See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Hi, I just joined this group and am looking for advice. I'm finding it harder to fit in work with my three kids (especially since the birth of my third 7 weeks ago). I work mainly from home and have had my mom watch my kids sometimes for a few hours once a week, but other than that I am waking up early and working late after they're asleep and try to fit it in during their quiet time. I rarely get breaks and I'm getting burnt out!
One of my jobs is getting more strict and will require me to work uninterupted, but I'd rather have my kids home if I can. I'm thinking of hiring someone to come for a few hours 2-3 times a week to help. I could take short breaks to check in on them and be there to care for my baby, who is still getting into a schedule with naps and eating. She is mainly bottle-fed though so looking into getting a sitter away from home could work, or I could keep her home and get a sitter for the older two. I think hiring a sitter would be well worth it because I would be able to work more hours. Thoughts or advice?
