    I paid my nanny S$550 for first few months and S$600 after my baby started taking porridge.

    Just wondering, do nannies entitle some leaves? What is the reasonable range? Any pay cut if taking more than a week consecutively?

    Thanks to advise.

    My next door neighbour (literally NEXT DOOR) wants to charge $800 for 5-day week....I am leaving my daughter with her for 2 days only... so that is about $300....is that too expensive? but she's really next door, so save us alot of hassle

    hi, it sure sounds a lot to me. market rate is about 500-600 depending on whether the baby is taking solids or not. but you do save on time and energy in transporting the baby.. anyone else around the neighbourhood who babysits? some people put up notices at the block lobby or blocks in the area, and then go to the nanny's house to take a look and do the "interview"... they can then decide if they're comfortable with the nanny and the home environment, and it's also within close proximity [​IMG]

    I know of a baby sitter who leaves near Serangoon MRT. I think her charges is around market rate. Planning to place my baby with her. She has more than 15 yrs of experience taking care of newborn onwards and I noted that she has a Diploma in Preschool Teaching. Feel better placing my baby with someone knowledgable. If interested, email me at jypan83@yahoo.com.sg

    What are your thoughts about giving an ang bao to nanny during Chinese New Year? Does anyone give your nanny an ang bao? How about their children? Is this a common practise?

    If you give, how much do you give? Does it depend on how long she has taken care of your child or the extra services rendered?
