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 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

There are ways out there! I have a job from home I do translations on tape tho so it’s rare to find that but I have done like customer service and stuff. I did start a business tho and that has completely helped me be able to stay home full time! I still do my translations because I work for the justice system wit it and that’s pretty rad and it’s not a lot of hours but you just gotta be willing to take a look at other things. I’d be more than happy to tell you what my business is too and it doesn’t cost anything to try it so you could always give it a try before deciding what you really want to do work wise!
