Find another mom willing to work it out with you and watch your child for a few hours on the weeks you work from home.

Would your mom be willing to come to your house the weeks you are at home? I know that might be a lot of traveling for her, but maybe worth checking. 

Otherwise, I think the idea of another mom might be good– they could make a little extra money by watching your baby along with their own, but still have that flexibility for the weeks you’d be in the office. Or, do you live near any colleges? I had friends who nannied while in school around their class schedule. I wonder if you could find, say, 2 different students whose schedules complimented each other to come on the off weeks. You’d probably be looking at less traditional options, but I think it can be done. 

Unfortunately, other than asking your mom, I think you would have to wait until you were pregnant to seek out the other options.

I work from home some days as well, and I have found that daycares run from someones home are more flexible. You may want to chek them out…ours is willling to adjust the schedule every week depending on our need. But I do hope I can work with home with the baby by my side some days.
