In brief: Won't come back

Separation anxiety is a term we use for babies starting ~6-9 mo when the realize that mom or dad is their primary source of comfort & care.
At that age, when separated, they don't understand that mom or dad don't vanish forever when the go out of sight. By 2y most babies understand & anxiety drops.I'd call your issue" morning the loss of companionship".
