In brief: Return to womb
Babies are often comforted by the rocking and movement they experienced in the womb & will want to be held all the time if you let them.That said, you delivered baby & its time it got use to existing separate from your body.
Get ear plugs if you need and place baby in a crib or basinet when you work. Check on baby as often as you need, but be supportive from a distance. Babies can adapt if u let.
