I work from home Thursdays and Fridays and am looking into hiring a "mother's helper" for those days. I breastfeed, so she'd essentially get three half-hour breaks during a 9 hour shift.
We live in a first-ring suburb - pretty affordable community.
I asked her what her rate was and she said "negotiable." Well, thanks.
Right now we pay about $105 a day for daycare three days a week. It's a really nice daycare and we totally could have found something cheaper but I really loved this place.
So, what would you offer the mother's helper?
