my DP used to be like this, tbh I'm not sure if he changed or if I just stopped paying attention! For me I went downhill big time and one day woke up and said right, enough excuses, I'm going to make time to study no matter what is going on around me. It's amazing how that little thought was enough to make me focus on whet I needed to do and ignore DPs whinging/distractions/etc. It was as if I demanded the space and time and help to do what I needed to, and either he went along with it or I just didn't care anymore that he wasn't on board. Either way it's worked.
It's going to be hard but keep your eye on the prize and it will be worth it later. Good luck!

Great job you're doing & be proud of yourself.
Your daughter will be better to have two days at childcare as it won't muck her up as much as only going 1 day per week.
Ignore your DH & do what you can to get what you want in life.

"Mum guilt" is the worst.
I think it sounds like you are doing something great, and I don't think you need to feel bad about it.
Think what a wonderful role model you are being for your DD too! As she gets older she will see that her mum made big sacrifices in order to pursue a career that she loves and that helps to provide for her family.
Don't be hard on yourself, and don't let other people make you feel bad about it. Sounds like you need to surround yourself with some supportive friends to offset any negativity closer to home.
