters every day of the year - with short-notice scheduling when needed. We also understand that the “perfect sitter” for one family may not be an ideal fit for another family. Babysitting Connection gives you choices.

Austin, Texas Babysitter Search

Our Founder

I am the mom behind Babysitting Connection. I am married to Geoff, and our children are Grant (6years) and Evelyn (4 years). My previous career was in recruiting and training before I became a stay-at-home mom in 2015. We moved the family to Austin and began our adventures in Texas in 2018.

I love a party, attending and organizing. I love Moms and supporting each and every one of them. I love a good New Zealand Sauvignon blanc, but I love a LaCroix and Titos more. I love traveling and adventures, my family and I visited 8 National Parks last summer while we spent 70 days traveling the country in a 30 ft travel trailer. I'm a little bit crazy and a lot of bit fun.

I'll chat with anyone. I absolutely thrive on connecting people, to help create partnerships and community. Want to meet for coffee? Playdate? Cocktail? Shoot me a message. I'd love to connect.

Our Coordinator

I'm Nikki, Babysitting Connection's Social Media & Marketing Director and Sitter Relations. I handle our social media, onboarding, connect with sitters and various other administrative tasks. I am married to Jonathan, and together we travel the United States by moving to a new state every three months. ⁠

I am originally from Austin and used to be a sitter for Babysitting Connection. Fun fact: I have only ever worked for small and local businesses. I love to digitally illustrate and explore new places and I prefer to live a more minimalistic lifestyle while collecting experiences. Because of this, my husband and I (and our two cats) travel the country with 5 suitcases, a car, and a motorcycle.
