Im enjoying my Baby, its the bets time of my life but all my friends are still in school and ive been finding it hard lately just sitting at home everyday doing the same thing without change. I was thinking of going to work one day of the week, or if there is anyone who lives in Australia, Nsw Terrigal that has a baby aswell that is about my age because its hard when all my friends dont understand.

Should i go back to work for a couple days a week or just wait because the best part is just starting?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

all i wanted to do was stay at home with bubs.. I was trying to prove I could be super mum.. never get grumpy etc.. but i was lying to myself.. it is hard staying at home day after day having to jump at your babies every need, i don't find myself selfish for going to work once a week as it gives me a chance to vent.. I work every saturday while my boyfriend is spending time with our daughter.. it gives him a chance to spend the day with her.

I think it would be helpful for you to find an outlet for some of your energy! Stay home as long as you can because you'll feel horrible missing out on some of those milestones (trust me I know I had my boys in the middle of the school year so I had to go back to school only weeks after they were born and it was really difficult) With my daughter I'll be able to be home until the end of August so she'll be 4 months before I have to leave her but in order to keep myself sane until then I excercise while my kids are napping and I make artwork to put up in their bedrooms. Hobbies are a great way to make the time go by and they are enjoyable.

I am letting you know from experience that if there is any chance that you can stay home with your child and not worry about money its the best thing you can do. I had to go back to work when my daughter was 6 weeks old and i don't like it. Now my daughter is almost 7 months old and i wish i could spend more then 2 whole day and every night just putting her to sleep. I am waiting for my husband to leave for the army in august so i can stay home with her.
