How many times have you tried to book a last minute babysitter? As you’re probably (painfully) aware, it can be a frustrating experience involving dozens of phone calls and potentially no result.

Luckily, UrbanSitter babysitter profiles now have badges that show a number of handy stats, including response time. You can see how quickly a sitter normally replies — in 24 hours or even 1 hour!

In total, there are three brand new badges that sitters have to earn by using the site:
<Response Time Badge>Booking a last minute sitter? Choose the candidate with the fastest response time.

<Repeat Families Badge>See how many families have booked the sitter more than once. Repeat business is always a good sign!

<Friends Badge>A well-connected sitter will refer you to friends if they’re unavailable for a job.

It’s also now possible to bookmark sitters to quickly access their profiles anytime. Just click the Bookmark link below any sitter’s photo and they’ll appear in your dashboard or when you “Sort by Bookmarked.”
