Stay at home parent or out working?

edited July 2016 in Home & Household
Do you guys plan or already stay at home with your baby or do you work?

We have decided that my husband will earn the living and I will stay at home looking after our boy for at least a few years. I am thinking about going back once he is in nursery at around 3 years, part time but until then I want to stay at home with him. Luckily for us we can do that as my husband has a good job. I could not imagine if I had to go back to work straight away and have someone else be with my baby the majority of the day.

What do you do? Can you afford to have it the way you planned it?



  • I'm thinking I'll start trying to do just a little bit of work from home when the baby is around 6 months, then wait until baby is a year and try to work part-time outside of the home (like 10 hrs/wk.) and I would love to be able to take him to work with me.

    I would like to wait until he is 3 or 4 before I go to work without him.
