this is a poll on how much you should pay a babysitter for watching your toddler

$12 upwards

I pay $14 per hour since my babysitter has sitted for my family for 4 years now.

$15 hourly because our sitter has been with us for a long time and because I have 2 kids and she is also sort of our housekeeper already. So it's a bargain really. I have to give her a raise soon!

My partner and I have a felxible schedule so one of us is always with the kids. But I do have a baby sitter that comes in regularly just to help either of us. So we pay her $10/hour.

My company's office has a day-care center on the second floor so I usually leave my kids there since it is more convenient. I also have a babysitter back-up for when my husband and I have engagements. I pay $14 per hour.

Wow you're all very generous or I'm stingy. I pay $6 per hour or $45 for the whole day. The babysitter I use is 15 years old. I don't use a professional service.

$6 per hour too. This is the going rate in the neighborhood. So I just follow but I give them a generous tip especially if the kids like them.

We pay something like $7 per hour but I always give a large tip coz I know how difficult my kids can be. We've had the same baby sitter for almost 10 years now. So far no complaints about the rate.

For our babysitter, we pay her under $10 an hour. My husband makes sure to pick her up and drive her home. Saves the trouble and fare of riding the bus or train.
