My son is 5 months old and I'm going to the office of the job I'm starting as a kind of "test run" next week. I won't be starting officially until Feb. I'll be gone for 8 hours and DS will be with the same babysitter he's had for a few hours every week, who is excellent and who my son absolutely adores. DS breastfeeds but takes the very occasional bottle of expressed milk.
So I'm really nervous. The longest I've ever left him is 3 hours, and that has not been traumatic for either of us, but a whole day I would really like to hear some stories from you moms who have BTDT, I just am not sure what to expect.
