My daughter is 2 years post seminary, and she would like to start babysitting overnight. She has babysat for years and has good references. How much is it normal to charge for a night, and what would you pay for a mature responsible girl with her own transportation?

I paid $200/day, but she was available from about 2pm-9am every day. I think normal hours are shorter, and then the daily price is shorter too. (Like 5pm-8am for 150)

In the babysitter's house, from 3pm to 9am, mid range 120 per child per night, though I've heard of anywhere between 100-150. Less if a few days (Some offer 100/night if 3 days+, 550-700/week).
If She's going to them, she can charge more, especially if it's more than 1 child.

Thanks!
What if it's only the night, for example 9 pm to 9 am?

No that’s why there’s a range. I’m giving you the average. If it’s one sleeping child $120 makes sense. If it’s 5 rambunctious children that she needs to put to bed and put on the bus then $175 makes more sense.

(Wow if I got paid for bedtime every night I’d be very rich.)
