I have a 5 month old daughter. I work at home and have a live-in nanny. It is a pretty good arrangement, really. I see my baby throughout the day. But I'm still apart from her 6-8 hours a day. When she was first born, I felt such a strong bond to her. I cried when I had to leave her to work - even though it was in the next room! Now I don't cry anymore. I'm afraid my bond is diminishing. I sleep with her and breastfeed and play with her as much as possible. But I'm sad that the first strong bond I felt is not as strong anymore. I would love to hear how you work and stay bonded to your babies. Or if you feel the same way, too. I'd love to hear how you are coping.
