I been a stay at home mom to my 5 month old daughter and thought I would have been for at least 2 years. My fiance' and I are planning a wedding and eventually want to buy a house so I decided to go back to school and start working again. I will be going to school 5 days a week from 8-2pm for a year. Then I will be working full time after I graduate. I'm scared!!! I don't wanna leave my baby!! what if she gets hurt? what if shes not fed up to my standards? what if she suffocates? How will I get passed the fears?

I know how you feel. I was a pretty much a single mom from the start with my first two kids and had to work 5-6 days a week just to try and pay enough bills so that electric didn't get shut off. I had to put my oldest in day care center for a while and it was so hard. When I finally left my no good husband(spent most of his time in jail anyway) I started my son (I was 5 1/2 mo prego with daughter) at a in home day care. It was great. I found the best person possible. I think people who run a day care out of their house is so much better than a center. In a center it is a one size fits all type of thing. If you don't like what they are doing, then you just pretty much have to not go there any more or just deal with it. At private homes (if they are certified, their house is inspected, they have to take child development classes, have to be cpr and first aid certified, pass background tests-state and fbi, and a bunch of other stuff) they cater more to the children they have and most don't mind if the mom calls a million times.
