These are but a few examples of all the possibilities out there to make income for your family even with a babe in arms. I didn’t even touch on becoming a consultant (like a Stitch Fix stylist in certain cities), or starting your own direct-selling business. Still, you should have plenty of ideas now and feel a little less overwhelmed – by finding a remote job, anyway. I can’t do anything about baby worries!
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.

I’m a former lawyer turned entrepreneur with Rodan+Fields (makers of ProActiv, the acne system). After welcoming my twin girls, I decided traveling, long hours, and dial-ins were no longer for me. I wanted to work from home on a part-time basis and Rodan+Fields has allowed me to do that. If you’re interested in earning a solid part-time income on your own terms, I’d love to talk to you!
This is a great list! Some of these I have never thought of for the stay at home moms (and stay at home dads 😉 ) out there. I have done a lot of research on different ways to make some income and I am always amazed at the ideas I still routinely find. You mentioned working for Amazon. I know Amazon has a platform that offers some micro jobs you can do as well. They pay small amounts but if you do a lot they can add up! I also like Uber! But only for driving during the day. I wouldn’t suggest driving for Uber at night.
There are different programs, depending on your interests. The one I am most familiar with is Bradley, and they have training across the country every year. The training does cost, but it is a wonderful program. I went through Bradley classes with my husband when we were pregnant with our first and it was just the best experience for both of us. You can find more about training here.

Work-from-home jobs for moms are available for moms with infants, those seeking supplemental income or a bit of extra pocket change, and those able to juggle more demanding at home careers for stay at home moms. The latter includes both part-time work for stay-at-home moms and full-time positions. Most jobs for stay-at-home moms offer exceptional work-life balance.

Third, I needed support. We all need support! And sometimes that support means my (awesome) hubby sprays the diapers while I’m still putting the baby to bed. Or sometimes it means he knows I’m doing diaper laundry that night, so he’ll dump in most of the diapers and fill the prewash but leave it open so I can just throw in the poopy diapers after I spray them. Sometimes support comes in the form of older siblings helping you stuff diapers or having a mom or mother in law who loves you enough to put diapers away when they come to babysit for the evening. Having the support of your family, whether immediate or extended, is important for any big parenting decision- cloth included.


I work as well and 3 out of the 5 work days I don't get home from work until 7pm or later. I put DD to bed and throw the laundry in. Before I go to bed I throw stuff in the dryer and then hang up the covers. It's no big deal. I also make sure to do a load of laundry on the weekend, so I'm now only doing one load of diaper laundry during the work week.
I started out earning a side income with photography.  All I did was build up a portfolio taking pictures of models (usually good-looking friends and family members who modeled for me) and then I started a cheap website on Squarespace to list my photography services.  The phone didn’t ring often, but I got a few gigs each year ranging from $100 to $2,000 to shoot weddings, engagement photos, senior pictures, corporate events, etc.
I used Motherease brand with both of my kids. We used basic flat newborn diapers folded into a one-size Motherease cover for the first couple of months, then switched to Motherease one-size diapers in their covers. As they grew older, we added some Motherease snap-in inserts for extra absorbency. It was a great system for us, grandparents included, and after using them with both kids I sold them for about 1/3 of what I paid for them. The extra laundry just became part of our routine, the diapers and snaps were super durable, and I’m another who really enjoyed seeing the diapers hanging on the line to dry. Looking back I have fond memories of my kids “helping” with diaper laundry, having a picnic under the drying diapers, and knowing that it was the right choice for us.

I’m a new mom, before my baby I was a college student staying on campus while working at a daycare. Now I’m back at home trying to rebuild myself. I desire to work but I take care of my daughter 100% of the time. What are some jobs that I can do based from home with no concern about background noise or strictly from a computer. All these moms up here are a great inspiration and I hope to one day be the same to another new mom :)
The fact is, cloth diapers do require more work than simply tossing a disposable into the trash, and they aren't the right choice for every family. But thanks to progress in modern tush-covering technology, they may make more sense for yours than you realize. Read our modern mom's primer for cloth diapering—you might just be inspired to give an old-fashioned choice a new look.
Coming home late and washing diapers in the evening means mine don’t get hung outside very often. I try to make sure that I do at least one load on a weekend morning, so I can hang that load up for some sun and fresh air. The weather doesn’t always cooperate, or sometimes it’s the family that doesn’t cooperate, and sometimes I forget the diapers are finished in the washer until it’s 4 in the afternoon and the best sun of the day is gone!

Yes! I’m a stay-at-home mom and started working as a consultant for Usborne Books in January — loving it! I do parties with friends online literally while putting my son to bed, and I did an amazing reading incentive program in my daughter’s school which involved one brief meeting a friend watched my kids during and all the rest was done after they were in bed.

The game changer for me has been waking up earlier. I wake up at least 2 hours before my kids get up every day and get some work done then. I will also sometimes work after the kids have gone to bed (only if I have to, usually by this point of the day I am completely burned out and just want to relax)… I can also squeeze some work in by sitting at the kitchen table with my laptop while my kids are eating breakfast, lunch or snacks because I know they will be sitting still for a few minutes. I try not to use screen time, but it can be really helpful in a pinch! – Bethany | Mama Finds Her Way

3. At the end of the day we bring home the bag of dirty diapers.  I take the dirty ones out of the bag and put them in our even larger wet bag at home.  The daycare workers close up the dirties like they would a disposable.  We don’t ask them to fasten laundry tabs or pull out inserts.  If there are any number 2 diapers I try to spray them off immediately with the diaper sprayer attached to our toilet.

Tutoring. My friend Jenny tapped into a high-income community and used her teaching background to earn $40/hour helping with homework. The real money came when she bundled three kids together for group homework sessions, charging each family $25/hr. That’s $75 for an hour of work that can be done while your baby naps. Or, while you pay a teenager $10 to watch the baby in another room. This is one of those work at home jobs for moms that can be both financially beneficial and persoanlly rewarding as you help children learn.

Yes our taxes are outlandish. That is putting it mildly. We pay 50 % or more of every dollar earned back in taxes. Starting with income tax. Then we pay CPP for our Canadian pension, then EI in case you loose your job. (you don’t get to collect Employment insurance if your fired or quit)Then we pay 13 % on every purchase we make in retail sales tax, including on a new home(that are not cheap either in Canada)then we pay 2 X more for gas (taxes built in) and basically 2 to 4 x more for everything we purchase compared to what it is sold for in the US. Even products made in Canada are sold much cheaper in the USA. All liquor stores are owned and operated by our government, so every penny over the cost of it is tax to the government for these surfaces. As a male with no children, I pay for this lady to have her kids and put them thru school. Her number 7 point hits me the worst. There is no such thing as free healthcare. We pay through the nose for it, but it is just above mediocre. If you need a hernia operation you will have to wait four years for one for example, but only two for a complete sex change operation paid for by tax payers. I lived in the USA for 22 years and you are way better off down there. I went back which I regret, and now I pay 4500 more a year just to fuel my car. Tires cost twice as much, etc. So the cost of living in the USA way offsets your cost to purchase your healthcare. Now judging by this ladies last name, I kind doubt she was born here, and so she may actually get free healthcare, until her taxes finally offset it. But not with what she already cost the taxpayer. 3 C sections, etc. Her taxed earnings will never catch up to the burden.

Unless your spouse is making six figures, being a SAHM is going to require sacrifices. The family will have to make sacrifices, such as expensive vacations, eating out or maybe even new clothes. As the one staying home, you’ll probably make the most sacrifices. You’ll probably forgo several things you once enjoyed. The question is how much are you willing to sacrifice to stay at home with your kids?

Hello! Thank you so much for the article I am always looking for new ways to be able to work from home. I homeschool my children and I also get bored easily ;-} So I appreciate it! I have been working at Tried and True Ways to Work From Home for about a year now and they allow you pick and choose your jobs and hours (non-sales and they NEVER ask for money like some of these other WFH places) I want to learn more about affiliate marketing and start my own site/blog. Do you have any more tips on that?
Ah, do as I say, not as I do…as a Canadian with two American university degrees on my wall, I can only look back and say, what was I thinking? If only I had gone to the University of Toronto, especially on scholarship as they were offering, I would have graduated in the black rather than having to sign away a good portion of my life to loan repayment.
One of my good friends, who is featured in this article, is a work-at-home, stay-at-home mom so I’m well aware how difficult the lifestyle is. But I also know there is a reason she chose it! So, before we dive into dealing with the nitty gritty, I wanted to ask the moms what they love about working from home with their kids. Spoiler alert: Flexibility and not missing those adorable milestones are big selling points!
Think it through carefully. No matter where you’re standing, the grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence. Sometimes it sounds like a fantasy to me to work in an office outside of my home and to be able to take lunch breaks that are for me, have a few minutes to myself in the car each day, etc. Sometimes I wonder if my son wouldn’t do better in a daycare setting for the social and developmental aspects. It is easy to get distracted working from home. If you are not a highly organized and self-motivated person, working from home, especially with young children, may not be for you. If it is right for you and your family, set your priorities early on and reflect on them frequently. – Ashleigh
A lot of us work full time. CDs really aren't that time consuming. I do 3 CD loads a week - Sunday evening, Tuesday evening, and Thursday evening. I throw them in the wash when DH starts DS's bath around 7:30 PM, then they are done around 9:00 PM so I put the inserts in the dryer for 50 min and hang the pockets to dry. Inserts stay dry in the dryer until DH starts bath the next night and I do my stuffing then (takes about 10 min) and then join the 2nd half of bath time.

By this time I had more diapers than Zach needed, but loved creating them so much I couldn't stop. There were so many adorable fabrics just begging me to make them into a cloth diapers. I started trading my cloth diapers for other items so I could keep creating, and got rave reviews from the mamas who received my diapers. When my husband needed to go from full time to half time work so he could student teach I thought it was the perfect time to open my own cloth diapering business. I could share my love for cloth diapers, fulfill my need to create, and help out with the family finances too. Zany Zebra Designs was born! My goal for this business is to provide helpful information and high quality products so you will love using cloth diapers as much as I do!
It seems some people took the opportunity to turn this wonderful article into a market campaign for themselves. I’m sorry to see that – but am wise enough to know it happens. Some of the replies are legitimate, trying to help other people who are interested in making money at home. Other replies are marketing their own at home business – pyramid style businesses. Thank you to Alexa for writing this and to many others that offered additional help in their reply. I work full time right now outside the home, but I need some extra income to help with some unexpected expenses that have come up. Thank you again – I hope all of you looking find/or have found something to help.

I opted to go with pocket-style diapers. (There are 243,793,450,138 different styles and options and I won’t lie, I got so confused by all the lingo on the cloth diapering sites that I gave up and emailed bloggers who use cloth for recommendations.) Pocket-style cloth diapers really resemble disposables — there’s a cute outer shell/pant thing that you stuff uber-absorbent inserts into. They fasten with snaps or velcro or snaps AND velcro and are crazy adjustable — you’ll notice the weight limits tend to run from 15 to 35 pounds or so. (To give you an idea of that range: Ezra weighed 15 pounds by four months, while Noah currently weighs around 33 pounds at three-and-a-half. So they wear the same size. Glorious.) (Noah, despite being on the high end of the weight range, is so skinny that he still isn’t on the loosest snap setting on a medium Fuzzi Bunz, that technically says it’s for 15-30 pounds.)
Some parents get the 55% figure “topped up” by employers who contribute their own funds, so that parents receive a higher percentage of their regular income. At my last nonprofit, my employer topped up my mat leave compensation to 83% of my regular wage for the first six months (the next six months was back to 55%). According to Canadian Business magazine, top-ups are currently available to about one in five parents who work in the private sector (usually for big firms), and about one in two public sector employees (probably permanent versus term employees).
I often set up stations around the house to help keep them occupied and I rotate through them so they don’t get bored of them. So things like legos, play dough, kinetic sand, paint, coloring, reading, board games, card games, water balls (not sure if that is their technical name but they are little tiny balls that swell as they get wet and reduce down as they dehydrate). We usually have a mess to clean up somewhere after I am done working but the kids know the routine enough that there isn’t a big deal for them to help clean up.  – Summer Price

Third, I needed support. We all need support! And sometimes that support means my (awesome) hubby sprays the diapers while I’m still putting the baby to bed. Or sometimes it means he knows I’m doing diaper laundry that night, so he’ll dump in most of the diapers and fill the prewash but leave it open so I can just throw in the poopy diapers after I spray them.

I am unsure as to whether this question is completely relevant or not, but: I am, or at least, would like to be a writer. I don’t want to sound overly supercilious, just truthful, but I have a great deal of talent and there is virtually nothing I can’t write. However, I digress. I recently wrote a short story, which, despite its length (9 pages) is really more like a sketch, but its very eclectic and general. What I want to know is where can I sell this story? It’s jocoserious and seriocomic and pseudoautobiographical, and while not overly sexual, does content overtly erotic elements, yet I’d never categorize it as erotica, which, though I can write, and good at it, I dislike to, viewing it as a diminishment and degradation of my talents; also, it’s trashy and overly simple: beneath me and all decent, talented writers in every way! lol.

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.

Pockets were an absolute disaster for us. They always had buildup and were repelling liquid. With my first we used a variety of fitteds and covers. With my second we simplified big time. 3 or 4 pair of wool longies, 6 co-ordinating t-shirts and 16 motherease sandys, that was the entire sum of clothing he had for the first 2.5 years of his life. It made laundry simple as he had so few clothes and the longies only needed to be washed every 4-6 weeks (I’d put a different pair on after changing to let the previous pair air out. I learned how to knit to make my own longies and then knit them with extra length and cuffed them so that he would get extra wear out of them. He literally had the same three pair of longies from 4 months to potty training at 2.5 (and a few pair of shorties for summer). For the newborn stage I borrowed diapers from a friend and had made a few pair of tiny longies, which I later unravelled for the yarn and reknit into the shorties!
I rarely saw posts about cloth diapering mommas who worked outside the home.  Upon this revelation, I began actively seeking out information on full-time working mothers who CD'd, and was discouraged at the themes that kept popping up. The comment from these gals I unfortunately came across time and time again was, if you are not a full-time mother or work-from-home-mom, you cannot cloth diaper for an extended amount of time.  I'd see posts like, "I tried, but it's just not possible", "Too much laundry, not enough time", "I gave it a shot, but seriously ladies, it's not worth the effort I put into it for as long as I did", or even, "Cloth diapering and working outside the home are like the combination of oil and water - they just don't mix".  Really?  So I shouldn't even give it a try?
You know, before I started cloth diapering I was always baffled by the fervor of the cloth diapering people because OH MY LANDS, could they ever go on and on and on about cloth diapers. I mean, I get the landfill thing and all that, but the excitement seemed to go deeper than that typical smugness people get from their reusable grocery bags and their hybrids and their compost piles. These people seemed genuinely jazzed about diapers.
As a front-end engineer, you’ll aid in the development of solutions that support consistent information architecture, taxonomies, visual standards, interaction patterns and use cases across multiple applications. In addition to reviewing designs and documenting front-end technical specifications, you’ll provide time estimates for the implementation of features/fixes.

You may end up making a choice that could prove to be difficult for the household. For instance, if you choose to stay home or work part time, finances could be stretched thin. In such cases, experts advise being strong within yourself, remembering why your choice is the best for you and your family. Then think about how you can cope with the situation.
I absolutely love this blog. I really enjoyed looking at everyone’s ways of making money. I have a small business teaching Kindermusik classes and I’m a Brand Partner with Nerium international. Both companies are really family friendly, I make my own hours, and I’ve met some fantastic people. Nerium is a quickly growing company and the skin care products are the best I’ve ever used.
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.

There are a lot of different topics of discussion when it comes to cloth diapers – reasons to use cloth, types of diapers, wash routines, benefits, saving money, etc.  This post would be really long if I tried to go into all that and besides it’s all out there on the web already (see links at the bottom).  I just wanted to share my story as a working mom who cloth diapers and hopefully inspire other working moms to give it a shot. 

A recent Gallup poll revealed more stay-at-home moms report experiencing sadness or anger in their day than moms who work outside of the home. Of the 60,000 women surveyed, the poll included women with no children, working moms and stay-at-home moms who are or who are not looking for work "to distinguish between those who may not be employed because of circumstance rather than by choice."

Hi Alexa, I just want to thank you sincerely for this article – it was such a breath of relief for me (in a BIG way)! I own a small business and am due soon and was hoping for a way to seek out an at-home supplemental income but was only landing on continual scams (and that’s from someone who considers themself a thorough researcher). Again, I cannot thank you enough for all the legitimate links and sources (finally!). I’ll certainly be sharing this article.

After earning a college degree in English, I married and had three kids. So now I’m a self taught seamstress and mostly take in clothes for alterations. With baby #3 very new, I’m not taking in much right now; my goal by next year is to bring in $800/mo. I’ve done everything from patching holes, recovering cushions, hemming prom dresses and fixing tattered toddler dress up clothes.
[…] 50+ Legitimate Work From Home Job Opportunities  I have known people who have tried to find jobs they can do in their free time from home and it is really hard to find a work at home job that isn’t a scam.  Alexa from singlemomsincome.com has a list of actual things you can do to earn a little extra money.  The one tip I have is that there is no job called “work from home”  If that is the title of the classified ad then keep moving because that isn’t a real job listing.

“I wash twice a week but always stuff on Sunday. I have built a large enough stash that I wash them so they don’t sit too long, but they sit clean in a basket until Sunday. It is just part of what I do Sunday evening to prepare for the week ahead! When I feel stressed about it I remind myself why I made the choice, and since I am passionate about cloth diapering, it makes it easier to push myself to do it!” – Becca H
What is the effective value of work benefits Mrs. Hwang is giving up, apart from her income? In current 2012 dollars, it easily exceeds $700,000 over her lifetime. It’s possible the value Mrs. Hwang and her family assign to staying home with her children is “priceless,” but it’s also possible the Hwangs aren’t aware of the long-term cost of her decision to leave work. Either

The amount of services that can be done from your own home is unlimited. Review your personal and professional talents, and interests to determine if any can be turned into a service that you can provide virtually. Some service ideas include writing, editing, and proofreading, reviewing legal documents, bookkeeping, graphic design, virtual support, and more. In fact, in many cases you can take duties you did in a job and turn it into a home business. You can focus on offering services to the general public (B2C), such as tutoring, or to other businesses (B2B), such as web design or marketing.
Unfortunately, since most of were taught that "more money and more things" leads to "more happiness," and since we've all been given easy access to credit (allowing us have more things with less upfront money), the financial aspects of quitting work to stay at home must now be considered. Because regardless of how much happier you and the children might be if you could quit work to be a stay at home parent, that happiness can be easily offset by an onslaught of creditors pounding on your door -- all looking for repayment for all the happiness they fronted you in the past.

Also please note, I’ve tried my very hardest to confirm the accuracy of all the sources mentioned in the list. To my knowledge every single one of the jobs I’ve listed is legitimate. However, I’m only human and sometimes I make mistakes. If you feel that one of these companies should be removed, let me know. Likewise, if you’ve had an awesome experience with a company that hasn’t made it on the list let me know in the comments and I’ll add it.

Compare the start up costs against what you could reasonably expect to earn. If the start up kit costs $150 but the consultant you’re signing up with admits you’ll actually have to invest another $1,500 to do well, do the math. If you earn 25% of total party sales, you’ll have to sell $6,600 just to break even on your investment. How many parties will that take? Will your kit need replenishing or supplementing? Are there sales minimums you have to meet even if you head out on long summer holidays, or your kids are sick for weeks on end? Who pays for the catalogues and order forms you’ll need again and again?
If you do the math and realize that staying home, even if you would be receiving a bit less is still the best option for you, there are some important things you can begin to do while your children are at home with you in those first 5-6 years. Consider welfare or social assistance a helping hand, a stepping stone to get you to the next step of your life once the kids are starting school full time.
I was feeling discouraged, as I would soon join the ranks of the working mother after my precious maternity leave would expire, and although the idea of staying at home with my child was enticing, it was simply not an option.  I was the one with the steady job and even more importantly, the one who carried health insurance, flexible spending accounts, and other much needed resources.  I have so much respect for these overworked, undervalued mothers and working from home one day a week has taught me to empathize with how much effort being a full-time mom while trying to accomplish other tasks truly is.  That being said, there had to be answer to this cloth diapering and working conundrum.
Renee Belbeck, a WAHM from Columbus, Ohio, and C.E.O. and founder of the National Association of W.O.M.E.N. (Women, Owners, Moms, Entrepreneurs, and Networkers), discovered a simple rule when her children were toddlers: "If I gave them a little quality time, I'd get two hours to work." She says the rule still holds true, even though her children are now 10 and 6.
Continuing to dig deeper, I tended to notice a pattern from the sources of information.  When it came to fellow mommies posting, they almost always had a WAHM / SAHM abbreviation posted along with their names and avatars.  For those of you completely new to the world of parenting and mommy blogs as I was, these abbreviations stand for work-at-home-mom and stay-at-home-mom, signifying mothers who work from home through a number of vocations, or those who are full-time stay-at-home mothers.
I have two small children and found going to a workplace full time was incredibly difficult alongside meeting the children’s needs (and paying for childcare!). It was very scary leaving a place of security and heading towards the unknown of being self-employed and working from home. I believed in myself and took the plunge to teach online for an established company. It was the best decision. The job is fun and energising and I fit it when my kids are at school. My children are happy and calm and I’m not worried about finances.

I have my hand in almost every one of these categories. You know, of course that I blog here at AffordingMotherhood.com. I have a couple of books on Amazon: 76 Free Things to Do with Kids and Natural Birth Stories. I also have a shop on Etsy where I design purses and knitting needle cases that you can sew yourself. You may not know that my “real” job is working from home as an architect. I haven’t tried direct marketing or in-home childcare yet, but who knows?!

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.
I’m a former lawyer turned entrepreneur with Rodan+Fields (makers of ProActiv, the acne system). After welcoming my twin girls, I decided traveling, long hours, and dial-ins were no longer for me. I wanted to work from home on a part-time basis and Rodan+Fields has allowed me to do that. If you’re interested in earning a solid part-time income on your own terms, I’d love to talk to you!
I guess it depends on the daycare or nanny. I have mostly AIO's and a few pockets, I think they are so easy for anyone to use. They put on like a disposable, just instead of putting in the trash, put in a pail/wet bag which you would provide. I did disposables in the beginning with the constant newborn poops.. Mostly because my hubby is a negative Nancy, and I didn't want to buy a bunch of newborn size diapers that wouldn't last long. But now at almost 5 months we are mostly cloth. Although when my hubby ever changes her he always puts on disposables... It depends on the people around you and if they are willing to do try it. I work full time but lucky to bring my baby to work with me. I just use a wet bag and throw in the laundry. Being a working mom I don't think really matters, how hard is it to run a load of laundry? Just do an extra rinse cycle. Although, I'll tell you - it took me like a month to finally get the washing routine down! Lots of leaky diapers in the process. THAT almost made me give up. Good to go now! :) if you are anything like me, I was pretty determined to make this happen, so it was definitely going to happen!!
Before going after that remote job, you need to be honest with yourself about your schedule and your energy bank. You’re schedule will of course be dictated by your baby’s feeding schedule, doctor’s appointments, naptimes, your partner’s schedule, and other factors. Understanding your personal schedule will let you know what hours you might have available for a job, and whether those hours are late night, early morning, or midafternoon.
Our daytime streets may be completely empty of children over the age of three, and four- and five-year-olds are basically “going to work” each day and returning with the grown-ups, but those are their problems. No one can deny that working moms and dads are happier because the burden of childcare has been entirely lifted from their shoulders. They can now rest easy knowing that their children are safely tucked under the wings of certified teachers in bona fide school buildings, with all the resources and assurances of the provincial educational system.
I’m sorry, but what percentage of women can actually manage this? I hear it all the time, but meanwhile what I see is a bunch of women guilting friends and family into buying Pampered Chef stuff that they don’t need. It’s not hard to supplement a little, but I don’t know very many real people who actually make real incomes doing things like stuffing envelopes or online tutoring or filling out surveys or whatever.
Again, this was a real pocket drainer for me. I'd get home after a 10 hour work/commute day, with two over stimulated children, a messy house, and an irritated husband (he worked 60-70 hours a week, salary). I simply did not have the energy to cook every night. A conservative cost for weekly take out at this time in my life would have been $50 a week, or $200 a month. I realize that is high for many families, but that is how it was in our family, after I chose to examine our spending.
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! Email me with “advocare” in the subject line if you’re interested!
These bad boys are a life.saver.for.real. We started using these when Aiden began eating baby food. They look like dryer sheets that lay down inside the cloth diaper and act as the most perfect poop catcher! Just lift out and toss and you COMPLETELY skip the dunk, swish, and vomit steps. Side note – if you are exclusively breast feeding your baby, no need to worry about the dirty diapers until you are introducing real foods – those messes are water soluble and can be thrown straight into the washing machine! Score!

Another way to get affordable child care: Pool your resources with several other working moms and hire one babysitter to watch all your children at the same time. Even without the sitter, you can get together with other WAHMs and let the kids play while you all work. "I found that if a child has a playdate, he or she is often amused long enough to allow you to do work that doesn't require extreme quiet," says freelance writer Melissa Dutton, of Columbus, Ohio, who also sometimes swapped child care for her two kids with another working mom a few hours a week. "I knew that she worked from home, too, so I offered to take her kid first, and it grew from there."
I think the biggest concerns in your situation would be needing to buy a new washer, and would whoever is watching your baby while you work willing to work with cloth? I cloth diaper, and honestly the “extra work” isn’t much. Every couple days, I grab the whole bag of diapers, dump it into the washer, run it through twice, then toss them into the dryer. It’s extra laundry, yes, but it isn’t laundry that has to be folded and if I forget to put them in the dryer (which happens a lot, since I usually wash only after baby’s in bed for the night), it isn’t a big deal because they’re only diapers. I use pockets, which do have to be restuffed before using, but that usually happens the following evening while we’re watching tv. So it’s definitely doable in general, even as a working mom, but whether or not it will work for you depends mostly on those first two factors.

For this article, I interviewed eight work-at-home moms who have worked full-time at home with kids ranging from newborn age to six. One mom has kids ranging from one to fourteen, but we focused on handling the younger years. In addition to working at home full-time, these ladies were also the primary caregivers to their kids. Some used part-time daycare or a babysitter a few hours a week to stay sane, but the majority of the time they are juggling their children and their jobs simultaneously. Hats off to them!


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.
Get creative when managing the soiled diapers: Several diaper companies make great washable bags to store the soiled diapers between laundering cycles and on outings.  One family told me that after their little one started solids, the smell began to pervade their home. They moved the diaper bin (a conventional covered diaper can will do) out to the back porch and now the air is fresh again. As for the poop: some parents are very comfortable scraping off the stool and rinsing the soiled diaper in the toilet.  For those who would like to stay a little further from the action, a simple spray bottle with water and a bit of baby shampoo works great.  And for the high-tech and really poop-averse family, you can buy spray handles that attach to the toilet’s water system!

Your significant other. Your partner's support of your decision is critical; otherwise there could be many difficulties. If the person that you're living with is unsupportive, he or she may not help you with finances, child rearing, or household chores. Resentments could build up on both sides. If you and your significant other disagree over whether you should stay home or work, Yasgoor recommends a six-month trial period followed by an evaluation to see how one option works for the family. Also, whatever course of action you take, make sure to run by potential issues with your partner. If you decide to work, for example, it's important to figure out details such as how long maternity and paternity leave will be, who will pick up kids from day care or school, or who will care for them when they're sick, says Leslie Morgan Steiner, author of Mommy Wars.
Hi Patrick, thanks for the comment. You can start by looking in to some opportunities listed on this post. Then, you may want to set up a professional website for yourself to market your services. If you have experience in a particular field, you can start yourself to potential clients. If you don’t have any experience, you may want to do a few jobs for free to build up enough experience to improve your chances of getting hired. Good luck!
