If you are a working mom, we understand you might be guilt tripped for not being able to spend time with your child. However, we are women, and we can juggle our work life and motherhood together without complaining even once.
Hey, it’s utterly okay if you go out in the morning and come back home late at night due to work pressure. Do you know you can still do a lot of things for your child? They will be more than happy and proud
Get A Good Childcare
Scared to leave your baby with childcare? Don’t worry there are a lot of good babysitters who will take care of your child like they are of their own. Make sure you ask for recommendations from everyone around you. Then list some of the criteria that are a must, and hire the babysitter accordingly.
Organize The Night Before
Do you leave early every morning? Reduce the morning pressure by organizing everything during the night. For example, lay their clothes, pack the Tiffin, refill the bag of the diaper and so on the previous night itself. The morning will be less chaotic, and you will be able to leave for work in peace.
Stay Connected All Throughout The Day
Even when you and your child aren’t together, you can still stay in contact with them throughout the day. If your toddler can speak then call them up every hour and know if everything is alright. If they are too young, you can video call your babysitter. Another thing that can be done for your child is you can record a video of yourself singing or teaching them something which the babysitter can play when you are not around.
Don’t trust others for cooking the meal for your children. Cook them in the mornings before you leave and then let your babysitter feed them to your child. After all, no one knows about the preferences and the eating habits of your child better than you, so it’s the best to take this responsibility yourself.
Give Them Complete Time After Returning
Your child is going to miss you far more than how much you miss him or her, right? So after coming back home make sure you give them all of your time. Take them for an outing. Also, remember to keep the weekends reserved for them. After all, what can be better than seeing your child smile right? So plan accordingly, give them surprises to make that smile broader.
So these are some ways how you can take excellent care of your child even if you are a working mom. Pretty easy isn’t it? Also, don’t worry they are not going to drift apart from you if you give them enough time after coming back home. It is important to maintain the relationship and take proper care of them even if you are miles away.
