Leaving your newborn. Byeee BG Nassau, BA, Bahamas 5125 posts

How do you do it? :(
I have to go back to work in five weeks if I'm going to survive. I have NO money and welfare isn't nearly enough to support three kids. I work in a daycare in the infant room and I know how it goes...we have to let some babies cry because there aren't enough teachers. It's not always spotless clean, all the babies are usually sick from the constant cycle of germs. I am depressed thinking about leaving him. My older kids love daycare so I'm not as worried about them I guess.
Any advice? 40 hours a week away from my baby :(

No because I work in the infant room.

Exactly, lol. They don't allow employees to bring their children with them? I have never heard of that. Most daycares like to promote mother-child relationships, especially if you plan on bf'ing, it would be so much easier! Maybe ask about a transfer to a different room so that baby will still be in the same building as you.

No. Besides that, I work for a very high end private pay daycare. I can't afford to not use the government assistance for childcare right now. They don't accept it there.
