How do you juggle work/baby/school?

I need help convincing myself that these tasks are doable. I know I am capable of doing each individually full time. I've even got being a full time student and mom to a one year old down, however, I'm starting to question my abilities. Would adding full time work into the mix be impossible? I need a job in order to get a car and provide for my daughter and I. I need help finding the right schedule. And an estimated time management layout. I'm motivated to make this work but I want to be realistic. I don't want to lead myself with false expectations. I know this will be the hardest thing I've ever had to endure but I am willing to make it all work if it is possible. If you work, go to school, and have a baby, please share how you do it...

My daughter is 12 months and I currently take two classes every 8 weeks. I also actively breastfeed. My daughter is not in daycare and my mom refuses to have her go there but she rarely helps me care for her. I have tried bottle feeding and she's just not having it. I love my little to much to watch her suffer for something I can easily give her. I will be switching to part time courses (1/per 8weeks) in December. Should I wait until then to get a full time job?

Raye,

I don't want to put her in Day Care either but I don't have a choice. I just don't have the money until I get a paycheck. And I have a hearing in three months for support.

If your mom is not help you, why does she get any say in whether your child goes to daycare? Would you be needing her financial help to pay for it? Have you filed for child support from the baby's father?
