Ask your boss for a flexible schedule or to work from home: You canâ€™t focus on work when youâ€™re constantly thinking about and longing to be with your baby. Maybe itâ€™s best to meet with your boss to discuss a more time efficient schedule for you. Donâ€™t be afraid to explain to him or her how you can meet the demands of your job as it coincides with your parental duties. Some bosses request that you take some more time off, or work from home if the job requires. There is a way to work around being a full-time working mother.
