Pushy relatives!

I'm a 21 year old mom of a beautiful 3 month old baby girl. Before my pregnancy I was preparing to take a course. Now that my bundle joy is here, I planned on waiting until I am comfortable enough with daycares in my country to go back. But I am receiving so much pressure from family members with no children and some with children to put her at daycare. I don't trust them. Sigh. I just need some positive energy and advice.
Thanks mom's :)

I was a daycare teacher for many years. Until my last daycare I honestly trusted each place with certain age groups without hesitation.

My last place abused my son despite the fact I worked there! So trust your instincts. This is not meant to deter you from daycare it is meant for you to visit multiple centers and even visit them multiple times to see how they function at different times. Most places have afternoon staff so visit the ones you like in the am and pm. Also ask for a trial run for say 1 hour and come back and watch the video in office.

If they say they can't show you the video walk out! They can show you and they all have capability of rewinding.

I regret only looking at my last place from a working standpoint and not as a mother!

You are a mom and an adult. Do what you think is best for you and child! No one else knows what is best for the both of you!

I think you’re taking the right decision. Nothing can be more important than caring for you little one. Hugs to you and your precious baby girl!

If you have a way to support yourself and your child it isn't any of their business when/if you put your child in daycare.
