Separation anxiety?

Just wondering if anyone has any advice. I've just returned to work after having Dc2. She was 7.5 months when I returned to work at the start of May, nearly 9 months now, I work 2 days a week and she goes to nursery 2 mornings and then is either with DH or DGP in the afternoons. She's always been quite laid back but since I've gone back to work she seems to have found a pair of fussy pants!

I don't know if it's just coincided with a developmental spurt or she is struggling with separation anxiety. She is breastfed and has recently been feeding more when I'm not at work. She is also more unsettled in the night on days I'm at work, she doesn't want feeding just comfort. And more difficult to settle for a nap in the daytime. Again I don't know if it's coincidence!

Is there anything we can do to help her feel more settled and secure when I am at work?
