Be happy that your mother-in-law is taking care of your baby. He really will be fine. When I went back, I went part-time for two weeks. I also made the bottles, picked out her clothes, and made sure to give her a bath every night. It made it easier. I did work full-time for about 6 months, but ultimately found a part-time job that let me enjoy my career to a lesser extent and spend much more time with my daughter. You may want to think about it... Good luck.

Hi,

I remember having to go to work and leave my son with a sitter. It was very difficult and I wish I would have found this opportunity five years ago when he was a newborn.

I was wondering if you ever thought of working from home. I found this ad in a parenting magazine, so thats how I got started. I would really like to help you get started if that is an option for you. I am involved in a work at home program that has a great support system. We do no selling, no inventory, and have a great success rate. I understand this may or not be for you but I would love to share the information with you if you are interested. If you are, please visit www.workathomeunited.com/heinsb or www.livetotalwellness.com/heinsb. If not at this time, thats fine to. I just wanted to make you aware of this great opportunity. If its not for you maybe you could refer others who may be interested.



Sincerely,



Becky Heins

Hey Kim, I can imagine what you must be going through! The first couple of days are particularly difficult. If your employers are supportive and understanding, then call as often as you need to, just to reassure yourself that he is alright. Its harder for us moms than it is for the little ones, they adapt to the new situation fairly easily ....

i actually found it was easier to NOT have a picture of my baby at work because it just reminded me of how much time i wasn't spending with her. that's nice that a relative can watch him, we had to pay a stranger to watch our daughter. i can't say it ever gets easy but it gets more tolerable i guess. good luck, and know that you're definitely NOT alone! *hugs*

It is hard to go back and not think about you little one at home. But then again the fact that you are away from him for part of the day will make the time with him even that more special. Keep a pic of your little on on your desk or phone and call in from time to time just to check in on him so that you know what is going on during his day.

The first day is the worst and then gradually it gets easier. I was able to stay home with my son until he was 4 months old. I am part time right now, which has been a great transition for me...trying to get into the new routine and everything. My husband and I have conflicting schedules so it actually works well and our son is only in daycare for 2 days a week for 4-5 hours a day. We found a wonderful lady who has been doing childcare for 20 years and specializes in baby. Knowing your little one is with family will definitely calm your nerves...just know that a little you time makes you a better mommy :)

I also have my own Tastefully Simple business - it doesn't make me a millionaire but it affords me extra's and it's selling gourmet food - which is something that is easy to sell - you can check them out for yourself...here's my site - I am just a consultant for them and I earn up to 36% commission - if you think you can build a business this really is a great line...but you have to know yourself and the people who you would sell this to...it's not cheap but once people try it - then you have repeat customers - plus it's fun entertaining and doing gourmet taste testing parties - it's food so people will reorder it over and over again unlike Avon, Arbonne or Tupperware. Here's my site if it appeals to you!

If it hurts that much and you can afford it, don't go back to work. If you need to, then just tell yourself that you are doing what you need to for your family. Think of the great Grandma bond your son will be getting. Good moms also work out of the house.

I feel your pain....get your husband to drop him off for the first few weeks - that will make it easier...I have to put my 6mth old in daycare 2wk - and I can't wait to pick her - all the smiles you will get when you finally get there will melt your heart.....and you will learn after a while that you get a little personal time back.
