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?

We have all struggled with the guilt of not being around for all the special moments with our kids. With my youngest I had to send her to daycare at 3 months. The day I dropped her off at daycare I cried. It will be ok.

Don't feel guilty for doing your best and providing for your family. It makes you appreciate the time you do spend together all that much precious xx

I work a full time job working 4 to midnight. I am up with my girls in the morning and spend time with them. I also plan things on my days off. It's hard when you have a lot on your plate but you can do it momma

I went back to work part time when my little one was 7 months old as we needed money. It was only part time and evenings but I still struggled as i wanted to be at home with her. when she turned one I started working a little bit more due to financial reasons but still i coped and struggled as you do as a parent. She is now nearly two and I work days and evenings and range from 30-50 hours a week, it's hard on us all but on my days off I'll make sure I spend time with her, whether it's a lazy day at home or at the park, beach, moors etc. You will find a way that works for you, it can take a while or it will fall into place but when you have time off make sure you enjoy the moments with your baby. We as parents are doing a good job even when we are so tired because we have worked however many hours at a job but also looking after the household and family. X

I actually went back to work 2 months after each child was born. After my son 1st was born I looked into getting a live in nanny. I love it! The program is called Aupair of America. U can interview as many candidates u like, fro. Whatever country. U r assigned a counselor who will walk you through every step. My boys are now 3 and 4....I still have a nanny. May continue 2 more years. I need her to pick them up from school and be there when they get hm from school. I have to work. So when I get hm she's off. But that's how I have it set up. U make your schedule with them. As parents we gotta do what we gotta do. Hope's this helps!
