You should look into assistance programs like WIC and food stamps. It sucks to be on them but they can be a real life saver. Having a stay at home parent is tough on a budget. I'm a stay at home mom and my husband gets a little over $3000 a month from his VA disability, plus GI Bill money for going to school. I also get some money from the VA for school. And still our budget is extremely tight.My only suggestion as far as work is concerned is to see if you can have alternate schedules so that one of you is always with your son. If one can work during the day and the other can work at night you won't have to worry about child care. Of course, you won't get a lot of sleep and you won't really get to see each other. Or, just keep looking for at home work possibilities. A lot of jobs, like medical transcription, can be done from home. Maybe try going to an employment agency or your local unemployment office to find legitimate at home work.
