3 Tips for Going Back to Work

Preparing for your return to work can be stressful. Having quality childcare in place can bring you some comfort, but you still want to make this transition easy for both you and your little one. Here are three more tips for going back to work:

  • Request flexibility. Working from home or working on an altered schedule can help you ease back into your routine.
  • Prepare for pumping. Having a dedicated space and schedule is essential for pumping at work. Talk to your boss about your options.
  • Prioritize your tasks. Using a planner, calendar, or app on your phone can help you balance your work, appointments, and to-dos.
