Returning to work!

Hi everyone I have a 2.5 month old and I’m returning back to work the 28th of this month and I’m freaking out! How did you cope with leaving baby? I’m thinking he’s going to have to go part-time to a daycare which is scary for me and the other days, he’ll be with my sister. HELP!

    Honestly nothing about it is easy. It’s something that you’re going to have to take one day at a time. What worked for me is thinking about seeing my son after a long work day. I’d call on my breaks but that ended up making me sadder. Just try to stay positive and know that it’s totally okay to cry.

    Feeling scared is absolutely legit. We feel you mama 💜 It will be hard but deep breath! - save 10 minutes of each hour to just look at pictures of your babe. But limit yourself to just that time! - soak up the time you have at home with baby. Put your phone away, engage them in cooking dinner (put them in the kitchen with you), find ways to utilize that time. - let yourself cry when you miss them! Sending good vibes your way 💗 it's a hard transition.
