Overnight/weekend babysitting

Recommended Posts

We've never had an overnight babysitter. How are they paid, what have you paid? Hourly, by day/night? What if they're only there overnight or part of day but not all day?

I have a very helpful, responsible 13yo who usual babysits for us now for evenings out, but we won't leave her overnight (obviously). Other kids are 9, 5, 2...all sleep through the night. How does this roll $wise?

Ummm, we drop them off at an aunt's house and pay for pizzas, movies, and bring over a bag of snacks/junk food so it's a treat for everyone.  Do you have family or close friends nearby that you could do that with?

Okay, this is helpful. This would be staying with kids with a very responsible college student (who has babysat for us regularly) overnight several nights and my mom filling in some during the day. Maybe for 2-4 days, while we're out of town.

Sounds like setting on an agreed daily/nightly rate is best.
