So my husband and I work different shifts so we can both be there for our daughter deedee and won't have to rely on daycare to take care of her and raise her. With that being said, as of lately my job has slowed down a bit, offering two vacation days a week as a cut back (they pay you 80% of your pay) so I've been home ALOT more than normal.
Ever since I started the days off my daughter will not leave my sight, when I walk into the bathroom she cries, when I don't pick her up quick enough she cries, when I do go to work my husband has to put cartoons on to distract her while I leave or she cries for like an hour. When we are in public all she wants is to be with me, and if she is near me she is content, like right now she is playing next to me with her color book.
The doctor told me it is seperation anxiety and that it will go away in about a month or so, but it's been about a month or so and so now I'm a little worried. Has anyone gone through this? Can someone tell me what I should do? My husband wants me to ignore her when she cries like that but I don't think that is the answer.
