If you are a single mama; either by choice or not so much by choice it can be tough sometimes to cope with raising a little without a partner but you can find support.
- Build up a network of friends and family who can give you a hand.
- Dip into your network and ask for help when you need it.
- Don't be perfect. Parents with partners have help usually with chores or baby care but if you don't it's harder to keep up. Don't fret though; perfection is in the eye of the beholder (truly) your baby seriously does not care if the bathroom is spotless -- I promise you.
- If you are not a single mama by choice; say, for instance your partner has simply flown the coop. Be sure to apply for child support. It's your right and especially your child's right. If you don't know where to start check with The National Child Support network if you're in the U.S. and the Child Support Agency in the UK. If you are elsewhere; type "child support" and your area into a search to find support.
