I'm considering a job that would entail 3 long night shifts (7am-7pm) a week. My son is 5 months old.
In some ways this seems ideal... a full-time salary with 4 days off/week, no childcare needed (my husband already does a lot of the nighttime parenting, and is a pro at it). But then I wonder if I will be able to handle working for 12 hours then coming home to parent for the day, with very little opportunity to sleep on work days.
Any night shift mamas out there who have made it work? Words of widsom?
