What are anyones plans for going back to work? My LO is going to have to go to daycare. I feel like just leaving her all of a sudden is going to make her feel abandoned at least that first week or so until she realizes she will come home everyday. Im going back to work at 8 weeks, unless something happens and we can work out financially for me to be off 12 weeks. Id love some feedback from BTDT moms too as far as how your LO's did.
My mom did some asking around with friends and I found an in home provider who I love. She is so sweet and I feel Arya is going to get the love and attention I wanted that I felt miserable about when I left the daycare she was going to be going to. The woman cares for a 2 year old and a 16 month old and then will have Arya at 8 weeks. She also has a five year old, but she only gets her on the bus every morning. She kept all 3 sons of a teacher I had in high school from 8 weeks to 5 years old as well. I stayed with her the whole day and was just so happy. I had to share because times have been rough for me emotionally lately and this just felt like such a weight lifted off of me. She will still get the interaction of other children, but more personalized care. Oh did I mention she asked me if I would be pace feeding when I started introducing a bottle to help with the transition to her caring for her and asked if I needed any help on pace feeding techniques?? LO, I feel, is going to be in such great hands.
