I live in Canada but I am originally from South America, and for christmas my baby daughter and I went visiting. Once my time was coming up, I decided that I would leave my daughter with my parents for a month or so... She loves them, and she seems to be doing fine, they said that she seems a little down, but she is not crying, she is going to daycare to play with other kids part time, eating and sleeping good! Today is the first day she is without me, and I am without her.. I am heartbroken even though I know she couldnt be in better hands... Any of you have left your baby with someone else for some weeks while you traveled or for other reasons?? is she going to think I abandoned her? I made sure I said good bye to her and I explained that I was coming to see Daddy and the puppy and that we were goign to see eachother on the web cam, she kept on saying yes, cried a minute while I left and since then she hasnt seen me, This was yesterday Jan 19. Please give me some advise and words of wisdom... I love my daughter so much, so If one of you think that I am a heartless mom, dont reply as I am feeling very homesick for her right now!
Thank you so much
