I go back to work (very full time) on Thursday after 12 weeks FMLA with my DD. I'm a first time momma. We had a really rough start with colic, tummy troubles and long crying jags on a nightly basis but for the last 3-4 weeks there's been a huge turnaround and our girl is happy and an absolute delight. I feel so sad about leaving her, I keep crying and I still have two full days left.
Any advice on how to ease the transition for both of us? I never expected to become so attached to my LO -- crazy, I know, but she has changed me forever.
Also, thanks to LLLI and all of you wise mothers. I love reading the forums and getting my questions answered!
