  • It might be hard for the both of you at first, but she will adjust. Just make sure when you drop her off have calm mannerism and maybe sit there with the sitter for a few minutes so your daughter can get used to the environment.

  • It will be hard for both of you at first, but it will get better. She'll adjust, possibly faster than you do. Try to be as calm as you can until you leave because your baby's reaction is partly a reflection of what she senses from you. Keeping a positive attitude is good for both of you. If your babysitter is experienced, she'll know what to expect as your baby adjusts to the new situation. Don't bug your babysitter to death, but do ask her how your baby is adjusting (it's probably a lot different after you leave than it is while she can still see you).
