How Can I Leave My Baby?

Take Care of Yourself

"Go on walks during breaks and take healthy snacks to work. When I went back to work, I got tired easily because I hadn't been exercising." --Catherine Kelly, Cortland Manor, NY

"Schedule times during the day (before or after work) to hang out with the baby so you don't feel like you're missing out completely. It sounds basic, but I was surprised how busy I was when I started working again." --Kristina Albright, Elk Grove, CA

"Let go of the idea of keeping the house clean. If it gets done, it gets done. If not, don't stress. Your children won't remember if the house was clean or not, but they will recall the time you spent together." --Monica Shackleford, Thousand Oaks, CA
