No one to watch 2yo

Im basically a single mom with no family around, I’ve never let anyone watch my toddler. If I go into labor will the hospital allow my toddler to stay in the delivery room or do hospitals have childcare centers? Will the hospital allow her to stay overnight with me?

    If u have time, look for someone u and ur kiddo can get comfortable with. Even if ur kiddo is allowed in the room; it’ll be better for someone to look after her so u can focus on having a safe delivery without having to divide ur attention and energy two different things.

What do you charge as a Babysitter? What are babysitters charging these days?

    Depends on experience and age of babysitter. If you have a ton of exp, then you can charge 20/hr or more. If you’re a college student, then some would do for $12 or even less.

    We have a family friend that was watching my son. She asked for $500 per month. She would watch him maybe 3 or 4 times per week at most. We got lucky when she volunteered since she wasn't working. He also got home cooked food from her. But definitely heard $20/hr minimum

Giving Birth and Childcare

Why do I feel 100x more emotional about having to leave my 2 year old for a few days to give birth than the actual process of giving birth?! 😭

    Girl I just had my 5th and still feel that way!! I hate leaving my kids. I send my husband home at night because I'd rather be alone than think about then waking up and being sad

    Jennie! Yes that will totally be me!!! I’d rather be at the hospital alone than have my baby be put to bed without us :/
