See if there is any flex in your travel. A late Monday flight or late Weds can make all the difference. Try to do FaceTime every day and have someone send you pics and updates during your day. The time away is harder for you than your baby at this age - just wait until your kiddos cry and tell you to stay! It is all worth it and your time at home will be that much more meaningful. Hang in there! Agreed on moms bowl.

You can do this. Agree with others on FaceTime and video with the family. They wanna hear your voice and see your face.

Additionally take this time since you must be away to settle in your project and put some structure in place to have a base for future discussions to wfh and spread out your travel weeks.

Hang in there!

Demand flexibility. I’ve gotten it as a new dad. Have just said I know travel is part of my job but I could leave over it, and am disinclined to sit in a conference room 4 days a week if we’re not meeting with client. It’s gotten me an unofficial reduction and control over when. The control part helps a ton mentally.
