My son Patrick is 16 mos old. I am a SAHM My husband works full time and is gone most of the day - although usually makes it home for dinner somewhere between 6:30 and 7:30 and give's Patrick a bath and reads him stories before bed. Weekends he's around a bit more but still usually sleeps in and is gone a good chunk of the day. Patrick gets very upset when dh leaves the room - unless he's ready to nurse. Patrick has never had any separation issues with me, but his issues with DH seem to be getting a bit more erratic. He was so excited to hear daddy pull up today when he got home then ds just burst into tears when dh walked in the door. Then during dinner he was standing in his high chair and DH picked him up to help him turn around (he wasn't able to turn around on his own) and again burst into tears. Even while holding him he would still scream until we asked him if he wanted daddy to read him a book. Anyone else have daddy separation issues? How do help them build a more secure bond?
