Bad Choice

Dani aka Kamries mommy - January 24

Well, A few days ago I posted a question asking if I should take a promotion which requires 60 hours a week for 4 weeks. Well, I took the job and I think that Kamrie already hates me for it. Today when I got home I went to pick her up and she screamed. She acted like she did not even know me. Also, she seems to be loosing interest in br___tfeeding. What should I do? Should I quit or stick it out?

Tough choice. Here is my two cents. When I had my first baby, I went back to my salaried management position. I worked from 40-60+ hours a week. At first, honestly, I was relieved to have time away from my girl....I was stressed at home by myself, and needed "me" time before I went crazy. Looking back, I missed alot, took things for granted. I have pretty much decided that I am not going back to work now that I have a second one. I want to spend those first two or so years with her and soak in the tiny baby love. :-) I do not regret anything, but when my first started to get bigger, I missed that crying little infant she used to be. Crazy, huh? I go to school, too, and I plan on staying at home, getting my degree, and trying to earn a little money as I can. I can start over career wise in a few years.

Thanks Meredith, that really makes me think.... a lot. Kamrie really is the most important thing in my life. But the only thing is that this is the only job that I have ever had and I am really afraid that quiting after all the special accomidations (sp?) they have made for me will look really bad when I am ready to go back to work

OK, this is coming from a SAHM. I think you should stick with it. I wish so bad that I would have gone to work. I have been home with Amaya now for 8 months and have seen how stressful it is on Chris (dh) to provide for us. I know you would be working, but just think, with your new job, you could do things like never before. You will have more money, the same working days (after training). Your job might be a little more stressful but your homelife will be easier. You can pay bills on time (not saying you arent) but, in our home (before dh got premoted about 3 months ago) we were living paycheck to paycheck and that sucks. I think you just need to spend that time with her when you are home and make it extra special. She will forget and forgive you.

I agree with Amayas Mommy. After you are done with the training she will totally forget about your long hours. She may be fussing for some other reason also. I would stick with the b___st feeding. What kind of bottle are you using? I use the Playtex VentAire and it works well for going between the b___st and bottle. Also can you think of anything else that could be making her fussy?
