Babysitter / Daycare Dillema Update

In follow up to a previous article…

Well, we have decided to go with the Daycare option. It is more expensive than I expected though. They want $220 for a four day week! WOW!

I went this morning and took a tour of the daycare and watched Ace play with the other kids for a while. He did pretty good. He has never really been around other infants. He is very self entertained, so maybe this will make him more sociable…

I am not 100% comfortable with him being there, but I am just about as confident as I can be sending him into an unknown environment with total strangers to spend the day…

One thing that I think will be a big problem is Ace’s sleeping. He has never slept good on his back. I know it is a SIDS risk to allow them to sleep on his belly, but it is the only way he sleeps comfortably. He will fall asleep on his back if you are feeding him, but will only sleep for 20 minutes or so before waking up.

The daycare will not place him on his belly to sleep! We can not even sign a waiver to allow the daycare to let him sleep that way! He is going to be a screaming lunatic from being so tired. He cries whenever you lay him on his back even when he is in a perfectly good mood.

They said that we need to work with him to get him to roll from his back to his belly. This way he can roll himself over and then they can let him sleep that way. Whatever…we’ll see how this goes…

I think he will do great…except for the sleeping on the belly thing. Hopefully the daycare workers do a god job with him!
