    I'd go the 4 shorter days cos you can use their afternoon naps to catch up on housework etc.

    I work 3 short days and 1 long day. My bub is in long daycare 2 days and with family the other two days. I use one of my short days (her long day) to do some serious housework/appt that cant be done with a kid in tow.

    I'd rather the extra full day with my kids.
    Yes it's long day care so I pay for the full days, but should get some gov assistance as I'm a single mum. I have no family help either.

    Im starting to think I need to go back full-time for a bit as I really need the money badly.
