DH is going overseas for work for a week. He usually gets up with the kids at night if there is an issue (which is uncommon but a few times lately as bubba is teething). I have health issues which prevent me from getting up at night. So I need some one to come and stay overnight while I am there from say 10 until 6. For 2 kids (3 and 1 ) how much should I pay? TIA

Overnight babysitter how much?

Night Nannies charges $235 per night :-0
Do you have much time to make arrangements? You could apply for in home care, but it takes a while. Do you have family/friends who can help?? Good luck :-)

Wish I got paid $200+ to get up to the kids overnight!! That's a crazy amount of money for an overnight sitter.
I would def be asking some family or friends to help out. I think $60 is very reasonable for someone you know to stay the night. I'm assuming your kids prob only wake a few times, but I guess it depends on how much 'work' is involved and how much of it is just sleeping.
Most close friends would prob be all too happy to help without being paid.
Best of luck.

I think I should be a night nanny... And they are to be paid in cash at the end of each night....

I would think $200 at a minimum.

Most baby sitters charge 20-25 an hour, overnight would be no exception. Unless you can find a friend to help out cheaper I would imagine it would easily be 200+

If its uncommon for your children to wake up, i would be asking a friend or even family member as thats gonna be a huge expense for you.

Family unfortunately will be unavailable at the time. Friends all work full time.

I usually do overnights for $100 which is usually a few hours that they are awake and then until morning.
Normally I charge $20 an hour but I used to discount my overnight work as I knew how expensive it was for the families and I was basically asleep anyway my families had shift workers etc

I would charge $100-150 if I only had to get up a few times a night (if that) $250+ seems very excessive and a big financial burden on you. Hope you get someone good and at a reasonable cost!
