Recently, I decided to return to work. Starting next week, I'll work Sundays through Thursdays which means putting my 6mo in daycare from 9a-6p Mon-Thur while my husband and I are both at work (he's home on Sun). I researched and asked around for references and found a good place to take him. I really liked the staff there and they seem really happy to answer any questions or address any concerns I have, so I think he'll in good hands.
The problem is my husband's mom keeps calling me every day now begging me not to do this to our son and telling me all kinds of stories she heard from a friend of a friend of a friend, trying desperately to scare me into letting him stay with her, and she's not the best person to entrust with an infant's care (husband agrees). Now friends are weighing in and telling me that she's still a better option than a stranger?
What's so wrong with daycare?
