    Things have been going great that past two years with our nanny and share family. Now they are expecting. Currently, we both pay the same rate. How do we adjust with the addition of baby?

    Thanks for posting Devin. I have heard your question quite a bit.

    Obviously the expecting family will need to increase the rate they pay the nanny. You shouldn’t have to. Nanny share rate is typically about two thirds the single family rate.

    I find it easy to agree on single family rate and work backwards….

    So if single family rate is $15 per hour for one child, then it might be $18 per hour for two children. Family with one child would pay a share rate of $10 per hour (two thirds). Family with two children would pay a share rate of $12 per hour (two thirds).

    Or something like that. It is all about compromise and negotiation. Hope this helps!
