Just wanted to thank you for your help last week. Krysta was really great with Jonah. Will definitely reach out for help again in the future!

Alisa C.

I recently vacationed in NYC with my husband and 5 month old daughter. We didn’t want to be stuck in the hotel room every night after her bedtime, but I was hesitant to use a sitting service.
I eventually decided on pinch sitters, and was very pleased with our experience! Lisa personally answered my emails and was always quick to respond.
We were assigned Anastasia R. and Misha S. Both were wonderful – upbeat, friendly, and experienced. I felt comfortable leaving my baby with both women. They were also both very quick to respond to my texts checking in.
I would absolutely use this service again, as well as recommend it to my friends!

Anais T.

Finding a sitter, who is caring and trustworthy is a tough feat. I thought finding a sitter in NYC would be almost impossible since we’re not locals. I was recommended this agency by a friend. Lisa and her agency were really amazing! My children had never been with anyone but family but we were in town for a family trip and my husband and I had tickets to a Broadway show. I was nervous but since reaching out to Lisa, I felt like we were in good hands. We felt very comfortable after meeting our sitter and my kids loved her. It was an amazing experience and we now can’t wait until our next trip to the city to use this agency again!!

Andrea W.

Lisa, I just wanted to send an email and thank you so much for Krysta. She was awesome and the girls loved her. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I look forward to working with you in the future. Best, Andrea

Christie W.

Lisa, I just wanted you to know that my daughter had a great day with Keyleigh P. yesterday! She was just perfect and everything I could have asked for in a sitter for my daughter. Thank you for picking her for us! I got to say I was nervous going in with being from out of state and for needing to be gone 12 hours, but Keyleigh put all my nerves at ease. It was a wonderful experience! I also told some co-workers in NYC about your agency. Thank you again for providing such excellent service for someone so important to me and helping us to be able to take this trip together! Sincerely, Christie W.

Claire C.

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say — Janai is amazing. Thank you so much, Claire

Dee Dee C.

We were in the city to see a show and needed a sitter to take care of our 3 month old.  A parenting facebook group suggested Pinch Sitters.  Lisa, the owner, was very responsive and professional.  I ended up emailing her a few times, changing the exact hours we wanted.    She was great, responded very promptly each time!  We were a little anxious with this being out first non-family/friend circle sitter.  Madison arrived 15 minutes early and was great with our little one.
I would definitely use again, the next time we’re in NYC.

Gianna G.

I have been working with pinch sitters from the time my daughter was 8 weeks old. As a work-at-home mom, I often need flexible, reliable childcare that can work around my ever-changing schedule.
Lisa’s roster of pinch sitters has been the perfect fit for daytime coverage and date night with my husband. All of her sitters are thoroughly vetted and I have never once felt uncomfortable leaving my daughter in their care.

Gregg S.

I called for a sitter five hours before an event as a family friend had to cancel babysitting my six year old twins. Lisa, the owner, responded to my voicemail promptly and said she would try to find a sitter. She did find one and the sitter, Haley, came to our hotel. Haley was on time and had a very pleasant demeanour. She put us at ease. My children liked her very much. I would definitely recommend this company.

Gretchen P.

Hi Lisa, Just wanted to say that Ajjy is lovely and was wonderful with Charlotte. I’m so glad I found Pinch Sitters – I’ll definitely be using you again. Thanks and Happy Spring! Gretchen

Heather Q.

We had such a good experience with Sarah that I had to share. She was prompt and made me feel comfortable right away. Landry can be shy but she seemed to go right to Sarah and having the same sitter twice was so nice. It’s so hard to leave your children with someone you don’t know but Pinch Sitters made it easier. We will definitely be in touch for our next trip and will recommend your company to our friends as well. Thank you so much! Heather

James T.

I just wanted to say that Sarah Day was absolutely amazing!  Our boys loved her and she was so accommodating.  We will absolutely utilize again when we come back to town and will let our friends know as well. Regards, James

Jen L.

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to reach out and thank you so much! Because of you we were able to see the most amazing Jeff shows. There are so many things we can now do because of your service and are so excited to use you in the future. Hali was AWESOME and exceeded all expectations. Thanks again. Jen

Joe A.

Hi Lisa, I wanted to let you know that Phoenix and Keleigh did a great job last week.  Both nanny’s spent far more time with my 1 year old daughter and she really took to them.  My almost 3 year old son was with them a few hours also in the afternoon and after a brief adjustment really did well also. I will certainly be reaching out in the future if we need back up care. Thanks, Joe

Kaisa F.

Hi Lisa, Just wanted to say that Keleigh was just wonderful with our girls. We could tell as we were just a room apart for most of the time and for the time we were out, we felt very comfortable leaving our girls with her. She really engaged with them, playing and having fun conversations. We could hear them talking and laughing all the time. She also kept them on schedule and got everything done in time and helped them tidy up after each play. We’d definitely like to work with her again when the need arises. Our girls are already asking when they can play with Keleigh again…Thanks again, Kaisa

Kathryn K.

Thank you for setting us up with Janelle today… she was really great and that she was very active and engaged with our daughter.  Please pass along our thanks to her as well!

Kathryn Z.

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say that the kids loved both babysitters especially Melissa, thank you so much! Warmest regards, Kathryn Z.

Laura B.

Lisa and her crowd of baby angels are worth every penny.  I’ve used Lisa’s service quite a few times in between nannies, and I have yet to have a less than wonderful experience.  They’re always on time, totally open and welcome to your direction as the parent.  Couldn’t speak highly enough!  Special shouts to Ashley K, Abbey, and Renee!

Lauren G.

Claudine was wonderful and we are so grateful to have found you! Lauren

Mark F.

When we decided to plan our trip, we weren’t sure if we were going to bring the baby (11 mos old).  When we knew we were, I asked our hotel (The London) in advance who they use as a service.  I then looked at the site and reviews, and reached out to Lisa to set up 3 nights of babysitting.
The first and second night were with the same person (Janelle).  She was GREAT!  Super friendly, responsive and on time.    We decided to add a 3rd night, and it was with Elizabeth.
Couldn’t have been happier – she was also GREAT!
They were both very responsive, updated us while we were out, and I would ABSOLUTELY use this service when traveling to NY in the future, and strongly recommend them to anyone needing a NY sitter.

Mary D.

Thank you! Ajjy is here and a complete gem. he is in good hands. Thank you again! I announced a recommendation on Bed Stuy parents Facebook page and all the friends I’ve been texting with all morning for sitter recs. Pinch Sitters for the win!!!

Melissa P.

Hi Lisa! Just wanted to say how we had a great experience with both Angelique and Janelle the past 2 days! Thank you so much, this has been a lifesaver. We will definitely be in touch again!!

Michael W.

I wanted to rave about Krysta. She was phenomenal with Lucas. So patient. So insightful. Understood the mind of a toddler. They got along sooo well!

N. Ferrarone

Thanks so much for last night, Lisa. Hali was great and we would certainly use her again. Thank you. Nick

Newyorkmom M.

Amaaaazing!!!! Lisa, the owner of Pinch sitters personally arranges your sitter and the sitter was absolutely wonderful. Thank you PINCH SITTERS because you truly helped me when I was in a “pinch.” I had a situation that seemed impossible and Lisa saved the day! WOW! You know when even the sitter is talking about what a gem of a person that Lisa is it’s the truth. I could rely that she had a vetted, reliable sitter and Gee was that and MORE! Highly Recommend! Professional, Prompt, Polished… Perfection!

Rebecca S.

I have been using Pinch Sitters for about 8 years, and am constantly amazed at the way this agency finds great sitters.  We have had sitters who are writers, actresses, playwrights, and many other amazing things – but all of them have been great. They are professional, warm, fun, pleasant, responsible. It is easy to make arrangements, and easy to work with Lisa. I definitely recommend Pinch Sitters; I count on them for both random events where I need a sitter, and for “bridging the gap” between nannies or during nanny vacations.

Rishi P.

Hi Lisa , Just a note to say thank you to yourself and Melissa. She turned up on time and was very friendly and professional. I have no hesitation in using your services again in the future. Rishi

Sebastian H.

Dear Lisa, Thank you very much again — Keleigh was great, our daughter had a wonderful time with her. We really appreciated the help on such short notice.

Suzanna F.

We had an excellent experience with this company. We stayed in New York City in a hotel in Manhattan and the agency was able to send over a very competent and professional sitter to watch our two children while my husband and I went out. I would highly recommend this company. Sitter was Sian.

Tarquin G.

Wonderful and timely service! I used this agency while traveling to NYC for a weekend. The sitter was kind and made me and my daughter feel comfortable right away. It worked out so well for my last minute work event.

Valentina S.

I sent a request via Yelp and within 4 hours Lisa provided a quote for a sitter the very next night. The sitter was pleasant and did as I asked, getting the children room service, watching a movie and reading to them before bed in our hotel room. Best last minute babysitter babysitting service I’ve found.
