New York City has the highest babysitter pay rates across the country.

Babysitters in New York get the highest pay rate in the country, according to a survey by the Urbansitter website.  One child costs an average of $15.34 per hour, add $1.50-$2.00 for a second kid, and about $3.00 for a third.

Most sitters have to pay their own way to and from home, as 56% of parents don’t pay for transportation.  Most parents “round up” when tipping and 27% never tip.
