My Husband is active duty and is currently tdy in tx for 4 months before he comes homes for a month then leaves for another year. We have a 20 month old son and i am having problems. We are staying with family in tx so my son and I go see my husband every couple of weeks, so that we have more time with him before he leaves. But we just got back from our first visit and he wakes up screaming and it takes me about 45 mins to calm him down. Does anyone have any advice?Answer Question

Get him a Daddy Doll. It can help with separation by giving your little one something physical to represent the bond with his father. My husband is in the Navy and many of the children from his command have these.
It's not easy being a military family. But you will be ok, and you are very lucky to be staying with family and being able to go visit your husband.
