Early start: Moms always have the insecurity about who will take care of the baby. Hence, it is always better to plan for caregivers before time. Also, because daycare centers may put you on the waitlist.
Regular updates: Leaving your baby behind at a daycare center is the hardest part of a woman's career. Request your daycare center to update you with pictures of your baby throughout the day.

Bottle feed babies: Breastfeeding moms must plan for bottle feeding for babies. Feed the baby regularly with a bottle until the baby agrees is vital.
Plan in advance: Your preparation time is at night. Plan your clothing, baby bag, etc. Organize things so that the next day is easier.
Slow start: Part-time work for the first two weeks is good. This helps babies adapt and adjust to your schedule.

Evenings only for baby: During the transition period, mom's quality time with the baby is essential. Hence, schedule your evening time only for your baby.
