I am a single mom and I struggle to balance going to school and taking care of me baby. Does anyone have any tips? I was really upset but thought it was best I didnt take micro this summer so I cant apply this august but will have to wait till the end of the year. But thinking about it now, I am glad I did not because if I am struggling to balance school now how am I going to in the nursing program?! Well the reason I had issues is cause my baby hardly sleep, and is breastfed. Basically when she did go to sleep, if I moved to get up shed act like she was hungry, then fall asleep but when I tried to get up, she'd act like she was hungry. She wont take a bottle/sippy cup. Luckily, she is getting older and going to bed earlier, but still it is hard. So how did you mamas out there get school work done while taking care of your child/children? Oh I have to admit I have realized I am not good at managing my time. If she does take a nap in the day, I find myself on the computer or phone. Horrible I know.
