It all started when TikTok user Danielle Mitchell left a babysitter in charge of putting her baby to sleep, as she enjoyed a date night with her partner…

Mitchell revealed that she was nervous because the babysitter was the first person, besides her and the child’s grandparents, to watch their son alone.

Before the couple left, the mom said that the babysitter rocked her 10-month-old baby to sleep within fifteen minutes…

So she and her husband went out for their date night.

But then at around 9:00pm, her motherly instinct told her to check the cameras to see how the babysitter was doing.

Initially, she thought the babysitter might be listening to an audiobook but to her surprise she saw no movement and realized the she was asleep.

“We watched the cameras to see if she would move and she didn’t,” Mitchell said in the video, and further explained that the babysitter being asleep led to her “panic as a mother.”

The mother then asked her followers if it was “normal” for a babysitter to fall asleep while they’re watching kids…

Some users reflected that the babysitter wasn’t in the wrong for falling asleep, adding it is fine if the baby is asleep.

“If the kid(s) are asleep, it is normal for the babysitter to fall asleep. However, the monitor should have been on and turned all the way up,” one person commented.

However other users agreed with Mitchell and wrote that babysitters in general “should not be falling asleep” when a child is their responsibility.

The viral video has now surpassed over 1.4 million views.
