Trade babysitting with families in your neighborhood.
Rather than paying for a sitter, this app will help you coordinate free sit swaps with your friends. I sit for you. You sit for me. No one pays for sitting anymore.
HOW IT WORKS
• Send friend requests to your trusted connections.
• Create a sit request & hand select people you want to notify.
• They offer if they’re free or ignore if they’re busy.
• You accept the offer that works best for you.
• Drop off your kids and enjoy your free time!
Part of a local organization, club, school, or neighborhood? Create or join a Group to see the members list and easily send friend requests to those you want to swap sits with.
Want to make new friends? You can search parents within 5-50 miles. Suggest a playdate, meetup at a park, get to know each other, and build a relationship. Then send them a friend request and start swapping sits.
The app auto-calculates and transfers points as you give and receive care to keep it fair.
Use our calendar to coordinate playdates, mom’s night out, group meetings & more.
SHARE. DON’T SPEND.
This app was created by moms, for parents everywhere. We’re bringing village back, so you can bring date night back!

So Far So Good
We've just gotten started on it, but it seems to be by FAR the best babysitting co-op option out there. The point system is fair, and creating and accepting requests seems easy. I think there could be some polishing done on all the different kind of social connections you can create (groups versus friends versus angels versus paid, etc.) and I wish the commenting had emoji support. Otherwise I'm glad to have this tool available to me!
Effortless to swap babysitting
I first downloaded Komae to swap babysitting within my MOMS Club co-op, but I love that I can also swap sits with friends outside the co-op as well, using a universal points system. The option to send the sit request only to my chosen friends or groups is great—sometimes my kids don’t click well with a friend’s kids and it’s nice to avoid the awkwardness of not choosing her to sit. 🙂
I would like the “directions” button to allow me to open in Google Maps, not Apple maps (Apple maps is awful in my region!)
I saw that another reviewer thinks the positive reviews are fake and the app is “pointless.” 🤷🏻♀️ I am a real person living in the Midwest. Komae is hugely helpful to me because I have friends who use Komae. If you don’t have friends, or if you don’t tell them about Komae, I can see how the app wouldn’t be useful to you yet.

Hey there! So happy you're enjoying Komae and the versatility that it can bring when growing your village of friends and groups. Always thankful for helpful feedback like this!
I’ve enjoyed using this app with friends. We are getting our village going, and it’s been slow, but exciting to watch. The concept is more successful, as you build a larger/local village.
As we’ve been using it, whenever we notice issues or glitches, or even have had ideas, I’ve emailed them to the creators and they are very responsive. Sometimes they already have the suggestion on their to-do list, or they haven’t noticed it and fix it! That’s pretty cool.
