I retuned to work 3 days before dd was 5 months. She started cc at that time five days a week. We dropped a day last year when my chic care benefit went down
I'm a preschool teacher in our bubs room out of the 13 babies we have enrolled across the week 4 are full time another 3 come 3 days a week.

I went back to work 2 days a week when dd was 12 months and she went into daycare for those days. We did that for 2 months and then upped it to 3! She loves it and I can see how much she is getting out of the interaction with other kids!

Subscribing! I am thinking about doing some part time work towards the end of the year, when DD is around 12+ months so I'd like to see what others say.

DS was 10 months - still bawls his eyes out when I drop him off and I feel MEGA guilty even 2 months later! But apparently he stops after 5 mins. He goes 2 consecutive days a week.

She was 1.5 but not really "sent off" because she came to work with me. 2 days at first, then 3, then full time, then we had trouble so I lost it, quit work, pulled her out, then got her in elsewhere for 3 days while I worked those days.
Had I not needed to work, it would have been never.
