Anxious and freaked out about childcare!

I’m a first time mom, both hubby and I work and when I returned to work my company was flexible and willing to work with my schedule. I would in the office half of the day then hubby would drop off baby with me and I would work from home rest of the day but now I have to be in the office full shift 3-4 times a week. We’re considering childcare, our baby is 7 months but I’m freaking out! I can’t... More

    Tough choice to make. But you do what’s best for you & your family. There’s no size fits all, every family is unique & you know yours best. Regardless of what you end up deciding, you’re giving what’s best for your child.

    I ended up staying home because my entire paycheck was going to daycare. I ended up finding a job to do from home so it was a win win. If you’re worried about your child not socializing there are free things you can be apart of to encourage socialization.

    That comes to $15 an hour which sounds on the low end to me. The national average for nanny pay is $19/hour. Do you get reimbursed for gas, mileage, or anything else? I'd say you should bring this up with the family and ask for a raise.

Sibling and different childcare

I have a 2 YO and stayed at home with her until now. I am about to start a new job and also thinking about a potential sibling in the next two years. This time I won’t be able to stay at home and will only have 3 months of leave. I feel like this is not fair and I feel bad about this potential situation. Any experience?

    For us, daycare was too expensive (2.5k/month) and had super long waiting lists. My 4m old is in a nanny share now and it's the best arrangement I can imagine. The other family has a 1 year old and surprisingly they are playing together. We interviewed the nanny and found someone who is truly incredible! Basically, for half the cost of daycare, I hired 1 person to be with 2 kids (and only o... More

    Very interesting to hear from your experiences. I am definitely thinking about the nanny share. It might just be challenging to find another family and the good nanny
