We all know, finding a reliable babysitter has been a bugbear of parents for decades – but a new app might just have tackled the issue once and for all. Founded by two dads, ‘bubble’ uses parents’ social networks (FB friends, phone contacts, even parent’s from school/nursery) to help them discover babysitters who are recommended by their friends and other local parents.
bubble – which was listed as one of Apple’s Top App’s for 2017 – has proved popular with parents across the country; over 40,000 mums and dads now book, review and (cashlessly) pay for bubble sitters (all of whom are insured and background/ID checked) through the app.
bubble is completely free to download, post requests and browse the profiles and reviews of local sitters. Parents simply pay a small £3.50 booking fee once they’ve found their perfect sitter.
It’s not just date-nights or a night with the girls that bubble is great for, so many mums (and dads) are using bubble to help entertain children while working from home, to go to a work meeting or even just for some me time – an hour at the gym or lunch with a friend.
And now if you are looking for regular help, bubble can do that too. Whether you are looking for school drop offs, pick ups or every Friday night use bubble plus feature ‘regular help’ to get you covered.
The guys from bubble are hitting the streets of Clapham and Balham on Monday and Tuesday, keep an eye out for them (perhaps around the tube stations ;) ) and grab a flyer for an exclusive discount.
You can Download the app on either Google / Apple app stores. Follow them on Instagram for comps and new features @bubblebabysittingapp.
