Here's my take on the situation: why put the little guy through that when your work is still three months away? Babies grow and change so much in such a short time. Maybe when he's a bit older, it will be easier for him. Your baby is so young, and I fear that by forcing this separation from you for such long periods of time, you are doing damage that isn't going to help you in the long run. If I found out my baby cried for three hours while I was away I'd be so upset!!
Your son needs you right now. He doesn't understand you are going to work in three months. If it were me, I'd pretend I wasn't even working and just be there for him as much as I could until it's much closer to when you have to work. I don't think you're making it easier on him by making him go through this now as opposed to when he's a bit older.
