Hi Ashleigh!Presently I am the assistant director at the Landstuhl Youth Center in Germany but previously was a teacher, lead teacher and supervisor. I had that experience as a lead teach in the infant room and after much research in attachment theory I came to the conclusion that continuity of care is essential. When the parent is unable to carry the child because they are at work, we as caregivers have to stand in the gap for them in the development of their children. So in order for me to do this I would seek assistance from volunteer moms, any one else, that would be willing to come in and help. Maybe someone on break that you would talk to ahead of time. I am an advocate for infant attachment and interaction is imperative in that critical moment of birth to 1 year. Make life easier for yourself and the infant. The book, Ghost in the nursery: Tracing the roots of violence by Kart-Morse & Wiley, shook me to the core. In my opinion, the most important caregiver is the infant caregiver. I commend you for reaching out for help. Please, please, love those infant!
