I have a friend who wants me to keep her baby once it's born. Like all day while she is at work from 7 to 4. What's reasonable rate to charge her?

If it was M-F, I would charge about $100 a week.

The lady who watches my kiddos occasionally charges me $20 per day per kid and it doesn't matter if it is a few hours or all day. Another lady used to charge me. $15 for both for 4 hours or $15 each all day.

Depends on a lot of factors. Is it a close friend? Do you need the money?
