First time Mums Lock Rss

Hi Kj

I'm a first time mum to a 3 month old baby boy. I am 24 and have been married for 4 years in november. I am currently on maternity leave. I am not sure if i want to return back to work, I am a Director of a childcare centre and have been told that I can not return as director if I don't work full time. If you would like some advice on child care don't hesitate to message me.

Here if you need some one to talk to

Hi all

Congratulations on returning to work girls. I have to decide by december if I would like to return. Would love to as I miss the kids but would miss my little man even more if I did. Beside the centre I work for doesn't have a space for cooper if I did return I would have to wait about 6 months for a space, so much for looking after staff.

How are you girls coping with work and home life. I'm worried I won't cope if I go back.

Hello! I'm a 1st time mum to Jamie who has just turned 6mths. We live in Rockhampton. I'm on 12mths maternity leave. I'm planning on going back to work a couple of shifts a week. I work shift work and I'm going to try and get my lovely boss to let me work only day shifts. If not oh well I will have to find something else. My partner works out of town, so that makes things a bit hard sometimes.
Hi Jamies mum

Love your tigger where did you find him. its good to hear from other first time mums, by the sounds of it you have a good boss. Hope he/she lets you work your day shifts. I bet it is really hard for you especially with your partner working out of town.

Hey coops mum! Thank you! I really can't remember what site I got tigger from. I'm a big fan of tigger! Yeah my boss has been really good to me. He's a family man so he sort of understands, hopefully anyway. I've got some family and really good friends who help me out which is really good at times. Jamie has been a really good baby so far except for last week when we were both sick with the cold. We get by... sometimes!
Hi

I'm a big fan tigger as will. Thats sounds like you have a great support net work behind you. You poor things there are lots of colds around at the moment, cooper has a bit of runny nose as well, But hopfully it doesn't turn into a bad cold. Well I have my fingers crossed for you that your boss lets you have those hours you want.

Cooper is only 3 months and has been a really good baby had a little bit of a bumpy start to life but he has really caught up, thank goodness.

Hi There,

I am a first time mum to 6months old daughter and I do not want to go back to work until my daughter is atleast 1 year old. I would like to watch her grow. And for me its not worth going back to work as with the amount i earn and the amount i will be spending on her childcare and my transport , at the end of the week i am not left with anything. Well for now will enjoy time with my little monster.

Hi Riasmummy

I am in the same boat it doesnt seem worth while going back with the amount i would spend on child care it.and I agree ejoy all the time you can with your daughter as they grow sooo quickly

Thank you! Hopefully your little guy doesn't get the cold. I really had no idea on how to treat it but in the end I got some really good advice. I found this site to be a really good support network as well. Wow 3mths old, doesn't time go fast.
Hi there KJ!

I'm a first time mum, and loving it!! I amgetting married in May 2008!!

Fortunately DF and I own a company.
So I do all the book-work from home.
I am also a hairdresser/make-up artist/beautician/nail technician- so these are also easy for me to do my friends and family from home!!

I do know that usually you need to book babies into childcare pretty early to get a space.
And yeah, definately take the time to get to know the carers! (I used to work in child care too!!)

Look forward to chatting more!!
xx
