Try @SitterTree: An Atlanta Sitter Service Designed to Save Your Sanity This Holiday Season #AD

Every holiday season I find myself in shock that the end of the year is creeping up. Of course, traveling to see relatives needs to be finalized.  I also have a few freelance contracts that have ramped up before the end of the year that will require my attention. My husband works so hard that he rarely uses his vacation days until the end of the year and we haven’t been on a formal date since the Spring. Any day now the Holiday Party invitations will start coming in too. What’s a busy family to do?! Hire a sitter. Keep reading about a reliable Atlanta sitter service that can help make your family’s holiday season a breeze.

Thank you to SitterTree for sponsoring this conversation and offering Mommy Talk Show’s Atlanta parents an opportunity to try the service with a complimentary sitter request fee. (Hourly sitter rate is NOT included.)



As a work at home mom, I initially thought that I’d be able to do all of my work duties during nap times, school hours and weekends. That’s rarely the case anymore. I used to burn the candle on both ends – working late and rising early – until my body showed me that all of these things are not possible once you’re over 40 and require more rest.

I’ve had a few talks with A.J. already to let him know that between my current projects and my search for a part-time job, he’ll likely have a sitter over soon to watch home while we’re away.

How can a holiday sitter help your family navigate the hectic holiday season?  Here’s what you can do this holiday season with a sitter who’s a few clicks away:

Set up a profile on SitterTree

This allows the SitterTree coordinator to find the perfect match for your family’s needs.

All SitterTree sitters are background checked and interviewed before they’re matched with a family.

Purchase a sitter request

Use the code: FREETST to receive one (1) free sitter request (value: $20).

This initiates the matchmaking phase for the SitterTree coordinator to connect you with a sitter.

Pay the hourly rate when you sitter arrives. Overnight sitting is available too.

Review & Refer your sitter

Parents rely on reviews to help them make the best decisions for their families. Save your favorite sitters on your profile and the SitterTree team will do their best to coordinate your schedules.

If you find SitterTre convenient and user-friendly, you can earn free sitter requests for referring new families to sign-up.

  1. This is a dope concept! I hope ppl leave detailed reviews I’m always worried about finding a babysitter!

  2. This sounds so great especially for new parents like me!

  3. Wow this type of service would sure be handy in my town, as long as the background check pan out. I have family, but none I can rely on for babysitting when I really need it.

  4. This is such an amazing idea! I wish they had been around when my kids were younger. I would have been one of their best customers!

  5. I am so glad I don’t need a sitter anymore now that the kids are older. It was always tough to find a reliable person so this service will help so many in your area.

  6. This seems like such a cool service. Sometimes it can be very difficult to find a sitter when you really need one. Thank you for sharing!

  7. This is awesome! I recently went back to work full time and my husband works full time. We mainly use family for sitters but it would be nice to be able to go out with family sometimes sans the kids and no one has to stay back to watch the kids! I like this idea!

  8. This is awesome. I wish it was around years ago when my kids were younger. Now i have teens that would LOVE to be paid to babysit

  9. This is awesome. I wish it was around years ago when my kids were younger. Now i have teens that would LOVE to be paid to babysit. I am going to let my sisters know about this service

  10. This is great for people who don’t have family in the area to use or need someone on a whim. I wish this service was in NY.

  11. I’m going to see if they have this out my way. Every so often I need to be able to get out and I am in need of a sitter.

  12. SitterTree sounds like such a helpful service! I always had such a hard time with sitters when my girls were little. I really could have used this back then!

  13. That sounds like just what I need. It’s impossible to get anything done with the kids at home. To know that they are entertained and safe would free me up!

  14. Wow this sounds like the perfect service. I could actually use this so I’m saving the info for later.

  15. I don’t have little kids anymore but this would be very helpful for moms for the holidays!

  16. I’d love to be able to occasionally get a sister, but unfortunately, it probably won’t be likely because I have to have someone who is also a professional nurse because of my daughter’s healthcare needs. Frankly, I’ve given up on the idea of going out with my husband for date night.

  17. This sounds like a great concept! I’m sure my sister and her husband would love this.

  18. I love that there are great alternatives for working parents. This would have been perfect when my son was a baby.

  19. Wow this is a great idea. I think it would be so helpful for parents to have access to this kind of resource!

  20. What an amazing resource! I know the Holidays can definitely be a time when any parent just needs a day off – or even a few hours!
