Q:

hello moms, i am strting my work from next month, i have put my baby in daycare,  am feeling guilty that my baby isn't with me and in daycare, he seems to like the daycare but the guilty is killing me!  what to do, if i dont start work soon it would be difficult to start again!

feeling guilty will always be present. even if u start work now or later. the thing u can do is that provide ur baby with the best care u can and know that whatever u r doing is for ur baby only. so march on my friend. u r doing a great job. 😊.

Its a perfectly great idea of putting your baby in a daycare and what more some place that he enjoys too. You wouldn't want to go back to work thinking that your baby is unhappy. Coming to guilt, I'd say its a lil bit of jealousy every mom who leaves her child with another caretaker has and its perfectly normal. :) At the end of the day, no matter how young your child is he will love his mother more than anyone in the world.
