Without knowing your husbands exact income, it’s hard to give an accurate answer here lol
Maybe it’s not money that you’re missing, maybe it’s a sense of purpose or friendship or hard work
But if it really is money, try to get a job where you work from home

Because normal human beings want to feel productive. When your child is older you'll have more time to pursue money making opportunities.

OK, this is not going to be the answer you are expecting. But it's what you need to hear. How much have you invested yourself in the stock market, using an online brokerage account in your own name? You mention "luxury spending like new clothes", but a new mother has no use for such luxury spending. On the other hand, we all have to retire someday. And only a fool would depend on a spouse's retirement plan to cover all retirement expenses. If you are in the new mother phase of your life, NOW is the perfect time to get your extra money to work for you, using that power of compound interest...
A few small investments now, even less than a thousand bucks to start...
Could add up to millions in about 30 years. If you choose your investments wisely. Think of companies that regularly pay dividends (set your account to auto-reinvest the dividends), and are likely to be around still in 30 years...
