My daughter is 4 months old and has been going to daycare since she was 10 weeks. The first couple of weeks she was only there for a few hours a day. Then for about a month she was there from 8-6 and now (this week) she's been there from 8 to 4 because my work schedule changed. In the morning before I take her she pitches these huge fits so I just take her to daycare because I can't get ready for work or do anything else because I'm tending to her and as soon as I take her into the daycare room and she sees her teachers she lights up and is super happy and they say she's happy all day. When I pick her up from daycare which has been around she comes home and she cries until she goes to bed and I feel like she's happier at daycare than she is at home with me and it makes me feel so bad because I feel like I'm not entertaining her enough of doing enough for her. Then I was thinking maybe it's just the change of scenery and maybe it's just more stimulating at daycare but I don't know what to do. I can't make my house full of other babies like daycare is and I feel so bad, like I'm not a good mom even though I know I'm not. Does anyone else's LO do this? How have you handeled it?
