Donna came to work with me for a few days to look after my 7 week old boy. She was very easy to communicate with and make arrangements with beforehand and was extremely flexible and accomodating to all my requests.
I was pretty stressed about the work I had to do and how I would manage feeding and pumping milk, but Donna made everything easier. She has a calm and caring manner, while at the same time being cheery and friendly. I could tell from the first second she picked up the baby that she knew what she was doing, it was obvious that she had years of experience.
I can honestly say that Donna looked after both me and the baby, she went above and beyond in every way. I really wanted to bring her home with me by the end of the few days. Any of my colleagues who met her commented on how brilliant she was, she was friendly and chatty to everyone she met.
I can't recommend her highly enough and I will definitely be using her again if I can.

We have used Donna twice. The first time I was really impressed that she won my shy 4
Year old over in seconds of meeting him! The second time she visited the boys were excited to see her and didn’t look back as we went out of the door! She is a lovely lady who is kind and really good with children. We will definitely be using her again in the not so distant future!

Donna looked after our 9 month old ar our wedding in June this year. We had spoken on the phone and then met the day before the wedding. When meeting on Friday I felt confident our little girl would be fine. She hasn't been looked after by anyone other than family for a short time but I knew Donna knew what she was doing and I felt quite happy handing over on the Saturday. I had planned on going to baby for evening feed and bed but on checking up on them around 5pm they were both fine and I left them to it. This was the best thing I did, I relaxed completely and wasn't worried in the slightest. I can be a bit of a worrier and mum does it best but I knew for a day Donna would really look after her and she'd be fine.
I gave Donna a little list of the schedule and any special bits. She listened to me, didn't make me feel like I was being an annoying mum which I probably was! She just asked what she needed to know and got on with it.
Donna was really professional, great communication and very polite. Would highly recommend her.

Donna is an absolute gem. Excellent at communicating. Warm and professional. And such a hit with my kids. The first thing my five year old said was “I had such fun with the lovely babysitter!” He is usually quite shy with new minders but Donna put us all at ease. We left her reading both boys a story in our air bnb whilst we disappeared to a wedding for 12 hours.

She brought extra play items I had forgotten to pack and really helped us out. The boys walked, played and were fast asleep when we got home.

Could not rate Donna highly enough. She is an expert in her field and you can just tell how much she loves children. Definitely recommend and would use again in an instant!

We had Donna come to our house to babysit our 18 month old boy while we went to a wedding.
We had a phone call with Donna and felt very comfortable with her, she reassured me on any worries I had.
Donna came round for a visit prior to the wedding to ensure our little one was comfortable with her, he's never had a babysitter before and warmed straight away. He was comfortable handing over his favourite toy within minutes of first meeting her and happy being held while we did a tour of the house so she knew where everything was.
This was a complete shock as our wee boy is cautious of his Grannies when they visit every fortnight.

We had arranged for Donna to come over to allow us time to get ready, our wee boy was clearly having a great time singing songs, reading and playing. He hugged us goodbye when we left and happily went back to Donna.
He did struggle to settle in bed but Donna gave him some extra cuddles and he slept right through until 7am.

I highly recommend Donna, I will definitely contact her again when I next need a babysitter.
