My husband just PCAed to a new squadron that does shift work. He is incredibly excited about this new schedule, but it is definitely taking a toll on me and our son. Our son is 14 months, and just in the past two days gets these sudden crying spells for no reason. He has also become very clingy and he is not usually like that. He is quite independent. His separation anxiety from his father has gotten worse, or at times he just sits and cries if he is with his Dad. My husband keeps telling me that this schedule is awesome because he has half of the month off...but he will be sleeping most of that time! Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get into a good routine and help my son with this anxiety he is having?
