Does anyone know of any lucrative positions available to work at home? I have a BA and experience in MS Office suite and currently spearheading several projects at work! I am grateful for my job I just miss my baby!
Anyone else having a hard time juggling work and motherhood?!?! I feel guilty when I’m not with my son and before he was born I know I’d give my all at work, and although I still do my job as I should, I feel guilty I don’t put in the same effort and attention I used to. I called out of work today because I had an ER scare with my son last night and even though nothing comes before him and I k... More
I'm working 3rd shift and cant get any sleep. When I get off work in the morning it's draining me. I'm desperate for a little help just so I can sleep.
My 2 year old boy won’t let me go anywhere without him I could walk 2 feet away from him and he starts crying and just wants to be with me. Even if he stays with grandma or daddy. He wasn’t like this before until after he turn 2. Is this a stage ? How can i handle it? I mean I’m okay with it i know he’ll outgrow it but i just want to know if there’s ways to handle it since I’m going back to wor... More
I just had surgery last week and I feel like my breast milk supply has decreased. I use to make about 4 oz each time I pump whenever my LO is not hungry. Now I am only making 2 ounces if I am lucky. I am drinking plenty of fluids. What else can I do to help me increase my supply?
I am leaving my 3 month old baby girl to a great nanny but I am so upset, feeling that I will be missing so much. I hope she will be fine and don’t feel I am abandoning her.... How did you handle going back to work and are you able to spend some real quality time with your baby ?
So we recently relocated & I've been a SAHM for most of our sons first year. Luckily my in laws relocated too so our son is able to spend time with his grandmother while I’m at work when his daddy is working. My question is, how do I make this transition easier for both of us! Understandably he is very attached to me (food source / main source of comfort), but between the move & his... More
So I’m back at work since having baby #2. She is 4 months old. I’m back full time now for the first time in 2 years...yikes!!! I was taking my first born to my husbands aunt for baby sitting so there was never any fear or worry about who I’m leaving my child with. Unfortunately she had to let us go and we now have a new babysitter. We have family that takes their children to her but she’s not f... More
I eat a very healthy diet. Haven’t changed anything. I’m buying fenugreek tonight when my husband gets out of work.. I really hope this gets me back to where I was.I don’t know what am I doing wrong..
FTM here! Looking into trying out working from home while being a full time mom to my baby early next year, he will be 1 yr old then. We don’t have any family nearby to help us & my husband & I agreed that it’ll benefit our baby if 1 of us is the primary caregiver for at least the first 2 years or until we can afford to send him to a daycare / preschool which I heard gets cheaper as the...

I'm torn between two daycares. I dont have the fathers support but I need to start working again in a few weeks. Both are walkable one is a little further and uphill but less expensive. They are both pricey the cheaper one provides diapers but may be a harder commute to work.
I was lucky enough to be able to stay home until my baby turned one. now I have to go back to work and I am looking for daycares. The dad is giving me a really hard time and constantly trying to be cheap or talk me out of daycare and its really stressing me out. It's bad enough I have to leave baby in a daycare. Anyone else deal with this.
I work full time and care for me 2yr and and am expecting another child. Lately, I’ve been feeling like everyday is just the same ole same ole. Of course there’s the part of me that feels guilty because I know how blessed I am, that there’s no drama per se. But, I’m just curious how others spice up their routine.
So I have a wonderful boyfriend of whom I have a beautiful daughter with. I work full time and take care of business at home. I decided after utter chaos at work that I needed a mental/mommy alone time day. My coworker said I shouldn’t use my vacation time for selfish needs and should use that time to bond with my child. In her eyes I’m an awful mother because I choose to work. She stopped work... More
While at work, is what I mean. I use pump bottles and then pour into baby bottles when I get home. Then any extra milk during the week I put into bags and freeze. Just wondering if it’s worth the extra time/money? I’ve only returned to work for 3 weeks now. The washing and drying and packing of pump parts and pouring and measuring of milk each day is getting annoying lol
