Curious what do you charge for overnight care ?

I have one child who stays overnight one night per week.

The normal hourly rate is £3.50 per hour and he is here 8am to 6pm in the daytime, so £35.00. On the night he stays I charge from 6pm to 8am at £3.00 per hour, working out at £42.00 for the 14 hours.

I felt it was right to charge a lower hourly rate as he is asleep most of that time. His Mum had been expecting to pay around £50.00 for his overnight hours so was quite happy with £42.00. My rates include all meals and snacks etc.
