  • Luckily my mother watches my son. I went back to work when he was 6 weeks old.

    Advice: buy a great breast pump if you're breastfeeding!

  • I feel your pain especially at only 8 weeks. I had a year off & went back with my first and my post partum depression kicked in late due to that, the anxieties, knowing this & trying to focus on work was very hard. GL to you and I hope you have your baby in real good hand while you are back to work.....hugs.

  • Who is watching your baby? Can you set up a web cam so that you can check in periodically.

    Good Luck and *hugs* to you.

  • it's hard the first week, but it gets a little easier as time goes on. One thing is it's completly normal to want to leave. give yourself time to greive over the fact that you must go back to work and have less time with your baby.
    good luck to you!
