On all my advertising I say that I do babysitting as well but have not had any requests yet.

I don't have any energy to babysit after working. And like my weekends so I don't :D

I babysit as well as childmind, however mainly for the little ones family's I look after. Can be beneficial but definitely tiring at times (: good luck on your new venture if you go forward.

hi i babysit for some of mine. the parents drop them here and have done for a parent near me. I am just outside london and my nanny friends get £12-15 an hour so i charge £10 an hour so if they want me to do it i will. dont have too many evenings babysitting but when i do i get a nice amount.

We offer babysitting!

My older (17 and 19) teens usually do it - with me or dp as backup in an emergency / tricky situation etc - however, we support them and do it too.

I take my laptop normally and Kindle / a book and it's just like being at home once the children are in bed :D

i used to do agency babysitting for sitters , was a good crack a few years ago and would be out a good 3 times a week and at usually very exclusive homes , had a good contract with the owners of a certain jewellery tv channel in their 6 million pound mansion for over 1 year but they took on a full time nanny in the end , which they did offer to me but i couldnt commit having a family of my own
