    I've preferred having my ds in 2 days than 1. He loves it, probably just his personality mostly though. We have Tues & Thurs - the gap is useful as he gets so stimulated and exhausted at cc.

    My dd started with one day and she didn't settle in well. Once I changed to two there was a huge improvement.

    Could you maybe do two days childcare and have your mum and mil do a day a fortnight so you don't have a day with him away while you're home?

    Hey OP. I think it's very hard for a bub to get in any sort of routine and feel secure on just one day a week. Increases the anxiety and settle in time which is not fair on bub or the carers. Maybe you could reduce the days the family are looking after bub and increase daycare to minimum 2 days?

    Maybe I'm looking at things from the view on my eldest who finds changes in things difficult however he would absolutely struggle with 4 x different care givers in 4 days (mum, daycare, nanna1, nanna2).

    Actually the grandmas doing one day a fortnight sounds like a good plan. I didn't even consider the fact that 4 carers in one week would be overload.
    Thanks peeps.
