You’re doing awesome!
for a nanny, ask on local FB groups for recommendations too, nothing better than word of mouth.
As a single father and primary carer to a baby you may be entitled to universal credit which could give you longer off work. I can’t imagine how tough it must be to leave little one so soon!
Heads up – the 4 month sleep regression DOES pass ❤️
Hi, im the same with a 5 month old due to go back to work in December as cant afford to stay off any longer. Father isnt in her life at all his choice. She has acid reflux and has never been away from me i don’t want to leave her i hardly have any friends outside of work it is so hard for all of us. Be nice to chat to both of you knowing we are all in the same boat. I wish it was easier.
As echoed by others, it does get easier and if you can afford to stay at home longer it’ll be best for the child’s development and bonding. I’m a single mum who had to go through pregnancy alone, moving to a new place with no friends and family then lockdown happened. I don’t know how I did it but I survived all the pains and tears, still a struggle but getting there.
