I started back to work on the 28th, and have been struggling with the decision this week.
I started back part time for 2 weeks, and worked MWF - will go full time on the 12th.
I have a 45 min + commute, and with this, pumping time, and work day - I am/will be away from her about 12 hours every day. I am a computer consultant so sometimes my days will be even longer.
Monday was rough but went as expected. Wednesday she went to the sitters at 7:15 am, I left for work shortly after, and didnt get home until 10:30pm. 15 hours apart
Friday morning we were running late due to a rough night and I didnt have time to BF - I sent her off with a bottle of expressed milk. She went from a feeding at 3 am until 9 pm when I got home - 18 hours between Breast Feedings.
When I got in DH told me she was crying for 2 hours AFTER he fed her. She hasnt wanted to be away from the breast since. I feel horrible. I think shes going through withdrawal. me too
how do i make this easier for her? I am about to quit my job...
