I have a baby girl who is nearly 6 months old. I worked the day before i had her and the day after i came home from the hospital. I own a cafe with my mum so i felt guilty about spending so much time away from work its a very demanding and stressful job. I want to know how do u cope, how do u find that balance and have you ever missed a 'first'???
I have missed the first time she smiled and laughed (she did it at her dad so it wasnt too bad0 but she rolled over for the first time on monday and she was with her carer and i cried because myself or her dad wasnt there to c it (my husband works away alot)
Does this guilt ever go away?
