Going back to the 9 to 5 can be daunting, but there are ways to make it work for you and your tot
It’s important to settle yourself, your partner and tot into the new routine before you head back. “Do a day as you would when you’re back at work, from minor details like what you have for breakfast to dropping your baby off,” suggests Antonia Chitty, author of Family Friendly Working (www.familyfriendly working.co.uk).“This will reassure you that you can manage your working week, and show you that your baby will be fine too.”
“It’s also a good idea to practise your route a few times, double checking your train times or any road works that might slow you down on your first day,” says Gillian.
