In the last 2 years I’ve been blessed with 3 grandchildren. One of them is barely 7 months. I take care of her one day a week and on weekends usually one day or both days with my husband. With Covid now, in my area of the States, daycares are folding because babies are getting Covid. My granddaughter being one of them. So far she’s been a real trooper although difficult to get her to eat much as I’m sure her sense of taste is gone as her mother’s has/ she got Covid despite being vaccinated. Finding help for childcare is maddening as working mothers are all scrambling to find nannies and sitters. My daughter is a veterinarian and her husband does travel. They are excellent parents but they are unable to stay home with children. And now Covid.
I want to help so badly. With fatigue being my biggest issue can I? How do y’all do it?I’m very tempted to up my prednisone to cope with it and help. I don’t feel obligated to help. I adore her. Also I do have a spine condition which is limiting. When she was very small I was able to put her in a carriage and wheel about the house and yard. Does anyone have advice on how I can help? How do y’all do it? I know handicapped parents do it. How can I be a caregiver/grandmother?🙏🏻👶
