What you’re feeling is totally normally, you carried him inside you for 9 months and have cared for him for the last 4.5 months on your own so to hand him over to his dad for the weekend is a big deal. Respect to you for starting the contact so early to enable father and son to bond, it will get easier with time I promise.
Perfectly normal feeling. My mate came round last weekend to look after my 2 boys while i popped out to see a couple of friends at the pub. Got to say that i hated it and couldnt wait to get home ! I wont be doing that again . As a dad ive learnt to get the football indoors ( not the pub) and the beer indoors too.
Thank you @blossom for the hugs and message, much appreciated. Just feeling really rubbish at the moment and I hope it gets easier with time. I felt so exhausted and burnt out last night, I keep telling myself that I need time to myself to recover but the guilt of not having him with me does not go away. Xx
We all feel this way when we away from our kids. Its a natural feeling. Its a good thing. A protective thing. We cant help it. We are the parents. I know im not going out again. Or at least not without them coming along too. xx
