My DH travels a lot for his work, can anyone recommend a good book to help explain things to my 18mo?

She is fine while he is away but gets hysterical when she sees his suitcase and is very clingy when he gets back. I remember seeing a book, written by a soldier I think, on This Morning while I was on mat leave but can't remember what it was called.

Have a look at this website My Daddy's Going Away. There's a book of the same name, a page of fun ideas and tips, and a page of Useful Links (including Munsnet!)

I got a book called 'When Mommy Travels' which ds has liked - very simple, but says what you do when away.

I don't make a fuss about it, just tell him the day before I go, send some emails when away, and he gets a little present if I'm away for more than a couple of nights
