Hi Rashmi,\n\nThanks for connecting with me here. I completely understand your situation, having been through this dilemma myself. This is one of the main reasons I choose to be a WFH worker, even when I get lucrative offers regularly to join an office setup. My daughter is 3 and I can't bear to leave her in someone else's hands. So I get it. \n\nFirst, talk to your current company for work from home opportunities. Maybe they can help you - you'd never know until you ask. So first try that.\n\nSecond, browse through Sheroes and other freelancing sites to find open WFH positions that will fit your profile. Connect with these people and snag projects. You can start with simple projects that take a few days and then as you build your confidence, you can move on to monthly retainer positions.\n\nRegarding your baby, create a workspace where you can be with your baby. Get ideas online. In my office, one corner is dedicated to my daughter so she can be with me while I'm working. And you have to start talking early to your baby about your work. My daughter is 3 but she realizes I need to work every day, except Sundays. If someone comes into my office when I'm working, she is the first one to tell all that "Mamma is working". So start talking to your baby early about your work. Your baby will become your biggest supporter. Keep lots of books available and toys too. And manage your time efficiently so that you don't feel you're ignoring your work or your baby. There are times when my baby sits on my table colouring Peppa Pig or Pocoyo, and I'll be telling her to choose the right colors while I code in PHP. So be prepared to multitask, to the extreme.\n\nI can go on with stories like this, but the main point here is you can work with your baby in tow. Nothing is impossible. You don't need anyone else, except maybe a couple of maids who can take care of cooking and housekeeping (though you have to be vigilant on them too!)\n\nDrop me a line, if you have any questions.\n\nThanks! \nAnkitaaView Less
