New moms 🗣 go back to work or sahm?

Alexis • Millennial mommy 👩‍👧

If you had the choice, would you go back to work or be a stay at home mom?

My leave has been exhausted so I have two weeks to decide whether I go back to work or be a stay at home mom. I basically don't need to go back to work. We're financially secure for now.

The upside of going back to work is the extra money and "time away" from being a mom, I guess. I have been loving just staying at home with my daughter while on leave. But sometimes it gets boring when your daily routine is feeding, cleaning, playing, repeat. Howeverrrr I don't want to miss milestones of my daughter if I do go back to work and of course just missing the hell outta my daughter.

I need some input from mommies who have had similar experiences or advice in general. Please and thank you! 😩
