My little girl is 4 months old now and we're pretty much practising attachment parenting. I have to return to work full time in January when she'll be 9 months old. On mondays and tuesdays she'l be with her dad from 8am to 4.30pm and on wednesdays thursdays and fridays she'l will go to a child minder 8am while 2pm and my mum will have her 2pm-4.30pm.
I'm really worried about how things will be, I've never been apart from her but i know i need to start soon so she gets used to it. Also i worry as i breastfeed her to sleep for her naps and i know that drinking EBM from a bottle or cup wont have the same comforting affect on her.
I can't bare to think of my little girl being upset wihout me there to comfort her but financially i have to return to work!
