DD was 6m for just a few hours a week. By 10m she was there two full days and by 2 you 3 full days.
DS was 10m 3 full days.
DSS will be 9m when he starts half days for 2weeks then he'll go three full days.
We use family day care and have had the same carer since DD was 10m ( now 5.5y).
The kids have all grown up knowing her so when it comes time for them to actually stay there its no big deal.
I wouldn't want them in a child care situation though. I love they are only 1 of 5 kids. Sometimes only 3 or 4 but it really depends on the carer and we have a great one. ( she just won family day carer of the year in our state...I knew she was the best!).
