CNN PRODUCER NOTE iReporter JenCompton can sympathize with the work/parenting balance so many mothers face. She, too, found it an adjustment to be back at work after caring for her three month old son, Jack. "I came back to work and it was hard, because before I got to spend all day with my son and now it's only two or three hours in the evening," she said. "It's hard to balance everything and, unless you've been through it, how will you understand what it's like? In some areas many mothers stay home after they have babies but ... I like to work as I went to college and it makes me feel more fulfilled as a person." So, what would help? She says flexible working hours - and cameras in nurseries to check on your children - would be great.
