What's a fair amount to pay an adult baby-sitter?

I will be hopefully starting a job soon and will need a baby-sitter 4 days a week. What's a fair weekly amount to pay her? It will probably be 6-8 hours per day.

  • I baby sit a 7 year old and I charge $20 a day but I give food, snacks, crafts, and drinks. We also go to the zoo, movies, out to lunch. I also teach them to cook, bake, etc. I think I do alot with them. While its school time I charge $10 a day for after school care, but still do some of the activies. I am getting a 5 months old and charging $20 a day even though I will not be "feeding" him the food I buy.
