You're going to get a lot of very opinionated answers on this, just a warning!
I went back to work after five weeks. My husband works second shift, so we only need a sitter for about three hours a day. My parents, thankfully, volunteered to watch him. I want to keep him out of daycare until he's old enough to truly interract with the other kids, I think that's the real benefit of daycare.
Do what you need to do, though!
