Does anyone know of jobs to have where you can stay at home with your baby or work with the baby with you?

Does anyone know of jobs to have where you can stay at home with your baby or work with the baby with you? When I have my baby I'm going to have to keep her with me. We can't really afford daycare and if I work then it will take my whole check just to pay the daycare plus I want to be the one raising her and I want her near me so that I know shes ok.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.

  • I sell on ebay....when I list consistantly I do roughly $120-$150 a week in profit....some weeks I do less because i'm just too busy to list items. But I get the bulk of my inventory from Thrift shops and yard sales. I sell mostly used kids clothing, but other things as well. When I do list an average of 15-20 things a week I spend maybe 6-10 hours total working that week.
