Hi all, I had a phone call from my boss (I'm on maternity leave) to start back on Monday with no warning and no transition into full time. My dd is only 10 months old and has never been in any sort of day care or even away from me for more than a couple of hours. I only have today and tomorrow to do a few play dates with her at the centre before bam! 5 days. My partner is going to finish early for a few weeks and pick her up between 12 and 2pm and I will drop her off at 8am so atleast for a few weeks she won't be stuck there all day.
I just feel so guilty and physically sick at the whole idea. It's just been her and I everyday for 10months. I feel like she will feel abandoned. I'm so upset.
Has anyone had any experiences similar? How do I do this? I don't think I can cope I just don't know what to do or how to feel
My dd is very social and happy hardly ever cries and is very easy going I know she will enjoy the stimulation and seeing the other kids but my heart breaks that it will be 5 days
