You are doing the best you can for her. It's really hard - if you can, have your husband drop her off - that's probably the hardest part. Daycare can be great. My son started at 3 months and really benefitted from the predictable schedule that was followed. By 6 months he was fussy after a week of being out, because my schedule isn't as rigid (errands, etc move things around). He's 12 months now and points to the door in the morning. Starting a few months ago, it's come down to him going to play with friends. So know that while you are providing for your family that your daughter is going to be happy, and she'll be happiest when she sees you at the end of the day.

IT WILL BE EXTREMELY HARD NO MATTER HOW U DO IT....

TRY REAL HARD NOT TO CALL TOO MUCH BECAUSE IF U HEAR THE BABY CRYING, YOU WILL BE WAY TOO UPSET TO DO YOUR WORK.... U MAY EVEN CRY YOURSELF AND LEAVE EARLY..

JUST KEEP REALLY BUSY ON THE JOB AND THEN GET HOME TO

THE BABY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.......

Well with me it was just crying it out for awhile until I got use to it, but now I know our little guy has fun at daycare. I think it maybe be harder for you, but for your daughter it'll probably be easier. Older kids seem to have a worse time adjusting to daycare because they've been accustomed to be at home.

I found it easier to cope by getting myself excited about getting to go pick my little one up from daycare, and seeing that she knew mom was there, and her smiles and screams of excitement as she got older made it even easier.
