Hi..I have a three month baby and I'am going back to work soon. Feeling depressed knowing that I have to leave her. I wish I could be a stay home mom but, I this moment I can't. I feel no one will have the patience for her as I do. That no one would be able to put her to sleep. She's not your typical newborn she struggles to take her naps. I started her with the bottle so I know she won't starved because I strictly breastfeed. She wakes a lot during her naps so I normally give her the breast for her to finish her 1 hr nap. It's a lot of little things that worry me. I get to sad and depressed I don't want her to feel that I abandoned her. I think I'm going to go for part time if my boss lets me. Sometimes I think maybe I should get fire and that I could collect unemployment for a year just to stay with her I know that's bad thinking but I'm desperate I don't want to leave her! I hear about stay home moms complaining about being stuck with kids all day but they don't know how lucky they are .___.
