Hard to make the decision without trying it out. I work nights in my profession as get more hrs in otherwise probably would only do 3 days. Because im only on 3of my 4 nights my boss gets me to write leave without pay each roster so maintain fulltime syatust and benefits as I may want to go back later to that after bubs is bigger and easier then dropping to parttime changing mind and not being able to pick up my other 10hrs again.

I would suggest phasing in to full time work. Maybe do the 4 days for a month before upping it to 5 days.
I'm currently working 5 days and my DP has been working 3 days but is about to go back full time. For us though it wasn't about financial considerations (although I do earn ore) but rather that my job can't really be done part time and now he's getting bored in his job and it will be easier for him to find something full time.
I've been full time since DS was 8 months old. Luckily he loves day care (he's just started full time). I think the earlier they start, the easier they find it but the harder it is for us ifkyim.
I'm hoping that by the time he's in school I can reduce my hours each day a bit (not that I've told my boss that yet).

Just to update/for closure :-) I spoke to my boss today and will go back to work 4 days. Have Wednesday off so dd has a break from childcare in the middle of the week.
I feel so good today now; it feels like the right decision and I can pick up to 5 days when I need to.
Thanks again for all of your advice!
