Back to work woes

Tips for making the transition back to working full time as easy as can be emotionally? My maternity leave ends soon and I am really struggling with the thought of being away all day. Was off 12 weeks, and he's my first. Thanks!!

This is just a vent.... this sucks! Today was my baby's 4th day at day care, my 2nd day going back to work and when I left her she cried so hard, like red faced, big tears, I could hear her as I walked away crying. I was crying as I walked out and have been for the past 15 minutes of my commute and probably will for the next 20 minutes. Hopefully I won't cry at my desk. The worst part was that I had to leave. Everything I've read says not to go back or linger if your baby cries when you leave her because it wip just make it more difficult for both of you. I am not a crier, at least not before she was born. Now, at the thought of not being with her my heart breaks. It took 19 years of marriage, several doctors telling me I would never get pregnant, and a miscarriage to get her and now I just don't want to be away from her. This sucks

I can’t bring myself to do it. She’s almost 4 months and I’m looking for a job to do from home or where I can bring her. (There’s not many) I bawl my eyes out every time I think of leaving her. I don’t trust anyone due to things that happened when I was little and things that happened to her father when he was little. It’s so frustrating because our instinct to be by their side isn’t wrong. The cost of living and the sacrifices we are making daily at our family’s expense isn’t the way our lives are meant to be. This is my view on it at least. Good luck with it just remember many women do it and get through that hard transition.

If you can get your parents, in laws or a loved one to watch your baby for a little bit when you go back to work rather than directly to daycare that may ease your worries. Plus if you dont already, get a camera(s) so you can peak st your baby anytime during work. Over time you'll likely peak less because you'll be so busy at work. I also took pictures with me to put in my office which helped. I hear daycares also send you "report cards" throughout the day with updates and pics of your baby. Good luck!

I'm getting a baby monitor I can access while I'm at work so I can check on her when I want. I'm getting one for my mother in law's living room. That's who keeps her during the day while I'm at work. Then I'm getting another for her bedroom so I can check on her at night while her dad has her until I get home. I've found it's easier on days that people send me pictures and updates but it's hard for them to do that constantly so this was a nice way to settle it.
