2.5 months seems to little for daycare but it’s really getting hard trying to get some studies done with a baby. I guess I just need to hear from other moms who went through similar situation. Feeling super guilty but there seems to be no other way. Just need to hear from mom’s who put babies in daycare in terms of suggestions and positive/negative feedbacks. Anything to help with the transition and the mom guilt !!

  • I used to work in a related area of government policy, and did a lot of research on whether child care was bad for really little kids: and the answer is, no. If it’s good quality and not excessively long hours, they’ll be fine.

  • I had my kids a year apart and still managed my study-time by having a routine. Maybe it’s too early at 2.5 months old to have a routine yet. I did study when they went down for a sleep in the morning around 9:30-11am. I found myself waking at 5am and got more done then as babies were all awake at 7 and it was full on for the next couple of hours. Good luck with your studies!

  • I agree with moon mum; study when the kids are in bed, have your partner (or a family member) looking after your little one for some time slots and 1 or 2 days at daycare could help you and won’t harm your baby

  • Im currently studying and I dont have one quite that small but when I started I had a 2,3 and 5 year old. I would mostly just study when they were in bed or id ask my partner for an hour or two on a weekend. Now my middle girl is in kindy 5 days a fortnight and I put my youngest in daycare twice a week to study through the day but I could still probably get a lot done once they go to bed (Im ahead in my course so haven’t rushed through). I think it totally depends on what you are studying, your support network and how you prefer to study to get the best answer for your circumstances. You will figure it out but good luck mumma! You will find a way and you will rock it out!

  • Could you study when your Bub is sleeping?
    What is your little one’s current routine?

  • Cant help you with advice . Good luck
