I never had hired help, but my dw stayed home for 4 weeks after our twins were born (two weeks paid, two weeks unpaid), and then my sister came for a week. So I wasn't alone with the babies until they were 5 weeks old. I felt like it was totally doable by myself. My babies nursed almost all day long, so there wouldn't really have been much for anyone else to do baby-care wise, and we weren't making much of a mess just sitting on the couch nursing, lol.

If we had the money, I would absolutely hire someone to help with the housework now. I think that's probably the only way we'd have a consistently clean house. I am a SAHM, but I don't actually stay home most days. I prefer to be out and about, so I easily get behind in clothes laundry/diaper laundry/house cleaning.


Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 6, 7, 8, 10, 12 & 12) in a small house with a lot of love.
