Working Girl

When maternity leave is over, these 9-5 must-haves will help you get through the day.

Returning to work post-baby can be bittersweet. Of course, there’s the obvious devastation that comes with leaving your new little bundle of joy at home, and nervousness that your caregiver just won’t cut it. But there’s also excitement about the prospect of re-entering the adult world, having a conversational partner that says more than “goo-goo, ga-ga,” and rediscovering that sense of self you checked at the hospital door before baby arrived. We promise: working mommies can be happy mommies, especially when you’re adequately prepared. Put these must-haves on your shopping list, and then…get to work!
