Infant care transition
Can mummies who send their baby to infant care share on how you cope the transition? I am having separation anxiety each time i send my baby to infant care. I am starting work next week and I’ve been crying the whole day when my baby is in infant care.
I’m sending my 4mths babygirl next week and am already having the anxiety, not to mention the tons of worry too! Lots of questions in my head - will she drink her milk, will she sleep, will she be crying murder everytime, etc. I get emotional just counting down the days that I’ll be sending her to infant care. My husband said I’m overreacting.. I’m only returning to work in Dec so I have a month to get used to the transition. No doubt, I think most working mummies who send their baby to infant care have that mum guilt but we have no choice but to continue working to help with the finances. I have mummy friends telling me that baby will eventually adapt in infant care and we don’t have to worry so much. I think it’s only normal we feel emotional being separated from our baby even if it’s for a few hours. Things will get better over time. We’ll get through this! :)Read more
Thank you! Let’s get through this! The first 3 days was the toughest! My baby barely took naps :(
