Have any of you moms worked 3rd shift for full time before? What were the pros and cons?

I am a 25 year old wife and mother of two. My youngest is in preschool, and it limits my schedule during the day. So I've thought about taking on 3rd shift position. My husband works during the day and we need the extra income right now.

  • I've worked the night shift 7-2 am when my son was young. The pro's are you are there to get him to school in the a.m. and do other things that you need to do during the day. The con's are - not much sleep. Good thing I was so young then. I really enjoyed those hours though.
