I have to go back to work soon, and need some one to watch my baby girl on Saturdays. But we can't afford the $10/hr everyone seems to want. So I'm here to ask if anyone can help or knows of someone who can? And just to be clear, yes I have cut my hours as much as I can right now, I have considered quitting my job and doing babysitting or working a daycare, and no we don't have any family or friends who can watch her, also as far as I know we don't qualify for assistance. So what can we do?
One more thing, how can I increase breast milk production in a short amount of time? So far I only make enough for her each day.
It would be nice to make extra breast milk, but our bodies only make "enough" for our children's intake. Increasing it takes weeks of hard work. You will have to do all the daily feeding plus adding a pumping session (even if u just get .5 or 1 extra ounce at a time) in between all reg feedings.
You sound a little frustrated :( I hope you work everything out. Consider joining the Baby Sitting Co-op on here. You can trade for free. Or consider watching a friends baby for a few hours a week and then pay her for the extra hours. 10 id really cheap, but I know it can add up. Good luck!
