Srsly. Nowadays difficult to get maid. Pinay and Indon now prefer to go HK or even Taiwan for those who can communicate in basic Mandarin, because pay much higher.

Cannot let elderly take care overnight one. Hire a maid and put at their place together with baby in day time. Night time take back ownself suffer.

Same boat as you. First baby in the family she was very excited and says she will take care since she also has a maid. First 2 months I care for the baby myself. 3rd month she ask me to hire a maid bcos her maid need to take care of her dogs.

Infant care, then dun engage helper. For my case now or rather few more years, i might have to keep the helper with change of plan.. while 1st child enrolling playgroup.

Ifc etc, should be ard 500 with working mum subsidy up to 300dollars. Still manageable.

I am giving my mil and sil 500. Maid including levy at 600 (excluding makan, toiletries etc).
Well, can pull through one lar. Plan properly. Money not an issue. Put the baby cash bonus into good use. Good thing is paid out partial by partial.

What both ur work hours like? Let me try figure out
Had thought abt it but full day infant care costs much more than maid and maid can also do other stuff like clean the house. Also infantcarr need to pick up by certain time and me n Wife both work Long hrs. But maid I worry will mistreat child. If do both hire maid and send child care one mth 2k plus gone. I not so rich.

Singapore culture is like that. My atb wife parents feels it's an obligation to take care of their grandchildren. I don't even need to ask them. But if I ask my sinkie parents, I can already forsee 1000 excuses from them.

When I initially told my mum I consider infant care 1.6k she said she will take care instead n ask me pay her that. Now she chut stunt say no ability take care of baby. Sigh
Are you willing to pay her $1.6k if she is willing to look after?

Young couples take care of infant/toddler also hei hei chuan.Let alone our ageing parents.If parents bo xin to take care also cannot blame them.Those experienced home based nanny is another option.If u want to hire maid,you got to install cctv in the house.

Helper is not an option unless for household chores etc. Kio tao kio buay that kind.

In ts case, this option is out.
Ideally is ifc only. Must be prepared for sick etc. Chumxiong with employer on working hours. Am sure most understand/got family.
