I agree with this.

Right, but she'll be getting paid to sleep too. That sounds perfectly reasonable to me. An hourly rate doesn't really make sense in this case.

That sounds more than sufficient. I never understand this "by the hour" thing. That's for short term babysitting, not a day, night, or weekend rate.

I pay my sitters $100 a day (or $10 an hour if it is less than 10 hours) when they have my kids all day, so I'd be more likely to go with $250.
