Re: Anyone here work FROM home?

I'm in a very similar situation. It's really hard to focus on work when I'm working and focus on the kiddo when I'm supposed to be spending time with her. I always feel like I'm letting someone down! :/

Re: Anyone here work FROM home?

Yes, I have three kids and I've worked from my house for the last 7 years. My company is based in another country, and my US headquarters is about 3 hours away, so I have no option to go into an office. I LOVE it. I have so much flexibility. I was a bit tired today, and I had a break between meetings, so I took a nap as my "lunch".

I only travel to my clients and for international meetings once in a blue moon, but I used to do it with more regularity. I will say, if you want to BF, make pumping and giving a bottle a regular thing. With my youngest, I never gave him a bottle, because I didn't need to do so, and if I had to travel, it wouldn't have worked.

Set your self "in office" and "away from office" times, and stick to them. If you have team members in Asia and you have to check in at odd hours, keep them to one-two hour check ins. Don't work all night.

Don't forget to write off your office space on your taxes. And anything that your company doesn't reimburse you for office supply and utility wise.

Re: Anyone here work FROM home?

I worked from home since my son was 3 y.o. and could attend a kindergarten, it was impossible to start earlier as most of time I dedicated to him and other home routine like cooking, cleaning, etc. I think if some of you moms still want to work remotely, you just need to look for a free schedule, or at least find someone to help you taking care of a child. There are a lot of info in the web revealing peculiarities of freelance writing, I highly recommend to check it before defining with a remote job. I personally work a writer for this service , conditions are just perfect.

Re: Anyone here work FROM home?

A home office with a door is a must, different floor is preferable. We don't have this situation but occasionally my husband or I work from home and the other might be watching the kids. We do Mommy is leaving for work with hugs and everything and in the office with door closed. Unless the plan is to breastfeed everytime. I'd say hubbys not allow to come in unless it's an emergency or you come out. Maybe initially he can but not when baby is say 9m+. Once Mommy leaves for work she's gone until she comes back on breaks. After breaks make a routine of "leaving for work again".

Traveling will be tricky, can DH travel with you while breastfeed? No fun for him though. Read up on posts on storing milk while traveling and get your supply at home built way up if you are bfing full-time. If part time formula, still pump even if dumping while away.

Good luck!!
