I just need opinions. I have been asked to watch a 7 month old little boy next week. I do not know this person, my cousin just referred me. I have never done any babysitting or anything for pay, so I do not know how much to charge. But I could really use the money, as I am a stay at home mom and I hate constantly asking my husband for spending money! I want it to be enough to be worth my while but I dont want to overcharge. I have a 3 month old son, so I will have him and the other 7 month old.
Anyway just wondering how much I should charge per hour. I need to do hourly because the mother is not on a set schedule and could be working anywhere from 3 to 10 hour shifts and she doesnt even know how many days she will need me yet. Could be 4-7. So...$8/hr? 10? No clue! Help? Thanks!!
