Wow I am really surprised how upset people get over the child care situation of others. I get it if your waiting on a place but if random strangers are paying a professional to look after their children is it really anyone's business. My problem at the moment is I will be working from home part time after bubs is born so I am thinking about occasional care for starters, a couple of half days in family care if I can wrangle it then maybe permanent days a couple times a week. My partner doesn't get that just because I work from home doesn't mean I am a full time stay at home parent and if I don't bring in at least a part time wage eventually we will never pay off credit cards or get a head in life. I don't care what others think of my choices but its hard when family judges you!

I don't know any SAHP who use care full time....seems very odd to me!
I totally understand a mum having to work full time & use day care full time. I respect that, if hate it. But I know for some families, sometimes there no alternative and the money is needed. It's very selfless. Especially as I'm sure they would love to be at home with the kids more.
What would the SAHP do all day with the kids in full time care? How boring.
Everyone talks about how being a mum is the best job on earth, why would you not want to do it?
I'm home with my DD 7 days a week and loving it! We do activities and attention a mothers group though.
However, it's acceptable to put the kids in daycare 1-2 days if you don't work in my opinion. It's probably good for them

I personally wouldn't do it but I don't care if stay at home parents put there kid in day care 1-2 days a week. I do think it's wrong for a stay at home parent to put their child into full time daycare Monday-Friday all day without any exceptional circumstances.
In saying that I wouldn't put my child into daycare while being a SAHM ; I only have 1 child and she's an infant. But I still don't see it changing. When I go back to work. And I'm only going back 2 days a week so mum will have her on the weekday and DH on the weekend. So I'm lucky not to HAVE to send my child to daycare but I still wouldn't send them by choice.

Though if they're the type of people to do that then the child is most likely better off in the care of staff at daycare anyway.

A full time sahp would only get 24-48 hours ccb and no ccr in most circumstances. So it would cost them a fortune to send their child full time. I doubt they would do it if they didn't feel it was needed for whatever reason.
It's no ones place to judge.
I personally have only ever known of 1 person to do it and I'm pretty sure she had PND. It's not like child care centres are full of kids everyday who's mums are at home having 'me time'.

I think you can still get ccr and ccb for the first 12 months of maternity leave. I'll be keeping my toddler in care up to 3 days per week when #2 arrives. If I don't go back to work and no longer get ccr or ccb then I'd still plan to keep him in care for at least one day a week until he starts kindy (preprep) if I could afford it. My son goes to family day care though so not too expensive.
