My DS will start daycare in april and the closer it gets to the time the more nervous i get. He'll only be 9.5 months & im dreading that he's going to cry without me he doesn't like going to other people unless he's in the good mood. The worst thing is that i'll have to go back to work 5 days/week i wouldn't be so bothered if he'd go 2-3 days a week but 5 seems like an overkill. In trying to get one day/week working from home so he'll go 4 days/week but my employer was never flexible before so i dont have much hope. I'd quit but we're trying to buy a house this year so thats not an option. Feeling a bit stuck and very sorry for my baby i dont have to go back to work till he's 11.5 months but we have to start daycare earlier cos they wont hold the spot for us... I keep reading all this terrible stuff about kids crying at daycare & full time daycare not being good for them (ie 5 days a week)... We dont have any relatives here so daycare is the only option really... I just wish my job would let me work 3 days week
So if anyone has any advice how to ease my mind please share i know all kids go to daycare but i feel that 9.5mnths is way too early & 5 days/week is way too much!
