It doesn’t help that when I got there she was crying when he held her and he was like why are you crying I’m your father and I was like don’t talk to her like that, it’s not her fault she doesn’t recognize you and then he was like is it my fault? I wanted to take her back he refused to give her back I’m not okay, this is much harder than I thought I don’t even know what my daughter is doing or how she is feeling I’m such a horrible mom
Drop off was hard! My ex is terrible I begged him to let me take her in and leave when she settles he refused. He has refused to share her pictures or videos with me. I saw that his mum had posted my baby’s video on her WhatsApp I feel so terrible like I made a huge mistake. I can’t wait for the day to be over, I keep walking around my house feeling miserable 😩
As long as the dad is A good trustworthy person, and you trust him to take care of your baby, then absolutely let your baby go for the weekend. I know how bad that separation anxiety can be. At this point my daughter is 10 and she now has separation anxiety from me as well. It’s a tough cycle to break but should break it early. Also you need to have time to yourself to rest it is extremely important and you will be a better mom for it. Like I said as long as you trust who your baby is going with, then let them go. It will be hard at first but you’ll be glad that you did. Good luck!
You need sleep and rest, video chat if you miss her. Let her bond with her dad, being sleep deprived don’t help anyone.
I separated from my spouse for about a month a year ago and he was off weekends and I worked so I would drop the kids off to him on Friday evenings. It tore my heart out having to say "I'll see you in a couple days" and trying to be cheerful but even if they cried while saying by and asking for extra kisses.. by bedtime when I'd call them, they were settled in and had had some fun and were just fine. Your babe should be just fine as well. She's soo young, as long as her father is responsive in changing her, feeding her and playing peekaboo, she'll be totally fine.
She’ll probably be a lot better than you will be tbh! I know it doesn’t bring you comfort in this moment, but remember that when she’s not with you
Find something to focus on. TV show you really wanted to watch a movie a book maybe a friend you haven't had time to hang out with. If none of that appeals to you maybe there's some cleaning that you just haven't had time to get around to. You just got to find something to focus your mind on so that the time passes instead of sitting there missing her. Just remember you'll be okay she'll be okay. You'll see her again soon.
