I have a 7 month old I have decided I want to go back to work. I get bored sitting at home and start to go crazy and get frustrated easily after a few days of it, so I think I need to just for the sake of my sanity. Generally, if I do go somewhere, I take her with me. The problem, is that since I have never really left her with anyone besides the odd time I get a chance to go out, I have trust issues when it comes to who looks after my daughter. I’m always thinking about the things that could go wrong or what if something happens. I’m debating on whether or not I can actually do it or not. I live with my parents and I trust the 100% with her because they know her routine and her different cries and stuff almost as much as I do but they will not always be able to look after her and I know they will follow my instructions. I’m afraid to leave her with anyone but them. Even her father. We’re still together but he works a lot and is not always around. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or ways of dealing with the separation anxiety.
