I know that I am doing what is best for my son, I am a single mother, so if I didn't work we wouldn't have money for food or living expenses. I've been working since he was three months old so he's used to it though. Your daughter will learn to deal with it, it's what is best for your family :)

My son has been in daycare since he was 8 weeks old. So he is used to it. But if I run to the store and he stays home with his Nana he flips sometimes. So I usually give in. But...I work full time and like the person above me...it's what's best for your family. It will take time to adjust. Good luck.

I'm assuming she stays with her daddy when you are gone.  That time with him is probably really good for her.  I used to be a nanny and some of the kids would cry when the parents left.  The best thing I found to do was find something they really like to do and distract them.  That way they didn't even notice their parents left.

My son is 2.5 and had never really had a problem with me going to work, it was actually me who had a hard time leaving him... UNTIL I recently gave birth to my second son and was home for 7 weeks on maternity leave. NOW he cries and carrys on when I leave and it just makes it ten times harder. It sucks horribly, but I reallly don't have a choice. Husbands job doesn't offer healthcare or any other benefit for that matter, so I have to work to provide for my kids... it is extremely hard though, and I, like you, can only hope it gets better!

My daughters 19 months and i went back to work about 10 months ago and im still learning to cope with it. I hate leaving her. I think about her all day im there. Im going to have 2 soon and i dont know how thats going to be knowing now that im going to have to work full-time because im no longer with their father. You just have to keep thinking to yourself that its whats best for the family and your kids.
