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?

Would any of you be willing to complete a survey about returning to work from maternity leave? I’m trying to look at support... thank you! https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/N2LK7ZM

Hey it does get better with time. I have struggled going back to work with all of my kids when they were babies. I have been a full time mom and a full time worker throughout my years of having kids. I have done both. It is different for each kid and for each situation. I just got my call back to work starting feb. 10th since I get laid off every year in early November. Luckily it is less hours for the first couple of months. But eventually it will pick up to more. Last yr. I was working 10-13 hour days. It helps that I LOVE my job. But I do miss and worry about my kids when I am not with them.

Hey hun, I haven’t read the majority of comments, so I apologise if I duplicate what’s already been said!! I totally understand where you’re coming from; I spent the whole time beating myself up with my first baby about work/being at home/being a good mummy etc etc. This time round I think I’ve found my solution, which is working mainly from home... it’s a work in progress as it’s a little business that I’m building gradually, and I reckon I may still need to go back to the pub a night a week come May... but I’m set on making it work because nothing is worse than mummy guilt! (Other than having no money AND mummy guilt!) xx
