    Default Returning to work - night shift


    Im returning to work this week due to financial issues, DS is only four months old so I have managed to find a night shift job so he doesn't have to go into daycare.

    Can anyone give me advice on how they coped with working nights then looking after a baby during the day. I'm working 3 nights a week on a alternating roster.

    DS is BF exclusively so I will be expressing during work as well. I'm really not looking forward to it as I have never left him for more than a few hours

    Any tips etc would be greatly appreciated.

    sleep when he sleeps

    relax a little on housework where you can

    take it easy on yourself

    make sure your partner helps balance the housework
