My sister's sister in law is due next month and I agreed to start babysitting after her maternity leave. Well I have no idea what to charge. It would be for a total of 24 hrs a week. I don't want to charge too much but I don't want to under charge either. HELP!Answer Question
Call around to some of the local daycares and find out how much it would be for an infant part time. Once you have a good average then I would personally knock off some since it is family. For example, if the average for a part-time infant is $100 a week, then I would only charge $75-$80 a week.
