Should I Stick With Daycare?
Hi Everyone. My daughter who is 7 months started daycare 1 week ago. Understandably, my husband and I are having a tough time adjusting. When we drop her off in the mornings, she seems fine but by the time we pick her up she looks like a deer in headlights-it's like she looks right through me! She is crawling and super alert/observant, so we are wondering if daycare at this age is too overstimulating for her. At nights, she just has not been herself. Also, she picked up a cold her first week at daycare-which we were already warned about. I am just beside myself with worry that she is in daycare too early, and it is not a good fit for her to the point where I constantly have a pit in my stomach. And the daycare itself is wonderful, the teachers are very nice and it is clean (and expensive!). It would be pretty tight, but my husband and I could probably swing me taking a bit of time from work, although I have a career I love. Has anyone else dealt with something similar and feeling this torn? Thank you so much!
