    Thats the crux of this for me. Personally, my own circumstances, no I wouldnt want to go back to work and leave my baby. Its not how I would plan it. But I would never judge another for making a different choice to me.

    Yep I did. I went back to work when dd1 was 10 wks old for 8-12hrs a week in 2-3x 4hr shifts. I was so depressed and lonely at home.

    And I expressed and continued to bf her till she was 19mths old. She didn't start daycare till 16mths old tho and till then was either with Dh or my mum.

    I went back when dd2 was 7mths old as we bought a house and needed my income.

    I work 15-22hrs a week but the girls are in daycare only 2 days a week. I do lots of weekend work.

    OP, perhaps you could look into becoming a family day carer or a "mummy nanny"?

    I personally enjoy working outside the home, my workplace is very social and full of vibrant interesting people. I often say I go to work for the social side! I did briefly look into fdc when a woman I know started to do it.

    The pros appeared to be: working from home, socialisation for your own child, reasonably profitable

    The cons for me: long days at a fraction of my current wage, having to be vigilant about tidiness (I'm not a neat freak), the fact that I'm not hugely fond of the idea of working in childcare.

    The people I know who do it find it hugely rewarding though. I think that if it is a good fit for a person, it could be a great job.
