Hiya ladies, in the past when I have had issues you lot have been fab at giving advice and suggestions on what to do so here i am again!
Im due to go back to work on the 18th of October.. and im not even going to lie every ounce of my being is screaming “No dont go back! He’s too young, you can’t do this”. My LO will be 9 months old. The ideal scenario for me would be to stay off till he was 1 Year Old - however, My partner and I both calculated that it would honestly be such a struggle! Especially being as the holidays will be closing in and we all know what an expensive time of year this is plus, it will be my boy’s first christmas so I obviously want to make it amazing! We wouldn’t be able to do so on such little money. So, here’s my issue..
I am a carer and i would only do 12 hours a week (2 6hour shifts) my question is: how did you working mums do it? How did you “let go”? Was it difficult? And if you breastfeed, did your supply take a hit? What did you do to ensure it?
Any advice would be amazing!
