My friend's husband is in merchant navy and their baby is 3-year-old. The baby has started missing the father now whenever he is on sail. What can be done to relax him and make him feel that father is around?

Video calls, everyday clips of daddy at work to remind baby that daddy is out there for a purpose.. he's not absent for fun. But good luck... very tough to hear these things.
Wishing you all the best
Maybe have videos of the Dad recorded so kid can watch it and feel closer to dad. Or dad can record some audios of him singing nursery tunes or reading a story for the kid to go to bed listening to
Hey, I have a few friends whose husbands are also in merchant navy and they faced the same issues with their babies too. One of the things they do a lot though is to get on regular video calls. Mos
