6 month old babysitting?

How much does a 6 month old cost to babysit where you are? How much would it be for daycare for a 6 month old? A person I know is saying that they will give me 2$ to baby sit but I think that is too low. I don't want to be "greedy" though.

  • The going rate is around $10/$15 an hour. She's being cheap.

  • OP HERE:

    Really? 10$? I was just going to up it to 3.75$ since that is what I got for babysitting two little girls that are my friend's kids (each). Wow...

  • I charged $5 an hour for the first 4 hours, and $3 an hour after that.
    If it was a regular Monday- Friday thing, $3 an hour, $5 an hour after 10 hours.
