We will need to go to a party for a few hours and there is no one from our relatives to take care of the kids. I wonder what do parents usually pay per hour and is the price going to be different during the weekend. We might not afford it so I will have to stay at home.

Not sure what others pay but our baby sitter charges £7.50 per hour, she's got childcare qualifications though and her rate is the same for for weekdays and weekends.

Hope you can find someone and get to enjoy your party smile

We pay same as zoley on our (rare) nights out. Hope you find somebody!

Thanks, that helps. I see what she says. Buying a gift plus the baby sitter would cost us around £100.00. I would rather stay at home and save money for the baby sitting. Still will have to buy a present.
