Can anyone please give advice about their experience with their toddler getting every germ from daycare??
I currently have my DD in daycare one full day per week, just for her own development and to give me one day to myself to get some errands done. BUT she seems to pick up every germ, so is sick ALL THE TIME! And then passes it onto me too - so often we skip daycare every other week to recover. I am pregnant with my 2nd, in my 3rd tri - so looking after a sick toddler at the moment seems like it's more trouble than what that one day is giving us back. So, I'm thinking of pulling her out to save us all the sickdays!
QUESTION: Does anyone have any experience in whether they noticed their toddler reduce the number of sicknesses they got once they pulled them out of regular daycare.
What makes this tricky is:
1) it's really hard to get toddlers back in to daycare in my area if I change my mind later (about a year waiting list!).
2) Once the newbie comes, I might need that one day one-on-one with him.
3) My DD seems to enjoy the day at daycare (although she cries when I leave) - when I pick her up she has always seemed to have a lovely day with painting/craft and playing outside. Plus I think it's healthy for her to have a day away from me (for a little independence - she's quite clingy ATM.)
PLEASE - NEED HELP TO MAKE OUR LIVES A LITTLE EASIER (AND HEALTHIER) AT THIS EXHAUSTING TIME!
