I know this sounds so silly, but really – don’t! Cloth diapers have come a LONG way from dish towels and metal pins wrapped sumo wrestler style. Before Aiden was here I was so fearful I wouldn’t wash my diapers correctly, I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the laundry, my baby’s skin would react poorly, the smell would fill our whole house, or it would just plain and simple be more then I could handle. In reality, it was SO much easier then I ever thought it would be. The learning curve is small and the rewards far outweigh the inconveniences.
I have a full-time job 30 ninutes from home and absolutely don't mind doing the extra laundry. I really do find it theraputic! I was every other day and have a stash of about 30 pocket/AIO's. I do have a couple flip covers and prefolds for if I really run low, but I haven't had to use a sposie in a LONG time. My daycare provider is also loving the cloth - she hasn't had a blow out or leak yet!
This is significant because, for four decades, women's labor participation rates consistently climbed, from 40.8% in 1970 to 57.5% in 2000. The phenomenon caused profound changes in American family, culture, and economy. The shift in direction has some people wondering whether or not the sexual revolution at work is over and what may have caused the change.

This article is FANTABULOUS!!! Thank you sooo much! It is very overwhelming trying to sort through what may or may not be a scam on-line. This is the first time I have found information that seems promising. I am looking to be able to earn enough to support myself (I do not have kids) since health issues make it extremely difficult to work outside of my home. Keep up your great work!
I love that I don’t have that inner battle of whether or not my working is a disadvantage to my family. I love that I have not missed out on any of his “firsts”. If my son needs some Mommy time, I can usually stop working for a few minutes and cuddle him. I get to ensure the food he eats is balanced (as much as a toddler will allow). I can throw a load of laundry in the washer between tasks. – Ashleigh
I’m looking for people to join my team with Advocare! It’s a great opportunity to get healthy (especially as the New Year approaches!) and make some additional money! I make a couple hundred dollars extra each month and save on my own orders! I feel so strongly about the program I’m willing to pay people’s start up costs!

Love all these ideas and the creativity of moms wanting to stay home and yet contribute financially for their families. Thank you for including all these ideas. I am a mom of four boys and have worked for Pampered Chef for six years. I love cooking, helping others develop a love for cooking and eating healthy! With the current trends in food and in women/men wanting to cook at home more than eating out, my business continues to take off. The benefits have been incredible. I easily earn hundreds of dollars a month and reap bonuses for staying active (from tote bags to jewelry to free products that I am able to give as gifts.) I always advise women I speak with who are looking for opportunities such as this to find what you are passionate about, make sure your husband is on board with it, pray and then go for it!

Then read our list of 15 Best Paying Part-Time Jobs for Stay at Home Moms.
I'm not advocating that a single parent should go on welfare or social assistance. What I am saying is that you need to assess your situation, do some homework and decide what will work best for you and your children. How important is their happiness and well being? How important is your own happiness? Your peace of mind? My sister's kids all love and thrived at daycare, my daughter didn't. I had to take that into consideration.
I started a business with four other moms and our teenage daughters – in order to teach them about business, marketing, fiscal responsibilities and in order to empower them with the confidence that they could help contribute tuition money for college. Christian Bling (www.ctbling.com) is now in 27 states with 150 Consultants after just a couple years. Our consultants sell hand-crafted faith-based jewelry made in Atlanta by struggling moms. The method is called social selling, and it combines home shows, social media, events, exhibitions, blogging, Business-to-business, fundraisers and networking. Christian Bling is retiring nurses, teachers and hairdressers (to name a few). Minimal start up cost is $199 for 7 pieces of jewelry (retail $600+). Visit our website to feel inspired to start your own jewelry with Christian Bling! 

After I had Logan (my daughter), I had to leave my day job due to Heath Reasons (RA). I joined a company from Monat and it has changed my life.  It is an all natural hair care line void of toxins which was important for me.  I just got back from a trip to Hawaii paid for by the company.  It has been an awesome year and continues to get better every month. I work from home and essentially from my phone.  Message me if you are interested.  

Being a Mom Entrepreneur If you choose to start your own traditional business, you’ll likely turn something you likely once did as a job into a service company from home. This might include bookkeeping, freelance editing, operating a mobile nail salon or pet sitting. My home-based business is writing for corporate clients, newspapers and magazines, which is a spin-off from the corporate communications jobs I held prior to having kids.
You need to cut spending, so start with the cuts that will offer the biggest payoff. Don't waste time driving around town to find the best price on frozen peas -- look at where you can make big changes. For example, housing is by far your biggest expense -- it's typically about 30 percent of a home-owning family's budget. Can you move to a less expensive neighborhood? Or downsize your digs? Would you be willing to? This leads to the next big consideration.

Hey y’all! I’m an independent consultant with Rodan and Fields, a premium skincare line that was started by the same doctors that created ProActive. I’m a stay at home mom and decided to join this business because everything is done online and they have a great business model! I devote a few hours a week to posting on social media, following up with potential clients and product training. If you are interested in earning $250, $500, or even more than $1000 a month I would love to share information about this business with you!
All in one (AIO): This can be put on and taken off a baby just like a regular diaper. It goes in the wash as one diaper. Some moms feel these do not get as clean for that reason, but diaper technology has been improving. Other moms love the convenience since there is no messing with inserts. As a downfall, however, these can take longer to dry, and some moms are hesitant to put PUL in the dryer as it can melt and lose efficiency.
It's one chunk of the day when you can generally expect to be able to plug away without interruption (at least not from your child). Whether your kid sleeps for one hour or three, use this time to finish assignments that require your complete focus and concentration, says Erin O'Donnell, a mom of two and freelance writer and editor in Milwaukee, who often schedules work-related phone calls during her 20-month-old Jonas's naps. If for some reason he isn't tired, they have quiet time instead: O'Donnell puts him in his crib with books and closes the door. "I can usually get in 20 minutes of work before he grows restless," she says. If Jonas wakes up while she's on a work call and begins crying, O'Donnell has trained herself to resist hanging up and rushing right in to check on him. "It hurts a little bit to listen to him," she says. "But it won't kill me -- or him." Plus, she believes it's important for him to learn how to soothe himself.
It is extremely important for mothers to find a balance between work and home. When you find a legit stay at home position, it may become even harder to find that balance because of the comfort of being home some of us may not be able to take work as serious not being in a work environment. My advice as a stay at home mom is to remember what and who you are doing this for. what is your motivation? my motivation is my daughter. she keeps me going and i will never give up knowing that she is counting on me. I wish every single one of you the best!
True, you can drop about $500-$600 to set your nursery up for cloth diapers, especially if you're buying brand-new pocket, one-size, or AIO styles. But Odom estimates the average cost of disposable diapers for two years at more than $1,400—and that figure is higher if your child potty trains later than age 2, or if you buy premium-priced, eco-friendly diapers.
     Okay, so as you can see I’m thrilled with Toosha’s diapers! I highly recommend checking out her shop on Etsy! Patterns and diapers vary based on the fabric she’s working with and custom orders are available. Want a military diaper, done, a Superman diaper, done. Ask away and get beautiful custom fluff creations. Like her page on Facebook for updates, giveaways, and fun! 
Before I had children I had always imagined that once I made the leap into motherhood I would continue to work. Once my first child was born everything changed. Not only did I have conflicted feelings about returning to work full-time, I was suddenly faced with paying exorbitant child care costs. I never considered the fact that I might not be able to afford to be a working mother. I didn’t have much earning potential at the time of my daughter’s birth and my paycheck was more or less the sum of the cost of daycare.
The washer doesn't have any settings for a pre-soak or extra rinse so I have to run 3 separate wash loads (warm with cold rinse as my "pre-rinse" then hot wash cold rinse with detergent then warm wash cool rinse as my final rinse), and run down and add quarters after each wash load. Then I run everything through the dryer on low to dry the pocket shells and wet bags, then pull out all the PUL and run another dryer load on high to dry the inserts and prefolds (I have a lot of bamboo inserts which take forever to dry).
I have a 9 month old and we cloth diaper at home. We do disposables at daycare. I have 16 bumgenius free time. I highly recommend it! For me it's a little easier knowing that I don't have to stress about getting her bottles (I bf/pump), my purse, her daycare bag and my lunch... Plus a 5th bag of cloth diapers for daycare. I thought I'd rather do 100% cloth but I like the balance.

See Picture 1 for samples of sizes. Wetbags come in many different sizes, and different makers may have different dimensions. As a rule of thumb, a mini or xs will fit wipes that are predampened with water or wipe solution for outings. A small wetbag fits 2-3 diapers, a medium fits 4-6, and a large fits 10-12. Some companies even have an XL. Pail liners are also available, and these are large enough to go in a 40 liter garbage can for putting dirty diapers in before they go through their wash routine.
Working full-time at home isn’t for the faint of heart. It requires focus, discipline, motivation, and an ability to fight through the day-to-day isolation. It takes a certain personality to love it and thrive at it. But of the work-at-home warriors out there, there is a select group of which I am constantly in awe. Work-at-home moms who are also caring for young children full time. These are the parents who are genuinely trying to “have it all,” all at once, difficulties or not.

While I still would rather not work outside the home, I can see the benefits of my job. Beyond my salary and benefits (the benefits where I work are VERY good), I have provided a lot of stability for our family. DH has had a turbulent career, including six months of unemployment and working for years in an unstable job with threats of layoffs and a paycut. In addition, from age six months until kindergarten (and the summer after kindergarten) we were blessed with a daycare situation that provided a sort of “second family” for our child. We can no longer use the family because they moved, but we keep in touch. I’m unconvinced that daycare cannot, in fact, be beneficial to a child if you find the right situation.
Unfortunately, many moms feel powerless because they can’t find legitimate work-from-home opportunities and sometimes fall victim to Tupperware, handbag, cosmetics or other “parties” that usually charge you a lot of money up front to start selling and rarely result in the success you want.  Or, businesses that want you to pay thousands of dollars to get a “certificate in medical billing,” or “secret shopper” scams.  Certainly these can be completely legitimate, but all too often it ends up costing the person more money than they ever earn.

Here’s what I do: I toss the diapers in the wash. I run a cold soak or pre-wash if we’ve got some super messy ones. Then I turn on the hot water and run a regular cycle, using less than half (honestly more like a 1/4) of the “usual” amount of whatever damn detergent I have on hand. (You DO want to stay away from fragrances and brightening agents and oils and real soaps, but dude, THIS IS REALLY HARD, unless you order one of the specialty detergents, and frankly, that’s the one thing about cloth diapering that is just too damn high maintenance for me.) Then I dry them on low, and everything gets super clean and smells fine and then I re-stuff them and fold them while watching TV at night, surveying my cute little piles of diapers and OMG THEY ARE SO CUTE. Once a week, I wash all of them with a couple scoops of Oxi-Clean and no detergent, just to ward off any of that terrible residue and repelling stuff that might happen because I’m using a three-star detergent instead of four or five.
Great article, thanks. I’m a Mom of 4, now a hands-on Nanna. Pretty hard to get things done when your kids are small. When my oldest was being bullied at school I was a single Mom and desperately needed money to pay for an alternative private school. So I became an ethical dog breeder. Twenty seven years on I’m still doing it and reckon it beats most other options out there hands down.
Okay, so the title is somewhat misleading.  Whether you work full-time at or away from home, as a mother, you discover you really can't have or do it all, but that is not to say that we can't try, right?  When I first found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to cloth diaper.  In trying to find support with my family and friends (who all looked at me like I was crazy by the way!), I eventually turned to the internet as my main informational resource.  I couldn't believe how many great sources of information there were out there, and I didn't realize what a come back cloth diapering had made either.  I quickly found a supportive, online community via amazing blogs such as this one, discussion forums, websites, social networking sites, and so on.  Before my daughter was even born, I had undertaken a plethora of knowledge on cloth diapering including terms such as AIO/AI2, fitteds, diaper covers, stripping, sunning, Zorb, wet bags, diaper sprayers, wet/dry pails, the pros and cons of synthetic versus natural fibers, cloth diaper safe ointments/detergents, the no-no's of fabric softeners, etc., etc.
When it comes down to it, research is research and only what's best for you and your family matters. It's true not everyone has the luxury of choosing between staying home or working but research can't tell you exactly what's going on in your family. Make a decision that's right for you and don't worry about what strangers, your neighbor or your mother-in-law think.
After reading this blog I decided to try one of the places – Clickworker – thought it was right up my alley. I assume these are legit online businesses, but unfortunately, as soon as I signed up with all my information – my Facebook account was hacked! I’m concerned as to what else might happen, but hoping that was it and my account at Clickworker was closed fast enough. Just be careful….
Women in Canada are a vulnerable group, and not to mention the highest group on the poverty list (especially single mothers). This is a false representation. Women all over Canada struggle with parenthood. There are so many variables you have left unaccounted for. Inadequate/unaffordable childcare, the small amount the government gives is not enough to live on for many mothers, 55% will not always pay the bills, top-up’s are a luxury that not many people receive.. I could keep going.

I love your blog, and very often my days at work go like this…blah blah blabbity blah…oh, a new post at the Smackdown – Yessss. Now get out of my cube so I can read this work-related (wink wink) blog about cool stuff. LOVE. So I’m a mom to a pretty terrific 8 mo. old little man with the chubbiest and mos delectable knees, feet, fingers, elbows, and eyelashes. Good lord, the eyelashes. Seriously…somedays I am tempted to try out some mascara, but no. That’d be wrong, right?. Anyways, I love that you’re making the switch to cloth diapers, mostly because it’s something I’m pretty curious about but am nervous to try. At the risk of sounding like an idiot, how exactly does the cloth diapering thing work? Is it uuber messy? Do they really get clean in the wash? I’m so curious but hesitant to make the investment without hearing firsthand.

Well, Lea, thanks for rubbing salt on the wound! Just kidding, but I do appreciate your perspective. Yes, my life choices would be vastly different if I lived in Canada. I wish I didn’t have to work full time, but an unfortunate real estate transaction in 2007 means I am chained to my work desk for a little while longer. It is sickening to think how much of my money goes to pay someone else to raise my children (ages 5 and 2.) I pay $873 per month for their care, 4 days per week (grandparents take the 5th day) and that’s with a 20% sibling discount. I also work for the health insurance. My husband’s work doesn’t provide it because the architecture firm is so small (only 3 employees.) We once paid for it on our own when I experimented with staying at home and we got a deal of $450 per month. I now pay only $200 per month with my state job. Anyway, what you said about giving our children a childhood really struck me. I had a stay-at-home mom and have wonderful memories of those carefree days. It pains me that my kids don’t have those same opportunities….especially when my 5 year old son says “mom, you don’t even know what I do all day” or “why do I have to stay at school so long in the day” Alas, we are hopefully less than a year out from when the debt should be paid off and I’m hoping I can redeem their school years by working less….or better yet, working differently. I just wish the cards weren’t so stacked against us here in the States.
I am a stay at home mom of a 6 month old boy. I had to quit my fulltime job 2 years before I even got pregnant due to health issues. I decided to continue to use my college education and passions to bring in extra income. I became a Pampered Chef Consultant to help other busy women and men learn how to make quick and healthy meals. I am a Personal Trainer by profession so I also train clients in my home. I do photography sessions occasionally and I now babysit occasionally in my home! God is good. He provides when we give him our talents!

In Canada, parents (and students) don’t have to win the Powerball just to pay for university. Here, four-year degrees cost a mere fraction of what American universities are brazenly demanding. This means that students graduate free from indentured servitude, and they can choose to do anything they please with their degree. Sure, send us your kids — fees for international students are higher but you will still find them a bargain.
[…] So don’t let yourself succumb to one single source of income.  Take a lesson from those around us and diversify.  Start by putting your money into things that have a strong potential to grow and bring you returns for years to come.  If you’re feeling a little more adventurous or entrepreneurial, you could always start a small-scale business using a website such as this one or other online jobs.

I can’t work at home very well with my kids here, even with my husband watching them. The older boys aren’t an issue because they’ve been trained to behave when I’m WFH but the little guy has a ways to go. So I only WFH under extreme circumstances, or when I’m sick. I definitely feel like I take the easier way out by working in an office instead of trying to get stuff done at home!
This is a great list. When people are searching from jobs that will allow them to work from home, they often have not clue what to search for on jobs sites other than “work at home.” This is an excellent list of search terms, as well as to give ideas for areas in which to seek further training if needed so that working from home can be a possibility.

It may be easier to get the housework done or run to the grocery store during the day when my son is awake so he can “help” me and save my work that requires a lot of focus for naps or after bedtime. This way I feel like I am spending time with my son when I am with him and still accomplishing something that needs to be done at some point in the day anyway. – Meaghan
Daycare will take anything, but I send pockets (variety of snaps and velcro) because I think it's easier for them. I send 4 pockets and a medium wet bag every day. We have a large variety of brands and I liked some better as an infant and others now that he's a toddler and I like some better for long car trips or outings and others better for being more trim. Just depends on what's going on for a particular day. In general, Tots Bots are my absolute because they unstuff themselves in the washer and the minky has never ever given me any repelling problems. They are also really absorbant. But the downside is that they are more expensive. Other than that, I really like BumGenius and Blueberry for their high absorbency, while Rumparooz and FuzziBunz are better when I want something more trim. Some people like investing in a single type, but I prefer a variety because DH and I differ in what we like the best (velcro for him, snaps for me) and because pockets on a 4 mo old fit differently than on a 22 mo old, aside from sizing differences, but I'm not going to buy different stashes.

Depending on which state a young parent lives in, that ratio of income-to-child-care costs is often even worse, the CAP study found. Take Massachusetts, for example. Women between the ages of 21 and 31 in that state have higher median incomes—$38,320 per year—when compared to their compatriots nationally. But the cost of putting two kids in a child care center in Massachusetts runs an average of $29,843 per year, according to 2015 data from the non-profit Child Care Aware of America. That’s a solid 78% of a young Massachusetts woman’s median salary.


I was a virtual assistant for awhile. I was in Real Estate but decided it wasn’t for me because I was out and never home. I decided to start a Real Estate Virtual Assistant business and let all my Real Estate friends know about it. I was hired by a property manager and did all the work at home and got some work from other agents but then they started getting greedy and tried to lower my prices or get free work from me. I was making $15 an hour from the property manager (I was only inputting receipts and I’d update the MLS listings or put in new listings for her and answer calls for her) but then she decided she wanted to pay me $30 per month to do what I was doing plus show the rentals to prospective tenants (showings could last up to an hour per person..sometimes she got non stop calls about some houses)and deposit all the rental money (that takes hours because there were several different banks she’d have to go to)….I said No way and decided that business wasn’t for me. It’s not really hard to get into but be tough and stick to your prices and don’t get your business from friends (like I did) because then they expect you to give them a break.

Thanks for the reminder to keep it simple! I’ve used cloth in the past but I’m starting all over for my baby due this winter. There are SO many options out there and it is massively overwhelming. I absolutely agree with your advice and it was just what I needed to convince me to stick to my plan of just ordering 24 Bumgenius diapers. We had good luck with those in the past and cloth diapering has always worked best for us when we just stick to one kind.
Interesting article with good advice, I have looked at many on-line and work form home options over the years too and as you say most of them are a hard slog with very little at the end of them. Yet there are ways to make money on-line and I have done but as you say it takes experience and a lot of gumption to make any reasonable amount. Selling products is the way to go though I think too, source something and open an Ebay store and others. This is my next route over the coming months and when you can combine that with lots of SEO articles about your products too in various sources hopefully it might all work together. Voted up.

Couples, though, sometimes have more choices when one spouse has a much higher paying job or more work flexibility, or if they've previously lived indulgent lifestyles that can be easily pared back to accommodate newer and tighter budgets. Some "parental care is best" advocates claim almost any couple can afford to live on one income, because child care and other expenses associated with work often wipe out the second income. This 1950s family vision is enticing, but before buying in, closely examine the full financial and lifestyle implications of your choices, and make sure to consider all of the relevant factors.

Good post. You have really motivated me to open a blog and start writing. I will put a lot of these money earning tips into practice.

I was more environmentally conscious when we had our second child, Molly, so I decided to try cloth diapers again. We found some flannel all in one diapers with velcro and an inner waterproof layer at a department store. These diapers were easier to use than the ones I used on Andy and came in adorable prints and colors. Eventually the waterproof layer broke down and the diapers began to leak, but I kept using them because I thought that leaks were normal with cloth diapers. We continued to use disposables for nighttime and trips away from home because the cloth wouldn't last all night, and I didn't trust it away from home.
I love this policy and our family took advantage of it. For my first baby I took the full year off myself, but for my next two pregnancies I was already a stay-at-home mom and didn’t need mat leave. So my husband used the parental leave to carve out some nice chunks of time at home: 12 weeks for our second baby, and the full 9 months for our third. Outnumbered for the first time by two toddlers and a newborn, my husband and I both found it incredibly helpful that he was home all that time.
If you don't learn to keep your roles as mom and businesswoman separate, giving each your full concentration for a set amount of time, you'll never feel like you're doing either well. To separate mentally from the rest of the house, set up a private office area, recommends Lauren Kohl, an attorney and mom of two in Newton, Massachusetts. She works out of a converted closet, a kid-free zone that helps her to detach from the rest of her house. If she can't see the dirty rompers in the hamper, she's less inclined to leave her desk to launder them, she says. Plus, it helps you disengage from your job if you have a door to close. If you don't have an office, try making a list of everything you're going to do the next day, leave it in your work space, and walk away. "You're doing something to turn work off," says Durst.

-Sprinkle powdered detergent (I use Planet) directly onto the diapers (I use 2/3rds of the recommended amount for a regular laundry load, which is about 2 oz...this is because your diapers will not fill your machine, and overuse of soap will cause issues...it is a fine line between too much soap and not enough, so you might need to do some trial and error)


If you ever dreamed of opening a retail store, that doesn't have to be put on hold because you're a stay-at-mom. The Internet has made it possible to sell products from any location, including your house. The United States Postal Service even offers Carrier Pickup services that will pick your packages at your house making it simple to run a retail business from home. Your children can even help out with the work from home business by packing orders and getting them ready to mail.

Did I find this article useful? Yes, yes and a resounding yes!!! I happen to have a friend from Florida who has been bugging me about an online income opportunity because she knows I am a freelancer who earns through online jobs. But since we live worlds apart, I just didn’t know how to help her. I am definitely sharing this to her and I am checking some of the things listed here too for myself. Thanks Alexa!
Flexible spending (dependent-care) accounts offered by many employers allow employees to set aside up to $5,000 of income before taxes annually to pay for child care. Higher-bracket couples can save up to $150 monthly in federal/local income tax, and FICA deductions versus paying with after-tax funds. Even without such accounts, the federal child-care credit can save (per child, up to two children) higher-income families about $50 per month and lower-income families up to $1,050 annually. Note: You can choose only one of these two methods each year. (To find out more, see Money Saving Year-End Tax Tips and How can I use a child tax credit?)
Great article! I’m doing direct selling at the moment and absolutely loving it! Never thought it would be something I would get into but when you have a strong desire to stay at home with your child everyday but still need to earn money you will give anything a go right 🙂 and I’m so glad I did. The work involved itself could not be easier, I run my business all from my phone. And I also love the personal development you gain from an industry like this, you learn so much about yourself more than you could from any job working for someone else in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong it is hard work, you have to put a lot in to be successful, but when you are putting all that time and effort into yourself and creating success for YOU rather than an employer / boss the results are so rewarding!! If anyone is looking into getting on board something similar I am happy to pass on some info 🙂 Bec.

Do you love being around dogs but can’t commit to having one of your own? There is a big demand for dog walking for people who work long hours away from the home as well as dog sitting for when dog owners go out of town. This would give you and your kids the perfect opportunity to have fun with a four-legged friend without having to adopt one of your own. 

I LOVE cloth diapers!! I didn’t use them for my first baby, but my daughter has been in them since a few weeks old. I discovered what the gel in diapers really is and just couldn’t put that on my newborn!! I use earth’s best diapers if I need disposable and they work great with no gel or crap! I’ve used Thirsties Duo Snap (fit longer with adjustable crotch snaps) covers and prefolds the whole time, I find it really easy! We had to change to folding them tri-fold and using a fleece liner every single time to help my babies sensitive eczema skin stay smooth and happy! I hate the extra laundry (just because I hate laundry in any fashion) BUT I love that I’m saving our family money, that I’m helping my babies skin and that I conquered a goal to try and cloth diaper! For a long time I was using washcloths as wipes with a spray of water/baby soap/baby oil and that was also working great. I bought a bunch of wipes on sale a bit ago though but as soon as they are gone I’ll be back at cloth! I also really recommend snaps over velcro! Velcro gets stuck to everything even if its closed and it just doesn’t stay on my chubby baby as well.
