My first was in daycare from 10 months-23 months while we were recovering from my husband's year long lay-off. I had to work to help get us off the assistance we were on when that happened. Thankfully she was able to attend where I worked, got a 50% off discount, was only there for 2-3 times a week and not full days.
I tried working in a daycare for two months when my children were 3 and 8 months, and they would come with me to work and I would work in their rooms, but I quit after two months. I've been home since and don't plan on working.
My kids are now 4, 2, and 4 months. :)
