How much do you pay for childcare?

I don't know how people do it! My in-laws pay 800 something a month!

  • I pay $600 a week but I have 8 kids living with me. The only ones requiring care are my 5yo and my 9yo twins and now my newborn twins, but I am a SAHM so the nanny is more of a mother's helper.

  • The cost of daycare is one of the reasons I'm a SAHM. It would cost more than our mortgage.

  • I'm a senior, but I hear my DD saying most all of her pay goes to Daycare but about $120.00 a pay and she hates to be working, but they need the little extra she makes. I told her to watch a couple of kids instead, but one of her own is high maintenance so she really doesn't want to watch hers and someone else's all day.
