  • I paid $150 per week.

    as an infant, I had to supply diapers, wipes, formula/breastmilk and jarred food.

    Once DD was on table food, all her meals were included in the $150. breakfast, lunch, snacks

  • My daughter started going to the babysitter when she was 5 months old, and I pay $27 per day. She only goes 3 days a week for now. The babysitter also has my 3 year old 5 days a week. I work from home a couple of days. I can keep the baby with me and get work done, but there's no way I can work with the 3 year old, which is why he goes 5 days and she goes 3.

  • I pay 120 per week. like PP said, I supplied Bm and diapers, once he moved to table foods they were supplied. I actually still supply his food, because we're really picky, but that's my choice. If the sitter goes on vacation, we always know way in advance and I dont have to pay her. If DS isnt there I only have to pay half.

  • I worked at a Kinder Care for a long time and the price for infants was about $330 a week!! You had to supply diapers wipes and formula or breast milk. they did supply jar food and a crib for each child, but the price to me just seems absolutely insane!!!
