I thought I had found a childcare provider prior to actually having my baby. Now that she's here and five weeks old, I don't feel like the provider I picked before is the right person to keep her. She's a nice lady and if I had a toddler, I think she'd be great but I just don't feel like there is a place for my infant daughter with her. I feel like my LO would get schlepped around and have lots of propped bottles. Of course, none of these thoughts presented themselves previously.
Short of a financial miracle, I have to return to work in 7 weeks. I am already dreading leaving her. I just feel so overwhelmed still and I have no routine- or at least not one that's conducive to getting up and returning to a day job. It doesn't help that I had postpartum hemorrhaging and surgery last week due to retain placenta.
We live in the City of Fairfax right off 236 by Pickett Road. I have to travel to Woodbridge for work. I'm looking for childcare located somewhere in between. DH works in D.C. so it's the me show as far as getting LO to and from childcare. Do any of you have any suggestions for a provider or center? Thanks for reading through all this...I'm so grateful for your help.
