  • Just take him around as many of your family members as possible and let them hold him. Who will he be staying with? Take him to them if possible if you are worried aobut it. Usually if they are young enough they adjust and really don't know that much of a difference. Good luck. I know it must be hard going back to work.

  • He is most likely going to be with his cousins or at the very least he'll be at his cousins house with there baby sitter.

  • I agree with PPabout taking your baby to visit whoever will be taking care of him. If you will be using a daycare, I would see if they might let you visit for an hour to see how he will react to the other babies and teachers. You might also try doing a trial run of getting things ready inthe morning to see how long it will take you to get out the door. Good luck.
