Infant Care? FDW? Other alternatives?

Hi Mummies! Im due in abt 3mths and im considering between an infant care or a FDW (mainly house work while my parents help with taking care of baby when im at work). Spoke to my husband but he isnt keen on infant care as he feels baby is too young for an infant care and that baby cnt really voice out if anything happens. If baby is like older and able to speak, he doesnt mind. If i were to get a helper, mainly will be to help out with household etc but i will take care of baby when my husband and I available. And when im working, baby will be with my parents. My mom will take care of baby while helper will jus be an extra pairs of hands. However, my husband is also not too keen on additional person staying at home. So im not sure what will work. Hope some of u experienced mummies can share some advice! TIA!

If I am you, I will go for FDW straight away since your parents are still the main caregiver when you are working. Babies in ifc can interact with one another but they also tend to fall sick more often. It’s very heartbreaking to see your LO fall sick.
