Waking hours £15 per hour sleeping hours £10 per hour. So @ £145 (if your baby woke in the night the hour would be £15). Don't forget if we work as nannys if you pay us cash in hand then we have to declare this income for tax , so 20% of this is tax. I think people think if they are paying a babysitter it's ok , pay cash, no tax. But unless you are a teenager or student who doesn't use all your tax allowance it would be fraud to do otherwise.
Wow I work flat out as a night nurse 12 hour shift bathing bedding tending to 60 residents and earn £140 p/n wouldn't be worth me going to work & paying for a nanny however...I may retrain as a nanny ☺️
I think that people asking 120£/15£ for 12 hours are a bit cheeky. That is a maternity nurse price.
I would ask 50 pounds for 6.30 until one childwake up ( I would be honest about when the baby woke up ;) ) then £10 per hour.
So if the baby wakes up at 5.30, it would be 70 pounds. If the baby wakes up 6.30, it would be 60 pounds. If your baby wakes up at 7.30, we would be both lucky and it would be 50 £
If the baby did wake up in the night I wouldn't charge more. I would just ask more for the next time (if tehre was a next time).
I mean, seriously, yes it is a responsability to be there, you can't leave, what if the baby wakes up blablabla. £120 is abusing for proxy parenting. Not everyone can afford that (or should afford it if the children sleep).
Ohreallydear I am a maternity night nanny and charge for my time so I could be working for a family with a baby waking every hour or equally a baby/child who sleeps most of the time. I doze rather than sleep as always listening out for baby/child therefore am not being paid to sleep.
OhReally I don't feel it is cheeky to set a price what you are worth. Like east mids I mainly do maternity work. I also don't sleep. I don't seek out babysitting as I prefer to have met the family, have a contract etc. I haven't actually babysit yet in my self employed work but if I did an overnight I would charge this rate. Of course there are cheaper options. It is up to the family to decide what level of experience etc they want to pay for.
