Full time working mummies, help please!

Hi all

I am due to start back to work full time in three weeks and I am getting myself very worked up about it. I worry about being away from my little boy for such long days (9-5) and I worry that the close bond we share will be lessened. I am so afraid that he will start becoming attached to others over me. Can anyone share any experiences which may help?

Thanks in advance

Hi Natalie , i was a stay at home mom until my daughter was 6months (she's 8months now). I work only 5 hours a day 5 days a week while my baby's in daycare or home with dad somedays but I can honestly say that at first I was very much like you. I felt bad for living my baby and thought our bond would fade. But after about a week or two, once my daughter got used to the scheduling of daycare, and home time things got better. You get to feel like your old self again in a way but stronger because you are handing both task of being a working woman and meeting your career goals while getting to enjoy motherhood. Sometime I get sad and miss my daughter but I quickly remember that he is safe, and learning, trust me your bond will not fade, and everytime you two see other another it will be nothing but smile and hugs and that's the part I love most because your baby will always be happen to see you ;)
