Yesterday I had the worst case of separation anxiety ever. It's not because I don't trust my babysitter or my mum who's watching over my baby, but because I was worried he won't love me as much as when he would see me at all hours.I bring LO to work every day ever since he was a month old but because of certain circumstances I thought it was better to have him stay somewhere else other than where I work. He already favors DH more than me and I was in tears worrying that he'll forget about me when I'm not with him. I was a mess - crying in the car, crying at my office, crying in the toilet... So I searched for other mother's experiences in the net to get my mind off of it but even with all the positive comments I wasn't assured. I kissed LO as soon as I arrived home and even if his response was lackluster it made me a bit better. I tell myself, as long as he's happy, I shouldn't worry about it.
BUT BUT what made me ten times better was when my sister came to tease him (my sister is sort of LO's frenemy where she's one of the sources for cool stuff but also his tormentor). Last night she hugged me, sticking her tongue at him and he just screamed at her until his face went red coz when it comes to her and the stuff that he likes, he gets extra possessive. He even ignored his dad and ran at us trying to push her away from me. And how could I have forgotten that he prefers to cuddle with me to sleep like what he did last night? Silly me.
Thankgoodness all that stress was resolved in one day haha. I don't think I can handle being so emotional like that for days - one day was enough for me
Anyone else had similar experience?

I am so glad that you recognized that your LO loves you, and that it will help you to remember that the next time. Also, it is wonderful that your LO is loved by so many.

I had some really hard times when I was working leaving my baby. I fully understand.
