Hi everyone.... I am a single mum (25) to a nearly 6 month old boy, it's just been me and him (apart from the odd day out with mummy and baby friends) for the last 5 months but I'm going back to work in 2 weeks and the guilt has been starting to creep in!!! I'm returning to work 3 full days a week, and he will be with my mum, who is more than capable and he loves her so no issues there was just wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get through the guilt/separation feelings at the beginning?? Thank you!!! smile

I have no tips but I'm going to be in the exact situation soon, my DD will be around 9 months though sadit's a horrible feeling isn't it, even though they'll obviously be totally fine and it's us mum's that will be finding it harder!

Yep!! I know he will be fine he won't care!!! 😂😂 I work in a nursery so am used to being on the other side of it watching parents leave their kids and telling them everything will be ok!!! X
