I am newly pg and considering having a long talk with my boss about it...the fact is, I really want to take new baby with me until he/she is at least eating solids (when I can work a little longer without feeding issues--pumping is not easy for me at all). The great thing is, we are in a big office building, and a woman who works for another company leasing onsite brings her little one with her to work a lot. They are a video production company, very different from our business, but everyone is used to seeing her schlepping him in. Since I am a slinging mama, I know how much I can actually do with a babe in sling, and I think this will help me to keep my job, and keep my hours up, while not losing my a$$ to childcare costs. Basically, if I cannot do this, at least for almsot a year, I might have to quit my job. Which, oddly enough, I don't want to do.
First time I have ever felt this way about a job (not wanting to quit).
