I just started working again after 2 months maternity leave. After some negotiation - my employer decided that I bring my daughter into the office with me 2 days a week. My choice was to be able to work 2 days from home. I wanted to see if anyone else brings their child to work with them and any advice on making it successful? Challenges that you face with it and how you dealt with it? Any comments would be helpful.....

I feel for you. After my first daughter, I went back to work after 4 months and it was so difficult to leave her. It will really depend on the tempermant of your baby, the atmosphere in your office, etc. is this situation can work out for you.



Is there any way you could work longer hours 3 or 4 days per week to allow you to have 1 or 2 days off? I do best when I can focus on one or the other. Honestly, I have found that I am not really great at being both Mom and Employee at the same time. I try to keep my work life and home life separate as much as possible. I focus at work, and I focus at home, but if I do both at the same time I feel like I am not doing either very well. That's just me. There are lots of women that can make this work, I wish you the best of luck!
