SEATTLE branch founded 2011


I grew up in Long Beach, Washington. In 2011, while I was a student at the University of Washington, I found an ad for “flexible babysitters” with a service called Spilt Milk Nannies in the UW Daily newspaper. I joined the service as I'd had years of babysitting experience. I loved the experience; I was meeting families and building my own little community in a vibrant big city. I took over the business in 2012. I often say “I don’t own a business; I manage a community.” Having a small community you can trust is very important to me. If you are a parent I’d love to welcome you into SMN and help solve your childcare needs with access to my network. If you are a sitter please join me and I can help you find fabulous families to work for, all on your schedule.




Life saving service!

We love SMN and use the service as our primary childcare. I am an emergency physician with wildly varying hours, my husband works in tech with lots of travel and we have a 10 month old son. The sitter team in just incredible smart, reliable, flexible, excited to work and get outside. We have used some sitters several times but we also love the variety of faces and skill sets. 5 stars.

If you don't live near family: Rejoice! This is for you

If you are like us (dual-working parents without family nearby) then you know the struggle. We are new subscribers to the Spilt Milk service and used it when our current nanny took an extended trip. I couldn't have been more pleased. The nanny's were professional, lovely, followed our instructions, and our son was happy. Plus the service was super easy to use. What more can you ask for?

Spilt Milk saves lives!

Well, maybe not actually saving lives..but certainly restores sanity! We had such a hard time nailing down sitters and nannies before being referred to this company. If it wasn't an unreliable person who was late or over priced, it was someone with a questionable background. EVERY SM Nanny that has shown up at our door has been five stars, all across the board. I am so very impressed with all the ladies we've had the pleasure of working with! Highly recommend!!

I have been with Spilt Milk since the fall of 2016 and have nothing but positive things to say about the company, the owner (Erin), my fellow nannies and all of the families I get to work with. As a college student, finding a job that is fun, flexible, and fulfilling can be difficult, but Spilt Milk has checked all of those boxes for me!

Interested in joining Spilt Milk nannies Seattle (Central)?
