Back-to-Work Baby Anxiety

Moms, who used to work before their delivery, often find it a challenge to get back to their work, leaving their little child at home. Both mothers and babies often suffer from separation anxiety at this stage. Babies become overly attached to their mother and cling to them all the time, when they are at home, afraid to let them go. This make many moms feel guilty. Actually, babies start associating with the patterns and their daily routines as soon as they are born. Till the time, moms are at home; babies are held by ‘mommy’ almost all the time and get nursed or comforted, whenever they cry. Once mothers join their offices or go back to work, the daily routine of course gets altered, baffling the baby.
