yeah i dont have help anywhere, im single, have no older siblings and younger ones dont have the time to be able too, the friends i have are not able to watch him as none of them have babies or even know the first thing about a baby or how to take care of one, and the university im going to does not have day care unfortunately! i have exhausted all my options at the moment, but its going to be a couple months before i start school so i should be able to figure out something by than!!

Try in home daycare. I personally had the help of friends, my sis and her boyfriend.  We scheduled our classes so one of us would always watch her.  even after my sis and bf broke up he watched her for an hour a day for me since he was the godfather.  I had known him since I was 12, so not just some random person.    Now that I think back I realize how lucky I was.  They all thought of her as "our"baby lol and whenever my sis and her old bf or roommates get in touch they all ask  how Jessica (my daughter) is.   It takes a village so don't be afraid to ask for or recieve help.Maybe she is gifted because she spent her childhood at Universtiy???
