Hi, I've been back at work part time for 2 months now since my little man was 5 and a half months. He was the same at first and seemed really wary, He also cried when other babies were upset.
I stayed with him for a couple of sessions for an hour at a time to re-assure him it was ok, then i left him for an hour on 2 separate days and we've never looked back. I really struggled in the first few weeks and hated the nursery nurses because they got to spend the day with him and I felt really guilty! We have now both settled and are happy with him being there. He loves it and is always full of smiles, after having done activites that i wouldn't have the time or facilities to do at home.
Yesterday I picked him up and he'd done his first painting and played in the sand pit. Hang in there it's brilliant for their development and you get a few hours to be just you again x
