Anxious and freaked out about childcare!
I’m a first time mom, both hubby and I work and when I returned to work my company was flexible and willing to work with my schedule. I would in the office half of the day then hubby would drop off baby with me and I would work from home rest of the day but now I have to be in the office full shift 3-4 times a week. We’re considering childcare, our baby is 7 months but I’m freaking out! I can’t imagine leaving my baby with strangers. I keep replaying horror stories of babysitters and childcare staff yelling and screaming at my baby and or neglecting him and it’s heart breaking! We can’t afford for me not to work but with cost of childcare I might as well stay home and take care of our baby myself. Any advice? Am I freaking out for no reason? Help!!!
