My baby is 8 months and shes my first and has only been at daycare for two weeks, shes breastfed so only goes for 3 hours a day 3 days a week. so we get to daycare and shes okay when i drop her off (i stay with her for bout 20mins) but when she notices im gone she just constantly cries the whole time until i pick her up, we have a very strong bond (as all mothers and babies do) so its been hard to for me to leave her knowing shes just gonna cry, may i add shes like that with my family and friends aswell. I have been thinking about pulling her out of daycare and keep her home with me, the reason why i wanted her to go to daycare was so that she gets use to being around other kids and people other than me or her father. Being a mother is always an experience and learning different things everyday. i love being a mum and wouldn't change it for the world. if anyone has had the same or similar experience i'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions. Should i leave her in daycare and eventually she 'll get use to it? or should i keep her home with me?
