I Go back To Work From Maternity Leave

I go back to work on Wednesday from maternity leave. I work weird hours also. I go to work at 8pm and get off between 6-7ish am. It's mandatory on my job that you work overtime and they don't care about you having to leave or other obligations, they just want the work finish. My 1month and 3 weeks baby is on schedule, but what can I do with her doing the day while I should be sleeping...?

I say if you can fing a less stressful job. But I have been in your situation with third shift and let me tell you it was terrible. I would go to work and come home and sleep for four hours then go get my daughter and still be tired when I went back to work. I tried my hardest to be the best mom but I was so exhausted. Eventually my babysitter wouldn't watch her for those four hours anymore and I had to take her to her nanas. She did it for free but there was a period when I had no help and I would put her in her crib and she would cry but I was so tired. I met Nate and he started helping me and we have been together ever since. My daughter is going to be four soon and nate and I have a daughter who is a year old. Times can be rough but I have confidence that you will do just fine. If you need any further guidance let me know
