I know it is crazy early, but has anyone started daycare shopping yet? Daycares in my area typically have a 13 month waiting list, so all of our friends have told us to get on as many lists as we can as soon as we get a BFP. I can't believe it works that way, but I'm glad we were warned!
Anyway, do you second time moms have any tips or suggestions for choosing a daycare? What are the most important things to look for?
I'm also trying to decide between somewhere close to my job or somewhere close to our house/DH's job. On one hand, I think it would be good to do close to my job so I could visit on my lunch break and maybe even nurse. On the other hand, I think it could be good to do close to our house, so LO could stay in same daycare despite any job changes and could eventually meet friends that are more in our neighborhood/school district. Plus there is a great center that is literally in the same building as DH's job, and it is much more affordable than those near my job (which BTW is a 45 min commute from our house). Which would you recommend?
