Back at work and losing connection with my son

Hi, not sure if anyone feels like this but I have been at work for 2 weeks now, after 9 month mat leave, and I feel like I am losing connection with my son. DH is taking care of him and never misses a moment to tell me how to do things better. I'm not sure if it's all the insecurity and anxiety wrapped up in going back to work but I feel like my DH is replacing me in my little boy's life? It's making me shut off and shut down.

Lots of women start cosleeping after they return to work. You could consider this. It may help you feel closer to your son.

Hmm, that's interesting. I'm 'fraid he's not sleeping through the night by a long shot so I still see quite a lot of him at nighttime
