Will working from home affect custody of a nb?

I'm thinking about working from home instead of going back to my family's business when my "maternity leave"is up. I handle all the accounts, finances, emails, and office work. Does this help with custody at all? My DD is 4 weeks old now and when she's older I do not want her in day care or left with baby sitters. If I do have to go in I am able to easily take her with me. BD works long hours 5 days a week and would not be able to watch her himself and I'm worried if it's split custody he'll leave her with his mom who lives in house full of chain smokers. I'd prefer she was with me since I can be with her 24/7 to ebf. Right now je only sees DD in his days off for about three hours. Supervised visits, someone from my family is always here with me.

As little as your daughter is, and since you're exclusively breastfeeding, it should be an advantage that you're going to be staying home with her.

 It's something to talk to a lawyer/legal aid about when your going to court.  Good luck.

We had a clause that if either of us needed daycare during our time (longer than 2 hours) the other parent was to be first to ask before using daycare. I believe its referred to as "right of first refusal"

Im sure it would help, but working from home while being the only one there to help with a baby is much tougher than it sounds. but, if it works for you, do it.
