Hello mummies, I'm due to deliver my number 2 in September and the thoughts of managing a household with 2 children under 3 years old is stressing me out. Hence I would like to ask for some tips! Currently, my no. 1 goes to preschool, I will prepare him for school, bring him back from school about 4.30pm and prepares dinner for him. Daddy and I will take turns to put him to bed. I'm working and on the days when I end late (beyond 4.30pm), my MIL will bring him back, cook dinner and bathe him. I'm thinking to get a confinement nanny to help my post partum. The issue is who will help me prepare my no.1 for school and cooks his dinner? My MIL can help but I don't really want her over everyday as it will be too overwhelming with so many people at my house. After the nanny leaves, I intend to hire a helper who can help me with the household chores and meal preparations. This is, if I can convince my husband we need the help and I get a good helper. There's only one spare room for the nanny, hence I don't think I can have a helper at the same time too. As I'm may need to do c-sect... I really don't know how understanding my no. 1 will be. When he sees me around, he wants me to carry him, eat with him, bathe him and read to him... Just imagining this makes me stress.
