Hi, these factors were important to me when making my decision-
- age of baby
- hours working / days per week
- who will be carer
No one can really give you the correct answer, it's very personal.
I'm returning to work 3 days per week when ds2 will be 1yr and ds2 will be 3.5yrs. My mum and MIL will share ds2 as personally I don't want him in daycare just yet (even though ds2 did go 1 day a week when he was 1yr as I had no option because my late dad became sick and my Mum became mu dad's Carer). Ds2 will be in kinder 1 day.
