It may never get easier but you do what you have to for financially supporting your family.   A support group would be hard since everyone is working.

:( Is it possible to stop by his daycare during your lunch break to be with him? I know some moms do this to nurse as well.

((hugs))  Some day cares have a cam that lets parents look in at their baby, or if you have a sitter, perhaps you can ask for a cam or skype even and check in from time to time.

It will always be hard, but eventually it gets a bit easier.  Also, what helped for me was being able to change my work schedule so I spent more time with my son in the evening.  I went from working 9-5 to 8-4 (which I don't mind b/c I am a morning person).  My husband takes him to daycare in the morning and I pick him up in the evening.  I love having that extra time in the evening.

I also made a binder with a spreadsheet so that the DCP cousl fill out when he ate, slept, had a diaper change, etc.  It made me feel more involved in his day.  Good luck! *HUGS*

It is hard but think of the things you are providing for your family. My husband is a disabled vet and i'm the bread winner in the family.  Our DD has been in a WONDERFUL daycare since she was 7 months old and is eager to go every morning. This morning (she's just turned 3), she was complaining that I wasn't driving fast enough.  LOL  As long as you feel like the daycare is the best it can be, and that they love your little one as much as you do (our teachers are part of our family and even babysit occasionally for us), you will eventually begin to feel better about leaving you little one.  It does take time, though.  It won't change over night.  Please feel free to PM me if you need to chat. I'm on my computer all day (exec admin) so I can usually hop on CM pretty quickly!  :)
