My little guy will be 6 months on October 1st. I have had the priviledge of being home with him since he was born, however, I will be going back to work full time very soon. I have left him for short periods of time with the child care provider that will keep him once I go back, and he just cries and cries for her. It really breaks my heart that I have to leave him, but I have no choice. Last night I left him with DH while I had a meeting, and he cried so much for him that he nearly lost his voice. I absolutely hate to hear that he's that unhappy when I'm not around.
How can I get him used to me being gone? Is there a gentle way to do it so he doesn't get so upset? I'm thinking of calling the babysitter today and asking her if we could start doing short periods of time at her house and then gently increase the time there. I don't know what else to do. DH just says that he'll have to learn. :(
