Unhappy Going back to work

Any of you June mothers gone back to work yet? I go back next week and I am pretty terrified of having to take my baby to daycare. I think that I will end up crying like a baby.

Re: Going back to work

I've been back for almost a month now. I think leaving Olivia at daycare was the hardest out of all my babies cuz she was only 6 weeks. My daughter was 4-5 months before she started daycare and my boys were 2years old. But it helped that my boys go to the same daycare and I already know everyone there. They all love her.

I started back Aug 13th and it was fine for me. I have a great sitter who I trust and she's great w/ our girls. I had 8 wks off and only about 6 were paid. I so wish the US had better maternity leave. They really screw working moms in this country.

Re: Going back to work

Holly, you are so right!

I came back last week, after 8 weeks off. The more times I do it, the harder it gets
I take comfort that he is in the care of the same people that cared for Paisley, but I wish I was the one he was smiling at all day long.

I'm lucky in that my sitter will send me photos and updates via texts while I work. I enjoy seeing what theyre doing while I'm gone.
