50,000 words sounds mighty, but wow, what an opportunity for one long, soul searching freewrite! I did Nanowrimo 2 years ago--albeit it was before the baby--but I would recommend, regardless of your time constraints. Maybe you won't make it to 50,000 words. So what? You'll get something down during those down moments. One hour a day of stream of consciousness writing (no stopping to edit or reread, just go go go) will get you to 50,000 words in 30 days.
Many Nanowrimo communities pop up regionally. Hook into a local group, where there is often a kick-off party to get you motivated.
