“Till A Child Can Speak For Himself/ Herself I Don’t Leave Them With Nannies.. No Matter How Gangsta The Background Check” – Lami Phillips


Credit –

Going back to work after having a baby is a very emotional decision for many mothers, as they have to decide where to safely keep their babies while at work.

While some women hire nannies to stay with their babies at home, some prefer to take their babies to a creche, but for some mothers combining work and childcare is the way to go.

Singer Lami Phillips who recently welcomed her second child shares how she manages work and child care on her instagram page.


If we have a day meeting.. my able assistant #sunshine is with me.. like @diyolakingsleyjames said “buy one get one free”. Unless it’s an environment not conducive for her or late at night.. ( in which case my sis babysits )we are together . She’s with me in my office , meetings 🙂.. I did the same with #bestie . My thinking is .. till a child can speak for himself/ herself.. I don’t leave them with nannies.. no matter how gangsta the background check.. someone I trust will also be there .. God help us mums. It’s not easy.. both parents working and the environment we find ourselves in.. but I can’t shout! My Aunty will say” ” had I known” is a brother to Mr Late” 😂😂. Don’t make moves you will regret. No job or project is that important .
