Its always going to be hard to leave you child in daycare its up to you i would consider placing her at a daycare that you know people at you always can call and check up on your daughter i have a 3year old and i placed him in day care when he was 2year old my fiance and i would have different schedule i would work days and he would work nights it was all because we moved to a different state and didnt really have anyone to babysit now that im on my second child and my son is in daycare my daughter will be attending the same day care as my son think about it if you can work around your husband's schedule then go for it so like that she isnt in daycare so young also babies get sick alot quicker at daycare just saying thats something that you would want to speak to him about good luck

If you feel up to it physically and since its family I personally only feel comfortable with family watching my kids I have a 6 year old and a 2 year old other kids getting baby sick Is a big risk but I would think it should be fine as long as the kids are washing hands and doing good manners I was a nanny for my boyfriends sister's kids for about 1 year and for a while after my last child was born I think I only took off a week and went back to work with my new born and her kids were always sick but my kids never got sick ... 1st had got rsv at 1 mo. And never was in daycare ... Do what's best for you and your family everyone is different and no one can tell you if it's right or wrong .. I now work at a children's hospital and I plan on going back to work asap right after this one comes I've been on bed rest since 29 weeksso I'm ready;) I will be 32 weeks on Friday
