I was there, trust in one months time your child will be back at daycare, just remember to claim daycare on your taxes. My hubby stayed home with the little one while I worked. He worked nights to. After 3 weeks of him not getting any sleep until I came home, he and I re-budgeted for daycare. Trust she will not be in her crib, she will scream until she is changed or fed or played with or whatever.
Have you looked into assistance for daycare? My friend uses a program for her kids. It's income based.
Yes i get assistance but there asking for 207.00 a month. Plus the diapers and wipes i have to buy for them. If i renew my daycare assistance they might ask for more money cause i make a lil more then before. But i just started this job and won't be getting maternity leave. My husband and I agree to pay month and advance on our rent so thing wont be to bad when i have the baby. We still have to buy things for our newborn as well as get ahead.
Look into programs like Early Head Start. If you're income eligible it's absolutely free. Goodluck
