    Do you know any teenagers who babysit? Not to leave them home with but to come along with you, perhaps take the kids to a park etc for the duration of the appointment.

    I have taken my Niece to things with me to help me out, Wiggles concert, party at a park etc, not appointments as they are likely to clash with school but on other occasions it works well, she's 14 & I've done it since I had 2 kids (DD is 21 months) hubby works away so if often away when these things happens so she is very handy!

    If it's school holidays could you ask the eldest teacher?

    I ended up speaking to the place and they will take my son in on his own for these appointments and just catch me up quickly at the end. I do prefer to be in there but it's only a handful of times so that's okay.

    I tried looking up on that findababysitter site but there weren't any for when I needed haha.

    Thank you for the suggestions though everyone. I will definitely look into all these options as a more regular thing as my hubby has been thinking of picking up a secondment that would have him on the road a whole lot more. So having a backup in the future won't hurt.
