DP thinks I'm being silly being so worried 😔 he just found out he might be working the day DS starts childcare. That will scare me so much.
I do know not to cry until DS can't see me lol

Sounds like you've got it all under control I promise you he will be fine! I was terrified just like you. My DD was 2 when she started and had rarely been with anyone else, I had also been a single mum for the most part so it had only ever been me & her. She loved it! There has never been a single tear. Sometimes they surprise you!

Oh I remember the feeling of leaving DS in childcare for the first time. It was heart breaking for me.
DH was fine but that's because he was used to being apart from DS.
I agree with PPs. At this age, the transition is mainly for you. Your DS will be perfectly fine.
You should really tell all your concerns to your center. they have heard it all before and will be able to put your mind at rest.
It's a good way to test their communications skills too

My DD started full time daycare at 15 months. It was incredibly hard but she got used to it (no choice, I had to work). She's 3 now and LOVES it. Our daycare has a real family feel to it and she has really bonded with her kinder teacher.

That's very true, thank you for that tip. We are seeing the main carer on Thursday for a short orientation and then hoping to start him the Monday. The carer I spoke to on the phone seemed so lovely! Said that I was panicking about it and she said oh mums not ready but DS is, she said that he would love it and I'd love the break lol I've gone in a few times with DS and the carers are lovely, but I think on Thursday I will voice all my concerns and see how they go with the anxious first time mum lol
