  • all depends on your care provider. the daycares in my area charge about 175$ a week for an infant, full time, and we paid weekly, on mondays. my babysitter charged 80 a week for the same thing, i paid on fridays. you will have to go around to several different places to get price estimates and to see which places you'd feel comfortable leaving your baby

  • Depends on your area & the care provider (in home, state licensed, larger daycare, church daycare?) A friend of mine charges $20/per day but doesn't take infants. One lady I knew paid $90/week and had to bring her own food/drinks/diapers. Sometimes they want you to pay for 5 days,even if you only bring them 3.
