Congratulations on going back to school! its not easy for student moms and I felt enormously guilty at first, I really think that if you trust his caregiver when you are not around to love and care for him then that eases up the worrying a bit, I had an arrangement with my caregiver to pop in or call during the day as his day care was near to school and that helped a lot to see that he was fine and happy, if these options are open to you make use of them, this will help you to feel better at school and not have your mind split into worrying about him and when is going on in class. Hope this helps.

I know how you feel. Im getting back into the whole school thing but Im doing it online so I dont have to be away. This was not my first choice. I did want to do the campus thing, but I don't have the support of my outside family. I have to move forward with my education somehow. I wish you the best. It will be ok. I myself am a mother of two, a boy and girl, ages 2 1/2 and 1. Is it possible for you to do the online thing where you are attending so that you don't have to be away?

They will decrease the longer you are in school. I gave birth to my daughter a couple of weeks into last semester and returned to school 1 week later. I had so much anxiety about being away from her that I cried on the way there. Within weeks my anxiety lessened (but did not totally go away). I think you'll be fine. You might even enjoy a little time away.
