Re: What Age did you child start daycare?

I totally agree; start daycare before 12 months or after 18 months. The 1 year mark is just rough with separation anxiety.

DD was nannied by my sister from 6 months to 20 months. Her son is ony 3 months younger than DD, so they had the best time together. That worked perfectly for DD, because she refused to take a bottle. I had to to come nurse her at lunch time. At 20 months, DD started going to a Montessori. "School" in the morning and afternoon daycare. We knew it was a good place after about 2 weeks. DD cried for ~5-10 minutes in the first week and then she warmed up fast. Now I can't get her to leave at pick-up time.

Labels? I don't use labels. I can't even get my label maker to work.
