Recent Testimonials

"McKenzie provided gentle and thoughtful care during the fuzzy first days of our twins being home and us adjusting to being a family of four. She was knowledgeable and kind while she encouraged me and helped me build confidence in my ability to care for two tiny people at the same time. McKenzie was helpful in managing our goals and making everyone comfortable. She was the first person I thought of to care for our third child when he was born and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any family welcoming a baby to their home."


- Melissa G.

“McKenzie was an absolute lifesaver when we came home with our second baby. She took wonderful care of our son, and also took time to check in and take care of us (I may have burst into sleep-deprived tears when she asked how I was doing on her second visit). McKenzie was incredibly kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable. She discussed ideas to help our son with us and was very receptive to any ideas we had. We felt like it was a team effort to help him sleep well. McKenzie was flexible and super responsive to contact as well. We wholeheartedly recommend her to all of our friends and would definitely hire her again if we had another child. Truly the best investment you can make is giving yourself and your partner sleep while someone wonderful takes care of your child.”


- Devin F.

"McKenzie at Austin Infant Care is wonderful. I initially had her babysit for my 2 year old and she has since cared for my newborn as well. McKenzie is smart, reliable, and most importantly, has good judgment. I trust her completely, which is such an important thing when looking for childcare. She is patient and attentive to the separate needs of both of my children. I have been lucky to have her help and give her my highest recommendation."


- Angeline D.

"We hired McKenzie to accompany us on our family beach vacation to care for our infant and we highly recommend her travel services. She followed our schedule and was pleasant to have around our extended family. During times when she was responsible for multiple toddlers, she handled it great and everyone was happy and healthy. My wife and I were able to spend quality time with each other and our toddler on the beach without being tied down to a newborn nap and feeding schedule in the house. We will definitely use her again."

- Kyle D.

"I'm not exaggerating when I say that McKenzie was like our guardian angel! She flew across the world to help a mother in need. I had just given birth to my firstborn and had a really rough time. I couldn't walk because of an injury to my knee and my daughter had reflux and was allergic to regular milk for babies so even breastfeeding did not go as planned. I was devastated. I didn't feel joyful or excitement about starting my mom life. Instead I felt a lot of anxiety and fear. I said this to McKenzie and she immediately booked a flight. I was so grateful even then. McKenzie changed me, changed us. She listened to my sadness and didn't judge, she held Elizabeth and helped feed her and take care of her. I had time to take a nap, recover and just be me again. After a week, we even went outside with the baby. I felt at ease and for the first time I really enjoyed being a mom and my anxiety and fear began to fade. Finally there was room for love and excitement. I had the most nutritious meals, a happy kiddo and some time to spend with my husband. I can't even put to words how grateful I am for McKenzie. We had her with us for 2 weeks and even then we quickly felt like ourselves again. She became a part of our little family."
