I am a SAHM, however I do work for 2 hours one eve a week. It is something I enjoy and have been doing for years. i have been on maternity leave for the last 3 1/2 months and went back two weeks ago. I was terrified ds would cry when I left him alone with my DH because he really doesn't like to be held by other people and just wants to be in my arms all day (which he is) But it came down to either I quit the job or I go back. I really couldn't put it off any longer. Well, it went OK the first time. DS just slept in DH's arms the whole time. But last night when I went, ds cried for an hour!! I feel horrible. DH called me and said "I can't get the baby to stop crying" but there was nothing I could do, I was a half hour away at that point. Anyways, I arrived home 30 minutes later and ds was asleep. I woke him up and cuddled with him and held him and slept with him in my arms all night. I don't know what to do. I don't want my baby to cry when I am gone. I don't do this job for the money, obviousely since it is just one eve a week, it is just to get a little sign language practice (I used to be an interpreter). I didn't have this issue with ds#1 because he always loved daddy. Should I quit??? I don't want to cause any emotional stress to my little baby.
