Managing Baby And Home The Super Mum Way

You're a super-mum! I'm a super-mum. In fact, all us mommies are super-mommies, each day of our lives, whether we realise it or not.

A working mum, a stay-at-home full-time mum, a mum who takes care of her official duties from home, a woman who knows what she wants and a lady who is best friend to her little one....Yes, all us mums are that and much much more! As we get busy with the daily routine of baby, home, school, office, kitchen, husband, and, if sometimes we can manage to squeeze it in, then some time for ourselves too....the level of multi-tasking that mommies do on a regular basis is simply outstanding!

Getting back to work after having a baby is always a complex experience, one that involves (or may involve) a lot of planning, patience, checking, anxiety, confidence and tears (and not always baby's!).

With a process so critical as this, there are a few extra helps that a super-mum can go to when it comes to getting back to work routine after getting your little one in the family.

Grandparents: Sometimes, it's good to take the help of in-laws, of course if they are willing to take care of baby, which, in most cases, they gladly will. Not only does it take your mind off worries related to your child's safety, it also gives your little one the chance to bond with the grans and for you to gain some brownie points, both at office and within the in-law circle.

Nanny: Getting the right carer for your baby involves a lot of background checks, but once you find the right one, chances are it's a good thing for your baby and you. While you get some 'me' time and time to concentrate on work, a professionally-trained nanny can help your child with various basic skills and learning methods, along with proper care and safety.

Day Care: You may be extremely lucky if you happen to find one that's close to your office. That way, not only can you supervise your baby during the day, you can also make it a routine to have lunch or a snack together with baby even while you're in office! Letting your baby with other little ones is a great way for letting build some early social development skills.

Father's Day: Having an understanding partner can make all the difference, isn't it? Try and coordinate with your hubby. Plan important meetings and days a little in advance. This way, you get your space and time while hubby gets some quality one-on-one time with baby.

Flexibility in Office: Offices in India are slowly becoming sensitive to the needs of mothers, especially new mothers. Flexible timings, shift systems, work-from-home options are all great ways to make sure your career gets the right amount of attention while you get to spend those magical moments with your little one.

Working From Home: That's always a good idea if you can get that option. Not only does it give your little one and you to figure out separation anxiety, it also lets you stay in touch with your 'work' side while you play a full-time mommy.
