My son is 9 mths old and I'm about to go tback to work and I don't have any close family or friends that could babysit for me. So my only option is daycare and I would just like to hear from other moms how old their child was when they first enrolled them in daycare and you and your child like it?

My oldest was 8 months old the first time he went to daycare. He was ok with it. My second was 2 years old when he first went to day care. He hated it but after 2 years of being home with mommy or daddy I'm not surprised. My third was 2 months old. He didn't care one way or the other. He was too little then.

Did I like it? No. As soon as I could switch from a traditional day care to a Montessori school I did. Our local Montessori school didn't have classes until they were 15 months. We love his school and he will be there until the end of ninth grade. My son did not know any better in terms of day care or being watched by someone else in our home since he only had the option of daycare. He was content, a happy baby, and he never had difficulty in going to his daycare. In fact, he really enjoyed some of his care providers and had a few he obviously favored more than others. I did not have someone come to my home because in a day care setting it reduces the chances of severe neglect and abuse. There are other service workers in that setting. With one person alone in their home or mine - unless I had cameras hooked up, I would not know if there were times my child was neglected.
