My baby is 6 months now.  Don't really want to go back to work.  Office work is kind of boring and not so flexible to picking up baby from daycare.  Any idea of what type of business a new mum could start?

It depends on a multitude of things. Your skill set and experience. A market for your product or service. Capital needed and capital available to set up and run the business. Time available to devote to running and growing the business. Council permits and licenses required.

The way you have asked the question and the fact your desire to start a business is because office work is "boring and inflexible" indicates a degree of naivety in your approach to this issue.

Do some research about actually starting a small business. The government website for small business has a wealth of information.

And please don't consider those dreadful party plan linen/jewellery/cookware/plasticware/cosmetics/anything models.

As a mum who ran a business from home for 7 years. You need a little more than a desire to avoid boring office work. From a start up.... Without a solid idea in the market - good luck.
