Working Mom and Hubby Works 2nd Shift--baby on the way! HELP!

Hello I need some tips and pointers on how to keep my sanity when I return back to work after our baby is born. I currently work 9-5 mon-friday, my hubby doesn't have such a set schedule he works for a family shop and his schedule is set to when he needs to be there mostly it's 2nd shift that goes from 3pm-2am. My concern is that when I go back to work after maternity leave I'll end up going crazy from working all day and then being the only one able to get up for the baby feedings. We both need to work and because of the hours we will still have to have daycare during the day when I am at work but does anyone else have a similar situation like mine and if so do you have any tips for keeping your family sane and happy?! Thank you!

My now ex husband and I did. I worked retail so my schedule was all over the place, he worked 6p-2am and we didn't do daycare. My ex would take the feedings from 3a till I left for work. I found that as long as I got a solid 4 hours of sleep I could function. My ex would sleep in on days I worked late or caught up on his days off.
