Lauren  provides exceptional service with her agency, Merry Pop-Ins. I have been a long-time, repeat customer and have been delighted by each of the kind-hearted sitters I have had the pleasure of meeting. I trust each of them whole-heartedly and my children love them, too! I will be using her service for all my future sitting needs.

My husband and I came to New Orleans from out of town on a whim and thought we could use the babysitting service that the hotel recommended.  Unfortunately because it was so last minute there was no-one available.  We were about to give up on a date night when I found Merry Pop-Ins online.  I sent an email and called and within 30 minutes I received a call back and was set up for a sitter to come an hour or so later.  The sitter was wonderful, educated, kind and at ease with my kids who were a little under the weather.  I was very impressed by the prompt service, qualified and competent care as well as the simplicity with which I was able to trust my child’s care.  My 2.5 year old was smitten and talked about her night with her “friend” all day the next day.  Since I stay at home, this was my first sitter experience for longer than an hour and I couldn’t have been happier with the results.  I will definitely use this service again.  I only wish they could expand to more cities so I could use it more often.  Thanks Merry Pop-Ins!!

As a working mom, when one of my kids gets sick, it’s always a mad scramble. A friend told me about Merry Pop-Ins, and I filed it away in my brain for such an occasion. It didn’t take long for me to reach out, and I was thrilled with the babysitter who came to stay with our son. After a couple of similar instances, with equally terrific sitters, it occurred to me that I could use this service for fun occasions too – not just emergencies. Since then, Merry Pop-Ins has transformed our social life. Whenever we need a sitter, even on short notice, we get someone great – our kids have absolutely adored them all. And Lauren tries to repeat the sitters so that they and the kids form a relationship. We have even set up a standing after school arrangement with one sitter, so it doesn’t have to be just a one-off request. I can’t say enough about Merry Pop-Ins and the quality and professionalism of everyone involved! Thank you, Merry Pop-Ins!

Hi Lauren, 

I just wanted to thank you again for helping me with my babysitting needs while my family was in NOLA last week. Annie was fabulous, and as you know, I called her again on Sunday. I would highly recommend her to anyone- my boys thought she was wonderful, fun, and sweet, and I myself truly enjoyed meeting her. We chatted for nearly a half hour before she left Sunday night. 

I just wanted to give her a rave review and to thank you again.  I hope Merry Pop-Ins does wonderfully this year. It’s a great service!

All the best,



Thanks so much.  I am SO glad I found you. Susie raves about the sitters. Susie is fantastic & I trust her sitter choices!!!!
