    Thanks ladies

    I may let them know about some of the anxiety I am having, but I also don’t want to say too much as I don’t want to put them on edge for the day.

    My anxiety is mainly around the safety aspect of outings, always holding hands near cars, DD getting lost etc.

    I think I just need to suck it up, i don’t want to be asking for continuous updates from them as I don’t want my anxiety to put them off having a great time with my DD.

    With your own time apart, do something that you think might generate positive feelings. That way you start training your brain to associate something other than fear with an otherwise scary experience, being away from your child.
    That’s a great idea re the positive feelings, thank you.

    i’d suggest keeping myself busy. do something you’ve really wanted to do on your own for ages. i’m sure your dd will have a wonderful day and you’ll enjoy the time on your own too. i’m very envious!

    i too suffer from these feelings of not feeling comfortable with others watching my kids (daycare and kinder are the exception), it really is so hard to let go. good on you for taking the first step xx
    Thank you. She is nearly 3 1/2
    I will probably do some cooking or cleaning riveting stuff
