hi..i'm actually a working mom every since she's 3mons old. i pursue to work immediately after giving birth because my partner was also unemployed and we're living together with his parents.

i feel jealous whenever my daughter chooses to sleep with her granny (my mother-in-law) than to sleep with me.i have only one rest day to play and have fun with my daughter. and since my workplace is 2hours from our house i got home sometimes at 10pm. i'm afraid that time will come that my daughter would rather to be with her grandmother than to be with i need to feel this way???

Its natural as a mother to feel that way because you also need attention from you baby. You should not be jealous but instead try to make the best out of the few hours you have with her. She might feel more close to your mother in law as she spends time with her but what i have learnt is its not just about more time but quality time. Try to play hard with her even though you will be tired from work, she will remember that when mummy comes its time to play. Dont force it down on her but rather give her time and dont loose hope. IT WORKS

remember short term memory. babies dont develop memories until they are 3 or 4 year old. just be there when she is starting to have memories.
