Guilt is taking over me. I have a 3 mo old daughter (our first baby) and was off on mat leave for 3 months and just returned to work this week. The guilt of having to put her in daycare for 11 hrs a day is murder on my sanity. We hardly get 3 hours with her when we get home. I feel horrible about this. We were bedsharing and still are at this point although we are trying to begin to make the transition to the crib soon. I also feel guilty about this too because I feel like when she sleeps with me, we snuggle and bond and thats more time we spend together even though we are sleeping. I feel guilty for putting her in her crib in another room away from me and we only spend a few hours a night together in the first place.
Now that she is starting daycare and going to have to get used to that, wouldnt it be too much on her to also start trying to transition her to her crib too? I dont want to push all of this (daycare transition and crib transition) off on her at the same time if it will be too much for her to handle right now. What are your thoughts?
