Fill Out Your Profile
Think of your profile like a digital sitter info sheet.
List your kids’ favorite foods, allergies, nap schedules… anything to help your friend give the best care.
Add your address so your friends can navigate to your house, your phone number so they can easily call or text, alt contact in case they can’t reach you.
This information is kept 100% secure. It’s only visible to people on your hand-selected friends list.
