Re: What Age did you child start daycare?
DD1 went to a home day care that she started at 3 mo old. She never cried when I dropped her off. ever. She stayed there full-time until she started part-time preschool at age 3 and then continued at that day care part-time until she started full-time pre-K at age 4.
DD2 & DS have had care in our home with 2 different nannies. At 5 mo old our first nanny started and they were never upset when I left. Then we moved and they started with a new nanny at 9 mo old. DD2 was in a stranger anxiety phase and she cried when I left for the first couple of weeks, but from then on both babies have been happy with the nanny. At this point, I'm not planning to put them in day care or preschool until at least age 2.
