First Overnight, HELP!!

Hi guys , so I live in Texas . The family I am working for currently is expecting a mother child on the way so I'm set to work overnight when the mother has her baby .
They have a two year old boy and I can't for him 3 days a week from 8am-6:30pm . I get paid 11 an hour , but with this overnight I have no idea what to charge.
We figured a flat rate would be best since we don't know when she's going into labor. What do you guys think would be safe bet ?

their schedule is crazy! mommy work all night so she leave at 6pm come back 8:30 am! dad works all day lets say 8am-8pm so...

Overnight Advice Plus Random Venting

Hi All! I hope you are enjoying the springtime with your charges! My work family recently asked me to do an overnight for them. I have done a couple of overnights in the past, and they did not give me any extra compensation. D. Boss actually asked me before the second overnight, "You don't expect us to pay you after the girls are asleep, right?" I felt so weird about it because I know that it's typical to get extra compensation, but not necessarily an hourly wage through the night.

Recent Divorce, Mom not coming home at night

I have been working for this family for 2 1/2 years, she has a teen on the autism spectrum, pretty severe. The first year she was very jealous of me and would 't take new ideas or direction and I get it and have been there before, but over the last year she has really started to trust me and things have been good. Recently the parents have gotten divorced, and now the mom thinks she can go out and party all night. The Dad is out of the picture now. I'm on salary, get health insurance, is taxed and she pays for my cell phone. And right now for every overnight I earn a half day of vacation.

24 hour shifts for 4 or 5 days...question!

I have been a nanny with the same family for just under two years. Currently the girls are 5 months old and 2 years old. My normal hours are 8am-5:30pm. I have stayed over night in the past while the parents have gone on vacation, I only had to watch one of the children since obviously the other hadn't been born yet. The parents and I have worked it out to when I get random extra days off I still get my normal weekly salary and then they can use those hours they paid me for as "comp hours" for future babysitting or overnights like when they go on vacation.

What do you think I should charge.

So I came across a listing close to my city for childcare and it reads as follows: We are looking for someone to babysit two children overnights Monday thru Friday night from about 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. (on Fridays 8 p.m. until 10 a.m. ). My husband works overnight and I (unfortunately) am active duty military stationed in DC this year. I have two boys, a 12-year-old and a 2-year-old. The only requirement/request we have is for the baby to be dropped off at daycare in the mornings. Otherwise my husband does all the cooking and cleaning.
