It is so hard as a new mom! Previously you dedicated yourself to work. Are you able to change your schedule so you have a 2-3 days a week in a row off? If you have three take one for yourself and two with your family? As nurses we often care for everyone around us and at work and take time for ourselves. Do not stretch yourself too thin. Advocate for yourself, speak with your supervisor and see if there is some way to change your schedule and let your supervisor know that between home and work you are about to fizzle out and how that bothers you on a professional and personal level. If your supervisor or management are not willing to work with you, time to find a new position where management values the employees. Good luck, enjoy your little one, and I hope everything works out!
