Diagnosis first!: Concentration difficulties can be caused by many psychological and/or medical reasons. Improving concentration requires a thorough neurological or neuropsychological diagnosis. Different causes indicate different interventions.

When should I start pumping and storing milk in preparation for going back to work?

Depends: If you are going back to work at 6 or 8 weeks, you need to store up some milk early. Start pumping and storing by a month. If you have a longer time before you go back, you can wait to store until a month or two before going back. But you will likely be pumping before that in order to give the baby breastmilk in a bottle, an important skill for baby to develop prior to your return to work!

Start slow: If you can try to start back in the middle of the week so that you have a short first week. If your work allows try to work shorter days at first so you are not away from your baby as long. Make sure you are comfortable with your daycare situation and bring a picture of your baby to work with you so you can always take a quick peek at their cute face!

Is it normal to feel nervous about going back to work?

Yes: Going back to work and leaving your little one in daycare or with a nanny is hard. Make sure you are comfortable with your daycare situation and bring a small picture of your baby to set on your desk. Its also normal to feel not quite prepared to work again, your days have been spent cooing and changing diapers, not working! take it slow and you will find a good balance between work and family.

Abusing medication to improve my concentration for exams. Will that get back to me?

I think you know: I think you know the answer to that question already! do things to make your mind stronger, not things that will damage it in the long run, not to mention the damage the medication will do to you liver and/or other parts of your body. To do well on exams eat healthy, don't skip meals, get enough sleep, and study the material. Good luck!
