I sent my son to daycare when he was 17 months, but now I pick him back, I'd perfer to take care of him by myself now. I have the painful experience about that. After my son went to day care, he began to get ill almost every week, cold ,fever, cough... . because the choldren-teather rate is 5:1, usually teacher couldn't care baby more. baby can't eat well, every day he came back, he was so hungry like a small wolf. teacher don't care if baby wear enough or feel hot. they have a nap in a samll simple bed, almost near to the ground. the fee is 800$ per month.
after five months' daycare life, my baby get poor health. so we decide to quit from day care. I suggest you to find a private baby siter, cheaper and good for little baby .
