Babysitting Connection

5701 West Slaughter Lane A130-427, Austin, Texas 78749


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 and it’s here to help! Babysitting Connection understands that the “perfect sitter” for one family may not be an ideal fit for another family, and that’s where options come in.

Babysitting Connection launched in 2020 with the goal of providing parents with date nights and time to themselves, as well as consistent childcare for families who want the same sitter each week on a set schedule.

The goal is to take the stress out of finding high-quality childcare by providing you with a roster of sitters who have shown they are responsible, responsive, caring, and meet all the qualifications to ensure a safe and positive environment. Each sitter is background and driving record checked, at least 18 years old, and CPR certified.

Looking for date nights? Need someone at your house three days a week to help with school? Through the affordable membership service, you can schedule a babysitter any time day or night. Simply become a member and start booking! And the best part is that you can save 50% off your first month  with the promo code FORTWORTHMOMS.

Membership :: Babysitting Connection offers three levels of membership; basic (book three sits a month), premium (book ten sits a month), and platinum (book UNLIMITED sits a month). The monthly membership fee DOES NOT include the minimum hourly rate, which will be paid directly to sitters.

Sitting Fees: For sitting services, hourly rates for sitters are $16/hour for one child, $17/hour for two children, $18/hour for three children, and $19/hour for four or five children. Group rates are also available: $20/hour for sits that require more than one sitter with six+ children. There is a three hour sit minimum.

Ages of children served: All ages (newborns and up).

Founded in 2020 by a Fort Worth mom, The First Milestones is a full-service nanny agency built on these beliefs. It truly takes a village to raise a child, and every child deserves to have a safe, healthy, and loving environment in which to grow and thrive.

The First Milestones applies a rigorous approach to finding nannies for DFW families, strives for a strong understanding of each family dynamic, and works to match clients with caregivers who will complement unique parenting approaches. The company partners with a respected background investigation provider to ensure every nanny is a safe choice. From interview to placement, The First Milestones is committed to guiding families through every step of the process.

In addition, it offers resources to help build a strong relationship with a nanny, provides tools to manage a caregiver, seeks to cultivate open communication and feedback, and provides up-to-date practices on household employee guidelines.

The First Milestones knows it’s important to give back to the community, so a portion of every placement fee is donated to Shaken Baby Alliance, Fortress Fort Worth, and Safe Haven, three Fort Worth non-profit organizations.
