I work 4 long days a week. My 6 month old dd is in daycare 2 days and with my husband 2 days. She is fine during the day, but our evenings are becoming very stressful. As soon as I walk in the door, I say "hello" and give her a kiss. I tell her "mom has to go potty and then I will nurse you". As soon as I even start to walk in another direction, she starts to cry, which escalates to screaming. Now, my husband and I don't agree on what we should do about this. He wants her to see that everything is okay and doesn't want me to pick her up when she is crying because then she will become spoiled, or something like that. Last night was very stressful because of this. The crying didn't stop until I picked her up. After I hold her, talk to her, and nurse her, she is fine, even if I leave the room.
So, has anyone experienced this before? Is this too early for it to show up? Any suggestions are how to handle it?
Any help is appreciated!
