    This is true. I looked into putting DS1 in for one day a week when DS2 was a newborn, because I was so exhausted and doing everything alone. I was told that I was entitled to 15 hours, and I was able to receive the whole amount (I was on the single parenting payment). I didn't end up putting him in, but it was comforting to know the option was there.

    I would not cope without childcare. I have no family support, even though we are now an hour away instead of nine..

    We run a business so ive been in and out of work for six years but it doesn't affect childcare as we are 50/50.

    I love my child free days and believe all us mums deserve them!
