From time to time, every child can fall under the weather. If you're looking to have an ill child taken care of, we recommend being transparent with the sitter ahead of time. Let your sitter know they'll be caring for a sick child, providing details as you see fit and appropriate.
Many sitters will still see a sitting through, though some may be uncomfortable sitting for a sick child. If your sitter chooses to cancel based on your child's illness, you should continue to search for a new sitter on Sittercity. We recommend continuing to be transparent about your child’s illness as you search.
