I take my 4 month old to Jazzercise 3 days a week, an hour at a time. This is the 2nd time she's gotten sick from being in Daycare! (She caught a very bad sinus infection/cold with a high temp that just wouldn't go away for 2 days! Thankfully with some antibodiotics from her pediatrician, she is slowly getting better!) While I'm very relieved that I stay at home with her; I worry about when I do go back to work! It just seems like Daycares are a hotbed of germs waiting to happen! Especially when you have a newborn who are still trying up build up their immune systems and are far more vulnerable under the age of 1 or 2.
I've made up my mind and am not going back to Jazzercise til she's at least a year old. Her pediatrician doesn't seem to think I should keep her out. But I do. As a mom, I'm going with my gut instinct. It just doesn't seem fair to drag your baby to daycare if all she ever does do is come home sick!
Has anyone had this problem?
