Ok, so dh and I are trying to figure out (like I'm sure many of you are) what we are going to do after baby comes. Right now I am working full-time time as an at home care worker for the elderly. I love my job and want to keep my foot in at least part time, maybe full time if we have to.
Here is my question. After taking 6 weeks (maybe more if we can swing it) of maternity, what would the possibility be of my husband getting some sleep (because he will hopefully be working) if I do an overnight, or possibly two. I know infants have rough nights at first, but if that usually evened out by the second month? Or, if we end up needing me to go full time, maybe even possibly two nights in a row? I know particially we will have to play it by ear to see how baby is doing, but from your experiences, how would that work out? I know I will have to pump so he could do a midnight feeding.
Thanks for any input
