Brittany Davis is AMAZING! She has kept my daughter since she was 6 weeks old and is currently still doing so. She’s honest and reliable. She had taught my daughter SO SO much and I couldn’t be more thankful for her. My daughter absolutely adores her “BB”. I wouldn’t trust my daughter with anyone else. 1000/10 highly recommended ❤️ - Gracie Hammett
