When a mother has postpartum depression, why would her husband/physician confine her to a room that was beforehand being used as a place devoted to children?

Since the protagonist is currently disadvantaged with postpartum depression, being reminded of her child all the time is not helping her mental stability whatsoever.

He believes that when the child is between the ages of 6-24 months the child has a clear cut attachment. Which I feel shows that the child is clearly attached to their parent and they do not want to be without them. This leads the child to have separation anxiety while away from their parent or caregiver. Separation anxiety depends on “infant temperament, context and adult behavior.” (text page 197) In most cases when a toddler is experiencing this type of anxiety he or she gets upset because their trusted caregiver is leaving them. Like the young toddler as previously mentioned being left at the daycare, she begs and cries for her mother as she drops her off.
