Hi I am currently due to return to work in January when LO will be 8 months. This was due to financial reasons. Now she is here I am considering stretching it to the full year when she will be 11 months old. I feel that I will get to see a few more of her milestones and won't be as devastated when I have to return to work. However, I will struggle financially. Do you think it is worth it? I am a single parent and I think I will find working with a LO very difficult, but I might also welcome the adult conversation, etc. Besides that, I have to work. I am after advice from your own experiences. Does finding good childcare make a difference to how you feel when you return to work? I am so confused and I am struggling to make a decision.
