After preparing to return to work, you must be able to accept the situation to divide the time between the family, including the little one who still needs you and also the job. You can manage your emotions so that you don’t get lost in sadness and also get support from your husband and extended family.

4. Train babies to drink breast milk from a bottle
Equally important is the preparation that you have to do with the support of your own child, prepare your child to consume breastmilk from a bottle so that this makes it easier for him to get used to consuming breastmilk while you are outside the home.

While you can share it with the closest person, namely your husband, you can divide the tasks when you get home. If your husband is unable to help you due to out-of-town assignments, you can prepare a nanny well before you work, this is done because your child needs to know the nanny and is getting used to his presence. You should not handle problems at home yourself, you can ask your family for consideration when choosing a nanny for your little one.
7. Make Time For Yourself
Take some time for yourself to spoil the remaining time on the weekend. Especially for those of you who are busy with work routines, occasionally you can invite your family to just enjoy gardening, traveling or eating together.
8. Wear clothes
You can wear comfortable work clothes according to your current body condition. Changes in weight will make your clothes uncomfortable to use, you can choose some comfortable clothes in sizes that match your current weight before you start a diet program again.
9. Milk milk at work
You can communicate with your boss about your little one’s needs so that you can use the lunch break to milk your little one’s next supplies.
Thus, for you, a career woman or having a busy life outside the home after giving birth, you should be able to be professional at work and also take care of your little one, so that it will not affect your psyche, which becomes depression and prolonged stress because you cannot handle it.
