I went back to work when my son was around 4 months old, it can be really hard, but there's always something to be said for having time with other adults to converse with. He's now 8 & 1/2, and finally starting to understand why we have to work...

if you have someone that is willing to look after your son while you are working or studying i think you should definately try to work or study, otherwise if you dont have anyone to look after your son while you study i am currently doing my bachelor of accounting through open universities it is like normal university (fee wise and everything) but they send you out all your work and you basically earn your degree bachelor from home apart from having to attend exams which is basically the only time you have to attend a uni etc.

It is a juggle, I have four kids, work part-time and am attempting to study part-time aswell. There never seems to be enough hours in the day, but I think one or the other should be fine first then consider adding a second activity when you gain in confidence. I always felt bad going back to work when the kids were so young, but they don't suffer for it and you can look forward to a big smiling welcome when you come home! :P
