What jobs can a 10 year old do?

A 10 year old can mow lawns, wash cards, feed/walk dogs, help around the house. It is against child labor laws to hire anyone under 16 for "real" jobs.There are no jobs for a 10 year old. You are too young. Child labor laws prevents employers from hiring under the age of 16. You could mow lawns, walk/feed dogs, do chores for people. Babysitting is out until you are 14 or 15 years old.

You are pregnant in 5 mounths Could you breast feed your baby girl of 1 year and 8 mounths?

More than likely, no. Your milk should not come completely in until the onset of labor. Attempting to express milk or feed another child can also cause early labor,something you certainly don't want at 5 months. When your baby gets here, you don't want you older child to want to feed on your breasts too. This can cause sibling jealousy, when baby is getting to eat, and big sis isn't. I personally wouldn't recommend trying it.
