  1. Selene M. says

    My children are all grown, so I wouldn’t be using the website, unless it was to refer others to it who are seaching for resources.

  2. says

    It’s not rare that I need a baby sitter, it’s just very rare when I can’t find one! Between my parents, my sister-in-law, cousin, aunt, and friends I usually can always find a sitter…..but when one of them is busy ironically they usually all are!!! lol

  3. Marci W. says

    I would consider using the website when we move. Right now there is no need but I think when we are moving and setting up our home I will really need it.

  4. says

    Background checks are so critical! I found that to be the case especially when I used to coordinate child care for my church. Thanks for sharing this info.

  5. Darla says

    My kids are all older so I don’t need it personally, but would be happy to share about them with others who do.

  6. says

    If I had kiddos when I moved here I definitely would have used eNanny! Now I live very close to my MIL, so probably would only use it if something happened to her and she couldn’t watch the boys. Nice to know something like this is out there – would definitely encourage those new to the area to use it!

  7. Kristie says

    We’re fortunate to have a lot of family and friends around if we need someone to watch the kids, but I’d definitely use the site if we were to have to move for some reason :-)

  8. Michelle H. says

    I hate asking my mom to babysit on weekends since she works too full-time. I don’t have anyone else that I can rely on when I need a sitter and I worry about finding someone I can trust. I like that they do a background check (something I can’t do); that would ease my mind a lot about hiring a sitter.

  9. says

    I’m hoping to break out into the real world and find a job outside of the home again. I will need to find a reliable person to watch our kids while I’m working!

  10. Kelli P. says

    I have totally need of this service! I have to be on bed rest for 4 monthes when I’m pregnant and if we were to have another child, a nanny would be a neccessity to be able to take care of my other two! Thanks!

  11. says

    We just made a move across the country and we left all our beloved babysitters back home. would be a great way to find a safe and reliable babysitter!! :)

  12. says

    We don’t have any kids, but we sometimes watch our nephews, and occasionally they get “in a bind” needing someone to watch them. It would be interesting to check out

  13. says

    We are fortunate to have a group of possible sitters due to the kids being in daycare, but once they are out of daycare, I’m worried we’ll have trouble finding/keeping sitters anymore!

  14. Yvonne says

    With an upcoming deployment, I think finding a nanny is top of my to do list! I would love a site that made that easier.

  15. Jessica Bleasdale says

    I would use it to find a reliable, trustworthy babysitter

  17. Jenn says

    I’m getting to the point in my work-at-home business where I need some part time nanny type help. I’d be looking for someone to fill that role with this service. I love that they do the background checking for you!

  18. Jennifer N says

    I have a friend with twins and would share this nanny info with her- also an aunt in Chicago who is often looking for good childcare.
    (My kids are big enough to care for themselves!) :)

  19. Vickie Couturier says

    I would use it for my grandchildren,mine are all grown but im sure one of them would have use of it for sure

  20. Juliana Palmcook says

    I am sure my siter-in-law could use this website-she has three children and a single mom trying to better herself by pursuing an early childhood, education degree.

  21. says

    I’d love to start a regular date night with my hubs, but babysitters are hard to come by. I’d love to find one that knows what they’re doing, and is trustworthy and reliable with my kids!

  22. says

    What a great giveaway any mother would love this! I have been researching Nooks vs Kindle’s. Any feedback from others would be nice I am thinking about getting one, is one more kid friendly than the other??

  23. Tabathia B says

    I would let my cousin use for her daughter since she has a hard time finding a sitter or use for my daughter for an hour or two

  24. says

    I found my first nanny using eNanny Source. It was a very good experience since they provide great nanny hiring tools and had a large number of qualified nannies. The also had excellent customer service which is surprising for an online nanny service.
    Thanks for the chance!

  25. Melissa P. says

    I hardly ever get to go out with friends or to mommy events, etc. because I am a single mom. I really need to find someone who can watch my son so I can have some mommy time a few times a month.

  26. Margaret Smith says

    What a great resource.
    I would use this when I’m in need of a Nanny for my kids. This is really a wonderful idea.
    Thanks so much.

  27. says

    its awesome that there is something like that out there, I don’t need it my boys are grown but I am going to share this with my daughter-in-law it would be a great tool for my grandson

  28. Barbara says

    to get in contact whit my family the i just got to meet i was adapted. this is the happiest year of my life….

  29. Joanne Schultz says

    I am past the age where I could use a service like, so i would pass their information on to people I know who have a need for such a service.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  30. kelly nicholson says

    Leave a comment telling us how you would use

    i have no children,but ill pass on the information to people that do..ok?

  31. Amanda Sakovitz says

    I’m going to be working full time soon and once I have kids I will definitely be interested in using this service to find a part time nanny

  32. Yvonne H. says looks like a great site, it’s something I would recommend to friends, family and co-workers who are looking for a nanny.

  33. Ashley T. says

    Husband & I: 8 years. Last Date: Can’t remember! Solution: Date nights-but military family so all of our family live 4+hours away and we don’t trust the idea of just anyone as a ‘babysitter’. Enannysource seems to be a great source to create a stress free and much needed date night!

  34. Caroline M says

    Enannysource would help me and my relatives find reliable nannies deserving of the important task of watching our kids.

  35. Liz F says

    enannysource would be a great way to find reliable nannies. I work full time and have such a hard time finding somewhere that I am comfortable leaving my little one.

  36. alsvegas says

    i would use it to find a a nanny to watch my niece’s 2 wild out of control kids so i could get some peaceful sleep for once :/

  37. Catalina K says

    I would recommend the resource to the colleagues who have children and may sometimes feel overwhelmed when they need to attend classes or other college-related events.

  38. Just Coupons says

    I think I would use during crazy times like the busy holiday season! Part-time help would be excellent when I have so much to do.

  39. Sue H. says

    I’d use for my sister so she could have alittle more time to herself.Thanks for the great giveaway!

  40. Nissa says

    I think it would be difficult o find the right nanny on the internet, but maybe enannysource makes it possible.

  41. LOIS PAYTON says

    I can’t make up my mind if I would keep it or give it to my daughter, GOD BLESS AND KEEP YA’LL SAFE IN HIS LOVING ARMS.

  42. Diane B. says

    I signed up for your RSS feed to my Google Reader and for email to this email. I also signed up for a free trial of ENanny for my son & daughter in law so they could have a break. Thanks for the chance to win a Nook.

  43. Jill says

    I’m a stay at home mom and my son is old enough to watch his sisters if I need to go out somewhere. I don’t really see me using this service, but circumstances can always change. Also if I know of anyone who is in need of babysitters, it would be good to have.

  44. Susan Ladd says

    I would use for my many small grandchildren. I want to thank you for this awesome sweep and hope to win :) Thanks !!!

  45. Marcia Goss says

    My kids are adults now, but I will certainly recommend this to my friends with children and grandchildren.

  46. SHAYNA says


  47. Denise B. says

    We never have a need for babysitting services. I’m either home with them, or they go wherever we go.

  48. Elizabeth says

    Since my mother in law moved to Florida, we are short on babysitters. I would try to find the right fit for my three sons.

  49. Heidi Gail says

    I would use it to find help for my daughter. She just went back to work and her 2 year-old might be better off with a nanny than with day care.

  50. Leslie W says

    I would use it to find a reliable person to watch my daughter for date nights. It’s very rare that we leave our daughter with someone we don’t personally know, so this sounds like the perfect back up plan in case someone we knew was unable to watch her.

  51. Felicia Chartier-Plastini says

    Who wouldn’t want to win a nook? I’d refer others to the site but my youngest child is 15 so I don’t need a nanny. However I’d make a good one.

  52. MARY CARMEN says

    I would recommend the site to the many people I know that are always looking for quality child care.

  53. Rosanne says

    If we were unable to babysit our grandson I would suggest this to my son for a vacation sitter although I’m wary of strangers watching them

  54. Mary A says

    I personally do not need it but I will tell my dd and dil about it. I’m sure they could use a babysitter from time to time.

  55. tamar says

    I would recommend it to friends. I am on a local mailing list of over 1400 families and they are ALWAYS looking for nannies.

  56. Tina Renee Barker says

    I’d probably use to find a reliable sitter when my regular wants days off.

  57. ACMommy3 says

    This resource would be awesome because we don’t have family or friends nearby to help out! So maybe Date Night could happen again 😀

  58. valencia williams says

    I could use it for my 2 children My huband works but I would love the oppurtunity to go find a job. I am just afraid of leaving my kids with any one so the nanny service could open up positive doors

  59. Crystal F says

    Hubby and I could really use a date night since it’s been years since we’ve been out without the kids. That’s how we would use it. lol thank you!!

  60. Ellie W says

    This website would be really helpful for my son and daughter-in-law. I usually watch my grandsons but this would be handy if for some reason I was not able to.

  61. Richard Morris says

    this would be very helpful if i needed a nanny once i graduate from my graduate-level program and have a full-time job

  62. Michelle Small says

    To find a baby sitter for our kiddos when we want to spend the night out.
    sometimes have problems getting one for our four kids.

  63. ANGEL JACKLYN says



  64. April J says

    I would use the service for my 6 year old son to be watched while my husband and I have date nights

  65. Toby Pollack says

    would love this prize and i will refer my children (who have children of their own)
    to this website.

  66. ellen says would be a great way to find safe and reliable people for my nieces when their folks have to be out of town- I dont trust a lot of people with the girls!

  67. Tian H. says

    I would love to find a reliable nanny for my daughter when we have a movies or date night with my husband.

  68. Nadine L says

    Would use it to help my niece find a nanny for her daughter. She is going back to work full time and is very picky about who will be watching her. Would take full advantage of the background check they do to find the right person. Hopefully put her at ease

  69. Jessica hays says

    It is rare that I need one, but it would be great to know where to get go when I do.

    jessicaahays at hotmail dot com

  70. Tiffany Hearn says

    I would use this to find a babysitter for my three kids. Thanks for the great resource!

  71. Tara Woods says

    I would recommend this to my brother who has three young daughters.

  72. clynsg says

    I wouldn’t use it unless I was required to do some research for finding a nanny for my grandson.

  73. Lyndsey R. says

    I would use it IF and WHEN I could afford to find a reliable nanny.

    lyndsey.rullman at hotmail dot com

  74. Georgina says

    My Niece is graduating HS this year and this would be a great graduating for her to take to college! Good luck everyone!

  75. Danielle says

    This seems like a good way to find competent child care providers for your children. This would simply the process of applicants for someone.

  76. missy says

    I think it would be fab. to have a nanny to help me out around the house once I have multiples, but with just one and being a stay at home momma, I don’t have any use for one :)

  77. melissa says

    I would use it to help me and my girlfriends to find a sitter so we could have a girls night out a day thrifting

  78. Margaret Gabriele says

    This would be a great idea for my daughter. She is a college student who works with children and is looking to work as a nanny

  79. Shari says

    A relative just had a baby and I would pass it along to her so that she could get info on nannies.

  80. Rosey says

    Our son is about to start Kindergarten and I can count on one hand the number of times we have gone out because we don’t have a reliable sitter. This would be great for finding one.

  81. says

    I have a hard time trusting anyone with my kids, so the background check would be a nice tool to use. Use the site to find a quality babysitter

  82. Leanne Hill says

    I would use enanny to tell babysitters in my area about so we can get more local people on it

  83. Tonya Dean says

    I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere. They couldn’t help me but it would be nice.


  84. R Hicks says

    would use it when we want special nights out alone. Like they screen well

    brich22 at earthlink dot net

  85. Deborah Hogue says

    My youngest child is 19 so I wouldn’t be using ENannySource myself, however, I would definitely refer anyone looking for a caregiver to their site so that they would feel secure in who is watching their little ones

  86. Roxann says

    I would use ENannysource in helping my daughter choose the right person to take care of my grandson.

  87. Molly Bussler says

    I would use the to find someone that I can trust, when I return to work. Thank you

  88. Ashley Morrissey says

    Expecting my first child in September!!

    -Ashley Marie Morrissey

  89. tracey byram says

    I would send the link to enannysource to my daughters. They would have use for a nanny occasionally.

  90. Kat Emerick says

    My children are all grown also but I would refer others to it who are seaching for resources.

  91. Katharina says

    I’d use it to help my nephew and his wife find a reliable sitter… and possibly a nanny in the future, too.
    Katharina angelsandmusic[at]gmail[dot]com

  92. tallcapp says

    I don’t need it personally, but I think that it is nice to have a service that can provide reliable babysitting. It is hard to find.

  93. amyc says

    I have no children so I couldn’t use the service, but I would refer it to my sister-in-law who has 4 children. It would help her find a good nanny that has been pre-screened.

  94. says

    Never really though about it, but I’d give the site a look over. My wife and I are busy with 8 year old triplets. I don’t know if we could afford a full-time nanny, since my wife only works part time (at a job… home is a full-time job in itself). And it’s hard for her to trust someone she doesn’t know well with our kids, but maybe it’s time to look at a site like this.

  95. Vinitha says

    Looks like a great blog, so I have subscribed by email! (Doesn’t hurt to get another entry in for the giveaway! :D)

  96. Victoria R. says

    This is ingenious! Sometimes our caregivers can get scheduling conflicts – this is great!

  97. Geoff K says

    I’d use it to help my co-worker, a new mother, and her husband in their search for a nanny or sitter for their son when they both go back to work. Thanks!

  98. Heather W says

    The site would be great for parents who don’t have relatives close by
    Lovefool827 (at) yahoo (dotcom)

  99. fawn strunk says

    thanks for the giveaway… I would not use this service cause we live on 1 income for a family of 5 and would be very hard to make ends meet.

  100. Rochel S says

    I have sisters that live nearby so Im usually ok. But is good to know where to find if I need a babysitter.

  101. Kristen Vitale says

    I love the idea of 5 minutes for mom, since as a mom we rarely get 5 minutes. : )
    But, when I do I read, so a nook, and a Barnes and Noble gift card would be awesome!!! Also, the screening of anyone who cares for my children has always been a daunting process. So, much appreciation for anyone who makes it easier.

  102. says

    I’d find a regular sitter so I could get out once in awhile! I’ve been away from my 15-month-old only 3 times since he’s been born: one for a haircut, one to Wal-mart, and once out to dinner!

  103. says

    I think this is an awesome tool. I would use it for my friend to help her find adequate care.

  104. Jessica K says

    I would use the E nanny source to find a part time care taker for when I have to work or go to class.

  105. meme says

    This would really come in handy once in a while for my 3 kids when I have to pull weekends or other times when family are not able.

  106. says

    You just never know when you need that last minute person to help watch the little one and I am such a person who has a hard time trusting sources. This would be an awesome source to help relieve some worry.

    Also, I am a RSS Subscriber.

  107. Jessica says

    I would give it as a gift to a friend that has a 11 months old so her and her husband could go on a date!

  108. Cassandra says

    I subscribed by RSS and I would use eNannysource to find someone so me and my DH could go on date nights again!
