Join Jeff and I as we discuss:
How leaving baby at daycare, with parents, or sometimes even with Dad can be tough.
How the first step is to admit it, not pretend the fear doesn't exist.
A 4-point strategy for lowering anxiety.
Jeff and I tackle a questions that is often tough for men to relate with: the fears, anxieties, and worry of leaving baby with someone else. Often, many moms work outside the home and as such need to leave baby with someone throughout the day. While this is absolutely necessary in these cases, it often creates a flood of emotions for moms.
Feelings like "no one can raise my baby like me" and "what if something happens to them." Some moms Jeff and I have worked with in the past really fear that their kiddos are going to attach to their day-time caregiver more than them.
Are these fears crazy. Absolutely not! But are there steps that we can perform that will help us handle this fear of separation of leaving baby? Most certainly!
