  • Most importantly, it would depend on the age of the child. How old is this child?

  • I would say if it was one child maybe about $20 a day. I would add at least another $5 for each additional child.

  • Depends.... is she supplying the formula/food for the child? I'd say 25 a day, but be willing to work with her. She is a friend afterall. but dont be too lenient.
