I'm working 3rd shift and cant get any sleep. When I get off work in the morning it's draining me. I'm desperate for a little help just so I can sleep.
So I’m back at work since having baby #2. She is 4 months old. I’m back full time now for the first time in 2 years...yikes!!! I was taking my first born to my husbands aunt for baby sitting so there was never any fear or worry about who I’m leaving my child with. Unfortunately she had to let us go and we now have a new babysitter. We have family that takes their children to her but she’s not f... More
I'm torn between two daycares. I dont have the fathers support but I need to start working again in a few weeks. Both are walkable one is a little further and uphill but less expensive. They are both pricey the cheaper one provides diapers but may be a harder commute to work.
I was lucky enough to be able to stay home until my baby turned one. now I have to go back to work and I am looking for daycares. The dad is giving me a really hard time and constantly trying to be cheap or talk me out of daycare and its really stressing me out. It's bad enough I have to leave baby in a daycare. Anyone else deal with this.
Obviously, there are special circumstances where daycare might not be possible or well-fitted to a child's disorder, etc, but for most, day care provides direct and lasting long-term benefits to kids' overall social, mental, and emotional well-being, according to this study. https://www.scarymommy.com/study-daycare-behavior/?utm_source=FB
So, for the past two years I've had my daughter at a family friend's home with her granddaughter who is the same age. Sometimes it goes great, most of the time I feel like it could be better. She is fed well and has a place to nap, but she gets in trouble a lot and often gets reprimanded for saying "no" to putting her hair up or just saying the word in general. She is 2 and is... More

He just started Daycare. This will be his second week. The first 4 days he didn't cry at all. Everyday after that he has been crying. This is his first time in daycare and really being around other kids period. I dont know if he is crying because he is not used to it ( even tho the first 4 days he didnt cry) or if he is crying because of the teacher(s). HELP! Because as i stated he doesn... More
So my baby girl was born August 22, and my work is already asking me to come back in on October 10th. I feel as though this is too soon. She isn’t even two months old yet. When did everyone else go back to work and if you did go back this early where did you find daycare that would take an infant?? I’m just scared that she is just too little. Should I talk to my work and see if there is somethi... More
We have a nanny who is a sweet lady who has been working for us for almost 2 years. She’s a bargain, $15/hr for one kid and $18/hr to watch two. She only works for us 10 hours a week. When we hired her she agreed that she would do housework when our son was asleep, but in recent months she has been getting super lazy. She arrives around 8:30, and my son doesn’t go wake up till 10. She sits arou... More
