Hi everyone -
I may be faced with the prospect of changing to nights (7p-7a). I'll have a newborn soon and am trying to conceive of life on the night shift while newly returned from maternity leave. I've read the advice on black out curtains and the importance of ensuring that everyone in the house understands the imperative of allowing me to sleep during daytime hours, but hoping for some comments on how functional nights have been for those new moms who either have or are working nights. How did it go/how is it going?
I ask because I may have the chance to stress to my director that nights would create undue hardship and I'm wondering if I should go that route.
Thank you in advance for your input.
