How do I cope being a mom and working full time?

I went back to work when my daughter was 7 months and I'm unsure how to do everything (she's now 1 years old) by that I mean I feel terrible when I can't sit and play with with her because I work in a bar so don't see her much (not nearly enough) but I need the money..... Help a momma out?

Hey hun it's never easy but I can tell you this, it might seem like you're not seeing her much but she's will grow up to appreciate that mummy worked hard to make sure she had everything she needs. Please try look into Hybrid working in an office that could be more beneficial for the two of yous. Don't beat yourself for being a provider. Xx

I know you feel bad about it, but you can do small things that matter. My parents left me when I was young and came back and got me 4 years later. I would say even if you are away, you have to give your kid signs that you are still there, perhaps a toy that signifies you. You also have to consistently talk to them and let them know. You may think she is too young, but she would understand your intent when you express that you have to go to work so she gets food, but you will be back. My parents thought I didn’t understand and didn’t say anything. I didn’t understand in words, but I understood in other ways.
