What is the best way to find a nanny and babysitter?

Hi Moms,

I am looking to take the plunge and return to work after spending the last few years raising my daughter Nicole and my two sons Jason and Brandon.

I am looking for a babysitter and possibly a nanny as well. What are the best options for finding the right person? I have heard of web services like Care.com or Sittercity, does anyone have any experience with these sites for finding a good nanny/babysitter?

How did you find your last sitter? Should I pay my sitter in cash or set up a more official payment method?
This whole process is very daunting so I appreciate any experience with this process you may have.

Thanks so much ;)
