Tough situation.   Good money but your baby is a newborn for only a short time.

Weigh out all of your options before you decide such as would you have to relocate for the job and what type of adjustments would need to be made if you do take the job. Sounds like good money but it also may end up being more stressful than good with a newborn baby.

Bear in mind that there will be many psychological and emotional stresses involved and there is no money in the world that can erase those experiences.

Money can come and go and there are many other ways you can make money.

Wait what??? Corrections? Like at a jail? hmmm that changes things. That overtime for corrections is MORE than they advertise by the way. We had a friend that went into corrections. You can call shots with seniority. She makes very very good money working at rikers but her daughter was 8 at the time so the daughter stayed with one of those old abuela type of sitter in NY. Your baby is fresh and still has milk breath. I thought it would be something like a desk job or special investigations or something.

I would only do it if my mom could help with the baby, but that's just me. Bonding with a newborn child is a priceless experience.

Well, I am familiar with how corrections work. My job is very similar to corrections but the overtime is not as severe and I have seniority there...however, if I request the 12x8 tour and I do not get it, it will be very difficult for me being that I don't have anyone to watch her...I w pull have no other choice than to get a baby sitter or put her in nursery with the salary me and fiance have now. With corrections, we are talking a major increase in pay but the overtime and scheduling is crazy. ...This is the hardest decision ever...and yes, I'll be working at rikers...
