I am due to go back to work next week and my dh and I decided 2 days a week would be ok for my ds to be in day care. I don't know if its hormones or because its nearly crunch time but I'm soooo upset and cried and couldn't sleep last night.
He has had 2 half days yesterday and Monday which he was fine with. But they didn't have to put him to bed.
I'm the only one who has put him down for his naps, and I give him a breastfeed and snuggle then put him to bed. My dh has tried but he has no patience so we decided he will just have to keep him up until he is really tired and then put him to bed when he looks after him while I'm at work. Dh does have plans to read a story, quiet time, bottle, snuggle etc before he has to keep him up if that doesn't work.
The day care girls are lovely and will do everything I have suggested. I just can't see him settling without a fight. And is it fair to put a 10 month old into day care? Most of the mums in my playgroup don't have their kids in day care.
I want to work a weekend shift a fortnight and my parents can look after him on Friday afternoons. But dh doesn't want me to work weekends because its "family time".
We have agreed if he is really upset after Monday and Tuesday I can pull him out.
I will be ok I'd my ds is ok. My poor little baby.
Has anyone had a similar experience? What did you do? How did your child go?
