MOMMY MIXER

Check the website for the next Mommy Mixer in Denver. 15% shopping discount. Frazzled moms, rejoice. Founded in 2003, MommyMixer® connects b.usy families in need of part-time babysitting with high-quality college students. At each hour-long Mixer, moms personally interview a number of candidates and leave with an A+ list of potential babysitters. Many candidates are not only used for babysitting, but also act as family-assistants: running errands, helping with organization, planning and producing birthday parties, etc. For information about Denver Mommy Mixer, email denver@mommymixer.com.

Best of all, it's a bargain. Costing just $100 for first-time families (free for sitters) and taking only an hour, our Mixers are a time efficient, cost effective alternative to part-time nanny placement services, answering classified ads or using online sitter database services. Whether you need help 20 hours a week or if you just need an occasional babysitter on hand for a quick break, MommyMixer can connect you to our exclusive network of great sitter candidates who want to help you and your family.
