What is the normal rate for babysitting?

I have never trusted babysitters with my first daughter. Yes I was a paranoid parent lol. So, what would be the normal babysitting rate if it involves a 3 year old and an infant?

  • $10 is about right, I pay a girl $100 for 2 nights a week, its about 3-4+ hours, and I have 3 kids.
