  • Your baby is going to need extra holding. You might try using a sling or carrier.

  • She's probably adjusting to you being gone. Anytime I've been gone for awhile, my son gets very clingy. She just misses you! Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do but give her lots of love and attention when you're together. Do you have a carrier you can wear her in? That might help her get the closeness she wants while keeping your arms free to do what needs to get done.
