Muddy says: No more babysitters falling asleep on the sofa while your kids stay up all night (yes, that happened to me.) Kowalah are here to put the fun into sitting

Love a lie-in? Check. Fancy a night away with Mr Muddy/my best buddies/on my own? Check all three. Would love the Mudlets to have some fun when you’re gone? Not sure they deserve it but…oh, go on then. Well, you can thank us ‘cos here at Muddy we’ve found the most cool baby-sitting service ever. With an emphasis on the kids having a great time, these sitters will play, bake, read, throw water balloons…generally be anything but dull with your brood.

Kowalah helps parents find, book and pay for trusted and interviewed sitters across the Cotswolds, but it’s much more than that – download the app and you’re off, booking school pick-ups, day time help, after school homework, evening sitting or, best of all, overnight stays. Off to a wedding? Ascot? Henley? A 40th birthday party where you reeeaaaallly don’t want little ones climbing on your bed the next morning? These guys are for you.

Kowalah is currently available across the Cotswolds from Bristol and Bath in the South, to Cheltenham and Banbury in the North. Uh, will you have mine for the week, please?
