At the risk of sounding like a "old know it all" I will say that you are reading more into the baby's crying then it warrants and even if she/he (sorry) is somehow making the connection it is a normal experience and one that teaches him you go and come back. Chances are it is just a reaction to a change in your routine and the baby will adjust. The last thing you want to do is stop doing things because it makes the baby cry. Most instances of separation anxiety begin at age 6 monthes and peak around 9 months. I completely understand how upsetting baby's crying will make you feel, and I would encourage you to make a swift departure and then call the home about fifteen minutes later and see if baby has settled down. Chances are all is well. In the event the baby is still upset, consider enlisting your husband to watch the baby when he gets home from work, or better yet, if you work outside the home extend your time outside of the house so that you don't come home and leave agan. If all this fails, then remember children change fast and this week's problem will be gone and replaced with a new one next week.
