Babysitters Wanted: Sign-Up Today on!

April 27, 2011

Families who have children with type 1, juvenile diabetes often have great difficulty finding someone to babysit who understands the dangers and details of diabetes.

SafeSittings is a nationwide website that makes available teens with type 1 diabetes as babysitters for children with diabetes. These teens have been managing their own care for many years. They understand the dangerous highs and lows inherent in the disease and have the skills to test blood sugars, give insulin injections, adjust insulin pumps and treat hypoglycemia.

Teens who are interested in putting their skills and experience to good use should post their availability at SafeSittings.

They currently only have ONE babysitter listed on this site for Dallas, so please sign-up TODAY if you are interested!

If you register, please let JDRF know by sending an email to Jessica Tresp at so we can help promote this website to our families.

SafeSittings is a not for profit organization. Fees for babysitting will be determined and agreed upon on a case by case basis through discussion between each family and babysitter. Transportation expenses and/or time may also be considered. Names of babysitters will be provided to families when they contact the service at SafeSittings.

Important:  This information is provided to you strictly as a resource. JDRF does not evaluate specific programs, corporations, organizations, institutions, or medical care providers. Thank you for your understanding.

Founded by parents of children with juvenile diabetes, JDRF has one mission: To find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. In the meantime, JDRF is committed to improving the lives of those living with diabetes until we find a cure.
