It is not a bad idea to have a changing pad, diapers and wipes by the bed.
I had 8 weeks of leave with each of mine and went back to 50 or more hours of work a week right away. So my memories of their infancy are a blur of pumping, working, trying not to fall asleep at work, pumping some more, crying, etc.
Wow, that must have been really hard! I was having enough trouble staying awake at work while I was pregnant—while I was teaching I was fine, but whenever I sat down at my desk to try to work I'd fall asleep! (Thank goodness the medical establishment has decided a cup of coffee a day is okay while you're pregnant.)

I think it's a wonder I managed to stay employed for Doran's first year!
It did make me look at other parents in a different way. I think previously I just didn't have an appreciation for how hard it is to work full time with a baby at home.
