I'm in the process of registering and won't be taking on any full time mindess to begin with other then my baby nephew but I was thinking that an overnighter once or twice a week would be ok.

Anyone here do it?

What do you charge?
where do the kids sleep?
Do you have your own kids?

Any advice would be really appreciated.

I do it occasionally and charge an absolute fortune (because I don't want to do it regularly).

Kids sleep in their own room.

I have one DD of my own.

There are other people here who do it more regularly. I registered for overnight care back in the dark ages when we had a strapping fire officer come to inspect the house, to see if it was safe for overnight care.

I regularly do overnight care and also charge a lot as wouldn't be worth it otherwise. I charge £70 per night but for regular mindees who are settled with me, I charge £50 per night. My full policy is on my website in case that's helpful to you.

They have to have their own room when staying overnight. I have 2 ds myself and because I've only had young mindees overnight who use a cot, I move my ds2 into our room for the night (into travel cot) and put fresh bedding on his cot and that's where the mindee stays.


As a night nanny for children who sleep through the night I charge £100 from 7pm-7am and for those who wake at night (ie babies who need settling or feeding) I charge £12 an hr.

obv I am doing this in childs own home
