I knew this moment would eventually come, It didn’t make it any easier. It was time to be away from my baby for more than 3 whole minutes! I was only heading to the hairdressers to get my hair sorted out (it was way overdue!) and my mum had offered to look after Kory for me as I didn’t know how long I was going to be.
I don’t know why I felt so anxious/upset about leaving Kory, I knew he would be well looked after by my mum?! I think it just felt unnatural for me to go anywhere without him, he’d been glued to me since being born!
Looking back, I think I did okay actually, I only had one meltdown and only text my mum like a million times to see how he was…
I’m sure every first time mum goes through the same thing when they must leave their baby for the first time, however brief, am I right?
