Will my daughter and I lose our bond?

I am a single mom. My 8 month old has never been apart from me since she was born. I have issues with mental health, and I may need to be hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation. If my daughter is separated from me for a few days, will we lose our bond??

  • No - i just spent a week in the hospital and only got to see my 4mo twins twice for just a few minutes each, and i think they are even closer to me now that i'm back - they dont want me to leave again, lol. You need to get the help you need, your daughter will be better off with a happier you =)
