Many mothers, with babies younger than one year of age, are today working outside the home. The problem facing a working mother on the arrival of a baby are many. Should she give up her job? If not, when should she get back to work ? Should she breast-feed or not? How does she find a good caretaker or the right crèche?
If you are working out the necessity to supplement your household income, the question of giving up you job does not arise. But if you are working without any commitment and giving up you job does not entail any financial constraints, you can either give up your work or take leave to look after your baby. Remember, whether you are a working mother or a house wife, it does not affect the baby in the least, provided you can organize effective care for the child.
