A mum who realized she had to quit her job after becoming pregnant is now relishing the decision as she earns £15,000 a month from her own business.

Jade Wood, 38, knew she couldn’t continue her 50-hour-a-week job and give her second daughter the attention she needed.

So, with a heavy heart, she stepped back from her high school teaching career and welcomed young Piper into the family.

While caring for the youngster, she used her free time to start her own business, making silicone toys for children – and soon the orders were pouring in.

What do you think of Jade’s business? Let us know in the comments…

Speaking to kidspot, Jade, from Melbourne, Australia, said: “I knew it wasn’t possible to continue my old career with the life I wanted for my family, so this gave me a purpose to create a new one.

“It had to work, I had no choice. It was my motivation. I worked during breastfeeding, naps and especially at night until late.

In 2017, with six-month-old Piper, Jade designed her first product, a shooting star teether, which she sold on her website, Little Woods.

Watching her child grow, Jade got some new ideas and soon her product line expanded and she started selling silicone utensils which have a spoon on one end and a circle-shaped fork on the other. .

She added: “It works well because babies stab food randomly, and with this style the food gets stuck in the cavity between the teeth, making it easier for them to bring it to their mouths.”

Now Jade’s business is booming, bringing in over £15,000 a month, and she works only a fraction of the time – instead spending more precious hours with her family.
