    Question.

    Advertisements
    When the daddy of a 6 month old leaves will he/she remember him when he comes back after being gone on deployment?

    This has me worried when my DF leaves

    It depends what age the child is. What age are you talking about?

    I think it depends. My friend's husband just came home on R&R and he had left when his DD was about 7 months old. She recognized him right away. My friend said they skipped a lot and she thought that helped.

    I've heard of some kids remembering and some kids not.

    Our baby will be a newborn when DH leaves and will be 5/6 months when he gets back. Even though he will still be so young, I plan on showing pictures and videos and skyping with the baby. You could have a little photo album of pictures of your DF to show your baby every day or something.

    Here's a good thing to Put pictures in for baby! Rylee got on as a shower gift and Dylan took it over cause he loves looking at the pictures I put in it. It's baby/toddler proof of taking the pictures out.

    DD was older when DH left, but my friend's baby was only 2months and she got her little girl a daddy pillow and showed her pictures and skyped. She is 8MO now and her dad just got home and she is doing fine, not scared or anything.
    I am a strong believer that you kids will "remember" as long as you work with them to tell them who daddy is. There are a TON of resources for parents and kids. If you look in the sticky thread about kids and deployment I have linked a few there. Take advantage of the things that are out there.
    There will always be an adjustment period when someone leaves for a long period of time and then comes back, but what you do while they are gone will determine how difficult that is.
    Each child is different, but tell you baby who daddy is, talk about daddy, have pictures and things that just belong to the baby that baby can hold (strongly suggest a daddy doll or daddy pillow).

    My baby will either be a fresh newborn when hubby leaves - or be born just after he leaves. With 5 siblings running around I'm sure there will be talk of Daddy & we plan to have tons of photos of daddy around the house.
