I babysit my friend's 21month old for $16 a day ($80 a wk) . I provide 2-3 meals, plus snacks, give bathes, take to the doctor, go get medicine, & I take her w/ me everywhere I go. If I eat somewhere other than at home, I will either share or get her something of her own. I keep her anywhere from 11-11.5hrs a day. My oldest DD (5) has started going to therapy 3x wk, my youngest (3) is in a home-based program through head start. Anything either does w/ their school, I have to take the baby w/ me, same for errands,etc. Plus the baby is getting ready to potty train.
When money wasn't tight, it wasnt a big deal; but things have changed (for both me & my friend) and I feel like with all I do, I should make at least $100-$120 a week. What would you normally charge for this kind of schedule?
