5 Tips for Going Back to Work After Baby
Resuming work after having a baby is a very crucial decision. There are various things you need to consider before taking this step. You need to first mentally prepare yourself and make this decision with a calm mind. You cannot panic and keep worrying about how will things work out; you need to plan and everything will fall in place. Here are 5 tips for going back to work after baby.
1. Ask for a flexible work schedule
If it is possible, take special permission from your office to work only a few hours in the initial weeks and later start following the usual working hours. Also take permission if you could work from home all the days or a few days in a week. This would make your transition very convenient and easy.
2. Hire an efficient nanny
You need to make sure that there is a family member at home who is constantly there to take care of the baby in your absence. To make things easier, hire a nanny who is well trained in handling and managing a baby. This would make you feel calm and relaxed that your baby is in safe hands and you will be able to focus on work.
3. Prepare according to your schedule
Make sure you are doing all the work at night before going to bed so that you can peacefully leave for work in the morning. Select the clothes, sterilize the bottles and other things that need to be, give instructions to your maid and nanny about what all needs to be done. If you organize and plan well, things would fall in place. Try following the new routine for trial a few days prior to resuming office.
