PORTLAND branch founded 2014


I attended the University of Washington where I was fortunate enough to begin working with the original branch of Spilt Milk in Seattle and had the opportunity to run a learning garden teaching kiddos how to grow their own food. After college, I moved to Portland to pursue post graduate education in birthwork, midwifery, and clinical herbalism. Once I had relocated, it became obvious to me the Portland area would greatly benefit from the community I had grown to love while working with Spilt Milk Seattle. Thus, in November 2014, Spilt Milk Nannies Portland was born. Whether you are a busy parent looking for a community of amazing care providers or an experienced nanny who is excited to build relationships with many local families - I am excited and honored to welcome you to SMN - PDX!




Best nanny service ever!

I have been using Spilt Milk for over a year. I have two young children (3 & 1) and a dog. We have nothing but positive things to say about the nannies who come to take care of our daughters! Nicolette and her team have saved us time and worry. I no longer have to wonder if I will be able to find a skilled nanny when I have to work or my husband and I want a night together. I AM SO THANKFUL.
Wonderful service!

As a nervous mama of two, I was hesitant about SMN. Hard to believe now! Honestly this service has changed my life; I suddenly have several care providers whom I trust, and my children genuinely look forward to spending time with them. Special shout out to Mara, Melody, and Kelsey! Thank you for providing the community with such a valuable service, I tell anyone who will listen about Spilt Milk!
Thank you!

What a wonderful experience! After fretting and searching high and low for great child care for our toddler, we were fortunate to come across Spilt Milk Nannies. The experience has been amazing from the very start, with Nicolette handling our initial inquiries with the utmost care and professionalism. As any parents are, we are very particular about who cares for our daughter - and with Spilt Milk our expectations have been exceeded at every turn.

I have been thoroughly pleased with the superb balance of professionalism and flexibility this company has to offer. Nicolette holds a wealth of child development knowledge and is a great communicator, going out of her way to ensure a positive experience for families and nannies alike. Spilt Milk is a win-win for busy parents and experienced nannies who seek to work with a diverse pool of clients.
