So I've just become a single parent and have no idea how I'm going to earn money and take care of my 9 month old. My mum could probably have him 1, 2 days a week max but what do I do on the other days when I need to work? I'm only on minimum wage so I couldn't afford for him to go to nursery. Is there such a thing as government sponsered nursery places? How do other people cope?
