​Going Back to Work After Having a Baby - Boys Town Pediatrics Quick Tip

Dr. Heather Zimmerman M.D.

How do I handle the stress of going back to work?

It's best to go back to work at the end of a week. So you only have to go a day or two before you actually have to do a full week away from your baby.

The amazing thing about child care, as well, is a lot of daycare centers and in-home centers now offer you the option for you, to kind of, see your baby while at work. That's really reassuring to some parents, to be able to hop on the internet during the day and see a little web cam of where their baby is sleeping.

Transitioning back to work after having an newborn can be stressful. Heather Zimmerman, M.D. at Boys Town Pediatrics - Pacific Street give tips on how new parents can ease into this transition. ​
