Can I get some feedback from people on the going rate, perks, etc. for nannies in the Los Angeles area? My husband and I live in West Hollywood and are expecting our first baby in February. We both work full time and I will go back to work after the baby is born. We are considering building our our garage into a liveable unit for a live-in nanny, but on a brief glimpse of rates online, it seems that live-in nannies cost almost the same rate as a live-out nanny, which seems odd if you are covering room/board and food. Anyway, I'd love to hear what the rates are like etc. in the L.A. area.
Thanks for everyone's input!
