I have now been back at work for three weeks. Im working two days a week and when im there ds is at home with my mum.
I know he is well looked after and he adores her but it feels horrible leaving him.
I keep waiting for it to get better but its getting worse. I just want to cry i miss him so much. I was lookimg forward to going back to work but now its happened I am hating it.
Hoping im not alone in feeling like this.
Any suggestions on how I can make it easier would be greatly appreciated.

Does it get easier?

It does get easier!
The first time I dropped ds off at daycare I sat in the car outside and cried! But it does gradually does get a hit easier as you settle into a routine.
My number one tip is to be organized! It's so much easier when you have everything for the next day organized. Having a pretty set routine helps as well.
I just keep thinking that I'm working for my family so we can not just scrape by and we can afford to do fun activities on weekends

You'll always miss them but it does make the time with them more special imo.

It certainly does get better.
DS has been in FDC since January 2011 and I still think about him a bazillion times a day but dropping off is much better. I have to do what I have to do.
At the start i'd get teary for a good month or so every drop off but now that only happens if he's going through a clingy stage.
I still sometimes msg my FDC mum to see how he's going throughout the day.

Yes. All I can say is it does get easier.
My DS was 9 months when he started daycare which, for me, was much harder than leaving him with a grandparent (we don't have family in Aus). And it is still hard and I miss him of course, but it does get easier. And I enjoy working, which helps a lot.

Thanks for the understanding. I have always been very career focused so wasn't prepared for not enjoying going back. Plus them ringing me a million times every day last week didn't help.
I know I am very lucky to have my mum wh can look after him. And she comes to our place so he gets to stay in his routine which is great for him.
Will have to just suck it up I guess.
