I'm putting in for maternity leave at work and looking at options for my return. If we can afford it, I'm looking at taking 12 months off and then returning part-time.
I was hoping to work mornings only and leave at late lunchtime (1pm) Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri.
I was talking to another one of the girls at work though, and she says that my mornings will be so hectic with trying to get a baby off to daycare, and get myself ready and hubby get himself ready that I will be sorry I decided that, and she would rather for herself, do 3 full days a week and have two days off.
What do you think? My thoughts are that I would like to continue the breastfeeding relationship and be able to feed of an afternoon, rather than do a morning feed then a late 6pm feed and then a later one and then overnight. Also, I feel that working half days like that, won't feel like I'm leaving the baby for whole days.
