Hi all,

As posted before, I have 4 month old (1 week less) baby girl. Right now my parents are with me to help me with the household work, but soon they will be leave. I will have to take care of my baby alone. No soont sure how will I manage. Right now as soon as my baby sleeps I do my ablutions. I even manage to cook a bit in the evening. But not sure how will cook in the morning, now that she has started to roll-over. Please suggest ways to look after my baby and take care of her too.

TIA

Your welcome dear, and good luck with your little one. You will see that when your family leaves that you will do just fine and remember that letting a few chores go is ok in order to spend some snuggle time with your baby! It goes so fast

You'll find a way don't worry. I had a space in every area of my house that was safe for baby . I had a bouncy chair in the kitchen so when I would cook I could keep an eye on her at the same time. I just took her along with me when I did my chores and sang and talked to her while I was doing them. It makes things take a bit longer since there are diaper changes and crying babies during the middle of making dinner but after a few burnt dinners you will figure it out lol( I was making pasta and my lo wanted to eat so I sat down to breastfeed and whoops the pasta overflowed!) . It might seem overwhelming but you'll amaze yourself at how you learn to multitask

Have you tried baby wearing? I often put my 3 month old in our baby bjorn and it keeps her close to me while I do things around the house. I do meal prep, laundry, ect... but don't usually cook since I don't want to accidentally burn her.
