My husband and I are expecting in July (yay!!) and we are starting to think about childcare options. We've both been working from home since well before the pandemic, so our working situation won't be changing any time soon.
I am self-employed (hubby is employed), so my work schedule, once I return from taking time off, will be more flexible than his. Still, childcare will be a must.
We like the idea of having an au pair or live-in nanny, but we're staying open-minded about our options.
I'd greatly appreciate any advice/insight on these questions:
- What factors did you consider when deciding on which form of childcare would work best for you?
- Are there good websites that explain the different child care options?
Any other advice that you could provide would be great. Thanks so much!
