My daughter is five months old, I still haven’t left her! I have anxiety about leaving her and won't leave her with anyone, but this means I never have time alone. What can I do?

Do you have somewhere you could go with her and someone else? A partner, family member or friend? It could be a trip to the shops or park. Then you could try to go for a little wander on your own, leaving the baby with the trusted person even for just 20 mins and then you can be together again.

It always feels strange and your worries are normal - it definitely gets easier. My little one didn’t go for a full evening of baby sitting until she was eight months. But small times away helps you both get used to times apart. Hope it helps!
