How Otter works
Sign up, fill out your preferences, and tell us a little about you and your family.
You tell us when you need care and we'll connect you with a vetted sitter. Get matched in minutes for requests less than 24 hours out.
Our babysitters come straight to you. After care, we send you a link for payment.
We pop in so you can pop out
We can take requests up to a month out! Tell us about when you need care and we'll take it from there.
Emergency? Sick nanny? No problem, we can help! We can fill requests with up to two hours' notice.
Spend quality time with that special someone. Our sitters come to you so you can enjoy your evening together.
Events can sneak up on you - whether it's work or school. Our sitters can show up so you can, too.
What parents are saying
Super smooth and easy
It was great. Super smooth and easy. Our sitter asked great questions to ensure she had access to neighbors in case she couldn't reach us. Very thoughtful. We will definitely use Otter again!
It was perfect
I’m very happy with everything and will be booking again soon. My daughter adored her sitter from the first second! And she was sound asleep when I got home. It was perfect.
The kids had a great time
The kids had a great time. Our sitter handled everything in a very professional and responsible manner, at the same time authentically having a good time with the kids.
