I love my little guy, 2 months old, but he cries when I do the dishes, go to the bathroom for awhile, generally just am not in the same room and holding him. I think it may be mostly due to I held him everywhere and we're trying to separate a little bit. I began this need for more time to myself and for us to have a more healthy boundary around two weeks ago. He cries when I set him in the bassinet, even if he was asleep and wakes up not being held. Unfortunately we've moved him to another room to cry it out when we can't hold him all the time at 3am (as an example, when not feeding time). I feel awful for that, sometimes just need to sleep without him crying to be held.
How have you helped your little ones get through separation anxieties? Are there ways to get him more comfortable with sleeping in the bassinet?
