What is the going rate for babysitters?

I'm about to start babysitting for my neighbors. It's going to be about 8 hours a day 3 days a week. It's for 1 child about 4 weeks old. . . any suggestions would be a great help. Oh, if it helps, I'm from Monroe, MI. Thanks. . .

  • Here in Missouri where I live, it runs from about 35-45 dollars a day. When I babysit, I get paid 15 dollars an hour but I only watch kids with severe special needs so you can not go by what I get paid
