Typical hourly cost can run from $50/hour for a part-time individual to $200-300/hr for a full-time certified professional design consultant, both for in-house and for shopping trip time.

If you do it flat-rate, then you would typically (based on national averages) pay about $3000-6000 for a full interior design for a bedroom, which would be billed in addition to furnishing and accessories and contractors (painter, flooring,etc) at cost plus any delivery charges + 20% or so. I presume that $3000-6000 average is for master bedrooms, so a childs would probably involve a bit less precision in selection, so would be somewhat cheaper, I would think, unless this is a case of the mother going back to her second childhood and designing the room more for her memories and dreams than for the duaghter's.

As a father with 2 grown daughters I would question using a designer for this job, though an hour or two designer consultation with you and your daughter might be in order. We found there was nothing our daughters liked more, or remember more fondly, than being allowed to paint their room as they wanted, decorate the ceiling, choose the carpeting, design and have me build furniture for it, and then accessorize the furnishings and room it to their liking over the successive years. They also got a big kick out of going to the Salvation Army or Value Village every weekk or so and picking out a curio or doll display case and china cabinet or highboy when one that caught their fancy came in, and customizing its installation to suit them to display/store their dolls, figurines, and memorabilia.

Of course, if you are talking a baby or toddler, not much help there except toddlers and above will have fun picking out colors and furniture, but then they are going to want to redecorate it about age 11-12 or so anyway, so what it looks like now probably matters a lot more to you than to them before that age.
