How Nightshift Working Mums Cope *opinion Needed* by shullygirl: 3:45pm On Jan 15
Hello Matured ones in the house,
What would you advise a single mother with a toddler who just got a nursing job to do..
Her mum is late, no family members and she will be needing someone to stay with her son when she is off to work on night duty..
She has to relocate because of the job, so no friends to help her when is away.

Thanks in advance for your matured responses

She is scared of getting a nanny/stranger to stay alone with her son.

It is quite tough but she must decide

1. Get that nanny
2. Ask workplace if they have provision for night creche
3. Look around for a creche willing to take baby overnight
4. Speak with supervisor and children wing of the hospital if baby could be allowed in at night. Afterall, he probably will sleep all through.
5. Reject the night offer for day so baby can be at day creche while mommy works
6. Kukuma leave the job and take care of baby until she finds a day job.

Motherhood is not easy, well done maami.
