Congrats on your new position! I started postpartum on nights, did a few years, and now work on days. At most places, day shift tends to be a little busier. During the day, you have the pediatrician's and OB's making rounds, ordering all types of stuff, lots of discharging, and we do circs during the day. Night shift can be busy at times, because of course, babies don't sleep on a schedule like we do. My nights were spent doing more education, baby weights and assessments. I did enjoy the slower pace of night shift, I just couldn't stay awake, LOL. Either way mother/baby is a wonderful unit to work on!
